2019-2020 Athletic Update

We are excited to begin another GRACE EAGLES Athletic season for the 2019-2020 school year! We continue to have over 70% of our students in middle and high school participating on GRACE Athletic teams and we look forward to another year of striving for excellence in all endeavors. For specific information on the fall sports season, please read 2019 Fall Sport Information. 

This year, we are working to provide more practice space at our current GRACE Athletic Field location for various of our outdoor athletic teams. With the help of annual fund dollars as well as Eagles Club dollars, we have been able to partner with Evans Contracting to provide over an acre of new practice field space with irrigation and fresh sod! We are hopeful to make this space available to our teams during the early portion of the fall season. There will more than likely be construction going on during the month of August for this project.  This will allow more space for our outdoor athletic teams to practice as well as more teams being able to finish practices at an earlier time!

Our Eagles Club Memberships are a huge way to promote and enhance the athletic programs here at GRACE. An Eagles Club Membership allows you to enjoy FREE ADMISSION for the whole year at our JV and Varsity Athletic events with some exclusions for NCISAA playoffs and special events. Please consider purchasing an Eagles Club Membership today for a special $125.00 price through Aug. 26th!

As always, please use our athletics website GRACEAthletics.net for team schedules, dismissal times, results, as well as other important information such as physical forms and athletic paperwork. Please be sure to SIGN UP as a FAN to receive alerts such as game or practice cancellations, score updates, or other game changes via text or email.

Our GRACE Coaching staff is ready for the new athletic season! We have added some new faces and we are still praying for the filling of some open positions.  Here are a few coaches who are new or have switched to new roles:

  • Steve MacDermut – Head Varsity Girls Tennis
  • Ashley Brantley – Head Varsity Fall Cheerleading (previous Asst. Var. Cheer)
  • Chad Poprocki – Head MS Boys Soccer (previous MS Girls Soccer HC)

There are a few more coaching positions we are still praying to fill: MS Girls Tennis (fall), MS Cross Country (fall), Varsity Cheer (winter), MS Girls Soccer (spring). If you know of any candidates, please email their contact information or ask them to contact Athletic Director Devin Terris at dterris@gracechristian.net.

We pray we continue to display servant leadership and provide an atmosphere where our student athletes, coaches, parents, and volunteers reflect humility, sportsmanship, and integrity through the avenue of interscholastic competition for the glory of God!

Please make sure to come out and support your GRACE Eagles and show off some of your #EaglePride at our home events! GO EAGLES!
