The Standard Journal - - EDITORIALS & OPINION - DEAR EDITOR: OPIN­ION

“What A Year”, As a mem­ber of the Rock­mart Com­mu­nity, Grad­u­ate of Rock­mart High School and The Ath­letic Direc­tor of Rock­mart Ath­let­ics, I take great pride in what we have ac­com­plished with our sports pro­grams over the last few years, but 2018-19 has been special and will pro­vide a lot of great mem­o­ries for ev­ery­one in­volved.

First, I Want to say Thank-You to our faith­ful JACKET NA­TION!! When I say “What a Year”, let me start by giv­ing you our loyal fol­low­ers a break­down of what our stu­dent/ath­letes and coaches have ac­com­plished this Great School Year! Rock­mart High School had 8 Re­gion Cham­pi­onships (Foot­ball, Soft­ball, Bas­ket­ball-Girls, Track -Girls and Boys, Base­ball, Ten­nisGirls and Boys), We had 4 teams in the fi­nal four, we had 3 teams (Foot­ball, Ten­nis(Boys), and Base­ball) com­pete at the high­est level for a State Cham­pi­onship with RHS Boys Ten­nis Team tak­ing home the tro­phy.

We also had in­di­vid­ual ath­letes take home State Cham­pi­onships, Grif­fin Pace took home a State Cham­pi­onship in Wrestling and Zo­ryan Hen­dricks was a Two-Time State Cham­pion in Track with wins in the 300 me­ter hur­dles and the triple jump, he also lead Class AA in points earned at the state track meet. We had a young lady (Emma Evans) that com­peted in four sports and won four Re­gion Cham­pi­onships. We also had seven­teen ath­letes com­mit to par­tic­i­pate at the next level in their cho­sen sport.

There are many great mo­ments that oc­curred this year and if I start nam­ing them all I would have a short book, most of you wit­nessed these mo­ments with us. Rock­mart was also a Back to Back win­ner of the Re­gional GADA Direc­tors Cup and fin­ished sec­ond in the State of Ge­or­gia for The GADA Direc­tors Cup. If I sound like a proud mem­ber of Rock­mart High School and Rock­mart Ath­let­ics, there is no doubt. None of these ac­com­plish­ments would be pos­si­ble with­out great stu­dent/ ath­letes, coaches and their sup­port­ive fam­i­lies, sup­port­ive teach­ers and ad­min­is­tra­tors, su­per­in­ten­dent and as­sis­tant su­per­in­ten­dents, board mem­bers, and most of all you our Great Com­mu­nity or JACKET NA­TION as we have been la­beled across the State of Ge­or­gia.

I have been amazed at the amount of sup­port our fan base has pro­vided our ath­letic teams not only at home events but on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions we out­num­bered the home fans of the sta­di­ums and venues we vis­ited.

JACKET NA­TION you are our Ex­tra Man and our ad­van­tage over our op­po­nents. They know once they en­ter our com­mu­nity or we en­ter theirs they are in for a fight from our Rock­mart Jack­ets and the most loyal fan base in Ge­or­gia in my opin­ion. We have had a Great Year at Rock­mart High School and you THE FANS made it even more special with your GREAT SUP­PORT! Thanks again JACKET NA­TION, we will see you soon for the 2019-20 sea­son.

Thanks and Sin­cerely Yours,
