Published December 23, 2014

SANDY SPRINGS—The St. Jude the Apostle Jaguar Sports Association capped off a successful fall season. Six different teams from two of its three fall sports programs finished as champions in the Catholic Metro League of Atlanta. The fall sports program includes cross country, soccer and volleyball.

St. Jude teams crowned champs include: the under 10 boys and girls soccer, coached by Jason Oliver and Dean Kalinowski, respectively; the under 12 boys and girls soccer, coached by Mikhail Bilyy and Ed Bohm, respectively; the under 14 boys soccer, coached by Cam Davis; and seventh- and eighth-grade volleyball, coached by Brandon Brown.

The cross country team finished in third place during the Sept. 25 Wesleyan meet in Peachtree Corners. It’s the highest finish ever for the St. Jude team, which is coached by Kathleen Woods.

The St. Jude the Apostle Jaguar Sports Association, which has been in existence since 1999, seeks to foster “sportsmanship in a Catholic environment.” In addition to the fall sports program they offer basketball in the winter and baseball, golf and tennis in the spring. The fall sports program, which had 309 participants, is open to registered St. Jude School students and their siblings, as well as all children of St. Jude parishioners and alumni.
