Gordon Lee

Postseason baseball berths are being sewn up in northwest Georgia, but even though some teams have already secured their playoff appearance it doesn't mean the next week isn't crucial. In fact, a crucial win or loss in the last few regular season games can mean the difference between favorable or unwanted seeding.

CALHOUN, Ga. — If there were any questions concerning Conard Broom's ability to pitch at the next level, the Gordon Lee High School pitcher provided plenty of answers Monday night.

As far as signature wins go, Dade County's 6-0 win over Calhoun last week was just what first-year coach Brent Cooper needed.

The injured mouth and dental repair for one player and the staples in the head of another eventually will be forgotten, but Arts & Sciences baseball coaches, players, administrators and fans never will forget the heart-felt hospitality and sympathy extended by host Marion County after two Patriots players collided during a game last week.

The halfway mark of the Georgia high school baseball region schedules is here, and little has been decided in the Chattanooga area.

A little inside information paid off for the Chattanooga State Tigers this week. Dalton senior Grant Sane, on the advice of CSTCC assistant coach Joe Wingate, signed on to play for the Tigers in a ceremony at the high school.

Even though it was the home opener and the first game of the annual Scenic City Classic, Thursday was just another day for most of the McCallie baseball family.

RINGGOLD, Ga. — Brent Tucker admits this prep baseball season has a different feel to it for his usually pitching-rich Ringgold Tigers, but though there may be some questions to be answered on the mound, finding an ace isn't one of them.

CHICKAMAUGA, Ga. — High school athletics and high-level politics are about to collide in Georgia, and if lawmakers have their way, big-time change could be coming to the Georgia High School Association and its members.

CHICKAMAUGA, Ga. — When Lester Galyon allows himself to look at the video of Monday night's 64-56 Georgia Class A girls' first-round playoff loss to Towns County, the Gordon Lee coach will see that his team did almost everything right.

A week off was one of the last things Brent Raby or Sam Snider wanted to see. Inactivity is the enemy of a wrestling coach, and when an unexpected vacation comes during championship week, emergency mode sets in.

One of the fun things the rail birds at Gordon Lee High School baseball games enjoyed doing during last season's magical run to the Class A championship was debate on when THE inning was going to happen.

Top 11 team scores: 1. Cleveland 215, 2. Wilson Central 166.5, 3. Bradley Central 141, 4. Ravenwood 132, 5. Soddy-Daisy 120.5, 6. Franklin 108.5, 7. Heritage 102, 8. Clarksville 98.5, 9. Cookeville 96.5, 10. Blackman 84.5, 11. Walker Valley 84.

The Georgia High School Association announced the sites for the postponed state traditional wrestling tournament Friday afternoon, electing to hold separate events next week for each of its six classes.

TRION, Ga. — If any good news can come out of a 65-point loss, Ed Clendenen was able to find it.
