Winter Seasons Finish With Dragon Boys Soccer, Girls Basketball and Swim & Dive Teams Headed To Championship Play

By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TX – The John Cooper School’s winter season sports finish up with Dragon boys soccer, girls basketball, and the swim and dive teams headed to championship play.


  • 2/1 at Houston Christian • 2-2 Tie
    • Goals by Will Young (2)
  • 2/5 vs St. Andrew’s* • 5-0 W
    • Goals by Will Young (2), Michael Black (2), and Tanure Ewherido




“We finished the regular season as the third-place finisher in the South Zone, a great accomplishment for this group,” said Coach Bryan Sherman. “I am proud of the effort and hopefully, we can make some noise at the SPC tournament next weekend!”

Next up for Dragon Boys Soccer:

  • 2/10-12 at SPC Championships, Fort Worth


  • 2/1 at Houston Christian* • 3-2 L

“Tonight’s loss to Houston Christian was a hard-fought game that I can stand tall and be proud of,” said Coach Amber Clevenger. “It shows that we’ve come a long way as a team because we played this same team, with the same players, in a tournament at the beginning of the season and we fell to them 5-1. Today we fought hard, scored first but still came up short. The early goal by junior Kaitlin Hinch was clutch–she earned that goal! Later in the game after being down 3-1, Elly Principi took a free-kick for us and sunk a beautiful goal. We did everything we could to get the equalizer but we just couldn’t find the net. Friday we take on St. Andrew’s for senior night and I feel confident we will play hard for our deserving seniors.”




  • 2/1 vs. St. Andrews* • 3-3 Tie

“Our final game vs. St. Andrews ended in a tie,” said Clevenger. “It wasn’t the result we wanted but we came out slow and then finally found our energy in the second half. Maddie Van Osdell started off the scoring and then Kaitlin Hinch scored the next two to give us the tie. Although the season didn’t go the way we wanted it to, I was happy to see the team begin to really give the energy we needed towards to end to show great promise for next year!”


  • 2/1 at Houston Christian* • 58-19 L
  • 2/5 vs St. Andrew’s* • 26-25 W

“Resilient is the word that I would use to describe this team,” said Coach B.J. Feuerhelm. “We found ourselves wrapping up what has been a very challenging season but the girls never lost hope and believed in each other. Now we are headed to the playoffs. Having to win two of your last three conference games to secure a spot is never easy, but this group pulled it together and did just that! I could not be more proud of their buy-in throughout the season and now they get to reap the rewards.”

Though their season ended before we wanted it, this group helped lead us to our best season since 2014. Thank you, seniors!
