Williams Academy Hosts Invitational Tournament


Williams Academy was proud to host the Williams Academy Invitational Tournament this past week. Inviting the boys’ and girls’ teams from three other school, it was three days full of basketball!

The Lady Falcons came out strong and went all the way to the championship game. They played hard but were down by 3 when the buzzer sounded, finishing 2nd overall in the tournament.

The boys’ team lost their first game but continued strong in the tournament, finishing 3rd overall.



Three of our students, TJ, Kat and Faith, made the All-Tournament team as voted on by all the teams’ coaches. Faith was named MVP of the girls’ tournament. And as always, the cheerleaders kept the crowd pumped up and cheering on our teams!


Congratulations to Williams Academy Athletic Director Leanne Bledsoe on a great tournament! And to coaches Laura Gunderson and Lesley McKee for the girls, and Todd Yarborough, Andrew Freeman, Stephen Fowler, and Logan Thrasher for the boys…we appreciate your efforts and commitment to these students.

Don’t miss our next home game after the Thanksgiving break – December 8, 4:00 pm in Dickson Gymnasium.

Go Falcons!
