The ACADEMY Athletic Report – 10.9.20

Message from Coach MAC

This past weekend and week I have received numerous emails of encouragement regarding our school’s leadership and our decision to launch our Grammar 3X3 Basketball League. I was definitely nervous about the new program announcement and was overwhelmed by the overall support. We had over one hundred 3rd-6th grade students register! This turnout on the heels of over 150 runners at Grammar XC shows how much our families crave community and want to do life together. It is an exciting example of how our community is staying Griffin Strong during this challenging time!

Weekly Sports Recap

Last weekend our Cross Country teams showed out at the CCS meet in Norman. Two huge wins as both our girls and boys JH teams each placed 2nd securing the school’s first ever team awards in XC! The D&R teams combined for over 20 individual medals including every female on our Rhetoric team. Junior Esperanza Osuna finished 8th overall in the HS Girls Race. Abbie Schuermann finished 10th in the JH girls race and Noah Brown finished 5th and George Leydorf finished 6th in the JH Boys Race. The Rhetoric Boys all turned in Personal Bests in the 5K. All the teams will now be training the next 2 weeks with their eyes towards the HCAA State Meet on Oct 30th at John Brown University

The Volleyball teams played their last regular season game of the year on Thursday night as they again took on Liberty Academy in Shawnee. The White team swept Liberty to bring their final regular season record to 14-1. The High School teams again showed fight but were unable to come out victorious. The last scheduled games for tonight vs OKC Knights have been cancelled. The Dialectic Girls will play at State in OKC on Saturday, October 24th. The High School Girls play at State in Tulsa on Saturday, October 31st.

D&R Basketball Players must have Physicals to begin season

IF you have not made an appointment with your doctor to do a new physical, you must do that ASAP. Students must turn in their physical, health history, 2 waivers, and the player and parent expectations. Please turn in to the athletic office or your coach ASAP.

Parents of D&R basketball players should mark their calendars for Monday, October 12th at 6pm at Midtown Gym. Coaches will meet with parents to discuss the season, practice schedules, transportation, and other logistics for the 20-21 season. Please make every opportunity to be there – players are welcome.
