This Years Best Moments in South Lakes Sports

It has been a fantastic year for South Lakes sports. The Seahawks produced a number of All-district and Regional teams for different sports across the year. Prior to spring sports starting,  here is the list of best moments for South Lakes athletics so far this year. 


Starting off with the Girls Field Hockey team, who had a fantastic season, going 14-7 and making the Regional tournament. The Seahawks started their season off strong with a 6-0 win over their cross town rival, the Herndon Hornets. The Field Hockey team then went on an impressive run winning 10 of their 12 games. They then went onto the District Tournament, beating Centreville and Oakton before losing to Madison. Regardless, the Seahawks made the Regional Tournament, but unfortunately lost in the Regional Championship to Yorktown. This was a tremendous season for the South Lakes Girls Varsity Field Hockey team as they proved to be a difficult team to stop throughout their season. 


Next up, is the football team who beat Westfield for the first time in school history. Westfield has always been one of the best schools in Northern Virginia for years, but the Seahawks beat the powerhouse Bulldogs with a score of 20-19. South Lakes had an up and down season, losing their first two games then winning their next two. The Seahawks finished the season 6-6, but the highlight of their season was the one-point win over Westfield for the first time in their history. 


Another great moment for South Lakes sports this season was the Seahawks Gymnastics team qualifying for States. The South Lakes Gymnasts team won Regionals and finished 4th in Virginia. The Seahawks were headlined by sophomore gymnast Abby Anderson. She won 1st place as the Northern Region Champion and placed 7th all around at States.  


The South Lakes Boys Basketball team was a dominant force all season long, finishing the year with the record of 24-3. The Seahawks started the same five seniors throughout the year and had excellent depth in every position. The Seahawks only suffered two losses in the regular season to the hands of James Madison and Stone Bridge. They then continued to win the District and Regional championships. South Lakes then beat Fairfax in the State quarterfinals but lost to Hayfield in the semifinals who then went onto win the state championship. 


And finally, the best moment in South Lakes sports this year is the Boys Track and Field team winning States in the 4×200 and 4×800 and going to Nationals in New York. These Seahawks dominated all year long, winning districts and regionals to make states. The girls track and field team also made states and finished fifth. 


This has been a fantastic year so far for South Lakes sports as multiple teams won Regionals and Districts, and States. Way to go Seahawks!
