On Friday night, the Durham Academy boys soccer team had a highly anticipated matchup vs. down-the-road rival Jordan High School. Our student body was motivated to support our team, and our school community showed up with lots of enthusiasm and a “blackout” clothing theme
With seven varsity and junior varsity competitions on the schedule for Tuesday, Sept. 24, it’s the perfect day to come out and cheer on the Cavs! The Parents Athletic Council is hosting the first-ever Fall Frenzy (similar to the Athletics Spring Fling held each spring), and we hope to see lots of Durham Academy families from all divisions out on the sidelines.
This week, we wrap up fall previews with our cross-country teams and also take a look at how our teams did over the last week. A big highlight was the strong fan presence in attendance at Thursday night’s boys soccer rival game vs. Ravenscroft. We loved seeing our students, teachers, administrators and community at Alumni Field sporting Durham Academy spirit wear!
This week’s issue of Cavs Corner features season previews for the field hockey and girls golf teams, a look back at this week’s action on DA fields and courts and an athletics leadership team announcement.

The 2018–2019 athletics season has come to a close, and with it another successful run for Cavalier student-athletes. Our boys and girls track and field teams closed out the school year with seventh-place finishes in the state meet and three individual state championship performances.
It is the final weekend of the 2018–2019 athletics season, and we’ll be rooting for our boys and girls track teams as they compete in the state meet Friday and Saturday at Cannon School. Our girls lacrosse team was the only one of four teams in action late last week to win their quarterfinal game and advance to the state semis. Unfortunately, the girls fell Tuesday in Charlotte to top-seeded Charlotte Latin.
It’s tournament time! Seven of our nine spring varsity teams are competing this week in postseason play. Congratulations to the boys golf team, which captured the Triangle Independent Schools Athletic Conference championship on Monday. The Cavs were led by junior Ethan Lukes, who took home medalist honors, is conference player of the year and currently sits first overall in the individual 4A golf rankings.
