Walker School Athletics fields over 50 teams in 16 sports, with students typically beginning in the 6th grade. Nearly 70% of our Middle and Upper School students play at least one sport each year, and over 30% will play more than one sport (we support multisport participation over specialization). With 132 region and state championships to our name, Walker is committed to fielding strong teams in all sports, but above all, our aim is for our students to compete with great enthusiasm and to demonstrate exemplary sportsmanship.
On Friday night, Walker's 200 Medley Relay team set a new school record! Etta Rockman (back), Divya Gordon (breast), Lili Walker (fly), and Madison O'Neill (free) competed at the Cobb County Prelims and swam in a time of 2:00.31, breaking the previous Walker record by more than a second. For their effort, the girls finished 9th and qualified for the Cobb County Championships. Additionally, Walker, O'Neill and Rockman each qualified for Finals in two individual events. Congratulations, Wolverines, on a great meet!
The Wolverine Club Golf Tournament is back! We look forward to seeing everyone on May 2 at Pinetree Country Club for the 11:00 a.m. shotgun.

Congratulations to Dylan Jefferson and Falon Arnold, both three-sport athletes at the Walker School! The two eighth-grade Wolverines attended the Hawks game last week and were surprised when their names were called by the Atlanta Hawks / Dream as this year's Co-Captains for the Nike Game Growers program. Dylan and Falon will work with the NBA / WNBA organizations throughout the upcoming year to develop and enact a plan for encouraging girls in our community to stay involved in sports.
