On September 15th, our Bears Football team headed to D’Hanis to face the Cowboys. Having left with a record of 3-0, our glorious Bears returned having won 24-13 and improving their record to 4-0. Continuing to gain momentum, the Savio Eagles did not stand a chance as we entered into homecoming week. With the crowd roaring and the spirit at an all time high, our BCS Bears shut down Savio, 49-14. Getting back on the road with a record of 5-0, we faced the mighty Shiner St.Paul Cardinals at Comanche Stadium. Although both teams battled till the end, Shiner walked away with a 28-27 win after the extra field goal attempt was blocked. Heading into week seven, with a record of 5-1, the BCS Bears faced the evenly matched Boerne Geneva, who challenged us with yet another tough match-up. Our BCS Football team created a strong lead in the first half, ending with a 28-7 lead over Geneva. It was not long after the second half started that Geneva pushed back and tied the score 43-43 by the end of regulation. It was in overtime that Geneva stopped us on downs and scored a touchdown to win the game 43-49. The BCS Bears currently hold a record of 5-2. During the week of 10/9 – 10/13, the Bears had a bye week before heading into district games against Bay Area Christian (10/20), Cypress Christian (10/27), and lastly, Legacy Christian (11/3).

The Brentwood Lady Bears Varsity Volleyball team did not come to mess around this 2023 season. It looks like the preseason scrimmages, games, and tournaments were exactly what they needed in order to be prepared for district play. Having won all eight games since last playing St, Michael’s, the Lady Bears have increased their overall record to 31-10-1. Those last eight games were especially important as they faced all district opponents and earned the #1 seed heading into the district tournament. The district games will be played on Thursday, October 12th (round I) against TSD, Tuesday, October 17th (round II) against Veritas, potentially on Thursday, October 19th (round III), and the following Tuesday on October 24th (round IV). The opponents for rounds III and IV are not yet known at this time. Stay tuned on social media for any/all updates!
Two more weeks, but three more games for our middle school Volleyball teams. Middle school Volleyball has done a lot of traveling, but these last three games will be at home.

The end of season tournament for all teams will begin the week of October 28th.
