Johnson High senior Grant Cagle shot a 3-under par, 33 in the Knights' (153) win against Pickens (219) on Tuesday at Royal Lakes Golf Course in Flowery Branch.
Gainesville High senior Zach Bennett turned more than a few heads last Wednesday against Johnson.
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.
The Flowery Branch High baseball team remained perfect on the season with a 14-10 win against East Hall on Monday night at the Hog Mountain Sports Complex in South Hall. The Falcons (7-0, 3-0 Region 7-AAA) finished the game with nine hits, highlighted by eight runs and six hits in the sixth inning. Each team had seven errors in the game.
GAINESVILLE - Rebuilding a soccer program is never easy, but for East Hall's second year boys coach Jonathan Lillie the task was significantly daunting.
One of my all-time favorite lines in the coach-speak library is "it doesn't matter how you start, it's how you finish." That line is normally thrown out when a team is struggling early on in the season, and the coach is hoping for some sort of ray of light to shine on his team.
North Hall senior Nick Long broke a 22-year-old school record Saturday at the Coaches' Invitational track meet on the campus of Georgia Tech in Atlanta. With a time of 4:26.55 in the 1,600 meter run, Long placed fifth among 30 competitors.
GAINESVILLE - The baseball season is still young, but Flowery Branch High is certainly asserting itself as a contender early on. The Falcons (6-0, 2-0 Region 7-AAA) won at Ivey-Watson Field for only the second time in school history with a 5-1 victory over Gainesville on Friday night. The last time Flowery Branch won at Ivey-Watson was during its region championship run in 2005. "We ...
GAINESVILLE - With all the pressure they put on Apalachee it was only a matter of time before the Lady Wolves found the back of the net.
BY BILL MURPHY firstname.lastname@example.org Parker Smith's high school basketball career is now complete. Jaymee Carnes' playing career at Gainesville High still has two more years to go. But both distinguished Hall County players were honored by Region 7-AAA's coaches on Friday when Smith was voted Region 7-AAA's Boys Player of the Year, and Carnes, only a sophomore, was voted Region 7-AAA's Girls Player of ...
GAINESVILLE - A team can't win a soccer game without scoring, that goes without saying, but sometimes it's a team's defense that actually wins the game.
They have eight returning starters off a team that went 21-7 in 2007 and are coming off an 18-2 rout of Johnson, their opponent returns seven starters from last year's state playoff team and is coming off a 16-1 win over Chestatee in which they pounded out 14 hits. Gainesville and Flowery Branch meet tonight in an early-season matchup of the top two teams in Region 7-AAA that ...
CLEVELAND - White County's Josh Ingram went 2-for-4 with a home run, double and 3 RBIs in White County's 11-7 win against Pickens on Friday night in Cleveland.
The North Hall girls soccer game at Walker scheduled for 6:30 tonight has been cancelled due to heavy rains in the Marietta area.
The Jefferson baseball team split a doubleheader with Wesleyan in the second round of the Class AA state tournament on Wednesday in Jefferson.
Not even the scouting report could accurately demonstrate how fast a team the Chestatee boys soccer team would encounter in Northwest Whitfield on Wednesday at War Eagle Stadium.
It was a defensive battle, and although West Hall's boys soccer team had a number of chances to score, the Spartans couldn't capitalize in a 2-0 loss to Oconee County in the second round of the Class AAA state tournament on Wednesday in Oakwood.
