We had an incredibly busy week for our athletes who dominated their opponents. Well done, Bishops!
Whether you are trying a sport for the first time or you're at the top of your game, we have athletic options suited for you—with more than 30 boys, girls and co-ed teams across 18 competitive sports.
VES Bishops value health and wellness, teamwork, sportsmanship and the challenge of a long-standing rivalry. And we're known for the respect we show our competitors and referees. A result of their hard work and commitment, our teams and athletes find success at conference, state and national levels.
We believe it's important to learn to be part of a team, and there's no better place to build life skills than when you are working together toward a common goal.
As a freshman, you will participate on a sports team, and we encourage all students to continue with a sport or afternoon program that supports their well-being throughout their time at VES.
With three weeks remaining in the season, our work and time together continues here at the Old 160.
In a very close, hard-fought match, VES tennis ended up prevailing over Trinity Episcopal School of Richmond 6-3.
Last week, prior to Fall Break, varsity volleyball defeated Carlisle 3-0, varsity soccer dominated Hargrave Military Academy 4-0, and field hockey lost to EC Glass 2-0. On Saturday, football brought home another win, defeating Broadwater Academy 30-20.
VES has always had a proud tradition of siblings being involved at the highest level of athletic performance. This fall is no exception, with several brothers and sisters representing VES at the varsity level both on the courts and fields.
It's been a tough week for our athletic teams. Football suffered their first loss to Blessed Sacrament Huguenot 20-12, varsity tennis lost to North Cross 5-4 and Norfolk Collegiate 6-3, but came back to defeat Cape Henry Collegiate 5-4, which you can read about here.
