Baseball

The baseball team holds many historic seasons under its belt, and the team has a 4-5 win-loss ratio this season. This year is the first season under new head coach Justin Reitz, who also teaches in the Green Hope special education department. Jacob Krebs (’24) is both an outfielder and a renowned batsman with a 0.571 hitting record in the conference. Harrison Brewer (’24) is another outstanding senior who is 3-0 when pitching on the mound, leading the team in appearances. Ryan Luo (’26) is just a sophomore but is 14th in the state with 12 runs batted in — the most of any sophomore in the state. Some of the important games remaining are against Panther Creek at home on April 5 and senior night against Sanderson on April 17. 

Men’s Tennis

The men’s tennis team has started with a strong 9-1 season thus far. Top two players Jimin Jung (’24) and Aiden Xu (’25) are critical assets to the team’s successes and have contributed to the team’s astounding record. Of the team’s victories, seven of the nine have been 9-0 wins against the opposing team, meaning that the team won all matches in the lineup. The tennis team has also contributed to Green Hope’s Fight for 55 with a 6-1 win against Panther Creek. In past years, the Falcons have not failed to serve up accolades for the school, and brought home the 4A State Championship last season, paving the way for a promising remainder of the season. 

Women’s Lacrosse

Women’s lacrosse also holds an impressive 5-3 winning record. Delaney Cowen (’24) is a lead scorer for the team and contributes heavily to the offense. Riley Chirichella (’24) is one of the team’s biggest defensive assets. With the season moving forward, the games against Holly Springs on April 9 and against Apex Friendship on April 11 are some of the ones to watch out for this remaining season that students should show up to support. 

Men’s Lacrosse

The varsity men’s lacrosse team holds a 1-4 win loss record with an explosive 11-1 win over Wake Forest High School. Jameson Walsh (’24) plays defensive midfielder and has made critical contributions in preventing opponents from scoring. Jack D’Agostin (’25) is also an asset to scoring and making explosive plays throughout games. The competition that the team faces is rigorous with five in conference opponents being some of the best teams in the state. Two of the best games to watch left in the season are against East Chapel Hill at home on March 20 and against Panther Creek at home for senior night on April 16. 

Track and Field

Track and field has sped up their progress with many distinguished athletes at just a few weeks into the season. Cameron Gregg (’24) is ranked first in hurdling in the region. Gregg has his sights set on attending nationals and pursuing athletics at the next level. Jayden Grier (’24) holds an encouraging start to his first season at Green Hope, after transitioning from basketball to track and field, he immediately became one of the team’s best throwers. Some of the best meets left are against Panther Creek on April 4 and senior night against Cary on April 25. 

Softball 

Softball had an aggressive start going 4-1 over their first 5 games including an impressive win over their first conference opponent Middle Creek. After facing some of the states best teams, the Falcons now stand 4-5 overall. Mary Buckner (’24) can play any position at any time as required by her team, and she has been on varsity all four years and is committed to Guildford College to continue her athletic career. Buckner is also a source of leadership for the team and actively coaches on the field during games. Hannah Richardson (’24) is also a four year varsity player and is not only the starting pitcher but also versatile in both the in and outfield. As one of the team’s fastest player, Richardson can also lay a perfect bunt on any type of pitch. Rachael Baldyga (’26) is just a sophomore but has the same mental prowess and understanding of the game as the rest of the seniors. She is an accomplished power hitter and starts at centerfield while also contributing at pitching when the team needs her. Ishannvi Gummadi (’24) is the starting catcher and contributes heavily to team, even hitting the game winner against Middle Creek. Senior night against Cary on May 2 and games against Green Level on April 2 and April 26 will be great games for students to attend and cheer on their fellow Falcons. 

Women’s soccer

The female Falcons have had several key players across all grades make massive contributions on the field. The women’s soccer season so far is 1-4-1. Kelcey Morris (’26) plays holding center middle and has contributed heavily to the defense. Avery Schontz (’27) plays attacking center mid and, despite being a freshman, is extremely technically skilled and possesses great knowledge of the game. Abigail Brown (’26) is the goalkeeper and despite only playing for 2 years and being a dual sport athlete with basketball in the winter sports season, is a key factor in blocking opponents from scoring. Hanna Lee (’24) is 1 of the team’s 3 captains and also one of the team’s leading defenders. A few critical games left in the season are away at Panther Creek on March 20,  Panther Creek on April 24 at home and senior night May 6 against Cary.
