As Grand River Academy students enter May, they’re enjoying being in the midst of spring sports. Tennis and baseball athletes have been managing practices with papers with Term 5 ending this past Friday. Headmaster Tim Viands shares that “It has definitely been busy these past few months and it’s wonderful seeing the student athletes’ hard work paying off on the court and on the diamond. A great season always makes a positive impact for the entire campus.”
Tennis has seen steady improvement with Graham ‘17 and Humberto ‘18 winning their doubles match and Jack H ‘17 winning a set. GRA Athletic Director Frank Shreve states that “Coaches Polak and Riddell have really done an excellent job with this very young team new to the sport of tennis. The future of our program looks very bright!”
Baseball is looking to continue their 5 game winning streak this coming Tuesday against Andrews Osborne Academy. The Eagles have shown that hard work and dedication truly pays off and the excitement continues to grow on campus with each win. Undefeated so far in the regular season, they are looking to continue the streak through the regular season and into the playoffs. Director Shreve is proud to see “Coaches Ballentine and Crowell have continued the tradition of a strong work ethic coupled with great fundamentals to bring our young men together and find success on many levels."
Lets wish all Eagle athletes a great week!
