Boys Basketball Goes to Playoffs!

over 2 years ago

There’s been a buzz in our school and town this basketball season.  We’ve even been dubbed “The Men of Steele”, thanks to The Dahlonega Nugget.  Coach Steele came to Lumpkin this year with one goal in mind, change.  He wanted not only his players, but the entire community to realize that the Indians can, and will win!  With a foundation in hard work, excellence in attitude and effort, and love from doing things as a family, these boys have already had success. With the Battle of The States Championship over Christmas break, 16-9 record overall and 6-6 in region (thus far), it seems change is exactly what we are getting.  Now we need our 6th man to complete the puzzle of champions. If the students and community will rally around, there’s no telling what we can do!

Lumpkin County Wrestling 

is a double Area Champion this year winning both the Dual Tournament and the Individual Tournament! This is quite a feat on behalf of the young wrestlers and they were able to do so by virtue of the fact that 13 of our 14 wrestlers placed in the top four as individuals!  These young champions will be moving on to Sectionals this weekend and then on to the State Tournament the following weekend.

The Lumpkin County Indians wrestled at the Area Duel tournament this past weekend at Fannin County and walked away Champions after overcoming a very tough Franklin County in the Finals.  Congratulations to the wrestlers, coaches, and parents who worked so hard to make this dream a reality.  The Indians move on to Macon this weekend to compete for the State Championship!

Wrestling Places at STATE!

Lumpkin County Wrestling placed at the State Duals Tournament for the 4th year in a row, a feat unparalleled by the many championship teams to come before them.  They had a very tough bracket this year and did well in it until they had to overcome perennial State Champions Jefferson, and the Indians were bumped to the consolation bracket.

Now it is on to the Traditional Tournament and another chance for our wrestlers to shine!

Impact Testing

over 2 years ago

As part of our on-going effort to ensure the safety and health of all of our athletes, we are instituting a new program this year to address the problem of concussions.  While some sports are more prone than others to this type of injury, it is a very real danger to all who participate in athletics.

The system is very simple.  The coaches will take the athlete to a computer lab prior to the season starting and administer a non-invasive online test to assess the "baseline" of that student.  If a student is diagnosed with a concussion during the course of the season, another non-invasive online test is administered to the athlete.

The information gathered from these tests will be a very valuable tool to the medical personnel treating your child and will help us to provide the best care possible.   Every athlete is different and so is each concussion, we feel that this is a huge step forward in making our care of your student individualized, personal, and pertinent.
