The Falcons welcome our new Varsity Soccer Head Coach: Wahed Awad

Vacaville Christian Athletics is excited to introduce our newest team member, Coach Awad. Coach Awad comes to us from Texas! Read his story…

My name is Wahed T. Awad and I will be the new Head Varsity Soccer Coach this coming Winter Season 2021-2022. A little about myself, I was born and raised in Texas. Yes, I’m a Dallas Cowboys fan along with FC Dallas Soccer, Texas Rangers, and Barcelona FC; you can say I love sports! My wife and I definitely try to involve ourselves in intramural sports to keep active. We are a military family that was relocated to California in mid August 2020 and are trying to adjust to the California environment and what it has to offer. We definitely love the mountains, as it reminds us of home. 

My family and I love to explore new areas whether it’s by air, land, or sea – weather permitting, since we have a 2 year old son who we hope one day will be the next Messi and one new member of the family on the way. We have 3 dogs who are all rescues. We believe every dog should have a home with a roof over their head. Little fun fact, I enjoy the outdoors working on my lawn or doing some projects around the house. Grilling outside is another favorite of mine when it’s time to just enjoy the good ole fresh air. Before moving to California I coached for several years at a private school where I coached multiple sports from pre-K through senior high level. 

Giving back to my community in Texas was very important t me. I volunteered to coach soccer and serve as a board member for the club for several years, helping to increase the love of the game of Soccer. Over the years, I’ve also helped coach a UPSL semi-pro soccer team in the DFW area with the goal of helping our players get the attention of college recruiters by having them attend some of our home games to see our players who want to continue playing the game at the collegiate level. 

I can’t wait to meet all my new athletes and get down to business. 

See you all  very soon!

2021 swim team

VCS Falcon Swimmers bring home the Championship

This 2021 Swim season has been anything but normal. As the COVID-19 ban on high school sports was lifted in late January, the spring sports season took off running… swimming in this case… to prepare for whatever competition opportunities we could pull together. Counties across the Sac-Joaquin Section were all faced with the same daunting challenges: who can we play and who can even roundup enough student-athletes to field a team. Swim teams were no exception to these challenges. The Falcons built a schedule with six scrimmages and meets in total.

With COVID things were a little different than previous years, but we made due as a team. I am happy we were able to have a season and that each swimmer made the adjustments to the protocols.

Grace Erkeneff, Head Coach

The Sierra Delta League Championship meet was made up of VCS, Rio Vista and Golden Sierra. The experience was amazingly!  Even through the many challenges, the one thing that has made this spring so much better was seeing our student-athletes compete in each event with a renewed sense of joy and appreciation. As head coach Grace Erkeneff described, many of these student-athletes are new to the sport of swimming.

They all have improved tremendously and this is very gratifying as a coach to see each athlete excel in the sport. Some have made the jump to continue swimming outside of the season. This is something I love seeing, that they not only tried something new, but have gained a passion for the sport as well.
