Lanierland: Gainesville holds off Johnson

Led by Jaymee Carnes' 27 points, Gainesville made it through the first round of the Jackson EMC Lanierland Basketball Tournament beating Johnson 53-43 Saturday night. Carnes came up big down the stretch, scoring 11 in the fourth quarter, while grabbing three defensive rebounds and one offensive rebound.

Despite a sluggish start by the Lady Red Elephants, and a beginning of the game in which Johnson made four of its first five shots, Gainesville went into halftime with a four-point lead.

BUFORD - T.J. Pridemore admitted that he has a hard time with staying up too late and having to get up early.

Football: From the Brickyard to the Dome: A look back at North Hall's journey

It can be hard for a season to parallel expectations going into the season. There are often times too many unexpected variables, such as injuries, intersquad discontent and player misconduct, that can sideline a season with previously high expectations.

North Hall football coach Bob Christmas didn't want to turn a blind-eye to the possibility of adversity to an otherwise talented team when the season began.

Football: Trojans' young guns make big impact

Thomas Sprague had to make a split-second decision. And there was no room for error.

Against Perry last week in the Class AAA state quarterfinals, the North Hall sophomore linebacker was in the end zone, in coverage, when the ball came right in his direction. His first reaction was he wasn't in position for the interception, so he went with his next best option to bat the ball down and prevent a touchdown. It proved to be a very wise decision.
