The Mens' Varsity Lacrosse Team declared Raider Stadium a "NO FLY ZONE" last night beating the Etowah Eagles 11-6. The Eagles lived up to their school colors, leaving AHS feeling BLUE, after Junior Captain, Holden Morrison, dropped 4 goals and 2 assists on their heads. Holden is now tied with Chuck Howard for most points on the team, totaling 37 on the year. Connor Corkill was also a menace on the offensive side of the field, scoring 4 goals and 1 assist of his own. Leading the way on the defensive end of the field was Michael Corkill and Jake Gil, who combined for 7 takeaways and 8 of the Raiders 31 ground balls. The Raiders next game is at Creekview Monday night. Drive up and support the team!
This has been a busy week for our Alpharetta Band students. On Tuesday, all three of our band classes performed in the annual Georgia Music Educator Association's Performance Evaluation. All three bands received all superior ratings from all of the judges. This is the highest possible rating results that bands can receive. On Wednesday, our Wind Ensemble (our most advanced band class) performed at Georgia State University for the Music For All Southeastern Concert Band Festival. This was quite an honor since bands were selected from Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee. The judges for this event were band directors from UCLA, Penn State, University of Wisconsin, and University of Miami. Our band had an amazing performance which featured the following soloists: Enzo Espinosa, Carter Schwalbe, Jack Hedin, Leo Guan, Ashley Kim, Anna Crane, Malla Niverthi, Yul Kim, Andrew Wang, Meri Mazurik, Matthew Lou, and Thomas Xiao. The band concluded their performance with a phenomenal clarinet solo work with band accompaniment. The featured soloist was Alpharetta's own, Michael Serafino who wowed the audience as he performed the very challenging work all from memory! Mr. Jenkins and Mr. Kaufman are very proud of the band students and all the hard work that they have put in to continue the stellar accomplishments that our school is known for and keeping Alpharetta High School a nationally recognized school of excellence.
