The Gainesville High volleyball team picked up a win against Madison County 2-1 (18-25, 25-23, 15-7) on Saturday at the Winder-Barrow tournament in Winder. The Lady Red Elephants lost matches to Winder-Barrow 2-0 (25-11, 25-20) and Monroe-Area 2-0 (25-11, 28-26).
Class AAA's No. 8 Gainesville now stands alone as the only unbeaten team in Hall County after a 27-0 win against North Hall on Friday night at The Brickyard. The Red Elephants (4-0) have absolutely dominated to this point, allowing only 14 points this season.
It's pretty simple to figure out why the Flowery Branch High softball team was so successful against North Hall on Saturday in the North Fall Classic at North Hall. In each inning, the lead-off hitter started the inning with a hit and came around to score for the Lady Falcons (15-11) as they went on to win 8-0 in five innings.
With a large lead quickly dwindling, Lumpkin County coach Dustin Allen went with his ace Cody Waters earlier than he had hoped Tuesday against East Hall. The right-handed senior responded with 5 2/3 innings of steady work in long-relief duty, allowed only one run and led the Indians (14-8, 11-5 Region 7-AAA) to an 11-6 win in Gainesville.
