The Athens Academy players, coaches and school community are excited about Saturday’s Class A Private Volleyball Semifinal match vs Holy Innocents’!  The match will be played at Perry High School, Perry GA at 2:00 pm.

Tickets should be purchased using GoFan and here’s a link for your convenience. 
The match will be streamed by GHSA on the NFHS Network.
A few volleyball FYI’s…..
The team is currently 41-2 on the season, with the only losses against 2 of the AAA Semifinal teams, Sandy Creek and Oconee Co.  The team did not lose a set in the Region Tournament and, to date, has not lost a set in the state tournament and has only lost 9 sets the entire season!! 
Go Spartans!

Congratulations, Thomas Meyer!!!

Athens Academy is pleased to announce that junior Thomas Meyer is one of four students from the state of Georgia selected to serve on the inaugural FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics State Officer Board.  Along with his fellow board members, Thomas will be advising the state committee on how to improve robotics/STE(A)M opportunities for school robotics teams in Georgia. 
According to their website, Georgia FIRST’s mission is to “inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.”
State officers will meet twice a month via Microsoft Teams to plan events for robotics students for the spring and into the next school year.  Way to go, Spartan!
