12,500 Sq. Ft Sports Performance Center Opens at Providence

Providence's new sports performance facility known as the WIN Center has been a huge hit with students and staff. Check out today's article in the Gwinnett Daily Post and scroll through the pictures to get a look at the 12,500-square foot facility.

To quote Athletic Director Brad Williams, "Our teams are just loving it. The amount of kids putting in work now just because they love going there is great to see. We really wanted the kids to focus on how they can be better versions of themselves, getting bigger, stronger, and faster."

The WIN Center is the result of the generosity and prayers of numerous folks in our school community. Thanks to everyone who helped make it a reality! #GoStorm

When the American League Division Series between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox starts tonight, we will be paying it a little extra special attention. The matchup will pit Providence class of 2005 graduate Collin McHugh of the Rays against class of 2015 graduate Garrett Whitlock of the Red Sox. Both guys will be in the bullpen for their respective teams, so they could make an appearance in any game in the series. Join us in wishing both guys the very best in the series!

Name: Madelyn Levy

School: Providence Christian

Class: Senior

Favorite pro tennis player: Coco Gauff

Best tennis player in Gwinnett not on my team: Bella Tucker

Favorite playing surface: Asphalt

Song that gets me ready for a match: Any song in the genre of pop gets me pretty excited to play

Favorite teacher: I’m honored to be taught by each teacher at Providence, no favorite!

Favorite restaurant: I love Agavero, great Mexican food!

Noteworthy:

♦ Went 16-1 as a sophomore

♦ Also a key starter on the Storm’s basketball team

Coach Anne Crist’s take: “Madeline is the quintessential athlete: focused, mentally tough and highly disciplined. She is a joy to all her coaches, coming to tennis after basketball playoffs, ready to jump into another tennis season. She lost only one match in her sophomore and junior years, playing mostly at the No. 2 spot. But in addition to her athletic prowess, she is kind, exemplifies great character and is respected by teammates and coaches alike. We will be sorry to see her go, but she will be leaving a great legacy at Providence for others to emulate.”

Maymie deMayo is the Gwinnett Daily Post's Fan's Choice Winter Athlete of the Week. Maymie is sophomore member of the varsity girls basketball team. She was selected for the poll after the team's win over Strong Rock where she had 18 points, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots.

According to Coach Kindig, “Maymie is an incredible young woman. There are plenty of things she brings on the court, but the person that she is and the way that she plays is where her impact is truly felt. She is a culture-driver for our team and is a captain as a 10th-grader. That speaks to the way that she leads by example and the tone she sets by the effort with which she plays. She has been coming into the gym multiple times a week all season at 6:30 a.m. to get extra shots up. Quite honestly, it’s been a long time since we’ve had a player dedicate herself to her game, our team and our program the way Maymie has these last few months. She is one of our most coachable kids and the type of player that makes coaching fun.”

Thanks to everyone who voted. And congratulations Maymie!
