On April 22nd the boys’ and girls’ track teams competed at Georgia Southern University in the 2AA track meet. Fifteen track members qualified for the State GISA track meet. The boys ended up in 5th place and the girls took 3rd place. Hunter Knox won the 400 meter dash. Hunter was also runner-up for the Boys 2AA Region Over-All Points trophy. Also, congratulations to Jeremiah Dave who placed 2nd in the shot put at the region meet. Amelia Dodson place 3rd in the 300M hurdles. Sara Hammonds placed 4th in the 800M, and the team of Sara Hammonds, Emily Hammonds, Amelia Dodson, and Sydney Davis placed 4th in the 4x400M. Gracie Hunt placed 4th place in the 1600M. The team of Emily Hammonds, Anna Knox, Amelia Dodson, and Tayler Patterson placed 4th in the 4x100M dash.

At the State track meet on April 29, Jeremiah Dave placed first in shot put with a throw of 44-4. “I had been throwing a regulation college shot put,” Dave said. “The one used for high school is two pounds lighter so once I changed; it really made the throws seem a lot easier. It was definitely a highlight of the season for me.” Amelia Dodson placed second for the Piedmont girls' track team in the 300-meter hurdles. “I wasn’t expecting to do so well,” said Dodson, a junior. “I had not been able to practice a lot so I was happy to even get to state. When I was in Albany, I just gave it my best and ended up second .I will continue to work at it and try to improve before next season,” she said. Senior Hunter Knox finished third in the high jump and 400-meter dash and seventh in the long jump. The 4x100-meter relay boys team of Michael Edwards, Ben Davis, Hank Strickland and Knox was fifth overall, while Chase Young was ninth in the 800-meter run.

Piedmont coaches also credited Cassidy Cook and Ben Davis for giving “excellent effort” in very tight competitions. Overall, both the Piedmont boys and girls were 10th among 18 schools competing at the state meet. The Piedmont track teams were coached this spring by Alvin Hawkes and Judy Nelson. Congratulations to all track team members on a great season.

As of today, May 19, the Piedmont Academy baseball team is competing in the third round of the state GISA Tournament. The team plays Flint River in Woodbury on Thursday, May 21. This next round of tournament play follows PAC's victories over Georgia Southwestern in two games on Friday and Saturday May 15 - 16.

Piedmont Academy’s quest for another state baseball title began Friday, May 8 as the Cougars hosted Solid Rock Academy of Fayetteville. The team played and won a doubleheader in Monticello.

Coach Daniel Funt’s team entered the postseason as a No. 1 seed after winning the Region 4-AA championship. Solid Rock was the No. 4 seed from Region 1-AA.

“We are excited to finish up the regular season and try to get sharp for the playoffs,” Funt said. “There are several good teams in AA and it will be a battle each and every round. I’m proud of our players. They just have to remember to take it all one pitch at a time, one inning at a time and one game at a time. The playoffs are a war of attrition.”

Other first round GISA Class AA matchups included Brentwood at Flint River, Georgia Christian at First Presbyterian Christian Academy, Twiggs Academy at Crisp Academy, Brandon Hall at Windsor, Monsignor Donovan at LaGrange Academy and David Emanuel at Southwest Georgia. Robert Tombs Christian, the No. 1 seed from Region 2-AA, received a bye since Region 3-AA did not have a No. 4 seed. Admission cost for the state playoffs will be $7 for adults and $4 for students (grades 1 and up.)

Piedmont, a heavy favorite, enters state with a 14-5-2 overall record. The team finished with a 7-1 region mark. Funt’s team has won eight of its last nine games in regular season play.

Looking back at the season, Piedmont Academy's varsity team and B team both played John Milledge on Tuesday, April 21st. The B team lost with a final score of 7-1 while the varsity team won with a final score of 5-1. On Thursday, April 23rd, our middle school team won 7-2 and lost 6-0 against Brentwood.

The Cougars defeated Gatewood on the road in Eatonton in a non-region title. The Gators are actually a No. 1 seed for the Class AAA playoffs.

Piedmont scored a run in the top of the fifth inning and two more in the top of the sixth to secure the victory. Zach Beggs worked the first four innings allowing three hits while striking out four. The game was scoreless when Beggs finished pitching.

Mike Davis registered the win after throwing the final three frames with an additional four strikeouts. Offensively, Beggs was 1-for-2 and drove in two runs. Mack Brady was 1-for-2 with an RBI wile Brock Carter and Michael Edwards were also 1-for-2. Hunter Burson was 1-for-3 at the plate against Gatewood. “It was a good team win,” Funt said of Monday’s victory. “It was against a tough opponent. Playing them will help us in the playoffs.”

Piedmont closed out the regular season Tuesday, May 5 with a trip to Monsignor Donovan. The Cougars took an easy 14-0 win in Athens. Luke Andrews earned the win going three innings before Brock Carter finished out the final two innings. Beggs was 3-for-4 at the plate with a run and three RBI. Hunter Knox was 2-for-2 with two runs and an RBI

We came up short in a couple of games, but I can’t wait for next year.” The seniors that will be leaving the varsity boys team are Chase Young, Gabriel Courtman, Jeremiah Dave, and Owen Kimball. The seniors leaving from the varsity girls team are Tracie Harris, Abagail Hyde, Parker Kelly, JaDe Padgett, and Dana Wright.

The 2014-2015 school year is coming to an end and changes will soon be made to the handbook, in the areas of: sports, dress code, parking permits, electronics, etc... But, I want to discuss the dress code. I feel that the dress code should be revisited and edited.

Next year, I feel like the dress code should be changed to fit with current trends. Some changes that should be considered are: to let the girls wear rolled or jean capris, to allow pants to be light blue, dark blue, or at least no specific shade of blue, jewels on the pockets of pants should also be allowed. Girls will wear the jeweled pocketed jeans because it is impossible to find jeans without decoration on the back. Some girls spend 70+ dollars on their jeans only to be told, half way through the school year, to go buy new pants. If someone spends that much money on pants, I can almost guarantee that they will wear throughout the year.

Hoodies are also a major conflict throughout the school, so I think that students should be allowed to wear a Piedmont hoodie any day of the week since it is a jacket. Most people wear hoodies every day anyway, so why not make it a rule that we can? I do think the school should be more strict about non-Piedmont hoodies though. As long as the hoodie is Piedmont related, it should be allowed.

I do think the school does a decent job at is keeping our guys cleanly shaven. It is nice to know we have “clean cut” guys. I do feel like the guys should choose whether to have long or short hair because of preferences. A girl doesn’t have restrictions on the length of her hair, so why should a guy? Yes, I do understand the school wants our guys to look their best, but I think as long as the guys have hair that is under control, they should be able to have “long” hair.

Dress code is a major issue in a small school, which is good, because no individual can be made fun of because of hi o he dress. Everyone wears the same thing. Having brand names does not matter, and no one has to go out and spend tons of money on outfits to wear throughout the year. Having a dress code is what we need, but the current code needs to be updated to reflect current trends.

Lend- A- Paw

On Tuesday, April 21 2015 the students and staff of Piedmont Academy had a lesson in what it means to help others. Over 300 students, staff, and volunteers went into Jasper, Butts, and Newton counties to work in a community outreach program called “Lend a Paw Day.” They visited seventeen different sites in surrounding counties and helped with many projects. In Newton County, they visited the Covington Salvation Army, Benton House, Solid Rock Church Food pantry and thrift store, Chimney Park, Covington YMCA, Falcon Woods Farms, Yellow River Park trail, and Jackson Lake. The groups helped with various projects from cleaning grounds, painting, picking up trash, entertaining our counties senior citizens, and the pure enjoyment of helping others. This was the first year the school has orchestrated a school-wide project and Piedmont Academy hopes to make it an annual event. The school has strong feelings that their students greatly benefited from these types of service projects. The event served to bring people together and help each other as well as provide an atmosphere for creating a strong sense of community and school pride. Coordinators of the event were Holly Frank and Robin Anglin.
