Riverside cross country coach Jim Myers said the only meet he had butterflies in his stomach for was the region championship. Before the race he told his boys "run fast." After the race was over, his team had won the 8-AA region championship. The Eagles went on to finish sixth at the state meet.
After the first three periods of play, the North Hall Trojans boys' basketball team never had a lead. When the buzzer sounded for the end of the game, they still didn't have the lead, but they had tied the game to send it to overtime, where they were able to edge out East Hall for a 72-69 victory.
After breaking their first two-game losing streak in five years, Gainesville (8-3) hopes it can ride the momentum of last week's first-round win against Rome, into a win in the second round of the Class AAAAA state playoffs against Kell (10-1) tonight in Marietta. This game is shaping up to feature two heavyweight offenses with a state quarterfinal berth going to the winner.
