“We’re extremely proud of these fourteen graduates and happy to see how their hard work and commitment has paid off,” said Mt. Pisgah athletic director Blake Davenport. “It’s a real blessing to be part of a school that is helping develop and prepare such great student athletes at an incredible rate. I’m fortunate to be able to see how each of our great coaches develop all our student athletes for life after high school, whether playing in college is part of the journey or not.”
The Patriots are coming off a stellar campaign this past season, highlighted by the softball team earning the Georgia Class A state title and the girl’s tennis team finishing runner-up in the playoffs while seeking to win its third-consecutive state title.
The boys’ and girls’ cross country teams each finished fourth in the state meet while the boys’ golf team came in third place during the state finals. Wickline, Claytor, Felice and Geier were named to All-State teams in their respective sports.
