On Friday, our softball girls dropped a double header to Pierce County, but will still play for 3rd or 4th place in the region and will start the state playoffs on October 11th. 

JV football dropped a game to McIntosh Academy, but played well. Varsity football was off and the Cross Country team competed in Ware County. The competition cheerleaders improved their score approximately 16 points from their first to second competition.
