Lady Indians begin quest for state title

DAHLONEGA - Lumpkin County High softball coach Lori Hall stacked the deck to get to this point. So the fact that the Lady Indians (17-13-1) enter this weekend's Class AAA North Sectionals as the No. 1 seed isn't a surprise to either their second-year coach or players.

The Lady Indians played a tough regular season schedule, seeing top competition, with tournament appearances at Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe and Madison County. And while Lumpkin County didn't finish first against top-ranked competition from all classifications, it was a pulse-check for the Region 7-AAA schedule and beyond.

High school cross country: Falcons chasing Spartans for title

The difference between the West Hall and Flowery Branch boys cross country teams has been razor thin this season. The Spartans, Class AAA's No. 4 in the state according to gatfxc.com, have picked up two wins this season against the fifth-ranked Falcons.

While West Hall has won both races, it's the margin of victory that makes this matchup so compelling. The Spartans finished second (110 points) at the recent Mountain Invitational at Unicoi State Park. The Falcons were right over their shoulder, just one point behind.
