ATLANTA — The Davis Academy’ girls A volleyball team took home the Division 1 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title recently. Coached by Leanne Edison, the girls’ skills, resilience, and determination earned them a record of 14-0 and their championship win against The Galloway School.
While the team’s winning streak was remarkable, what is equally as noteworthy is how the team exemplified sportsmanship and the school’s values of spirit, respect, community, wisdom and righteousness throughout their season, Edison said.
“As the season progressed, our values were evident in the athletes’ true sense of teamwork,” she said. “I could always count on them to act as cheerleaders for one another, encouraging their teammates through all parts of the season and contributing to the team’s strength.”
Volleyball is one of the 10 sports of The Davis Academy Athletic Program. Throughout the school year, more than 90 percent of Davis Middle Schoolers participate in at least one team sport annually, whether it be volleyball, soccer, cross country, baseball, softball, ultimate frisbee, basketball, track & field, tennis, and/or golf.
