Holy Innocents' scores with Directors Cup win

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- The best athletics year in Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School’s history did not go unnoticed when the Golden Bears won the Georgia Athletic Directors Association (GADA) Directors Cup recently. With public and private schools all in one Class A pool, the Golden Bears were first in the girls’ and boys’ standings in accumulating 1127.5 points, easily out-distancing Gordon Lee (1041) and rival Pace Academy (1038).

Schools obtain points throughout the athletic year by advancing into postseason and their results thereafter. HI had 17 of its 18 varsity sports move on to state, with one—volleyball—earning a single A Georgia title.

“After taking second last year, which had been our best finish in school history, I’m very proud of our coaches and our kids for all their hard work,” Director of Athletics Ruth Donahoo said. “It was a fantastic year and this honor is a testament to all the effort everyone in our athletic program put in.”
