Dominating The Diamond

I want to send out a big congratulations to Parkview High School baseball coach Chan Brown and his 2015 state champion team. There have been many many exceptional teams in Panther baseball diamond history and this year’s team did not disappoint. In fact, they put in a historic effort. Let’s start with 34 wins -- that is tops in Georgia baseball history. Plus, the Panthers posted an incredible 26-game winning streak to wrap up the year, surpassing a 22-game win streak that was tops in Gwinnett County.

Defending Champs Practice To Repeat

There is an old saying that there are only two seasons in Georgia: football season and 'spring football season'. Spring drills have wrapped up and this week, the GPB Sports team traveled south to visit the defending Class 6A state champion Packers of Colquitt County.

The Packers have a great tradition in football. Since the program began in 1978, the team has won 276 games, lost 164 and left two with a tied score. In the trophy case sit state title trophies from 1994 and 2014.

Superstar Takes Flight

If you follow high school sports and high school track in particular, you have to just scratch your head and be amazed at what is going on at Rockdale County High School, particularly in the running world of sprinter Candace Hill. At only fifteen years old, Candace has successfully defended a title in both the 100 meter and 200 meter dashes at the GHSA Girl’s State Track Meet.

Not only did the sophomore defend her standing title, but she did it with by logging an exceptional 11.34 in the 100 meter sprint and a time of 23.05 in the 200M.

Milton Lacrosse is Chasing a 10th Championship Ring

Catching, cradling and making goals are a way of life for the girl’s Lacrosse team at Milton High School. The Lady Eagles have a championship mindset.

Tim Godby has been the head coach for Milton’s Lacrosse team ever since 2005. From the beginning he has instilled a, “Whatever it takes” attitude. Consequently, the phrase has become a team motto, a motto that has carried the team to 9 state championships.

Digging For A Deuce

The Roswell Hornets boy’s lacrosse team is having another outstanding season following winning the 2014 GHSA state title last year under Coach Alex Chrzanowski. This year, with an incredible nineteen seniors returning, the hopes and expectations are sky high once again. The Hornets have posted an 18-2 record thus far and have reached the Final Four of the GHSA Lacrosse Championships for the third straight season.

Westlake Is Reloaded Again

The Westlake Lion’s track and field team has shown their pride numerous times, by bringing home four state championships.

As they prepare mentally and physically to compete for the 2015 title, they remember the excitement they felt after winning a back-to-back state championship last year.

“When we won state in 2014 my emotions were like a rush,” Justice Reeves continues, “It was so unbelievable. I was like wow we did that…we did it again!”

Harrison, Striding Down Fairways

The Harrison High School boys golf team is once again striding down fairways and charging after birdies as they get ready for the GHSA State Championships May 18 at the Sunset Country Club in Moultrie, Georgia.

Coach Dennis Attaway is in his fourth season as head coach of the Hoyas and this year’s team is loaded with talent.

“Senior Sam Maryland and Junior Luke Schniederjans play one-two and have done an outstanding job this year. Nick Bell, Chad Barfield, Will Leanos and Zach Womack have also played very well for us this year," Coach Attaway said.

Two in a Row

Make it two straight GHSA state gymnastic titles for the Lady Wolves of Buford High School. Coach Amanda Allen’s team tallied a total of 111.425 points to proudly perch themselves on top of the state championship mountain.

Cougars Kicking It

The Chattahoochee boys soccer team is off to a fantastic start. The Cougars won their first sixteen games, giving the team a sparkling 16-0 record before losing a heartbreaker to Roswell, 1-0, this week. The Cougars are ranked No. 1 in Class 6A. Coach Les Meenan, in his sixteenth year at the head of the program, is having a great time, coaching, what he calls, a great bunch of kids who never give up.
