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.
At the end of Week 3 the Hall County football players have created the following power ratings. As the season goes on, I take into consideration the following criteria: 1) head to head competitions; 2) win/loss record; 3) ratio of points scored vs. points allowed; 4) opponents win/loss percentage. This week I rated the teams on the ratio of points scored against points allowed.

Chestatee High running back Ben Souther has big shoes to fill, if tradition holds steady in the War Eagle football program. Playing in an option-based offense, the War Eagles' running backs will get plenty of chances to show what they can do with the ball.
Souther, a junior, looks to become the third installment in Chestatee's history of successful running backs.
Dawson County's Madison Caldwell shot a 73 to win the Class AAA girls golf individual state title Monday at Horseshoe Bend in Roswell. Caldwell beat out second place finisher Clara Halsey of Sonoraville. The Dawson County girls finished seventh as a team with a score of 298. In addition to Caldwell's 73, Sydney Morgan shot a 103 and Hannah McConnell shot a 122 for the Lady Tigers. The Dawson County boys shot a 343 to finish seventh at the state tournament. David Ford led the way with an 81.
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).
