Kicking Off the New Year


The period of relaxation that carries our ACP students into the new year is finally at a close, and our athletes have already hit the ground running. Monday, on the last day of break, our ACP Boys Basketball team took on ALA Gilbert in a demonstration of extreme improvement and fierce tenacity. Boys Varsity clinched a victory by two points, while JV narrowly lost a hard-fought game. Despite the deadlocked scoreboard, both teams demonstrated improvement across the court, and asserted the claim that ACP basketball is not a force to be reckoned with.

Tuesday, as our students returned to class, the ACP Girls Basketball team returned to take revenge on ALA Gilbert, as Boys Varsity Soccer clinched a victory in overtime against Valley Christian.

The middle of the week saw wrestling continuing the athletic offense against ALA Gilbert.
