Athletics Week in Review
A Review of the Past Week in Providence Academy Athletics
Middle School Athletics will be offering a boys baseball travel team option as well a North Suburban Parochial Schools League (NSPSL) teams option. The Travel team will consist of 6th and 7th graders and the NSPSL team will consist of 8th-6th graders. Both teams will participate in NSPSL.
We will be holding a tryout process for those who are interested in playing. The tryout is required for all who would like to participate in Middle School Baseball. The travel team will participate in weekend tournaments throughout the spring and summer months (details and official tournament dates are currently pending). If your child would not like to commit to weekends and travel, they still need to attend the tryout for NSPSL team placement.
The try out will be held on 1/25 from 3:30PM until 5PM in the Providence Academy dome. After the tryouts have concluded, the coaches will communicate with families to notify them of the teams. A second registration will be required to cover tournament fees and will be shared with the families after teams are made. If your child opts out of the travel option or does not make the travel team, NO additional fees will be required outside of the $225.00 registration fee to participate in the NSPSL.
We are hoping to have a travel team at the 7th grade level, however 6th graders are invited to try out.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Morgan Emmans Middle School Athletics Director.

In a Tuesday (12/20) night matchup against Holy Family, the Lions fell 8-2.
The boys hope to get back on track next Wednesday as they make the trek up to Warrod in a 5pm matchup against Warroad.
Tuesday the Lions traveled to St. Paul to play their first conference game of the season against Mounds Park Academy. The JV team took home a convincing victory in the early going, dominating from start to finish.
The Varsity squad got off to a slow start but quickly found their groove scoring 47 points by the 1st half. The Lions were paced in scoring by Freshman Maddyn Greenway who had a double double with 33 points and 10 rebounds. Senior Grace Counts followed behind with 16 points and 9 rebounds of her own. Brooke Hohenecker and Hope Counts both joined the double digit club respectively with 10 and 11 points each.
The Providence Academy boys basketball team took on Mayer Lutheran on the road Tuesday. The C Squad and JV teams both fought hard and showed improvement on communication and teamwork.
The varsity team looked to build on their improvements over the last few games in a non conference road test. They played a solid first half, with Senior Dylan Perrill leading on both sides of the ball, and carried a slim lead into halftime. The game tightened up in the second half as Mayer Lutheran climbed back into the game. The Lions were able to hold on and win the game by one, securing their first win of the season! It was a great team effort and the boys will have a much needed holiday break.
They will play two games in the St Cloud area on the 29th and 30th. We want to thank the fans and parents who made the journey to support us on the road.
