The Panthers had a great 2014-2015 spring athletic season!
Our golf season proved to be very successful for two Presbyterian Panthers. Sean O'Neal (Class of ’17) placed in the top 5 in every tournament this season and won the Hermann Park Four Team Invitation in late March. Nicholas Yum (Class of ‘’16) played great as well this season, culminating in a season low round of 46 in the final round of the HJPC Championship Tournament.

The girls lacrosse team had a good season finishing with a 5-4 record overall. The girls improved throughout the spring and learned important lessons on teamwork. In the HJPC tournament opening round, the girls beat Kinkaid by one point to advance to the semi-finals before losing to eventual champion St. John's School. Since joining the conference, this was the first tournament game won by a PS girls lacrosse team.
The boys varsity lacrosse team showed good dedication and resilience throughout the season. Some highlights from this season included a 8-5 victory against Pershing, and a 11-1 victory against The Village School. The team just came up short in this year’s HJPC Tournament against St. John’s with a 10-4 loss. Overall the team grew stronger as the season progressed and are in a good position to make a run for the HJPC title next season.
The boys junior varsity lacrosse team had a lot of new faces. The JV Panthers dominated a younger and less experienced Pershing team, winning 9-2 in their first game of the season. The Panthers traveled to first year program First Baptist Academy, losing a hard fought defensive game by a score of 2-1. The team came together and showed their resilience winning against St. Frances later in the season. Overall the JV Panthers finished 2-6 and shows promise to improve next year.
Thank you to Nancy Baltodano and our parents for taking candids of our teams in action.
