Cross Country Runs Away with State Title

in Sports by

Winning a state championship in any sport is extremely difficult; the chances of winning one is highly improbable, but the odds of being back- to- back as state champions in any sport is nearly impossible. The amount of hard work, effort and dedication and needed is immense. If a team can complete such a feat, they have undoubtedly proven that they are the best in their sport. This is exactly what the Wesleyan boys’ cross country team proved two weeks ago in Carrollton, GA when they won their second straight state championship. They proved that without a doubt, that they are the best runners that the state of Georgia’s 1-A classification has to offer. They are no longer just a good team, they are a great team. They are champions, and they will go down in history for the phenomenal work they have done.

The road to victory for the team began on Nov. 1 during the high school’s senior night pep-rally. At the beginning of the pep rally, the varsity cross country team was welcomed to the middle of the gym floor and was given a standing ovation for a phenomenal season so far. As the Wesleyan fight song blared and thunderous crowd continuously cheered, the team proceeded to run to the buses to head off to the state meet. Once on the bus, the team began their hour-long drive to Carrollton.

Changing Lives Through Young Life

in Features by

Young Life is an organization that focuses on leading students from middle school, high school and college to Jesus Christ. Founded in 1941, Young Life’s website states their mission as, “Introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith.”

Young Life Area Director Allen Dixon oversees all Young Life and Wydlife (the middle school version) chapters in the Greater Johns Creek Community. Dixon said, “Young Life Club is a party with a purpose. Our hope at Young Life Club is that we would put abundant life on full display. We call it controlled chaos. We like for it to be a little rowdy, very silly and extremely fun. We want it to be welcoming for anyone no matter what you believe about God, and we really hope everyone leaves with a better picture of who Jesus is, and why He is relevant to us in today’s world.” Keep Reading

Water Polo:

The water polo team has just ended their best season since 2015, with an impressive eight wins, eight losses and one tie out of their seventeen games. Coach Kevin Kadzis said success was achieved this season from commitment by the team to playing their unique style of water polo. Kadzis said their best game took place in September, when the team beat Collins Hill High School even though they were down one player, and it was “awesome to see our team work together and overcome the odds to beat a good team when we were at a disadvantage.” The season started right after school began in August and ended on Sept. 29, and Kadzis said seniors Connor Beaty, Will Miller, Jack Godfrey and Isaiah Erb were the team’s leaders. Kadzis said, “We couldn’t have had a non-losing season without these guys,” showing the enthusiasm and diligence of this season’s water polo team. Keep Reading
