Falcon Athletics Update

Girls' Volleyball - The Lady Falcons Volleyball team hosted Queen of Peace - Houston on Monday. Our ladies had a strong home crowd, our amazing Cheer Team, and brand new Under Armour jerseys that show everyone what it means to be a Fatima athlete! Our girls are fighters and continue to compete for their first win. Come out and support this team as they continue to show togetherness and unity!

Boys' Basketball - "Remember Remember the 7th of November..." Our boys are gearing up for the season ahead and continue to prepare for the season in less than 4 weeks. AD/Coach Lopez is excited and so are our boys. Although we have a lot of young cubs, they have the hearts and will of lions, and that is enough to compete. We look forward to a great season!

Girls' Basketball - AD Lopez is working behind the scenes to finalize a staff that will allow us to field a girls' basketball team as well. This is exciting! A quick turnaround will be in the works, so please stay tuned for information about how to sign up and practice times!

Cheer Team - If you're roaming the halls and you've heard yells and cheers, you've probably come across our Cheer Team! Coach Pursley has worked tirelessly to field a JV and Varsity squad and all cheerleaders are excited to cheer at our games. Be sure to support them as well as our sports teams!
