  • Fanatic behaviors disrupt stadium atmosphere

    The way I see it, the importance of an ideal sports fan is rooted in three separate roles: embracing a competitive environment, exhibiting sportsmanship from the stands and behaving themselves in a manner that represents the school or the city for whom the team plays in a positive light. When fans exhibit all three of these characteristics, they do much […]

  • Limited space bats away chances for softball success

    BY GRACIE GRIFFITH AND REILLY BLUM They’re not in the gym. They aren’t in the stadium. They aren’t in Piedmont Park, or even at any other APS facilities. Where is Grady’s elusive softball team? The softball players are forced to practice in the sliver of grass wedged between the trailers and Charles Allen Drive. Even though the team occasionally practices […]

  • A Walker on Sesame Street

    Taylor Walker did some amazing things in her high school years at Grady, and she’s done some amazing things since.

  • District puts safeguards in place in wake of cartoon controversy; experts agree creationism has no place in science class

    As the 2013-14 school year ended, a ninth-grade biology assignment brought the debate of teaching creationism in public schools into the national limelight.

The materials, however, included the definition of creationism and contained a controversial cartoon, which was […]

  • Knights erase 14-point deficit with late TD flurry, win opener for coach, principal

    By Harrison Wilco and Keegan Hasson The Knights varsity football team kicked off its season with a hard-fought victory on Friday, August 27, winning 20-14 against the Washington Bulldogs. The team struggled at the outset, going into halftime down 7-0. During the break, however, Grady’s new head coach Earthwind Moreland instilled new-found morale in the team. “We’ve got to fight pressure […]

  • Carver stifles Grady’s fourth-quarter drive, escapes with 16-12 win

    The varsity football fell to Carver, 16-12, on Sept. 5 at Lakewood Stadium. The Panthers entered the game with a much feared spread offense. And that offense started the game as advertised. Early in the first quarter, Carver jumped out to an early lead of 7-0 on a 70-yard touchdown pass after a quarterback scramble and a missed tackle in […]
