I've always thought that it was funny that the Athens Academy sports team nickname is the Spartans (Athens was often at war with Sparta, no? though I guess they did band together to fend off the Persians). At any rate, the football Spartans are playing in a A semifinal this morning against Wilcox County at the Georgia Dome. Unfortunately, they are currently down 6-0 in the first quarter, but they did just recover a fumble in the red zone. Go Spartans!
Update: 2nd Quarter, Athens Academy takes a 7-6 lead with a touchdown pass after the fumble recovery. By the way, for anyone at home right now, the game is being broadcast on GPB.
Halftime Update: Bad news Tim; the Spartans have fallen behind 20-7 at halftime. There's hope, though; they were behind before coming back and winning last week as well.
Final: Wilcox County 32, Athens Academy 14.
Oh well. Valiant effort and great season nonetheless, Spartans.
