WHAT’S NEW Pace Academy has a new softball facility within the school’s Riverview Sports Complex in Mableton. The addition to the 23-acre complex includes an all-weather, artificial-turf softball field, a training facility, locker rooms, and bathrooms. In addition, during the 2017–18 school year, the Pace community will think critically about conservation, the Isdell Center for Global Leadership’s fourth annual global theme.
