Varsity Girls End a Fantastic Season at the Final Four

 

The Lady Eagles lost a close game to Beaumont Legacy 52-46 to close out an amazing season. A two-point 3rd quarter made it tough as the Lady Eagles fought back from a double digit deficit and just fell short after a great 4th quarter run. Evan Thomas led the way with 22 points followed by Madison Wehring with 11 points and Chloe Swedlund with 10 points. Evan Thomas and Madison Wehring were named All Tournament players.  The Lady Eagles ended the season as Regional Champs with 24 wins.  We are so proud of you, girls.

Will Hauser and Vonte Green where forces at the plate, and Thomas Voorheis picked up the save against Frassati Catholic. The Eagles head into spring break poised to make another run deep into the playoffs.

Teacher Spotlight: Shannon Strange


1. Where are you from and where did you grow up?

I’m from Southern CA, and still claim it as my homeland, even though I’ve been in TX for 11 years.


2. Tell us about your family.

Married to Mark (a native Texan) for 22 years, who works for Cy Fair ISD.  I have two daughters at RCS: Allison (12th) and Samantha (10th). I am blessed!


3. When did you realize you wanted to become a teacher?

When I started tutoring Spanish in college--I realized it would just be easier to teach Spanish well in the first place than to tutor other teachers’ students who didn’t understand.  Plus, I love teenagers. (Yes, you read that correctly--teenagers are my absolute favorite.)


4. If you could have any other job, what would it be?

I would love to be a missionary because there is nothing more profound than leading others to Christ.


5. Who is your primary role model?

Jesus Christ.  As for human role models, there are too many to mention but there was a woman named Debbie that took the time to encourage me in high school during some really tough times.  She’s the reason I decided to work with teenagers.


6. What are your hobbies?

Running speech meets, reading speech books, solving mysteries, laughing, chatting, family movie nights, anything competitive (that’s non-athletic)


7. What is the most rewarding thing about your job?

Relationships with my students.


8. If you could live anywhere else, where would it be?

Anywhere COLD; with real winters and snow!  I hate the heat.


9. What is your all time favorite movie?

Anne of Green Gables 1 & 2


10. What food is like a guilty pleasure to you?

dark chocolate


11.  What is your favorite Bible verse/Bible character and why?

I love both Ruth and Naomi. Naomi had a strong testimony that spoke volumes to Ruth, and Ruth had the guts to stand up for truth and turn her life around, in spite of everything she had ever known.


12. What is the last book you read?

The list is very long...but they were all potential speech meet pieces, of course.  ;)


13. What do you remember most about elementary, middle, or high school?

I loved school in general--it was an environment I thrived in, and I pushed myself hard to succeed. I guess that’s why I never left the school scene.


14. What is a super power you would like to have?

Mary Poppins’ ability to clean the house by “snapping”.  PLEASE!!


15. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Laziness & not taking responsibility for your own actions


16. Describe yourself in 3 words.

Competitive. Passionate. Principled.


17. What is your worst fear?  

Failure


18. How long have you been teaching?  

21 years (teaching & tutoring)


19. Any advice for RCS students?

Don’t settle for less than God’s best for your lives:  in goals, in relationships, in accomplishments, in decisions, in values, and NEVER in your relationship with Him.


20. Memorable Quote?

"A true leader is someone who can inspire people they don't like as well as they can inspire people that they do."  (Personal quote)
