ECMS News from the Principal
El Campo Middle School- Home of Champions!
We earned two championships and a runner-up trophy in football. Both the 8th grade A-Team (5-1) and B-Team (5-1) won district titles, and the 7th grade A-Team (5-1) finished as runners-up in district but didn't get to play the undefeated team from West Columbia due to Hurricane Harvey. The 7th grade B-Team finished 3-3 in 3rd place in district.
The volleyball girls were equally successful. Both 7th grade teams won district in volleyball with the A-Team finishing the season with a record of 11-1 overall and 6-0 in district. The A-Team also won the Needville Invitational Tournament in October. The B-team finished 9-3 overall and 5-1 in district play. The 8th grade A-Team finished the season in 2nd place with a record of 8-4 overall and 4-2 in district play. The 8th grade B-Team finished 5-4 and 3-3 and continued to improve all season.
Congratulations to all of our fall sport athletes and coaches on successful seasons!
