Sports news for Screven County and surrounding areas.

The games have begun

Last week everything on the Screven County High School athletic campus was in full swing. Latecomers to the events, track, finally got their 2010 season off to a start on Thursday.
While the weather has not warmed to the spirit of the players and fans, with some less-than-diehards still awaiting true spring-like weather before showing up, the fun has begun in earnest.
Off to the best start -- not unexpectedly -- are the Lady Gamecock netters of Diane Freeman.
Already 6-1 with a runner-up spot Saturday in the always-tough competition

Soccer takes two of three

Improving to 2-1-1 on the young season, the SCHS Lady Gamecock soccer team downed Vidalia by a 3-0 score Monday to claim their second consecutive victory at Kelly Memorial Stadium. 
Originally scheduled for Tuesday, March 2, the Red and White will host Washington County this March 4 afternoon at 5 before hosting area foe Calvary Day Tuesday, March 9, and traveling to St. Vincent’s on March 11. 
Sophomore Madyson Torres came up big in home victories over both AAAA South Effingham and AA Vidalia. 

Netters split with South Effingham

With a scheduled five matches in the next five days and seven in the next eight, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks improved to 3-0 on the season with a 4-1 win over South Effingham Feb. 25. 
For the boys tennis team, who have a similar schedule, the story has been slightly different as they dropped a 5-0 decision to the visiting Mustangs to fall to 1-2 on the season.

Remembering our greatest boys basketball team

The pages of the Sylvania Telephone sports section will not be quite as full today. Not when compared to the past two weeks anyway.  A busy two weeks of activity, possibly enough to keep a fire ant bed happy, but not nearly as nasty, has come to an end. 
There will be plenty more, just not for this week.
Baseball did not play until last night--nothing here.   Track doesn’t start until this afternoon -- nothing here. Basketball and wrestling are over -- nothing here. The news of the hiring of Greg Manior is not new anymore -- nothing here.

Boys tennis defeats JeffCo in subregion opener

With nearly picture opposite results, the SCHS Gamecock tennis team split its first two contests of the 2010 season, falling to Statesboro 5-0 in their lidlifter at the local courts on Monday before downing homestanding Jefferson County 4-1 in the 3AA-A opener in Louisville on Tuesday.
The Red and White will host South Effingham and Effingham on Thursday and Tuesday, March 2 respectively.  Both games are slated to start at 4:00

Soccer deadlocks with 1-1 tie

Making their first trip to Hinesville since 2005, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks came back with a 1-1 deadlock with AAA Liberty County’s Lady Panthers in the season lidlifter on Monday evening. The team is in action on Saturday in Savannah facing the Lady Hornets of Country day in the opening Area 3A/AA contest of the season.
Vidalia’s Lady Indians will be here on Monday and the Washington County Lady Golden Hawks are here on Tuesday. Both contests kickoff at 5:00 at Kelly Memorial Stadium.

Girls hoops topple East Laurens, fall to Vidalia

With a lineup composed totally of underclassmen, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks of Roy Cooper finished their 2009-10 campaign with a 12-12 record.  In the 3AA tournament played last week at Brewton Parker College in Mt. Vernon, the Red and White clipped the wings of the East Laurens Lady Falcons 54-45 in the opening round before falling to number one ranked Vidalia’s Lady Indians 75-50 in the second round. The loss left the team one win short of their seventh consecutive state playoff appearance.

Manior talks with his team

Newly named SCHS head football coach Greg Manior Monday addressed the Gamecock players who are expected to return to play for the 2010 season.
Manior told the crowd in the cafeteria that he his a “country.” He grew up on a dirt road and enjoyed the outdoors.
The coach, the first African-American be a head football coach at Screven County High School, informed the players he does not see “color.”
“Black, white, brown, it doesn’t matter,” Manior said. “The reason I am here is to win championships and teach each of you how to be a man.”

Girls tennis rolls

Getting off to another hot start, the SCHS Lady Gamecock tennis teams rolled to easy victories over AAAA Statesboro 5-0 on Monday at the local courts and 5-0 over subregion foe Jefferson County on Tuesday in Louisville. 
SCHS is hosting AAAA South Effingham this afternoon at 4 and will host Effingham County on Tuesday, also at 4 p.m.

With snow barely melted, spring sports fire away

With the largest snow in recent history barely a week melted away, the spring sports schedule of Screven County High School will be in full bloom this Monday, Feb. 22.
As Effingham County visits the SCHS baseball field, Statesboro visits the SCHS tennis courts and the Lady Gamecock soccer team visits Liberty County, the schedule is off and running.
Look for the track teams to begin Thursday-week, March 4, when Tattnall County, Savannah Country Day and Jenkins County come to visit.

Did I say we need the price of admission?

A quick Internet check of the prognostications of the weather for the next 10 days does not reveal any predictions of snow for this area. 
In fact, according to the expert visions of the meteorologist pundits on my particular site of choice, the next significant chance of rain (not snow) is Monday, Feb. 22, followed by an even greater chance on Tuesday, Feb. 23.
Uh oh! 
But then again one does not want to take long-term weather predictions to the bank for investment.   Not and expect a guaranteed return anyway. 

Roberts leads five wrestlers to sectionals

Saving their best for last, the SCHS Gamecock grapplers of Caleb White will send five team members to the Class AA State Sectionals in Jefferson Friday and Saturday after their performances at the Area Traditional Tournament this past weekend. 
Led by area champion Terrell Roberts in the 145 Class, the Roosters had a quality showing when it counted most.
“I want to thank my coaches,” Roberts said. “This will be my third time going to state and I am hopeful I will be able to win a state championship this year.”

Amazing what you can learn

Do you know what you can find if you just know where to look? 
It is truly amazing the things that are out there just waiting to be discovered, or maybe rediscovered. I am sure that I am not the first one to learn this or even to write it down. I claim no original thought here.
A couple of visits to a trophy case filled with “older” awards can lead to worlds of long lost treasures and interesting stories. Two such examples are to follow:

Gamecocks falter in OT

Portal’s visiting Panthers scored the final five points of the fifth period of the contest to take an extremely hard-earned 78-76 overtime victory over the hard-luck SCHS Gamecocks Saturday night in the regular season finale at the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium. 
Finishing at 9-15, the Roosters next will be in action Feb. 17 in the opening round of the 3AA tournament at Brewton Parker College in Mt. Vernon.

Lady Gamecocks hoops split final weekend’s games

On the heels of a disappointing trip to Eastman, the youthful SCHS Lady Gamecocks of Roy Cooper finished out their regular season at 11-11 with a resounding 50-25 victory over Portal’s Lady Panthers in the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium Saturday night.
The team next will be in action Feb. 17 at the Brewton Parker College Gym in the opening round of the 3AA Tournament.

Lonon logs rare triple-double

Using a third quarter offensive outburst, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks overcame the visiting Dublin Lady Irish by a 63-44 margin Saturday night to complete a two-game weekend sweep of 3AA opponents. 
Combined with their 55-34 win over Southeast Bulloch Friday night, the Red and White now stand at 10-10 with two regular season contests remaining.
Dodge County will host the team at 6 p.m. Friday in the season’s final 3AA crossover contest, while Portal will be at the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium Saturday for senior night and the season finale. 

Burns inks with SoCon’s Elon

One of the most versatile athletes on the 2009 Screven County Gamecock football team, Ed Burns has signed a letter of intent to continue his playing career with the Elon University Phoenix of the Southern Conference. 
The signing took place in the high school media center Wednesday afternoon.
