Here is an Phoenix Golf update from Coach Farley:
Yesterday(Wed, May 1st) the AAAA Boys Golf Sectionals were cancelled by GHSA since the ten teams that qualified for sectionals would be fighting it out for exactly ten team spots. Therefore the Phoenix will now be one of 16 finalist competing for the AAA Boys Golf State Title! The AAA State Championships will be held on May 20th at Reunion Country Club in Hoschton, GA. The following are the 16 teams that will be competing at Reunion Country Club:
Blessed Trinity, Buford, Callaway, Franklin County, Jackson County, North Hall, North Oconee, Oconee County, Pierce County, Pike County, Ringgold, Sonoraville, St. Pius, Swainsboro, White County, Woodward Academy
OUR GOLF TEAM IS THE 5TH PHOENIX TEAM IN THE SPRING SEASON TO MAKE IT TO THE STATE PLAYOFFS! Baseball, Soccer, Boys Tennis & Girls Tennis are the other four.
Friday will be a huge day in the Phoenix Nation as we'll have both our Boys Soccer team and our Phoenix Baseball team taking part in the AAAState Playoffs for the first time!
The Phoenix Soccer team, the #4 seed from Region 5-AAA, will travel to Bogart, Georgia to face the North Oconee Titans, the #1 seed from Region 8-AAA. The match will start at 6pm. Good luck to Coach Palazzolo and the boys!!
The Phoenix Baseball team will also do some traveling on Friday. The Phoenix, the #3 seed from Region 5-AAA, will go to Franklin County to take on the Lions, the #2 seed from Region 8-AAA. The Phoenix and Lions will play a doubleheader with Game #1 starting at 4:30pm and Game #2 beginning 30 mins after the end of Game #1.
