GAINESVILLE - Lumpkin County High junior Devin Dunson pitched a complete game with nine strikeouts and allowed only one hit in the Indians' 16-1 win against East Hall on Friday night at the East Hall Park. He also led Lumpkin County (4-4, 2-3 Region 7-AAA) at the plate with a three-run home run.
CLEVELAND - Travis Rutkiewicz led the White County High baseball team with a 4-for-4 night at the plate and seven RBIs in an 11-5 win against previously unbeaten Flowery Branch on Thursday night in Cleveland.
GAINESVILLE - Lady Red Elephants goalkeeper Evelyn Murray has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right leg.
The Gainesville (8-3, 5-1) senior, whose been battling through torn ACLs since her sophomore year, overcame an injury that greatly hinders her range of motion to make a diving stop going to her left on a penalty kick and ensure her team a 5-2 win over Chestatee in penalty kicks on Thursday night at City Park.
GAINESVILLE - It would be entirely appropriate to say that Gainesville High's baseball team is in the midst of a playoff caliber stretch of the Region 7-AAA schedule. The Red Elephants drew the luck of the draw having to play all three fellow playoff qualifiers from last season - Flowery Branch, North Hall and Lumpkin County - consecutively.
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.
Flowery Branch's Jake Shewbert added to his strong performance at the Georgia Olympics, earning a fourth-place spot in the 3200 race with a time of 9 minutes, 44.1 seconds at Jefferson Memorial. Joining him in the race for the Falcons, Grant O'Callaghan was ninth (9:53.29).
