St. John Paul II Varsity Saints Win GHCAA Championships

The Varsity Saints of St. John Paul II Catholic School (StJPII) swept the Fall athletics season winning first place in the Greater Houston Catholic Athletic Association (GHCAA) city championship tournaments in Soccer and Boys Cross Country. This is one of the winningest single seasons in school history. As the school opened its doors in 1988, the athletics programs didn’t begin until 1994 with only a few sports. Since then, StJPII has won 21 championship titles. The volleyball team finished in 2nd place and both the football team and the girls cross country team finished the season in 3rd place.

The Saints were led by Coach Ade (soccer), Sandy Morales (volleyball), and Annette Colgan (cross country), Mike Hertlein (football) and Kim McCurry (cheer).

StJPII Athletics Director Mary Beth Hewitt explained, “I am extremely proud of our teams and coaches this year for their tremendous victories and commitment throughout this season. The Saints displayed amazing athleticism and the entire StJPII community is overjoyed for our championship teams!” These wins are especially important this season because much of the student body was affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Additionally, StJPII will be the first Catholic school serving grades Pre-K through 8th grade to add two lacrosse teams to its lineup later this year.
