The ACADEMY Athletic Report – 4.23.21

Message from Coach MAC

We closed the book on the 2020-2021 athletic seasons last week as track wrapped up. Coach Spears and Coach Ingram did a great job as our track athletes competed for the first time in 3 years. We had State Championships for the first time in school history, Final Four appearances, and the debut of new teams with HS JV Volleyball and Basketball. Despite the uncertainty of COVID-19, our athletic department, coaches, and teams help give our school more recognition in the OKC metro and in the State. We are excited as we plan the future growth of our athletic teams at The ACADEMY. Go Griffins Go!

Athletic Banquet Planned

The 2020-21 Athletic Banquet is scheduled for Monday, May 10th. This year’s banquet will honor the Rhetoric Athletes from the last 2 years. We will be honoring the High School teams and 4 seniors. 8th graders may be invited pending space and total numbers. High School athletes and one parent/guardian will eat for Free. If you haven’t RSVP’d, please do so by Friday by clicking this link: https://forms.gle/PoGQWErLzYHqLhKY8

Summer Sports Camp Registration Links are Live

Camp Registration is now live for our 2021 Summer Sports Camps! Our Athletic Staff provides 3-5 day camps throughout the month of June to give our Griffin athletes a fun and exciting environment in which to learn and improve new skills, and help prepare them for future athletic participation at The ACADEMY. At the sub-varsity level our coaches join with our current High School athletes to give more individualized attention to younger campers. All camps are open to non-Academy students if you want to invite a friend! Just share the registration link!
