Red Devil Athletic Updates

  • Boys Basketball: Druid Hills fought valiantly but lost to Perry Saturday night in the first round of the state playoffs, 56-72. Congratulations to the team for their accomplishments this season.


  • Boys Soccer: Druid Hills gave coach Thomas Bodnar a lovely Valentines Day gift by beating Paideia 2-0. Team Captain Luke Narker fired the opening goal from close range, followed just minutes later by sophomore Menkaseh Tokpah's deft goal into the side netting. Goalkeeper Josh Lloyd and the defense maintained a clean sheet yet again. Later the same week, the Red Devils overcame N. Oconee 1-0 in a tense contest. Solid defensive work by Matt Overstreet, Max Simpson, Will Johnson, and GK Josh Lloyd kept the opposition at bay. In the 77th minute, senior Luke Narker was fouled in the penalty box, earned a penalty kick, and scored the game's only goal to give the Red Devils an unbeaten 4-0 streak in the region.
