Posted: 10/2/2017

Last week held senior nights, a College Recruitment Night, 22 athletic events, and the end of regular-season games for the volleyball and softball teams.

A special congratulations is due to the varsity boys cross-country team, who was tied for first place in GHSA state rankings following their last meet. Team scores have been led by Devin Wade, who ran a 5k time of 16:57 at the last meet and was named by MileSplit Georgia as the GHSA Runner of the Week for the week of September 17. The Pack will continue their season on October 7 at the Asics Invitational in Douglasville!

Middle School teams have also had great seasons this fall. Assistant Athletic Director for Middle School Sports Crissy Watkins shared an update with our Middle School families on Friday; click here for season highlights, upcoming events, and information on the start of the Middle School winter athletic season.

This week, we’re looking forward to Lower School night at Friday’s varsity football game against Fellowship Christian! We'll be recognizing our Lower School students, cheering alongside Lower School cheerleaders, and enjoying Cloud 9 Kettle Corn. Plan to join us on Friday for this awesome event!
