Peachtree Academy has come out of the gates strong in regards to its spring sports teams.

Winning a region crown in its first year in bass fishing, BJ Dunning and Cameron Huchel brought home the region crown in the Georgia Independent Christian Athletic Association (GICAA) tournament in Lake Sinclair. 

In varsity baseball, the team is currently 7-3 and 1-0 in region play. After a successful trip to South Carolina to take on Hilton Head Prep and May River High School, Peachtree has come back strong, beating a competitive Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) school in Bethlehem Christian, and looks to be in prime position to excel in region play. 

Peachtree Academy’s softball team is starting to put it together, despite a number of issues, including weather, delayed their season opener. The Lady Panthers are currently 1-3, but are preparing to level out their season against an upcoming slate of region foes. 

In the first season of girls swimming, Alexa Anderson, Nikki Blake, Emily Earwood and Isabel Collins placed well in the schools first meet. Anderson, a freshman, placed 14th in the 50-yard backstroke, 16th in the 50-yard butterfly and garnered the same placement in the 100-yard freestyle. Blake, a sophomore, placed 30th in the same, and 32nd in the 50-yard freestyle and sophomore Isabel Collins placed 44th.  

At the GICAA Invitational track meet, the boys and girls teams performed well with the boys placing first and girls third in the overall points standings, placing them a combined second for the meet. 

Boys and girls tennis is also underway, with the boys and girls posting 1-2 and 2-1 marks respectively during the young season. 

In girls Middle School Soccer, the Peachtree Academy squad is 2-1-1 while a very young and inexperienced boys team currently stands 0-5.
