CONGRATS, EAGLE WRESTLERS! - This past weekend, the ACS Wrestling Team competed in the Single A, Area 4 Dual Tournament. The Eagles went into the Tournament seeded 4th, but overcame several tough opponents to finish as the Area Runner-Up, earning their first trip to the State Dual Championships since 2014.
ACS started the day with a 39-35 victory over Athens Academy. Senior Brian Rodriguez pinned his opponent in the final match to secure the victory. The Eagles then defeated George Walton 39-33 when Ali Nabulsi won the last match of that round. Rodriguez and Senior Gabe Hill both went undefeated on the day.
Congratulations to first year Coach Ryan Smith and all of the Eagle Wrestlers, and best wishes at State!
WELCOME, DR. BRINK - ACS will add another Ph.D. to our staff this month as we welcome Dr. Daniel Brink from Pretoria, South Africa. Dr. Brink will be teaching in our middle school Math department.
Dr. Brink obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics Education from the University of Georgia in 2007. He then returned to South Africa where he served as a teacher and administrator in two private schools, and also served as the executive director of an organization that helped Afrikaans break the cycle of poverty in South Africa.
In addition to being a gifted individual, Dr. Brink is a man of strong character and faith. We are blessed to have him here at ACS. Welcome aboard!
Bible Quizzing is one of the unique extracurricular activities offered at ACS. Bible Quiz students memorize large portions of Scripture and then compete in tournaments where they are asked questions about the passages they have committed to memory.
This year's teams are memorizing Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon. These students are hiding God's Word in their hearts and meditating on it often - one of the many benefits of a Christian school education. Time for a change? Check out ACS.
