Spring sports have had a tough start getting in games due to mother nature. Many teams have had games postponed or cancelled this past week due to wet field conditions. This week is hoping to look promising as temperatures warm up and the weather dries out. Let us recap how each of our teams performed last week.


Men’s Tennis: The Falcons started strong in their first two competitions of the year, beating Cary and Athens Drive. The team beat the Imps 8-1 and defeated the Jaguars 8-0. Green Hope travels to Durham today to take on Riverside.


Women’s Lacrosse: The Lady Falcons lacrosse team took on Millbrook in a non-conference matchup. Green Hope was able to take the win by a score of 8-7, playing without captain Juliana Defalco. Green Hope travels to Heritage today for their next game.


Softball: The team played two out of the three scheduled games last week. The first was against Millbrook, where the team fought hard but fell short by a score of 9-7. The second game was against a tough Holly Springs team where the Falcons could not pull out the win. Green Hope will travel to Sanderson next week for a matchup against the Spartans.

Women’s Soccer: In their first game of the season, the team played a tough Broughton side and fell short 1-0. The team followed up the next day playing Wakefield, losing 2-0.
