In a start-up school, it’s all hands on deck for team competition, whether it’s Rube Goldberg, Odyssey of the Mind, or sports. Students who had never before competed in soccer or volleyball have stepped beyond their comfort zone to allow Academy High to field teams in these two sports. Some of the greatest joys of the season have been watching our rookie athletes enjoy the competitions and realize that they can truly contribute; they also know that their teammates will, in turn, support them in pursuing their passions off the field.
Academy High has relished many milestones this year in soccer- first uniforms, first goal… eventually there will be a first win. Until then, they are enjoying the camaraderie that comes with working together towards a goal, and representing their school well. Go Owls!
