Parent Athletics Committee
Interested in supporting the Parent Athletics Committee’s work? Being involved with the PAC is a great social activity, allowing for interactions with students, coaches and staff, and this group’s efforts are integral to the success of Durham Academy Athletics.
One fun, important opportunity to get involved is to help with concessions. Thank you in advance for your help!
Julian Cochran is in his 23rd season at the helm of the varsity boys soccer program. On Aug. 31, the Cavaliers beat Wake Christian Academy, 5–0, to give Coach Cochran his 200th career victory as head coach of the Cavaliers! A milestone, indeed. Congratulations, Coach, and thank you for all that you do for Durham Academy!
