Collin Edge - SOTW
Collin has been a member of what the late Coach Tommy Deaton called the Spartan Air Force for 4 years in the pole vault event. He has been consistent, a hard worker & unheralded. While our boys team had other high finishers in his event and amazing performances on the track at the state meet, it was Collin’s surprise 4th place finish and unexpected points that set the table for the team. He had his best performance in the last meet of his high school career achieving a PR of 12 feet (a 1’6″ improvement from his previous best). He worked hard for 4 years doing his thing amongst a team full of stars and never gave up. He helped plant the flag for our school’s first boys state championship. – Neville Anderson, Head Coach Varsity Track & Field
Maya Davis - SOTW
Maya is amazing!  As a new student to our school this year, she has been a great fit within our program. In fact, she personifies everything about our Spartan track and field team: an iron will, persistence in achieving goals, a hard worker, a ferocious competitor and an excellent student athlete off the track! I have often joked that I am her ‘Dean Smith’. Coach Smith was Michael Jordan’s college coach and the only person to hold him to under 20 points a game. With a full year in our program under her belt and an off season of training ahead, I think her potential is WOW. – Neville Anderson, Head Coach Varsity Track & Field


Congratulations to the T&F teams for their outstanding performances at the State Meet this past weekend. There was plenty of pressure and stress for those of us in attendance and I’m sure the athletes experienced a similar level of stress, but we’re so proud of the way they pushed through to capture these impressive trophies! Unlike some teams and some years, even for Athens Academy, when a few talented athletes scored all of the team points, these two teams achieved their success by having many team members scoring and contributing, which makes it even that much more special!
