The Board of Directors of Escambia Academy is delighted to announce that our esteemed Assistant Headmaster, Hugh Fountain, has been elevated to the position of Headmaster! His love for the Cougars is evident in all that he does for our school and students both on and off the field. This is a time for proven leadership and dedication and there is no doubt that Coach Fountain can bring those skills to bear in this new roll.

This exciting change is a pivotal step in moving Escambia Academy in the direction of growth and stability needed to carry our great legacy forward for generations to come.

We are excited that Coach Fountain has agreed to take this opportunity as Mr. Heigle resigned his post as Headmaster, effective immediately.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Fall Festival–it was a great success and was enjoyed by all.  The PTO organized a fun event for everyone and we appreciate their hard work.

Don’t forget–Thanksgiving Break is November 23-November 27th. 

During Thanksgiving Break, work will begin in the Elementary School for repainting of the hallways, auditorium and office area.  An informational pamphlet was sent home on Friday with elementary students.  The classrooms will be repainted over the Christmas Break and more information will be sent closer to this time.  

As the weather turns cooler, each student should review the Student Handbook for the dress code on pages 8-11. Particularly, there are no hoods allowed on clothing at school. Please see me if you have any questions about an item being appropriate for school.

We are excited to offer the opportunity to order Winter Apparel with the EA logo on it. Attached is an Order Form for these items–there are samples available in the office. The first order will be made on Friday, November 20th so please turn in order forms with payment before that time–checks should be made to Escambia Academy with “Winter Apparel order” noted on the Memo line. We expect to have the items ordered available on  Monday when we return from Thanksgiving Break.  Additional orders will be filled as order forms are turned in with payment.  All of the items offered (except the Sport Shirt) are appropriate for school wear according to the dress code. These items will make great Christmas gifts for friends and family as well!

We are proud of the Fall Sports Teams and the successful seasons they had.  Basketball will begin soon and the schedules are available in the school office and will be posted on the website.  We will be deciding the date for the Fall Sports Banquet soon and will send out that information when available.

AUBURN Escambia Academy finishes its season 7-5

By | Athletics, Football 2015, News

AUBURN – Escambia Academy put up a good fight against Lee-Scott Academy earlier tonight, but the Warriors prevailed to win 35-24 in the quarterfinals of the AISA Class 3A state playoffs.

The Cougars and Warriors played a close first half, abd traded scores in the second half before LSA took a lead it would never give up.

LSA drew first blood after only two plays when stout running back Mitchell Lewis ran the ball 62 yards on a sweep play with 11:23 left in the first quarter. Lewis finished the game with five touchdowns on the night.

EA answered with a nice 34-yard Kainoa Gumapac pass to Trey Tuner. The Cougars trailed 7-6 after not converting their first extra point attempt. EA wouldn’t be able to cash in on extra point attempts the rest of the night.

After recovering a Lewis fumble and on the next EA offensive possession, Cougars running back Kris Brown made LSA pay with a 95-yard run for a touchdown with 10:02 left in the first half.

Lewis scored his second touchdown with 6:55 left in the first half, and the Warriors took a 14-12 lead into the break.

Right out of the gate, the Cougars came out scoring on a 67-yard dash from Turnerto take back the lead with 9:35 left in the third quarter. EA led 18-14.

After trading possessions and EA getting things rolling on defense, the Warriors found running room on a 21-yard TD rush from Lewis. With the extra point, the Warriors took a 21-18 lead.

However, EA answered back.

Gumapac found Pat McGhee for a 53-yard strike on the first play from the line of scrimmage to put the game back in the Cougars’ court.

The Cougars were able to hold Lewis on a fourth-and-two play to start the fourth quarter, but their offense couldn’t get anything going, deciding to punt with the down at fourth-and-three.

LSA then took its lead it would never give up on a 48-yard running score with 8:33 left in the game.

LSA scored its final touchdown of the night after putting together a more-than 5-minute drive to go ahead 35-24 with 47.6 seconds left.

With the ball and 39.9 seconds left in the game, the Cougars tried everything they could getting down to the Warrior 37-yard line, but didn’t get the ball in the end zone.

EA finishes its season 7-5.
