Ridge Creek School Accepted Into ACCE Conference

Just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up!  On Thursday, Josh Cannon, Athletic Director/Head Soccer Coach/Assistant Basketball Coach and Blake Nash, Recreation Coordinator/Assistant Head Soccer Coach/Head Varsity Basketball Coach traveled to Atlanta to attend an Athletic Director’s meeting for the ACCE Conference (Atlanta Conference of Christian Educators). This conference as of now consists of sports such as Volleyball, Basketball and Cross Country.  This past year we were provisionally put in the conference, playing sports such as Cross Country and Basketball, and pending good behavior and maintaining a schedule without cancelling or forfeiting games, we would hope to become a full member this upcoming year.  To become a full charter member, we had to pass a majority vote at this meeting.  Unanimously we were voted in the conference and were praised many times for our good behavior throughout the year.  Thanks to everyone, especially the students of this past year for giving future Ridge Creek Students a conference to play in for these sports and possibly a state title to win.

In June, we are hoping to get good news from the AAC, Atlanta Athletic Conference, on our membership status.  This would give us a full fledged conference for every sport to compete in, in hopes of winning a State Championship.
