On the weekend of Nov. 5, The Kinkaid School Falcons traveled to Dallas to compete in the SPC (Southwest Preparatory Conference) fall playoffs. This competition marked the end of the 2021 fall season.
Though all of Kinkaid’s teams competed and placed well, the football and field hockey teams truly outcompeted the rest. The Falcon football team was ranked third until the Falcons beat the St. John’s Mavericks, earning them a spot in the SPC championship game.
The football team then traveled to Dallas where they defeated the undefeated Episcopal School of Dallas football team, earning the 2021 season SPC champion title. Overall, the Falcons had a great season with a final record of 5-2.
Some notable players for the falcons are 4-star University of Georgia commit wide receiver Dylan Bell, Harvard College commit wide receiver Cam Henry, and quarterback David Capobianco.
Kinkaid’s nationally ranked varsity field hockey team also took the SPC 2021 championship title. The girls swept the playoffs tournament in three rounds, beating Casady 3-0, Hockaday 2-0, and St. John’s 3-0 in the championship game. The Falcons field hockey teams finished the season with an outstanding record of 15-1.
Kinkaid’s field hockey program has six college committed athletes: Northeastern University commit Emmy Stubbs, Duke University commit Kyle Massey, Wake Forest University commit Sarah Grace Raynes, University of North Carolina commit Hope Haynes, Columbia University commit Kate Consoli, and University of Virginia commit Mia Abello.
