The Veritas Volleyball Teams had a busy week. The Varsity Team defeated Bethel Christian School 3-0 to start the week. The Warriors then played three conference matches. Veritas beat Haywood Christian Academy 3-1, Lake Lure Classical Academy 3-0, and Long Shoals Wesleyan 3-0. On Saturday, our girls played in a tournament in Greenville, SC. Our girls won matches against the Greenville Hurricanes, Augusta Eagles, Legacy Early College High School, and Bob Jones without dropping a set. They lost to Cabarrus in the semi-finals, and ended up finishing 3rd out of 14 teams! The JV Team lost to HCA 2-1, beat LLCA 2-0, and beat LSW 2-1. The Logic School Team beat HCA 2-0, and lost to LSW 0-2. 

Our Boys' Soccer Teams had an undefeated week. The Varsity squad beat LLCA 10-1, and then beat Christian Family Academy 4-0. The Logic School Team played CFA twice, winning both games 2-0. 

Basketball season is just around the corner. Sign-ups are open to all Rhetoric and Logic School students. If you have a child that is wanting to play, please have them stop by the front office to sign up.
