Summit Christian Academy

For many years the SCA athletes in both soccer and football have scheduled their games on Saturday afternoon due to the fact that the school did not have field lights in place.  That is not longer the case at SCA. “For our soccer teams, it will allow our Varsity and Junior Varsity matches to be completed without the worry of darkness,” shared SCA Athletic Director Lance Quessenberry. “We also run soccer tournaments that we have had to start during school times to get the matches in before dark. Now we can leave the athletes in class and still get the matches in.” “For our football team, it makes the game more than a game. Friday night games really are more of a social event than just a game now. It will bring our entire community together like nothing else in our school can.
