  • Varsity Wrestling: State Individuals Runner-Up

  • Signing Day: February 2024

    Congratulations to these eight seniors for signing to continue their athletic careers as collegiate student-athletes: Ryan Callaham, golf at Oglethorpe University; O’Neill Connolly, basketball at University of Montevallo; Ben Jacobs, baseball at Maryville College; Lane Kruse, volleyball at Carnegie Mellon University; Josh Lange, wrestling at Davidson College; Aidan Pullaro, baseball at Andrew College; Chip Scarbrough, football at Shorter University; Savannah Simmons, track & field at Wake Forest University.

    This brings the total number of senior signees to fifteen. Go Patriots!

    Ryan Callaham
    Oglethorpe University, golf
     
    “While his year-over-year scoring average improvements are impressive, perhaps the most impressive quality Ryan has is his work ethic. Ryan’s work ethic is downright legendary. it would not surprise me one bit if he hasn’t missed a single day of golf practice in the last 365 days. It is not an exaggeration to say that the time Ryan has spent at the golf course rivals the amount of time he spent sleeping over the past year. All that to say, Oglethorpe is getting an extremely hard-working and talented athlete who’s as good a person as he is a player. Congratulations Ryan.” - Coach Saari

    O’Neill Connolly
    University of Montevallo, basketball

    “A lot of times in high school athletics we see these great quotes online, in a book or during a clinic that we use to try and motivate our teams. A lot of times, our players are not mature enough or disciplined enough to execute the things these quotes would require. O’Neill Connolly is a living example of so many of those cliche sports quotes we see. He did not letter at Holy Innocents as a junior (not sure how!!) but he came to Mount Pisgah, and if it wasn’t for his injury, he would have been Region Player of the Year along with earning his athletic scholarship to Montevallo. One year can totally change someone’s life. I appreciate O’Neill’s constant work ethic and resiliency because he has no idea that his story will inspire players that aren’t even born yet. Congrats, O!” - Coach Slone

    Ben Jacobs
    Maryville College, baseball

    “Ben is one of the hardest working and most coachable players I have ever coached. He has put in the extra work and dedicated himself to getting to the next level. His dedication and sacrifices paid off, and he will be a great college baseball player and student athlete. Mount Pisgah will be represented well.” - Coach Woods

    Lane Kruse
    Carnegie Mellon University, volleyball

    “The growth in Lane over the last four years makes me so excited to see her continue that growth over the next four at Carnegie Mellon. Her role in our program changed a little bit each year, and she took each new role and made it her own. She continually worked on her physical and mental game, which led to 1A Player of the Year honors and a State Championship. It has really been a pleasure to be a part of Lane’s volleyball career, and I can’t wait to see what else she’ll accomplish!”- Coach Morgan

    Josh Lange
    Davidson College, wrestling

    “Outside of Josh Lange helping our team win three state championships, he is one of only a handful of Mount Pisgah wrestlers to be a 4-time state placer and hold 150+ varsity wins. Josh has been like no other wrestler we've had before. His ability to sacrifice personal success for team success sets him apart. In addition, he is one of the hardest workers on the wrestling mat, and in the classroom! Our coaching staff is super proud of him and can't wait to see what the future holds for him.” - Coach Merry

    Aidan Pullaro
    Andrew College, baseball
     
    “Aidan has grown tremendously as a baseball player and young man. His dedication to the game and his selfless contributions to the team are big reasons why he has the opportunity to play college baseball. He has dreamed of playing at the next level even before stepping foot on campus. His hard work will continue to pay off at the next level, and he is going to have a great college baseball experience.” - Coach Woods

    Chip Scarbrough
    Shorter University, football

    “Chip’s growth as a person and player over the last four years is a testament to his work ethic and dedication. He is a very good football player, but an even better person. I’m excited to watch his growth continue over the next four years at Shorter.” - Coach Livezey

    Savannah Simmons
    Wake Forest University, track & field

    "Savannah's MPCS Track & Field career has been long and successful. She holds the School Record in Long Jump, as well as an Individual State Title in the same event. Through the past 4 years, she has accrued more top State placements than there is time to list...Savannah has been a top contributor to the Girls track program every year, providing double-digit points at the State meet every year, enabling multiple team podium finishes. She is talented and is a leader, but she is also a learner and a worker. She pursues excellence in every area that she possibly can and literally never settles." - Coach Payne
  • Varsity Wrestling: State Duals Runner-Up

    Mount Pisgah Christian School's Varsity Wrestling team is the runner-up in the 2024 Dual State Championship. This is the sixth year in a row that Mount Pisgah Wrestling advanced to the State Dual Semi-Finals.

    After capturing their fifth straight Area Dual Championship, the Mount Pisgah Varsity Wrestling advanced on to the State Dual Championship hosted in Heard County this past weekend.

    Based on last year’s performance, the team was seeded as the number one overall seed. However, they faced a tough road ahead to reach the finals for the second straight year. 

    In round one, Mount Pisgah cruised past Charlton County 65-15. They moved on to the quarterfinals, facing a tough Oglethorpe and won 41-33. 

    In the semi-finals match, the team faced a rematch of last year's Dual State Championship Finals against Trion in a highly competitive match up. The match came down to senior Josh Lange, who needed to win for the tie or pin for the win. Ultimately he pinned a two-time returning state placer to secure the 42-39 victory for the team.

    The team advanced to the finals to face one of Georgia's top overall teams, Social Circle. Despite junior Conner Doherty defeating a two-time state champ and senior Marley Washington winning with ease, the team came up short of their goal of winning back-to-back Dual State Championships. 

    Next up, the team is set to compete in Area Individuals, where they hope to crown numerous individual state championships. 

    The Area Individual Meet will be hosted at the Drum on February 3.
