Exciting New Developments for Athletics on our Upper Campus

The new Ortega gym is ready to host volleyball games this season – come help us fill it up with Patriots fans!

Girls Indoor Volleyball

While she’s not new to most of us, teacher and coach Taylor Slover brings years of professional volleyball experience to our volleyball program. Last year, Coach Slover led our boys beach volleyball team and this year will transition into girls indoor volleyball.

We’ll be hosting Fillmore our first game at our new Ortega Gym at 5pm on Wednesday. Come and help break in our new court with a full crowd! 

While this is an early non-league game, the team is poised to retake the Condor League championship this year.


Girls Tennis

We welcome our new Girls Tennis Coach, LeAnne Patterson, to the Patriots athletics team! Coach Patterson was the unanimous choice for this new season and is a great addition to the program. Cheer the girls on for their first match this week at the SB Municipal Tennis Courts vs. St. Bonaventure, Thursday at 3:30 pm!

Boys Beach Volleyball

Boys Beach Volleyball will kick off its regular season practices this Tuesday at West Beach with Coach/Athletic Director Dan Terry.  Coach Terry has over 20 years of volleyball coaching experience and is excited to help our student athletes thrive on the sand.  Practice runs from 3:15 to 5:15 pm. Transportation will be provided from the Canon Perdido campus if needed. Regular practice days will be Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.  

Coed Cross Country

With a new group of young runners moving up from Middle School Cross Country, our returning senior will find himself in a leadership role for building this  year. We are still in discussions with a great potential coach, so schedules have not yet been solidified. If your student is interested in participating in cross country, please send Coach Terry an email (dterry@providencesb.org) letting him know so he can keep you up to date on the developing schedule. The cross country team is open to boys and girls.



Girls Volleyball

After great success last year, Coaches Allie Williams and Todd McChesney will be returning to lead our middle school girls volleyball. The girls volleyball team is open to girls in 6th – 8th grade at Providence.

Tryouts start Tuesday, August 29, after school on the Canon Perdido campus. All girls will make the team: tryouts are for placement.

Coed Cross Country

We are currently hiring for a middle school cross country coach. Spread the word and direct all interested parties to Coach Terry. Athletes who would like to participate in cross country, email Coach Terry to be added to the list for updates.
