American Academy (AA) has a reason to celebrate; its first athletic championship! The middle school boys’ soccer team won the South Metro Athletic Conference Soccer Championship. They have both giant smiles and bling to show for it.
The AA soccer team beat out their opponents at Littleton Academy in a close game, 3-1. But it’s not just the first championship for the boys. They also have the distinction of having brought home the school’s first major athletic trophy.
According to Coach Mark Leadbetter, also a middle teacher at AA, “This is a fantastic group of kids who have worked very hard this season to become a winning team, and they really earned this big honor. I’m very proud of them.”
Congratulations to team members Mason Aksamit, Nico Hall, Kaleb Hoskins, Justin Koeiman, Matt Kramer, Spencer Kuhn, Connor Mawhinney, Ian Nouss, Nicholas Pieseski, Joe Sanderson, Andrew Santos, Mitchell Whitten and Jason Messer.
AA is very proud of all of them! And as Coach Leadbetter always says, “Nothing is impossible, that’s truly a motto to live by!”
