Ridge Creek School Team Achievements

The Ridge Creek Soccer and Cross Country teams are in the midst of tough seasons with stiff and experienced opponents, but the RCS kickers and runners are determined to give their all, during each outing. There have been some remarkable individual and team achievements which are not reflected on the scoreboards. On the running birds’ cross country team, several Eagles have completed their races in the top 10 finishers in large fields of runners. The kicking Eagles have seen some strong effort from several dedicated players. In addition, the team has come together to help any member that may be struggling academically. Both Eagle’s teams are displaying sportsmanship that will see them through this tough formative year and, more importantly, will provide lessons that will last a lifetime.

RCS Students Wrap up the 3rd Week of Classes

Well, we’re wrapping up our 3rd week of fall semester and students have found their academic strides. Some are stumbling and some are sprinting, but all are hard at work learning, growing, and expanding their scholastic skill sets. The RCS Eagles soccer club has had a rocky start, but the big birds seem to have found a workable flight pattern, putting a talon to the rear ends of staff members in a student vs. staff match yesterday that the club won handily, 10-0. It was an afternoon of bonding and school spirit-building. The mornings are cooling and the trees are beginning to show hints of their autumnal splendor. Fall is fast approaching the Ridge Creek campus.

Ridge Creek Eagles beat the Warriors of Cherokee Christian

Today the Ridge Creek Eagles flew down to Woodstock, Georgia to take on the Warriors of Cherokee Christian. In a hard fought first half, the first goal of the game went to Alex assisted by Jack and Scott. Cherokee Christian fought back and scored before the half to tie it at 1-1. The second half was a defensive stand for Ridge Creek as the defense led by Jake, Frankie, and Jack. The Ridge Creek Eagles with about 15 minutes left in the game, got a break and Braden shot the ball which deflected off a defender and went into the goal to have the score read 2-1 us. For the next 15 minutes and entire second half, Jeff in goal saved 12 shots and at times got vertical as well as horizontal to make amazing saves. When the time ran out, the Ridge Creek Eagles won their first soccer game of the season and leaving Jeff as player of the game! It was an exciting end to a long week. Next game is against Horizon Christian Academy on Tuesday in Cumming, GA. Our first home game is Thursday against Gables Academy out of Stone Mountain, GA. Hope to see everyone there next week. Thanks again for everyone that attended this week with our three games. The fan support is greatly appreciated.

RCS Eagles vs Panthers

Yesterday, the Ridge Creek Eagles flew down to Atlanta to tangle with the Atlanta School for the Deaf Panthers. The field conditions were almost unbearable, but the Big Birds managed to hold the ASD cats to a narrow 2-1victory. The first goal of the season was scored by Ben C. who put the ball in the back of the net from 35 yards out. Defensively, the scoreless second half shows that the Eagles are finding a system. These birds are improving daily, finding their game and getting to know their teammates’ abilities. On Friday the 10th, the Eagles bare their talons against the Warriors of Cherokee Christian in Woodstock at 4:30, looking for their first win of the season.

RCS Eagles vs Rams

The Eagles fought valiantly but had their wings clipped a bit on the soccer field yesterday at the horns of the Monsignor Donovan Rams. The Big Birds fell 5 to 0 in a serious feather-ruffling at the home pasture of the Athens, Georgia based bovines. But our Ridge Creek Eagles are far from bald and have smoothed their feathers and sharpened their talons in anticipation of the coming afternoon’s battle with the AASD Panthers. The Eagles and their fans will be swooping into the Panthers’ home range for a serious raptor vs. feline clawfest at 3:30p.m. today.
