A Message from the Athletic Director

Through all the construction caution tape and fencing last Friday night, we were able to pull off a football game "Under the Oaks." I want to thank everyone who lent a helping hand to make sure we could finally have a home game for our fans, families, coaches, and especially our players and cheerleaders. It took a lot of volunteers to make sure we could have the proper personnel for the gates, concessions, music, score clock, and the voice of the Knights, Tom Willis.  When I see alumni parents returning to campus to volunteer, it proves the point: "once a Knight always a Knight." Thank you to all.

Coming up the next few days, we will have our busiest week of home athletics so far this season. We have something each night this week on our campus, so be sure to check out our schedules and make evening plans to join us as we cheer on our Knights!

Go Knights!

School-Wide Homecoming T-Shirt

This year, the Upper School Student Council reached out to a couple of Upper School students to see if they would be interested in designing this year's commemorative homecoming t-shirt. Alston Euart and Mildred Reeves took the task and ran with it! Dr. Nevins and Mr. Riggs gave them a blank sheet of paper and said, "We want to see what you can do! Be creative!"  The shirt design below is what Alston and Mildred worked on and created. We could not be more proud of their work, and we are happy to share with everyone what the 2022 Homecoming Shirt looks like! Thank you, Alston and Mildred, for your help and hard work! 

The theme for the Homecoming Game is "Blackout," and we hope that everyone (students, parents, and staff) purchases a shirt and wears it out to the game. Shirts will go on sale next week! 

- Dr. Nevins and Mr. Riggs

Homecoming t-shirts are $20 each and will be charged to student accounts when the order form is completed and submitted.

Varsity Football Kickoff Celebration


Varsity Cross Country

The 2022 Cross Country season opened Saturday morning September 3, 2022, with the Frederica boys and girls squads traveling across the Sidney Lanier Bridge to run at the Jekyll Island Invitational.


A technology snafu caused the loss of race data including times and team scores, but the FA runners showed up and ran hard.


Daniel McHugh led the way on the boys' end, followed by Elijah Howerton and Noah Falken. Max Byrd and Trey Walbridge ran well, and Jack Alston in a gritty XC debut survived the course. 


Sophomore Kaitlyn Sunderhaus finished first for the team on the girls' side, followed closely by Maggie Dorminy and new member Sophie Price


Rainy weather soaked the Great Dunes golf facility, and short sections were still under an inch of water, giving the course a traditional, messy feel and slowing times. 


Even without official times, all returning team members ran faster than they had a year ago at the same meet.


The most promising trend from the day was the runners' first-mile discipline, with nearly all runners hitting their planned first-mile splits. The team continues to work on negative splits, so that the final mile of later races will stand as their fastest. 


With basic conditioning of July and August behind the team, members will increase mileage in the month of September, building to 30 and 40-mile weeks as the girls seek to defend their state title and the boys look to better last year's state runner-up trophy.

Go Knights!

Varsity Volleyball

Tuesday vs. Bradwell

The Lady Knights were very efficient on Tuesday against Bradwell Institute with a three-set sweep (26-24, 25-17, 25-21). After winning a close first set, the Lady Knights kept it rolling with a quick win in the second set. The third set saw both teams exchange runs with the match tied at 10-10. The Knights finally created breathing room and led the third set 22-19. From there, the Knights ended strong to take the third set. The team was led by Ryann Hankey with fourteen kills, Ashley Prokop with eight kills, Lily Najawicz with six kills, and Katie Eckert with nineteen assists. 

Thursday vs. St. Andrews

The Lady Knights started off strong winning the first set 25-21 against regional opponent St. Andrews. Following the first set, the Lady Knights fell short in the remaining three sets, 12-25, 7-25, 11-25. The team was led by Ali Brown-Winans with six kills and Grayson Caine with nine digs. With a hard loss against St. Andrews, the team looks to build on their 7-3 record with this week's home games.

Go Knights!

Middle School Cross Country

Middle School Cross Country had its first race Saturday at the Jekyll Island Invitational. All runners ran hard on a soggy course, setting the tone for a great season. Fifth Grader Henry Dorminy paced the team with a two-mile time of 14:37. The next meet will be on September 15th.

Go Knights!

Middle School Volleyball

Last Wednesday the Middle School Volleyball team had their first home game against St. Francis. The girls were a little nervous for their first game and came up short. After more practice, they are ready to try again. The girls will take on Jane Macon this Wednesday at home.
