Reflection

We currently find ourselves in a small window of inactivity, or a lull if you will, between the end of the Fall sports season and the beginning of the Winter season. I have had a few days to reflect upon the past few months and the one word I keep coming back to is "Wow!". Our kids were able to achieve some amazing team and individual accomplishments. Here are just a few: 3 SEC White championships (GGolf, BTennis & Football)
1 Regional Championship (GCross Country)
4 state qualifying teams (B & G Cross Country, GSwim & BTennis)
4 All State athletes (Bryce, Dani, Austin and Gabby)
1 state champion (congrats Bryce!)
And several other students who have been or will soon be named to all league and county teams for their athletic AND academic accomplishments.
When you take the time to list some of these accomplishments, you quickly realize how special our kids, coaches and parents are in our community. For in order to earn these accolades, there is a time commitment and balancing act of family life, athletic life and academic life that is sometimes difficult to understand. It is a complex dance for our students, but the support our families and instructional staff are able to offer is awe inspiring. We are a few weeks away from building upon our Fall successes and I for one, am ready to go! Are you?

With Bulldog pride,
Michael Kapolka
