The Sequoits Take a Shot at the Gateway Classic

Antioch played hard in St. Louis but was only able to secure one win.

It was an action packed weekend for the Antioch Sequoits varsity field hockey team, as they traveled to St. Louis on Thursday afternoon for the 20th annual Gateway Classic.

In their first game on Friday morning against Ursuline Academy, the game ended in a scoreless tie. Both teams fought hard, with the Sequoits on the attack most of the game, but with Ursuline’s tough defense and not many shots on goal, Antioch was unable to score.

After ending their first game in a tie, the Sequoits were hungry for a win. Playing Parkway South on Friday night, Antioch beat the Patriots 4-0, with goals from junior forward Callie Tubbs, sophomore forward Mikayla Holway, and two from junior back Carrie Miller.

“Carrie stuck out the most because she moved from defense to forward and scored two goals,” said junior Ashley Hradisky. “She is a strong player that can play anywhere if she puts her mind to it.” 

After a very eventful first day of games, the Sequoits face their only loss of the tournament. Losing 1-0 against Presentational.

“It was a rough game because everyone was exhausted and couldn’t wait to go home,” said Hradisky.

The Sequoits ended the tournament going 1-1-1.
