The Oaks controlled the action, winning nearly every 50/50 ball and repeatedly stringing together passes. Jessie Cavolt handled everything that came her way in goal. Every player saw time on the pitch for the Oaks.

“Our girls were committed, energized, communicative and together,’ Coach Kai Evans said after the game.

Big Inning Carries Hitters

DSC_6315A four-run fifth inning carried the Oaks varsity baseball team to an 8-3 win over Summit Christian in Newport News on Monday.

Sophomore Paul Mahoney had two hits, two walks and scored three times and senior Mark Howlett pitched five strong innings.

Collegiate scored first in the second inning when Mahoney doubled and scored when Jackson Burke reached on an error. Mahoney again manufactured a run in the fourth inning with a walk, two stolen bases, and a wild pitch.

The Oaks broke open the game with four runs after two were out in the fifth inning. Joe Morrison reached on an error before sophomore Jimmy Hurley singled with two outs. Morrison went to third on a botched pickoff play and then scored when Cabell Thomas reached on an error. Mahoney’s single plated a pair before eighth grader Hunter Flora singled to score the fourth run.

The Oaks added a run in the sixth inning when Burke walked and scored on Howlett’s triple to center and another in the seventh when Thomas singled, stole a base, and scored on Burke’s single.


Earlier, the Oaks dropped a game 4-1 to Norfolk Academy despite a strong pitching performance from sophomore Reid Wilkinson.

Tuesday: Time to Train the ‘dogs

DSC_5024Rivalry day is here.

Four Oaks varsity teams play the ‘dogs from Norfolk Academy on Tuesday.

The festivities start with the young baseball team at Norfolk Academy at 4:30, joining the boys and girls lacrosse teams, which also have 4:30 games on the fields off Northampton Boulevard.

The girls lacrosse game is a showdown between the undefeated Oaks, ranked number one in Division II in Virginia, and Norfolk Academy, ranked number 8 in Division I. (lower enrollment figures mean the Oaks are competing in Division II instead of last spring’s Division I).

Across town is another marquee matchup, the 7 p.m. game at the ODU Soccer Stadium on 43rd Street featuring the Oaks girls soccer team, number two in Division II, against perennial power Norfolk Academy, ranked number five in Division I.


It’s Blue and White Night at the ODU field so wear your colors and bring your loud outdoor voice. The girls’ team tied defending Division I state champs St. Catherine’s on Friday.
