This Week in APS Athletics: August 13-17


Fall Sports have officially begun!

This week, varsity football, volleyball, softball and middle school football will kick off the 2018-2019 season!

Most notably, for the first time in the history of the 26-year-old high school football extravaganza, an APS school will participate in the Corky Kell Classic – one of the nation’s premier season-opening high school football events that features the state’s top teams. The Mays Raiders will represent APS when they take on Norcross (Gwinnett County) in the finale of the nine-game Classic at Mercedes Benz Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 18, at 8:45 p.m. Since 2013, Mays has compiled a record of 52-13 with a trip to the Class AAAAA state finals and two region championships. Tickets are $20 in advance at Mays (3450 Benjamin E. Mays Drive, SW) and Lakewood Stadium (70 Claire Drive, SE), $25 at the gate. Commemorative T-shirts are available at the school for $10.

Tickets for all APS athletics can be purchased at the sporting venue or at an APS school site. Please contact the APS Athletic Department for more details: 404-802-5575.
