Manasa Gollapalli was staring defeat in the face. It was the Girls Tennis Regional Tournament, and Gollapalli, a Greenhills sophomore who plays #4 singles for the team, had already lost the first set of her match 6-0. Now she was losing the second set 5-2 — one game from losing the match. It was nearly 90 degrees out. Gollapalli was running on fumes.

Reading an article about baseball coaching, Greenhills head coach Tom Ward recently encountered a phrase that resonated with him: “starting from scratch.” “We didn’t quite have to start from scratch, because we have a senior class that got to experience the best season in our program’s history when they were sophomores,” Ward said. But because those players missed their formative junior season due to COVID, Ward said, “Their in-game opportunities were very limited.”
The softball team, a co-op team between Greenhills and Father Gabriel Richard, is a young team. How young? The team has 12 players total, and none are seniors. It has two juniors and two sophomores. Of the team’s eight freshmen, five have never played softball before.
And we do our very best to draw it out daily. On average, any two people have 99.9% identical DNA. That means what makes you you is what comes from that remaining 0.1%. At Greenhills, we've crafted our entire 6th- through 12th-grade experience (and our approach to teaching) to unleash the full power of that 0.1%. So you can go out into the world — uniquely and confidently you. A one-of-a-kind work of art with the ability to do anything you set your very distinctive brain to.
