WCA Hosts GICAA State Playoff Games

ReadWestminsterChristianAcademy_AthleticLogo_Icon_2Colory for the playoffs?  Our varsity soccer and baseball teams have worked hard this season and they are ready to play!  This week, WCA is hosting GICAA baseball and soccer state playoff games.   Here is what you need to know:

  • Thursday:  Varsity Girls Soccer vs. Cherokee Christian @ 4pm
  • Friday: 
    • Varsity Baseball Double Header vs. Holy Ground Baptist @ 2 pm

For Friday’s game, the grill will be open and we will be offering hamburgers and hot dogs in the concession stand.

Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for students.  This is a GICAA playoff event so Westminster season passes are not valid and students do not get in free.  We look forward to seeing you at the fields!  Go Lions!!
