Baseball
Warrior Baseball completed its first full season in 2021 with a final record of 9-14. The Warriors proved competitive in our new area - going 6-2 in area play - after having moved up from 1A to 2A. In addition to our victories in area play, the Warriors also defeated 1A Woodville and a pair of 5A schools, Brewer and Mae Jemison, en route to reaching the playoffs. We’d like to thank our seniors for their leadership this season and for helping us to set a foundation for future success. We also appreciate all the support we received from the Warrior family this season! Go Warriors!

Outdoor Track
The Whitesburg Christian Academy track team had a very productive outdoor season.  They beat many 5A-7A teams that at times were at least three times their size. The team was led by the senior class. On the girls side Brynn Holbrook, Emma Cape, Caroline Dooling, and Allison Prince had great seasons. On the boys side Seth Stewart, Eli Franklin, Jason Ray, and Brennan Paulus were excellent examples for all underclassmen. Many of the athletes were ranked in the top 1-10 going into the state meet. Brynn Holbrook got 2nd in the 100 meter hurdles, 3rd in the long jump, became a state champion in the pole vault, and finished 3rd overall in the triple jump. Emma Cape won runner up in the pole vault and high jump. Caroline Dooling finished in 3rd for the 800 meter and 3rd for the 1600 meter. Seth Stewart got 6th in the 400 meter. Eli Franklin took 2nd overall in the 800 meter with a new school record. Jason Ray set multiple new PR’s in all of his events throughout the season.  Many of the underclassmen had very good seasons as well. Ryan Turner had an exceptional first season setting two new school records and placing 7th in the 100 meter and 4th in the 200 meter. The girl’s 4x800 meter relay team took runner up at state. The team included Emily Driskill, Grace Fortier, Allie Tovar, and Caroline Dooling.

We will be having a small track camp this summer! Details TBA!

Morgan is the daughter of 6th grade teacher, Debbie Alley, and has attended the Academy for 7 years. She has played soccer all 7 years and has also played track, basketball and run cross country as a Warrior. She is a leader and outstanding athlete!

Every year at the 1A-3A State Tennis Tournament, one team is selected to receive a sportsmanship award. This team is nominated from the players/coaches from every team participating as a top eight team in the state. Consideration for the vote is the team whose players demonstrated good character and sportsmanship on the court. The Academy boys tennis team won that award. We are proud of our players, for not only ranking 5th in the entire state, but also shining for Jesus on the court!

Congrats to this team: Ben Crocker, John Evans, Kevin Granger, David Holaway, Grayson Paulus, Carson Spivey, and Ryen Walker. Sue Marshal from the AHSAA office came to the Academy to give this award in person because it is such an honor.
Prayer is an integral part of Warrior Athletics at every age and in every sport.
