The Petit Le Mans is already the premier race in the American Le Mans Series. This year, it's also a meeting ground for four recent Indy 500 champions. Helio Castroneves (2001, 2002), Gil de Ferran (2003), Dario Franchitti (2007) and this year's Indy 500 and IRL points champion, Scott Dixon, are all former Indy champs racing in the Le Mans Prototype-2 classification in the 10-hour race Saturday at Road Atlanta in Braselton.
For 12 minutes on Friday night, North Hall's offense resembled the high-powered running game that took the Trojans to the Class AAA state semifinals in 2007. It only took the Trojans (2-2, 1-0 Region 7A-AAA) four plays to score three touchdowns in the second quarter en route to a 34-24 win against Creekview (0-4, 0-1) at The Brickyard.
The win helped sooth the sore feelings from losing back-to-back games leading into the subregion opener against the Grizzlies. More importantly, it puts North Hall right at the top of the pack in Region 7A-AAA heading into next Friday's matchup ...
Region 7-AAA used to be a fairly predictable region when it came to football. The same cluster of teams would lay claim to the four playoff spots more often than not. Even when the subdivided region came into play in 2006 things didn't change all that much.
Class AAA's No. 8 Gainesville now stands alone as the only unbeaten team in Hall County after a 27-0 win against North Hall on Friday night at The Brickyard. The Red Elephants (4-0) have absolutely dominated to this point, allowing only 14 points this season.
It's pretty simple to figure out why the Flowery Branch High softball team was so successful against North Hall on Saturday in the North Fall Classic at North Hall. In each inning, the lead-off hitter started the inning with a hit and came around to score for the Lady Falcons (15-11) as they went on to win 8-0 in five innings.
Riverside Military Academy's football team is taking Region 8-AA by storm with three wins right out of the gate to open the season. The Eagles (3-0, 2-0) got their biggest win of the season with a 48-2 victory over Rabun County (0-3) Friday night at Maginnis Field.
Chestatee's Stan Luttrell is the ultimate optimist when it comes to his team. The War Eagles coach has no doubt in his mind they are better than the team that got shelled by Gainesville 35-0 in Week 1.
EVANS -The fifth-ranked Gainesville baseball program lost the Class AAAAA state championship game, 5-2, against Greenbrier on Wednesday in Evans. The best-of-three series was a split in the first two games Monday, forcing game 3.

FAYETTEVILLE - Buford baseball coach Tony Wolfe got the icewater bath when it was all said and done Saturday night. At the same time, Wolves catcher Joey Bart was crouched down, holding tight to his team's shiny state championship trophy.

COLUMBUS – The scores were good for Gainesville's boys, especially when you consider the fast greens and humid air pressing golfers during the Class AAAAA championship meet at the Country Club of Columbus.
Kim McMillan enjoys all the positive feedback she hears in the community about the University of North Georgia's softball success.

Tapped out of energy from a three-hour slugfest and numb from freezing temperatures most of the night, Gainesville's players were still able to celebrate following Friday's playoff opener against Creekview.
