Knights News · Update on Summer Activities and Fall Sports


Under normal circumstances we would be talking about spring evaluations, summer workouts, and preparations for Fall sports at this time, but obviously we are far from normal circumstances. As of today (Wednesday May 6), the GHSA is still in discussions regarding plans for summer activities and Fall sports but has not reached any decisions yet, so all athletic activities of any kind continue to be suspended.

Until we receive guidance from GHSA and APS, we have to prepare where we can and be ready to be flexible as needed. Grady Athletics will continue to provide updates when available but direct communication with a sport’s head coach is the best way to make sure no new information is missed. All new (including rising 9th graders) and returning Grady students who are interested in trying out for a Fall sport should contact that sport’s coach at the email address below and indicate their interest in being included on future communications.

  • Cheerleading – Lexy Smolko (lexysmolko@gmail.com)
  • Cross Country – Jeff Cramer (jxcramer@atlanta.k12.ga.us)
  • Football – Kevin Clark (kbclark@atlanta.k12.ga.us)
  • Softball – Daniel Stockdale (Daniel.Stockdale@atlanta.k12.ga.us)
  • Volleyball – Sandi Stein (ssteino63@gmail.com)
