Greetings Fellow Titans –
Attention all sports fans!
The month of April has been an exciting month for Northview sports. Since we’ve returned from a much needed Spring Break, our Spring athletics have been in full swing with most teams battling for a state playoff run. Tennis, Golf, Baseball, Soccer, Lacrosse, and Track and Field have all been working very hard to accomplish their seasons’ goals.
First, our Boys Tennis team is through their first round of the playoffs and will face Alpharetta this weekend for the second round to advance to the quarterfinals and try and defend a fifth State Championship title.
Boys and Girls Golf just wrapped up last week with the Boys finishing 4th in the region a bit shy of making the State playoffs but yet a commendable year. Girls Golf also had a consistent year but fell a bit shy of a state playoff run also. Both teams have had stellar years in the past with both having State Championships under their belts. Come on guys.. Not everyone can win State every year. We have to give some other teams a chance too.
Baseball will be wrapping up their season Friday night unfortunately falling short of a playoff run but needless to say, a solid season with a very talented bunch of players and great coaching staff!
Boys and Girls Lacrosse both had another great season and will be kicking off their playoff debut next week with the Boys hosting the first round next Tuesday evening at 5:30 pm. The girls will play TBD (to be determined) away next Tuesday based on their final regular season game against Chattahoochee Friday evening at the Hooch. Girls Lacrosse is looking for another shot to get to the State Championship and bring home that win. Boys will be sure to follow suit. Good luck guys!
Track and Field is finishing up Regional’s today and tomorrow with hopes of several athletes representing them at the State meet next week.
Boys and Girls Soccer have accomplished another Northview first for both teams this year as they both advance to the second round of the State Tournament for the first time in eight years. Both teams have made the state playoffs once and have been knocked out in the first round. With exciting victories for both teams in the first round: Boys beating Lassiter in penalty kicks Tuesday night and the Girls defeating Pope 3-2 with a 0-2 come from behind victory, the boys and girls hope to continue through to The Big Dance. Both teams will play again next Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, with the boys hosting North Cobb next Tuesday night at 8 pm. and the Girls playing away Wednesday at Etowah.
One more note: It’s that time of year again. Spring Football starts next Monday, May 3rd. Although we have not hired a new coach yet, our interim Head Coach, Gary McCoy, will be leading Spring practice along with Coach Edwards and the rest of the coaching staff. Both of these coaches have done a tremendous job in stepping up and taking over through this difficult transition. Rest assured though, we will have a successful Spring practice and a great year next year. The enthusiasm continues to build within our Football program and we have all the confidence in the world that our coaches and players alike will continue to work hard to make that happen.

Attention to all Junior Parents!
It is time for us as Junior Parents to be involved with the great Project Graduation night!! We need all moms and dads to join us and help make this night a great success for this year’s NHS seniors.
This is a great event on the evening of May 22nd, following Graduation, for the seniors. They will gather in an organized, safe and fun all-night lock-in at Dave and Busters in Discover Mills. The senior parents have planned the whole evening and the junior parents get to chaperone. This is a great way for you to see what your kids will be doing next year after they graduate which will be here in the blink of an eye. Of course coffee and food are provided throughout the night so you can stay well fueled!!
It is a wonderful and exciting event keeping the kids entertained all night. There will be a hypnotist show - which is always a hit - along with a Karaoke contest with a live DJ, pool, bowling, caricature artist, and of course all the games. In addition to all that fun, the graduates will all be leaving with fabulous prizes which are awarded all night long keeping the excitement going!
As you can imagine, there are many areas that need to be covered by 30 junior parents in each shift. There will be 2 shifts for the evening; the first is from 12:00 am-3:00 am and the second is from 3:00 am - 6:00 am. The kids will arrive by 12:00 am and will not be able to exit till 6:00 am. You can also choose to work the whole night if you want to catch all the fun. This will be the third year for my husband and I to chaperone and we have had fun working together and seeing the kids have so much fun!
Please respond if you are willing and able to volunteer for this fun-filled evening. Remember, we will do this for the current senior class and next year the junior parents will be doing it for our kids, so let’s pay it forward now. This is a very organized and safe night and we need many volunteers to make it run smoothly.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Once we get our list of volunteers together, we will work on shift assignments.
Our first meeting will be on May 18th, 7:00 pm in the media center of Northview. We will go over all the details and assignments of the night.
Thank you for your help! I know I can count on you to help us make this a great night!
