The Academy Athletic Report – 9.3.21

Message from Coach MAC

It has been an interesting week as we continue to grow and build our programs.  We’ve had wins and we’ve had losses.  We’ve had to cancel tournaments and meets.  But we’ve also marveled at our growing student body and the support they’re giving at games.  Who would have thought 3 years ago that we’d have a large, rowdy group of students in all white and face paint cheering on our athletic teams!  It’s so fun and a great atmosphere.  If you haven’t been to a game yet, you need to watch the calendar and try to make it out to several games.  Go Griffins Go!
