From staff reports
FLOWERY BRANCH - Cody Ackerman was waiting on a fastball when he stepped to the plate in the eighth inning for No. 1-ranked Flowery Branch Friday night and he was more than willing to be the one to play the role of hero for the Falcons with the bases loaded and the score tied 3-3 against Lumpkin County.
CUMMING - North Hall's baseball team didn't want to resort to cheering for another team in order to qualify for the playoffs. However, that is what it has come to for the Trojans (16-10, 13-9 Region 7-AAA) after falling to West Forsyth 13-3 in six innings Thursday night in Cumming.
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).
Spencer Adams is not going to let the projections of his talent interfere with his preparation. The first-year minor league right-handed pitcher for Single-A Kannapolis Intimidators of the White Sox organization said he's going to continue to show up to the ballpark every day with one goal in mind: What do I have to do to get better?
