From staff reports
After claiming its first region title in Region 8-AA, Jefferson's football team were honored with a total of seven players named to the All-Region team on Thursday, while Dragons coach Bill Navas was named Coach of the Year.
FLOWERY BRANCH - Flowery Branch's offense puts up numbers on the ground that would earn the respect of an old school wing-T coach. The Falcons (11-2) have two bruising running backs and a shifty junior quarterback, Connor Shaw, that is adept at tucking it in and running with the football.
The North Georgia Christian girls basketball team picked up a home win with a 42-25 victory against Mt. Zion of Jonesboro on Thursday in Gainesville.
Sarah Rhodes led the Lady Chargers (9-4) with 11 points, five rebounds and five steals. Hannah Parker and Ashley Valentine each scored nine points for North Georgia Christian. Parker also had a team-high eight rebounds.
Since 2000, Buford is a perfect 6-0 in semifinal games played at the Georgia Dome, and while the location for this year's semifinal matchup is different, the top-ranked Wolves hope to have the same success.
