Our most recent Athletic Accomplishment is our Middle school girls Basketball team winning the NAML league State Championships. The girls, under the excellent leadership of Coach Brian Johns, lost only two games for the season and they won our first every NAML league Girls Basketball championship. The other teams raved about our girls’ great spirit, great attitude, and the girls tenacity and determination. Sacha Washington scored 25 points in the Championship game as we beat the team that beat us for the State last year.
Our Varsity girls made it to the GICAA quarterfinals and Brooke Hayhurst was voted to the All-Star team and was recognized for being All-State in our Division.
We also had three all-Region team members; Brooke Hayhurst, Anna Habgegger and Sacha Washington. Coaches Jim Bailey and Morgan Leatherwood did a fantastic job of coaching the team. These are just a few of the highlights of our most recent season.

Junior league basketball provides an opportunity for the 4th–7th grade students to get involved in athletic activities. The format for this program provides an opportunity for both boys and girls (on separate teams) to compete. Games are scheduled for Saturday mornings, and the season runs for six weeks. Sixth grade boys and girls are allowed to play on the middle school soccer team.
