FA Drive for Life Project
Dear FA Families,

To survive requires the ability to persevere in difficult circumstances. Every man, woman, and child has experienced this as we have endured the global pandemic beginning in 2020 that continues to date.

However, there are other struggles and illnesses that have been fought long before and since the arrival of this global pandemic. Cancer is a battle that many have experienced in their lifetime. Most of us have a personal connection to cancer. My own father developed leukemia in 2015. Thankfully, after successful treatment, he has been cancer-free for five years.

My name is Roy Boyd. I am a junior at Frederica Academy and a member of its golf team. In honor of those who have fought, and continue to fight, against cancer, as well as their loved ones, my golf teammates and I hope to raise funds for cancer research and outreach. In addition, we seek your help to support the First Tee of the Golden Isles, an organization that teaches children leadership through the game of golf.

This spring, we are conducting a fundraiser, “Drive for Life," to benefit three non-profit organizations important to all of us. Each non-profit will receive one-third of all proceeds raised:

  1. The Cancer Care Center at Southeast Georgia Health System (Brunswick Campus)
  2. The Mayo Clinic Cancer Research Division in Jacksonville
  3. The First Tee of the Golden Isles

We selected these recipients because cancer has affected all of our lives and because of our collective desire for more young people in Glynn Glynn to have the opportunity to play a game that unites all of us.

We are seeking sponsors for various levels of participation:

  • Maximum Pre-Paid Performance Gift ($1,500)
  • Performance Pledge (Amount TBD - $1,500 Maximum)
  • $1,000
  • $500
  • $250
  • $100
  • $75
  • $50
  • $25
  • Other Donor Designated Amount

Please click on the "Online Gift via FA Website" button below to make a one-time online gift. Your gift may qualify as a tax deductible charitable donation.

The Performance Gift (the most fun option) is where the amount of your donation will depend on the posted scores (pars, birdies, eagles, etc.) of our top four scoring players after each 18-hole season match. Your total donation amount will be calculated in late April at the end of our golf season. Donations for the Performance Gift will occur once the season has ended unless you opt to pre-pay the maximum amount before or during the season. If the value earned by our team exceeds $1,500, you will not be asked to pay more than $1,500.

Please click on the "Online Performance Pledge" button to make a pledge commitment, which will not need to be fulfilled until the completion of our golf season in May.

Our golf season is comprised of about twenty matches or invitational tournaments, one regional regional tournament, and one state championship tournament. If you are interested in receiving updates on how the team is doing throughout the season, you can sign up for tournament updates or monthly updates. Tournament updates will be received after each tournament has concluded, and monthly updates will be received at the end of each month during the season. Click here to email me if you are interested in receiving these updates.

The top four Frederica player scores from each match will be used to calculate the pledge as follows: $1 per par; $5 per birdie; $10 per eagle; $20 per albatross (two strokes on a par 5); hole-in-one $100; win our regional championship $50; win our state championship $100.  

The Frederica Academy golf team is seeking its 13th straight state championship title this year. It has already been a very competitive and exciting season!

Please click on the buttons provided below to access our 2021 golf tournament schedule and a sample of the spreadsheet that we will send you after each match. You may register and choose your preferred way to donate.

Our home matches will be played on the Retreat Course kindly provided by Sea Island. We hope you will come out and follow us when we play at home.

Thank you for taking the time to consider being a part of this important initiative. Please email me should you have questions.

PPE Night (Grades 4-11) - APRIL 28
All rising 5th through 12th grade students need to have a Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (PPE) for each new school year. This is required due to the rigorous activity expected by our physical education, athletic, and field trip programs.
As a school service, the FA Athletic Department and Southeast Georgia Health System conduct on-campus PPE's for current students in grades 4 through 11 during the month of April each year. Once completed, each student will be covered to participate in physical education classes and all athletics for the entire upcoming school year. We are very fortunate to have community volunteers provide this service for a $10 donation to the FA Booster Club, which will be charged to your school account.

PPE Night for the 2021-2022 school year will be held in the gym on April 28, 2021, from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Parents, if you would like your student to have the exam done at school, please click HERE to print the packet of forms. Parents should complete pages 1-6 and return the entire packet to school. Completed forms can be submitted to Adam Norman, Nurse Pope, or Coach Zimmermann no later than April 19.

We will conduct pre-screening sessions during PE (Grades 4-8) and lunch (Grades 9-11) for students who have submitted their forms between April 12-23. Turning in forms early allows us to do pre-screening (Height and weight, vision screenings, etc.), which helps make the PPE Night run much more smoothly.

If you prefer to have the exam done by your family physician, please click HERE for a form packet. Complete pages 1-6 before taking the entire packet to your doctor and returning it to school when the exam is completed.

Frederica Academy Knights Golf Team Wins Palmetto High School Championships

The Frederica Academy Varsity Golf team won the Palmetto High School Golf Championships at Pawley's Island this past weekend on the True Blue and Caladonia courses with a three-day score of 308-293-297 for a total of 898, winning by 12 shots over Woodruff High School from South Carolina. North Raleigh Christian Academy finished third, 15 shots back. Individually, Knights players had high finishes with 8th grader, Jackson Byrd, finishing in third place overall at 7-over. 8th grader, Jack Roberts, finished T7 at 9-over and senior, Thomas Henderson, was in 9th place at 11-over. Individual Knights scoring was as follows:

Jackson Byrd (71-77-73)
Jack Roberts (78-69-77)
Thomas Henderson (79-75-71)
Roy Boyd (80-72-81)
Aarnav Nath (81-82-76)

Coach's Comments:
It was very rough weather for this tournament with cold and high winds on the first two days and a frost delay on the last, so that kept scoring high. On top of that, no one on our team had played either course before as we were unable to get in practice rounds, so that put us at a disadvantage. We were 1 shot down after the first day at the True Blue course but hung in there well. Jackson Byrd and Jack Roberts continued to show their talent with Jackson under par on day one and Jack under par on day two to lead the team. Jackson had a hole in one on the par 3 9th the second day, which as far as I know is the first hole in one in FA golf history. At one point on the second day at the Caledonia course, we were 7-under par as a team, with Jack 3-under individually, but we let it go with some bad holes on the backside. We still managed to take a 4 shot lead into the last day, which was back at True Blue. Coach Roberts and I figured we would play better after playing the course once, and we did. Although we got off to a slow start, we finished strong with a great day from Thomas Henderson who got better and better throughout the round. He was one or two under par almost all day with a stress-free 71 and some great ball striking. Jackson had a great backside 34 to hold together a good round and get the third-place individual trophy. Every player had great moments in this tournament. Roy Boyd had a good second day with a lot of birdies, and Aarnav Nath had a great last round working, only 1-over through 15 holes the last day before making some bogeys coming home.

Overall, it was a great effort and a big win for the school. We had previous 2nd and 3rd place finishes in this tournament, so to win it was big for us. I want to give big thanks to all the parental help we had this weekend with food, drinks, driving, and just the support of our team. A big thanks also goes to Jonathan Byrd for talking strategy with our players before their rounds. These kids don't realize how lucky they are to be able to learn from his tour experience.

Go Knights!

The FA Lady Knights Soccer team won our match 1-0 versus Brunswick High School on March 30. This was a great result for us, given who our opponent was, and I was very pleased with the performance overall. We have two big region matches at home this week, with St. Andrews coming to us on Tuesday and Trinity coming to us on Friday. Please come out and support.

Go Knights!

Varsity Track
Our Varsity Track runners had a very good run on Wednesday at the meet hosted by Glynn Academy. Andrew Kaminer doubled up in the 3200 and 1600. He won both races on a very strong windy day. His time in the 3200 was a new school record in 10:58. And, his 1600 time was 5:04.

TJ Jackson ran his first race of the season. He ran the 800 in a very good time of 2:13, fighting that same strong wind. TJ stayed in the top pack of runners for the whole race and finished strong. I do not doubt that with more weeks of training he will do well at Region.

Go Knights!

Middle School Golf
The Frederica Middle School Golf team picked where they left off, beating St. James and Blessed Sacrament convincingly on Tuesday, March 30. By the end of the 9 hole match, it was Frederica 156, Blessed Sacrament 185, and St. James 223. Frederica’s own Jayden Roberts was Low Medalist with an even-par round score of 36. His round consisted of 3 birdies, 1 bogey, and a double on a difficult par 5 9th hole. Jayden’s been a solid number 1 player all year so far, and it was nice for him to put that kind of round together. His even-keel personality lends itself well for a team that counts on him for a low round each week. This was the second straight match where a Frederica Academy player won the low medalist.

Robert Stephens tallied his lowest score of the season with a smooth 38. Robert was in complete control of his round. At 3-over par with three holes to play, Robert birdied one hole coming in to shoot his impressive score. Robert playing like this will only make us stronger heading into the League Championship. He’s a great kid, and I’m happy for him.

Another player that played a strong round is Jacob Katz. Jacob’s 40 was a 7 shot improvement from the last match, and I hope that trend continues. Jacob played steady all day and kept grinding out his round. Jacob never gave up and birdied a hole late in the day to keep his round respectable.

Thomas Sams posted a 6 over, 42 to round out the fourth counting score of the day. Things are close to clicking for Thomas. He hits the ball very well off the tee, and it’s only a matter of time before the complete game is put together. He’s such a great kid, and I want it to happen so bad for him.

Cullen Kazimir posted a second straight 52 for the Knights but hit the ball better today. Cullen works hard and is having fun while learning the game.

I am very proud of the team. The 2-0 Knights pick up again April 13 when we head to Bacon Park to play against Glynn Middle and Savannah Christian.

Go Knights!

Middle School Track
The Frederica Academy Middle School Track runners ended their season on Wednesday at Brunswick High School.

Ellie Tronolone ran the 400 in 1:14 and placed 4th. And, she did the 200 in 32 seconds.

Laila Gilbert did the 100 in 16 seconds, placing 5th, and the 200 in 37 seconds.

Isabella Speight did her 1600 in 7:48 and ran the 100 in 15 seconds, placing 5th.

Eddie Myers ran his 1600 in 7:53 and also doubled in the 200 with a time of 40 seconds.

I'm very proud of these 5 gutsy runners who ran hard all season.

Go Knights!
