Congratulations to the GCA Tennis Team who completed a successful season while enjoying the opportunity to play on the new tennis courts on campus.
We're so proud of this hardworking team and excited about what the future holds for this program!
The GCA Tennis team just finished an incredible first season on the newly built home tennis courts. The Lady Rams went 8-4 with big wins over Bearden and Maryville while the boys finished 4-8.
Individuals Anna Claire Moss and Hudson Shepherd both advanced to Region playoffs in singles while doubles team Sydney Farmer and Caroline Mabe finished their season at 11-1. Josh Williams and Cole Siems held their own at a 7-5 season. Playing at number 6 was newcomer, Cooper Riggs, who finished his season at 7-3.

Four spring sports teams are in the midst of region competitions.
Softball and boys soccer both clenched wins over the weekend which advanced each team in their region tournaments but also secured them a spot in the first-round of the TSSAA state tournament.

Congratulations to GCA 8th-graders, Sydney Farmer and Caroline Mabe, who have been a powerful force as a tennis doubles pair on the GCA Varsity Tennis team!
