Eagle athletics

Another year has come and gone for Lititz Christian School (LCS). There are many facets of having a church-run school that are rewarding, but for a sports buff like me, nothing beats following our athletic teams throughout the year. Below are the athletic highlights for our 2005/2006 High School sports program here at LCS:

Boys Varsity Soccer: The boys were able to bring home the first annual Agape Cup with a 4-0 victory over Dayspring Christian Academy.

Girls Varsity Volleyball: The girls won the CCAC Championship and came within one game of reaching the state tournament.

Girls Junior Varsity Volleyball: The girls finished a spectacular season with a very impressive 10-0 undefeated season.

Girls Varsity Basketball: Our girls beat a public school; a double-A school; and got to the CCAC championship game. They went on to win a PIAA district game, reaching the semi-finals. This was the first team of any sport in school history to qualify for state playoffs. Their final record was 20-9. Angie Rapchinski shattered a multitude of school records including:
  • Lifting her career scoring to 1,373 points (2,000 points is now within sight)
  • Averaged 21.5 points per game
  • Scored 623 points for the season
  • Grabbed 296 rebounds for the season
  • Shot 45% from the field for the season

Varsity Track: They set 3 new school records on the boy’s side and 4 new school records on the girl’s side and brought home hardware from CCAC and MACSA meets.

Boys Varsity Basketball and Girls Soccer: Though both of these team’s records seemed disappointing, these two teams showed great growth over the course of their seasons and should be tough teams to contend with next year.

Each season, the highest athletic award possible at LCS is given to one male athlete and one female athlete. This is called the Eagle Award and is determined by the vote of all coaches over the course of the year and encompasses all three sports seasons. It is given to the outstanding male and female athletes who show the best all around character, ability and accomplishments. This year’s Eagle Award recipients were Eric Rohrbach and Erika Bernheisel, who are both seniors.

And let’s not forget our Junior High girls who went undefeated in the league in basketball and undefeated over the entire season (league and non-league games) in soccer.
