North Hall and Flowery Branch high schools were ackowledged for their success in sports this school year by finishing in the top 10 for Class AAA of the 2007-08 Georgia Athletic Directors Associaton's Dodge Directors Cup.
Robby Hefflinger hopes he gets drafted in the MLB amateur draft that starts today. The recent Gainesville High grad would love to have his name linked to the likes of Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Micah Owings, Braves minor league outfielder Jon Mark Owings, and Victor Menocal, who all got drafted following their senior season with the Red Elephants.
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).
