University High School’s fall sports have come to an end, with many of the players and coaches proud of how hard the players have practiced and played.

For boys’ soccer, they had a win-loss record of 7-9 with 1 tie.  Coach Nicole Silenok had said that “the season was a little inconsistent but had gotten better towards the end of the season.” Coach Silenok had felt that there was huge improvement throughout the season.

The cross country team made it far this year, with Catherine Hockenhull ’25 and Tanmay Thaker ’24 placing at the Capitol Region Athletic League (CRAL) meet, and the team one point off from winning. Coach Aaron Brown had said “there are not many people because of covid.” Coach Brown had felt the season went really well, but wished that the team had won.

Girls soccer, which is a co-op with Classical Magnet, had ended their season with a win-loss record of 8-4 and 3 ties, which is one of the best seasons the team has had in 9 years. A midfielder, Loraine Rivera ’25 had said that the defense was really good. She had also felt that the season went good especially because they got into states, which she said is the furthest the season has ever gotten.

Volleyball had made quite an improvement from last year’s season, with this season’s win-loss record of 16-7 and last season’s being 5-12. The girls won second place in the CRAL. Coach Carson Dunn had said “I am really happy and proud of the girls for working hard.” Coach Dunn had felt that there was a huge jump from last year and there was a huge accomplishment (making state tournament) made. Coach Dunn felt that the overall season was good.

The football team is undefeated and preparing for the state playoffs.

With all of UHSSE’s fall sports teams making good accomplishments this season the school’s staff and students are proud and happy on how far their teams have gone and hope for a good winter sports season.
