The threat of severe weather has forced cancellations of the following baseball games today: Pickens at Flowery Branch, Creekview at Lumpkin County, Gilmer at North Hall, and Towns County at Lakeview Academy.

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.
