Griffin High Soccer Recognized for Academic Excellence for Fourth Consecutive Year

 For the fourth year in a row, the Griffin High School Lady Bears soccer team received the United Soccer Coaches High School Team Academic Award.  The Lady Bears were one of only 7 women’s soccer teams recognized out of the 390 GHSA-affiliated teams in Georgia.  “We are very proud of our girls soccer team for again receiving this prestigious academic award,” said Dr. Darrell Evans, principal of Griffin High School, “The girls soccer team is an exemplary representation of what it means to be student-athletes.  Successes like these helped our graduation rate improve to 87%, higher than the state average.  Good job, Lady Bears!”

 

The Lady Bears were recognized with this prestigious award for having an outstanding grade point average during the 2016 spring season.  The 19 members of the varsity team had a combined 3.39 GPA.  Griffin High Athletic Director Dr. Kennedy Holt praised the team’s commitment to success in the classroom, saying the school is “extremely proud of our girls’ academic performance.  In keeping with our school’s theme, ‘Striving Towards Excellence,’  these young ladies have demonstrated that academic achievement at Griffin High School is our student-athletes’ number one goal.”

 

The Lady Bears have also found success on the field recently, finishing in the top half of their region four out of the past five years.  During that five-year stretch, 10 Lady Bears have received college scholarship offers and seven Lady Bears have played collegiately.  “Our girls are leaders.  They are successful on the field and in the classroom,” said Head Coach Bill Stikes, “You’ll find them in leadership positions in school clubs, other sports, and in churches and other community organizations.  Being a Lady Bear means committing to success on the field and in life.”

 

The Lady Bears open their 2018 season with a scrimmage February 1st at Memorial Stadium.

Register now for the PSAT

The PSAT will be administered  on October 25, 2017 at Griffin High School. The PSAT is a standardized test of verbal and mathematical abilities. It has two verbal sections totaling 58 sections and tow math sections with 50 questions. Testing time plus related activities is 3 hours. The PSAT, or Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test, is a preview of the SAT that is typically taken in the junior year of high school.  All first time Griffin High School 10th grade students will be administered this test at no cost. Any 11th or 9th grader who desires to take this test, will be assessed a $16 fee which covers the cost of the test, shipping and handling.

Additionally, 11th grade students should be aware that the PSAT is the qualifying test for the nationwide competition directed by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Being a National Merit Finalist or Semifinalist, or receiving a Letter of Commendation, is worth a great deal when a student applies to college. This test will give our students and staff an indication of their College and Career Readiness and garner points to the school’s CCRPI Indicator.
