SACS – The 2018 Henderson Cup Champions
San Antonio Christian School has captured its first Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) Henderson Championship Cup as the best all-around Class 5A private school in Texas. SACS collected the second most total athletics points in any TAPPS classification during the 2017-18 school year.
“To win the Class 5A Henderson Cup and finish as one of the top two athletics programs in any classification is an overwhelming testament to the tremendous blessings being poured upon our school,” said SACS Superintendent Dr. Jake Walters. “The SACS family and all of San Antonio should be extremely proud of what our students have accomplished during the past year.”
To recognize state champions in art, academics, vocal and instrumental music, and team sports, TAPPS awards The Henderson Championship Cup to the school in each classification that accumulates the most points in all competitions. The Class 5A Henderson Cup traveling trophy will reside on the SACS campus for the next year and will have a plate added recognizing the Lions as the 2017-18 winner.
SACS athletic teams accumulated 81 total points, second only to Class 2A Shiner St. Paul with 84 total athletics points. The Lions were powered by a Class 5A State Championship in Boys Cross Country and Regional Championships in Boys and Girls Track & Field, Girls Cross Country, Volleyball, Girls Soccer and Baseball. Cheerleading contributed in the Fine Arts category with eight State Runner-Up points.
“Championship hearts begin at home. On behalf of our coaches and Athletics administrative staff, I want to thank our parents for the opportunity to work with the finest young men and women anywhere,” said Athletic Director Brandon Parrott. “Just as SACS provides a Christ-centered education, our Athletic Department strives to provide Christ-centered competition. This year we proved that you can win the right way with God’s love out front of every race.”
SACS scored a school record 89 points in the overall Henderson Cup standings. SACS girls athletics teams scored 42 total points, tops in Class 5A and tied for fourth in all classifications. The Lions boys athletics teams scored 39 total points, tops in Class 5A and fifth among all classifications. The SACS cheerleaders scored eight points in the Fine Arts division to complete the Lions scoring.
SACS also would like to recognize and congratulate the Class 4A Henderson Cup Champion Boerne Geneva School and the Class 1A Henderson Cup Champion Bulverde Bracken Christian School. The San Antonio area is well represented among the most outstanding private and parochial schools in Texas.
