This Week in APSD Athletics - August 22-27
Chris Babb

Welcome to week two of the 2016-17 school year and first week that the athletic schedule really kicks in. Each week, we'll post a graphic like the one you'll see at the end of this story accompanied by a few bullet points regarding the week. We hope to see you supporting the Badgers and Lady Badgers during the 2016-17 school year.

VOLLEYBALL BEGINS ITS REGULAR season Monday as the varsity welcomes Camden-Fairview and the junior high teams will travel to Camden to face the Lady Cardinals. The AHS volleyball team started the season with a win over El Dorado in their AAA benefit scrimmage at home on Thursday.

THE ARKADELPHIA FOOTBALL TEAMS will be in action this week in their respective AAA benefit games. The varsity Badgers will head to Vilonia Tuesday for a 6:00 p.m. start. The junior high Badgers will host Cabot Thursday at AllCare Field at Badger Stadium. Admission for both games is $4.00, and unfortunately no APSD passes can be accepted to the junior high game on Thursday.

THURSDAY ALSO MARKS THE BEGINNING FOR AHS TENNIS as the season starts at HSU with a match against Malvern. The tennis schedule features several home matches to begin the 2016 season.

GOLF CONTINUES ITS SEASON after mother nature forced the cancellation of last week's matches. The golf team looks to continue its early-season success as the Badgers won their first two tournaments of the season in early August.
