The boys golf team entered its 2nd season excited to build on the momentum from year 1. Joining Coach Fields this year was Coach Dan Lankford, the local golf pro at Quail Ridge Golf Course. The Crusaders won most of their matches this year and dominated conference opponents all season long. They ended up winning the conference tournament and sweeping the regular season conference standings. The Crusaders finished the season with 5 all conference golfers. They missed qualifying for states, as a team, by only a few strokes this season. We are excited to see the continued growth of this program next season.


MS Girls

Record: 5-7
The middle school girls soccer team was an extremely young team this year, as most 8th graders ended up making the JV or Varsity roster. Despite their youth, this team played with grit, determination, and a passion for the game that had every fan on the edge of their seats all season long. Most games were decided by less than a goal and with the majority of the team being middle schoolers next year, we are excited to see what they accomplish.

JV Girls

Record: 8-3
The JV Girls soccer team led by Coach Watters and Coach Kelso consisted of eight core players, and from game to game, they would either invite up middle schoolers or allow varsity substitutes to fill out their roster. This led to many girls having to learn multiple positions which greatly enhanced their knowledge of the game of soccer. This knowledge was put on display as the girls even managed to upset two varsity teams this season. Way to go ladies!

Varsity Girls

Record: 14-7
From the beaches of Alabama to the State Championship, the varsity girls soccer team overcame injuries, long bus rides, and tough opponents. The varsity girls soccer team entered the 2A classification as a dark horse in the state playoff picture. Early in the season the girls traveled to Alabama where they took on 3 of the top 50 nationally ranked teams and finished with a record of 1-2 in the tournament. Despite their losses, these tough opponents put the rest of the state association on notice that the varsity girls soccer team at Grace Christian School was going to be a tough out in state playoffs this year. Led by senior forward and all-American Zahra Fepessi, the Crusaders continued to dominate conference play and won the regular season championship.



Record: 10-1
The Lady Crusaders Softball team was a force to be reckoned with this past season. They came out the gate strong, and this young team dominated the majority of their opponents by a landslide. They would eventually be named Conference Champions this season. Well Done Ladies!


Record: 12-5
Led by Freshman, All-State Pitcher, Haley Pugh the Lady Crusaders would finish the season undefeated in Conference Play and would advance to the State Quarter-Finals as the #5 Overall Seed. The Crusaders were led Offensive by the Hitting of Annika Johanson and Haley Hughes. On the defensive side of the ball they were led by the McDouglad Sisters and Annika Johanson.



Record: 4-7
The young, but talented Crusaders Baseball team took to the diamond this year with just one 8th grader on the Roster. While their record does not reflect this most of their games were decided in the final inning and the outcome could have gone either way. We are excited to see this young team step back on the diamond next season.


Record: 5-5
One word that comes to mind when I think of this JV team is talent. This young JV team, which consisted of mostly middle schoolers, had a very competitive and successful season. We can’t wait to see what these boys will accomplish next season.


Record: 20-4
Led by NC State Commit Brandon Crabtree the Crusaders put the rest of the 2A State Association on notice as after their first loss of the season, they rattled off 17 consecutive wins. Their goal of back to back State titles will have to wait for another year as they fell short and finished 3rd in the State.
