2016-17 Season Recap


The JV boys basketball team was led by coaches Don Burnette and Peter Kum-nji. The team finished the year with a 10-11 record and was led by co-captains sophomore Tyler Watkins and freshman Mike Zuccaro. The boys won eight of their last 11 games with key victories over Walsingham Academy and Trinity Episcopal, and the team made tremendous progress throughout the year. The team enjoyed playing together, and as a result of their hard work and cooperation, they experienced great improvement throughout the season.

Middle School

The three Middle School boys basketball teams this winter all learned and improved throughout the season.

The Middle School gold basketball team (grade 6) was led by head coach Charles Oliver and assistant coach Jim Brennan. The team started off their season with an exciting overtime 35-33 win over St. Bridget’s, followed by a tough loss to St. Benedict’s. The team came back with another overtime win over St. Edward’s and was rewarded with a bye in the first round of the playoffs. The boys finished their season with a 5-4 record. The team was led by MVP sixth-grade student Tommy Magnano.

The Middle School white basketball team (grade 6) was led by coach Jim Brennan. The boys improved throughout the season and ended with a 6-5 record. The boys’ favorite games included wins over St. Edward’s, Our Lady of Lourdes, and St. Bridget’s. The team was led by sixth-grade students Chase Wingfield (MVP), Isaac Fass (Most Improved), and Jack Jordan (Spartan Award recipient). The team enjoyed two playoff victories over Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Bridgets, and the boys developed skills and learned to play as a team while having fun.

The Middle School blue basketball team (grades 7 and 8) was led by coaches Patrick Tucker and Irby White. The team enjoyed a successful season both on and off the court. Faced with a difficult schedule composed of numerous St. Christopher’s and Collegiate teams, almost every game was decided by the last few points scored. The team’s biggest victory was over a strong St. Christopher’s team and the boys won 40-22. The boys had a great season and have bright futures ahead.

2015-16 Season Recap

Varsity Boys

The boys varsity basketball team, coached by Jamiel Allen ’02, entered the season with six new faces to the program and only two returning starters from last year’s team. Senior Chaise Johnson (20.7) and junior Marvin Cannon (17.0) led the Spartans in scoring. Chaise was the team’s Most Outstanding Player, and senior Kam Smith was named MVP. The boys finished the regular season with a 21-5 record, a first place finish in the Trinity Christian School holiday tournament, and key wins against Hampton Roads Academy, Highland School, Hargrave Military Academy, and Trinity Episcopal School. The boys earned a bid to the state tournament for the second time in three years, but lost a hard-fought game against Middleburg Academy. The team will graduate five seniors this year, including Coaches Award winner Johnny Beigel.

Steward Voices

Steward helped me develop the skills I needed to succeed in college and the courage and confidence to set competitive career goals for myself. But, these skills weren’t lessons I learned just in Steward’s classrooms; they came from the athletic fields, in the hallways, and during Honor Council meetings, too.
- Grace Henderson ’10

Steward Voices

Steward is an atmosphere that fosters confidence—something we have seen in all three of our kids. Whether it is playing a new sport, running for a seat on the Honor Council, or singing a solo on Talent Night, they have been encouraged to try, to experience, and to grow.
