The high school football season sure is going to be fun to watch down the home stretch to the playoffs. Whoever designed the schedule set the stage for a game in week 11 like Hall County hasn't seen in a long time.
Lumpkin County High grinded out a 20-play, 80-yard touchdown drive in the second half en route to a 17-0 win over Pickens on Friday night in Jasper. Daniel Abercrombie capped the drive with a touchdown run from the 7 for the Indians (3-3, 2-1 Region 7A-AAA).
The taste of victory has never been sweeter for the Creekview Lady Grizzlies, who defeated the White County Lady Warriors 5-0 on Friday afternoon at Lanier Point softball complex in Gainesville.
The Lady Grizzlies (29-6) were led by the brilliant pitching of sophomore Haley Brannon, who pitched a complete-game, two-hit shutout to help lead her team to victory. Brannon also added eight strikeouts with just one walk in the win.

As Madison Caldwell walked the fairway at Horseshoe Bend Country Club in Roswell, the Dawson County senior doubled over in the pain that she was feeling in the right side of her stomach, taking the breath out of her lungs for a second or two.
Gainesville High senior Spencer Ralston earned second place, behind a strong third-round 67, at the Georgia Junior Championship on Wednesday in Augusta. Ralston, the Class AAAAA Golfer of the Year, finished the 54-hole, three-day outing with a total score of 8-under (208).
