But there is a lot of excitement in the air this spring, as a few teams have state championship aspirations and look to add a banner to Kirby Gym.

Thank you to everyone — students, faculty, coaches, parents and all other supporters — who made Durham Academy's 2016 Homecoming event such a huge success. It began early Friday afternoon with the second annual All-School Pep Rally, which was attended by all faculty, staff and students and watched by more than 1,000 more online.
