Sparkman Senators gain State and National Ranking!

Big image

Congratulations to Sparkman Baseball ranked 14th nationally and #1 in the State Rankings!


Check this out Senator Nation!! Sparkman Baseball gains National ranking!!!

"After winning the Perfect Game High School Showdown this past weekend, Sparkman (Ala.) makes their rankings debut, checking in at No. 14 overall. They really dominated high-level competition all weekend, securing victories over several ranked schools, including Buford (Ga.), Parkview (Ga.) and Gulliver Prep (Fla.). They have started their season hot, and the argument can easily be made that no one in the country has as many wins over high quality opponents that they do."

‪#‎SparkmanPride‬. ‪#‎WeAreSparkman‬


Congratulations to Sparkman Softball ranked #3 in the State!

Congratulations to Sparkman Boys Soccer ranked #8 in the State!
