GAINESVILLE - East Hall boys basketball coach Joe Dix knows exactly what is at stake when the Vikings (18-5, 8-1 Region 7A-AAA) visit Chestatee tonight. The Vikings coach goes as far as agreeing this is their most important game of the season as region seeds still hang in the balance for next week's Region 7-AAA tournament.
GAINESVILLE - With only two seniors on a Riverside Military Academy roster dominated by underclassmen, a sixth straight state championship was probably too much to ask for. So, it's probably just as well that the team scoring element was removed from this year's Georgia Independent Schools Association traditional wrestling tournament.

GAINESVILLE - Despite considering themselves a young and inexperienced team, the Riverside Military Academy wrestlers proved to the rest of the Georgia Independent Schools that they are indeed still a force to be reckoned with.
The Eagles advanced nine wrestlers to the quarterfinals of the GISA State Wrestling Tournament on Friday night at Riverside.

Today's the day when the top high school football prospects put the pen to paper and sign their letter of intent to play college football. National signing day makes all those flimsy verbal commitments finally the real thing.
For the first time in school history, Dawson County's boys and girls golf teams swept the Region 7-AAA championships on Tuesday at Crystal Falls Golf Course in Dawsonville. The Tigers and Lady Tigers advance to the state tournament on May 18.
With a large lead quickly dwindling, Lumpkin County coach Dustin Allen went with his ace Cody Waters earlier than he had hoped Tuesday against East Hall. The right-handed senior responded with 5 2/3 innings of steady work in long-relief duty, allowed only one run and led the Indians (14-8, 11-5 Region 7-AAA) to an 11-6 win in Gainesville.
