What's Happening in UA High School Sports!

During these unprecedented times, two of our very own coaches found a way to represent 
the 3 C's of Union Academy while practicing social distancing and reducing
COVID-19 community spread.
Robert Rushing (wrestling/baseball) and Delaney Smith (cheer) gave up their Friday night to help serve food and hand out groceries at the Union County Community Shelter. 
Thank you to both of them for continuing to represent what we do best at Union Academy!!
Union Academy Athletics Mission Statement
