Meredith’s Head Soccer Coach Paul Smith will host the first annual Elite Winter Soccer Camp Saturday, February 2, 2013, for high school players committed to excellence on the field. Smith, his staff and a selection of players will lead the one-day camp filled with technical skills training and competition. Campers will enjoy an opportunity to kick off the “winter thaw” in preparation of school and club spring seasons.
While the Avenging Angels basketball squad continues with their season this week hosting Southern Virginia University in a non-conference contest Thursday, the tennis team is busy preparing for their season opener slated for Wednesday, February 6, at home. Doubles play begins at 3 p.m. on the Meredith courts.
Head Tennis Coach Paul Huch welcomed back two-time USA South Player of the Year Puja Patel, as well as Caroline Hunt, all-conference first team recipient, and Mary Lawrence Newton, who received second team honors. Betty Edwards and Mollie Musgrave bring valuable senior leadership to a team with five freshmen.
Shruti Bajpai, Hallie Corbett and Mack Thompson worked with Huch during the fall season and competed in two September tournaments. Taylor Brennan and Becky O’Brien add depth to the squad this spring.
