Johnson's boys soccer team now has everyone's attention in Class AAA. Scanning the first round results from the tournament bracket, the Knights' 10-0 trouncing of Troup County sticks out more than any other match. No other team in AAA recorded a mercy rule win, though Grovetown beat Crisp County 9-0, and St. Pius X won its match over Heritage (Catoosa) 6-0. I always wonder when a team opens the playoffs with such a convincing win, ...
In my three years covering high school sports, never have I seen the transferring of student-athletes from one school to another like here in Hall County.
For a second there, it looked like Georgia's football team was going to make it through the entire spring without the word "arrest" coming up. It was almost too good to be true for Bulldog Nation.
Don't fix it if it ain't broke. If I'm affiliated with of one of 20 northeast Georgia schools in The Times' coverage area, that's my stance. As you may have heard, sometime in May, the Georgia High School Association will decide whether to drastically alter the current five-classification format for its sports. In March, the reclassification committee voted on what's known as the 4/8 plan, which splits the state into four classifications that branch out ...
Katie Scali knew she had a good team this season, and like any good coach, she made it her job to hide from her team just how good she thought they were.
North Hall started the baseball season splitting its first two games, losing the second 11-1 to Flowery Branch. In their third game of the season, the Trojans were on their way to another sound defeat in their Region 8-AAA opener at White County, trailing 9-3 through five innings.
John McFall has seen a lot of West Hall tennis teams in his tenure as coach of the Spartans, which dates back to 1988.
Yes, it's early in the baseball season and there are plenty of games to be played, but it's hard not to notice Flowery Branch's quick start.
In recent years, Hall County has been a producer of top-tier high school soccer teams. This year is no different. In Class AAA, the boys' side has two teams, Johnson and Gainesville, inside the state's top five. The undefeated Knights (8-0) are ranked No. 3, and the defending state champion Red Elephants (6-1) are No. 4, according to the EuroSportScoreboard.com coaches poll. Both schools are prime candidates to continue a trend of Hall County schools ...
Hey, I've got a brilliant idea. Let's take five high school basketball teams from the metro Atlanta area, another from Hall County, one from Rabun County and one from LaGrange and have them play a basketball tournament in Dalton, a place two or more hours away from their schools. And now let's ask the fans and community members to take off work early, pile in their cars and make the trek to an event site ...
I was sitting outside enjoying the beautiful weather Sunday when AC/DC's "Thunderstuck" started playing on the iPhone.
Take heed, Braves fans: this is the time of year for hope.
It was almost like a movie.
An all-Tigers SEC Championship kicks off Saturday afternoon in the Georgia Dome as No. 5 Missouri faces No. 3 Auburn. A national title appearance is on the line if the pathetically slow, boring, and overrated Ohio State Buckeyes lay an egg in the Big 10 championship game.
Gainesville High School, like a lot of top high school teams around the country, has a very loyal alumni fan base.
Georgia and Georgia Tech treated everyone to A Tale of Four Teams Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. It's uniquely American and without the assorted pressures of Christmas. A time to be grateful for life's many blessings. Family, friends, health, and our wonderful country of opportunity and advancement.
For someone who's blind, Jake Olson sure has great vision.
