Cross country dominates final regular season meet

Taking three of the top seven positions, the five-time defending region champion SCHS Lady Gamecock cross country team finished its regular season with an impressive performance on its home course at the Black Creek Scout Reservation on Oct. 18. 

On Wednesday after the Sylvania Telephone press deadline, the Red and White hosted the Region 4AA meet at the scout camp as well. The state meet at Carrollton for Class AA girls will begin at 8:45 a.m. on Nov. 4.

It was the worst of teams. It is the best of teams

From the worst that Augusta has to offer last week to the best that Augusta has to offer this week. 

That is how the 4AA schedule has worked out for Ron Duncan’s gridiron Gamecocks.

Last week it was Josey, who will probably finish the season next week with a nine-game losing streak and a 0-7 record in region play. 

Friday night it will be the Glenn Hills Spartans who should finish the regular season next week with a 6-0 record against Richmond County schools.

Cheerleaders complete regular season in Statesboro

With an impressive first place finish from among seven Class AA schools, the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheerleaders of Vette Rountree and Mary Helen Harrison completed their regular season competition schedule at Statesboro High School on the afternoon of Saturday, Oct. 21. 

Next on the schedule is the Region 4AA meet at Putnam County High School on Nov. 4.

For the first time all season, SCHS fans got to see their only region rival for the title, Jefferson County. 

Softball sweeps East Laurens, in Sweet 16

Winning their first state playoff series since 2014 and their first at home since 2009, the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Jim Randall Doyle swept East Laurens 6-5 and 10-1 on Oct. 11 to advance to the Sweet 16 round of the tournament. 

On Wednesday, the team traveled to Alma to face 2AA champion Bacon County in a doubleheader. Should there have been a split on Oct. 18 the rubber game of the series will be this Thursday, Oct. 19, afternoon at 5:00. 

Lady Gamecocks dominate first home cross country meet

Finally with their first home meet on their all-new course at the Black Creek Scout Reservation, the SCHS Lady Gamecock cross country team of Cindy LeMaster dominated the field on Oct. 11.

On Wednesday, Oct. 18, the Red and White hosted their final regular season match in preparation for the Oct. 25 Region 4AA meet, also to be held on the Black Creek course.

The Wednesday meet was project to be like a “pre-region” meet as Jefferson County, Butler, AR Johnson, Glenn Hills, Westside, Burke County and Jenkins County were scheduled to attend.  

Josey here for Homecoming football game

Josey’s reeling Eagles will be at Kelly Memorial Stadium Friday night for a 7:30 kickoff in the annual Homecoming game for the Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan.

While the Gamecocks have a 15-game regular season winning streak, the Eagles will come in on a six-game losing streak since winning their first game of the season over currently 0-7 Groves. 

Rooster fans can expect to see a wide-open attack that will frequently feature as many receivers as legally possible.

Gamecocks run roughshod over Patriots 49-0

Making their first goal-line stand of the season on the night’s first series, the third-ranked Screven County High School’s Dirty Bird defense pitched its fourth consecutive shutout.

While the “D” took care of business, the Rooster offense was running roughshod over home-standing Westside’s defense to the tune of 14.2 yards per play en route to an easy 49-0 win over the Patriots.

Cheerleaders take second in Sweet Onion

Just one more regular season competition to go before the Region 4AA competition at Putnam County High School on Nov. 4, the SCHS Lady Gamecock competition cheerleaders of Vette Rountree and Mary Helen Harrison took second in Vidalia’s Sweet Onion Competition on Oct. 14.

That final regular season meet will be this Saturday, Oct. 21, at Statesboro High School.

Region 2AA Bacon County edged the Lady Gamecocks for first place from among the seven AA squads competing.

Lady Gamecocks fall in region title series

Never getting started, the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Jim Randall Doyle fell twice to home-standing Harlem on Oct. 4 to finish the regular season at 18-9 and as the Region 4AA runner-up. 

On Wednesday, Oct. 11, after the Sylvania Telephone’s press deadline, the team hosted Region 3AA third seeded East Laurens in a double header to start the Class AA state playoffs. If there was a split on Wednesday the deciding game will be this Thursday, Oct. 12, afternoon at 5:00.

Gamecocks to face Patriots at ‘The Battlefield’

Facing a team that ended a 13-game losing streak in convincing fashion last week with a 53-22 win over home-standing Josey, the third-ranked Screven County High School Gamecocks of Ron Duncan will travel to Augusta Friday to face the Westside Patriots in the stadium they call “The Battlefield.” 

SCHS stands at 5-0, 3-0 in Region 4AA play with Westside being 1-5, and 1-2.

Friday the 13th finds Gamecocks at Westside

There is a good bet that neither Pamela nor Jason Voorhees will be in the stands at The Battlefield and the nearest Crystal Lake is 32 miles away in Aiken County, South Carolina, but tomorrow night is Friday the 13th and the Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan will be back in 4AA action as they face the suddenly explosive Westside Patriots.

Friday the 13th is not a jinx for the Gamecocks. 

State softball playoffs in Sylvania Oct. 11

Hosting either 3AA No. 3 seed East Laurens or 3AA No. 4 seed Washington County, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks of Jim Randall Doyle will begin the Class AA state playoffs with a double header on Oct. 11 at the local field. 

Should there be a split there will be a third game on Thursday, Oct. 12.

On Wednesday, Oct. 4, after the Sylvania Telephone’s press deadline, the 18-7 Lady Gamecocks traveled to Harlem to face the 16-6 Lady Bulldogs in the opening two games of the Region 4AA championship series. 

Gamecocks whip upstart Harlem 35-0

Amassing an incredible 550 yards of total offense, their third time in five games over the 500 total yard mark, the Screven County Gamecocks of Coach Ron Duncan rolled past the Harlem Bulldogs 35-0 in a game that was not nearly as close as that score would indicate. 

It was the annual Hall of Fame Game as the inductees are Bobby Cannon (Class of 1958), Don Tyre (Class of 1965), Matthew Sheley (Class of 2003), and Kate Freeman Haslam (Class of 2006).

Off week of football gives time for reflection on the season

For the third since the season opener back on Aug. 19 at Paulson Stadium, the football Gamecocks of Ron Duncan have an open Friday night. 

The first and third are on the schedule published long ago. The middle was Statesboro’s choice. If nothing else, our Roosters are getting plenty of rest and should be fresh for the stretch drive.

Right now the key is to get through the next three games injury-free and fine tune some things. 

Jefferson County will be here on Nov. 3. 

Things have gone pretty good thus far in 2017. 

Cross country finally gets a meet completed

After a complete cancellation of one meet and a pair of incomplete meets, the SCHS cross country team of Cindy LeMaster finally got a complete meet in on Sept. 28 when they claimed a win at a three way meet in Claxton. 

The team also participated in a makeup of the Ray Miller Invitational at Magnolia Springs in Millen on Sept. 30, but without a complete team.

The Red and White will next be in action on Oct. 11 when it hosts a meet at its new home course at the Black Creek Scout Reservation on Poor Robin Road.  The meet is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. 

Canetto named Region 4AA Player of the Year

In a seldom seen move, the Region 4AA softball coaches opted for a player on a region season runner-up instead of region champion for top honors when the skippers named SCHS senior Kara Canetto the 4AA Player of the Year at a meeting last week.  

Joining Canetto on the All-Region Softball Team were sophomore pitcher Sarah Beasley, senior catcher Maggie Hafer, and senior second baseman Payton Ward.

Few and far between are the times both the Player of the Year and the Pitcher of the Year do not come from the region champion. 

Finally, a meaningful game on the schedule

The early games are what they are. 

We easily won the two football games against the two schools from the Low Country across the Savannah River. Then Statesboro wouldn’t play. Finally, 4AA play opened on Sept. 15 and the end result has been 99-0 in those two games.

Now comes along a game with some buildup. Friday night Kelly Memorial Stadium will showcase a pair of teams 2-0 in region play. One team is going to go to 3-0. Three region wins made the playoffs last season. Someone can really make a statement.

Gamecocks record seconds straight shutout, whip Laney 49-0

Once mighty Laney put up barely a fight last Friday night as they surrendered 402 rushing yards and nearly 500 total yards to the red hot and third-ranked Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan in a 49-0, 4AA, win by the Roosters in Lucy C. Laney Stadium. SCHS improved to an overall 4-0, 2-0 in Region play, and now prepares for a big battle with Harlem’s Bulldogs (4-1, 2-0) in Kelly Memorial Stadium Friday evening.

Pounding out rushing yardage seemingly at will the Gamecock ground game accumulated 402 yards on a mere 34 carries for a healthy 11.8 per carry average.

Hall of Fame to induct four Sept. 29

Featuring a group of inductees whose playing days cover five decades with graduation dates spanning 1958- 2006, the Screven County Athletic Hall of Fame will induct four new members tomorrow evening at its annual banquet concluding at halftime of the SCHS-Harlem football game. 

The inductees are Bobby Cannon (Class of 1958), Don Tyre (Class of 1965), Matthew Sheley (Class of 2003), and Kate Freeman Haslam (Class of 2006).
