From staff reports
FLOWERY BRANCH - Flowery Branch senior defensive end Izaan Cross resisted the temptation of letting the lure of college recruiting get in the way of his final season of high school football. It seems to have panned out pretty well for Cross, who holds scholarship offers from some of the biggest Division I schools in the country, and who was a driving force for the Falcons' run to the state title game.
When the Johnson High boys and girls basketball teams take to the floor tonight a lot of things will be the same. The uniforms will be blue and white, the opponent will be another high school team and the game plan will be to win.
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).
