This year the athletic department joined the Texas Association of Private and Parochial School (TAPPS) league, the largest league for private schools in Texas. We are excited about this in hopes that it will help make our department stronger as we strive for excellence. Our district is the San Antonio area which has proven to be very stiff competition. This year the volleyball and basketball teams did very well with it being our first year in the league. As we continue in this league we have hopes to earn a state championship.
