  • SGS Boys Soccer Team Wins 1B/2B State Championship

    With goals from seniors Michael Thew and Stow Miller, the Saint George's Dragons claimed the State 1B/2B Boys Soccer Championship over Tacoma Baptist in Sumner, Washington on Saturday, November 21. The Dragons finished off a 15-4 season with the state trophy, which the team last won in 2000.

    "I pulled these guys aside when they were freshmen, and told them they have the ability to be special," said head coach Heidi Melville in a Spokesman-Review article on the win. "They proved me right, and I like being right."

    The Dragons ran through the state tournament without giving up a goal. After a 2-0 win over Prescott in the quarterfinals, senior Michael Hamilton's hat trick gave SGS a 3-0 win over defending champions Mount Vernon Christian in the semifinals. SGS keeper Noah Haliburton-Link only saw 4 shots on goal in the championship game, while the Dragons pressed the Tacoma Baptist Crusaders with 16 shots on goal, two of which found the net.

    "We had a team that had the ability to play tough," said Stow Miller in the S-R article. "Everyone gave their best effort, and it showed in the score." See a Photo Gallery of shots from the championship game. Congratulations, Dragons!
