Madras Students Take Top Honors In Mystery Writing Contest
From the Newnan Times-Herald, October 20, 2013
The Friends of Powell Library 2013 Author Party and Annual Meeting the evening of Oct. 8 at the nearby Powell Expo Center convened for its third year, and this year featured its first mystery story writing contest to coincide with the author party speaker, Patricia Sprinkle. Sprinkle, who resides in South Carolina, opened the evening discussing her career, primarily the origins of some of her favorite books. Madras Middle School had both winners for the middle school division with first place taken by Anna Davis for "The Adventures of Anna Davis: The Mysterious Mist," and runner-up honors to Nathaniel Wolcott for "Where the Water Runs Cold."

Congratulations, Madras Eagles, 2013 County Football Champs! A Perfect Record!
Not many quarterbacks are called on in overtime to throw the go-ahead touchdown and then to make a game-winning stop on defense. But Madras eighth-grader Kyle McLaren and his Eagles teammates delivered in both instances during Tuesday’s Coweta County Middle School Athletic League Championship football game at Northgate High’s Henry Seldon Field. After trading score for score and play for play through four quarters, the difference between the No. 1 seeded Madras and No. 2 Lee came down to a single play in a 22-20 overtime victory that capped off an undefeated 2013 season for the Eagles.

Madras Middle School eighth grader Levi Robinson has loved football since the age of three. Leading the team in receiving touchdowns, Levi has had the opportunity to play many positions including running back and safety. Living by the motto “size doesn’t matter” has led to two impressive seasons for Levi; he lists catching a touchdown pass in the championship game as a season highlight. Coach Roy Hitchcock describes Levi as committed, willing to better himself each day, and a player who never made excuses. “He was an excellent young man to coach,” states Coach Hitchcock. Teacher Audrey Mallet also sings his accolades. “Levi is thoughtful, sensitive, and respectful towards his peers and teachers. He is dedicated to doing his best in class and on the field.” Levi looks forward to playing football at Northgate next year but for now, he is focused on the upcoming basketball season and helping Madras add another trophy to the case.
