Green Level Sports Off to a Fast Start

B. Hays, Sports Editor


In Green Level’s first full year with a full school, numerous athletic teams are showing their potential early in the season. Get caught up on the fast start for Green Level’s fall teams.


Women’s Tennis:  Less than a year after winning Green Level’s first ever regional championship, the Green Level Women’s Tennis team is off to a hot start. The team opened their season against two non-conference teams, defeating Research Triangle (7-0) and Willow Springs (9-0). They play Cary High tonight with the possibility of going to 3-0.


Women’s Golf: Women’s golf started their season at Macgregor Downs last week. It was their first match in the new SWAC conference. They finished 3rd place out of 8 teams, finishing only 3 strokes behind Green Hope.


Volleyball: Coming off a state playoff appearance last year, expectations are high for Green Level Volleyball. Starting the season with a clean sweep (3-0) against WIllow Springs, the Lady Gators traveled to Cardinal Gibbons to take on the defending State Champions. After losing the first two sets (20-25, 16-25), the Gators rallied in the 3rd and 4th to tie it up (25-18, 25-21) and force a deciding 5th set which they won 15-11 for a huge statement win. They followed up that victory by defeating Heritage 3-0. 


Men’s Soccer: The men’s soccer team is also off to a fast start with a 12-0 victory over WIllow Springs, a 2-1 victory over Athens Drive, and another 9-0 victory over Willow Springs. The team will take on a high powered Broughton squad tonight. To watch highlights of their win against Athens, click here.


Football: The football team won their first game 35-0 over South Wake. The game was not completed due to thunderstorms, but the writing was already on the wall and many of the South Wake players were unable to make the 11am reschedule the following day. Football will travel to Gibbons this Friday to try and improve to 2-0. 


Cross Country: In the boys (11th and 12th grade) 3000 meter run BaySix kickoff, Alex Fernandez came out victorious with a time of 9:20.65, defeating Dylan Core of Broughton by 7 seconds. 167 players competed in the division. In the boys (9th and 10th grade), Will Boggess and Anil Chintapalli both notched top 10 finishes in their division. In the girls (11th and 12th), Campbell Dille finished 2nd place with a time of 11:42.99, 6 seconds off first place. In the girls (9th and 10th), Eliza Greengrass came in fifth place with a time of 11:56.23. Congrats to all of the top performers at the BaySix kickoff, and a special shout out to Alex Fernandez for taking home the W! 


Go Gators!
