SCA Wins Coveted Athletic Award

We are proud to announce that Sherwood Athletics was named the 2017-18 GICAA Division I winner of the Athletic Achievement Award. This award is the equivalent of a State Championship for our entire athletic program.
During the year points are awarded for every middle school and varsity region championship, state championship and state runner up. Those points are totaled at the end of the athletic school year, and the Athletic Achievement Award is given to the school with the highest total within each division.
State championships in cross country (Joy Kendrick, individual champion), middle school girls’ basketball, and varsity girls’ track along with state runner-up finishes in boys’ and girls’ varsity soccer helped SCA to this award.
As we remain focused on unity throughout our athletic program, this award is a reminder that although we may play different sports during the year, we are on the same team with a much higher purpose.
“There is ONE body and ONE Spirit, just as you were called to ONE hope at your calling: ONE Lord, ONE faith, ONE baptism, ONE God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.”  – Ephesians 4:4-6
Congratulations to all of our athletes and coaches that participated in Sherwood Athletics during the 2017-18 school year.

Girls Soccer Wins SCA Tournament

under the cross 2018

Congratulations to the Varsity Soccer Lady Eagles for winning the 2018 Under The Cross Tournament this weekend! The tournament included 12 girls’ teams from throughout the state. They defeated the HALO team from Athens 2-0 to claim first place. The girls earned the title by defeating Central Georgia then tied Robert Toombs Academy on Friday, then defeated Calvary and HALO on Saturday. They finished the tournament 3-0-1.

They had their greatest test in the semi-finals against a determined Calvary team. After leading 1-0 at half, Calvary tied the match and it went into overtime. After a scoreless overtime, the game went to PKs. Each team scored their first four PKS. The match would be determined on the fifth kicks. Junior Hannah Huckaby was successful on our fifth kick while freshmen keeper Natalie Brock blocked the fifth penalty kick from Calvary! It was an exciting match!

The varsity boys soccer team competed against 14 other boys’ teams from throughout Georgia. They reached the semi-finals and lost to a strong HALO team. They finished the weekend 2-2-0.

Thanks to the Lord for a great weekend with good weather. A special thanks to all of our parent volunteers who made this tournament possible. It is a privilege to host the largest high school soccer tournament in the state. We can’t do it without the help of such great parents!

Stantravious Smith Reaches 1,000 Point Milestone!

stan milestone

Tuesday night, senior Stantravious Smith was honored in front of his home crowd before taking on Covenant Academy for reaching the 1,000 point milestone for his basketball playing career at SCA. He reached it the previous Friday versus John Hancock Academy at the Fullington Christmas Tournament.

What is astounding is that Smith reached this impressive milestone in just 34 games as an Eagle (junior year and one-third of senior year). Currently, he is averaging just over 29 points a game at a clip of 58%. Additionally, he shoots 75% from the free throw line, has accumulated 73 three-pointers, and averages 10 rebounds a game in his career. Smith is on pace to set many SCA records before his playing career is over. Congratulations to senior Stantravious Smith!
