SCHS loses GHSA appeal, or did it?

Last Wednesday at the home of the Georgia High School Association in Thomaston, SCHS lost its appeal to be moved from Region 3AA to Region 2AA before the GHSA Reclassification Committee. 
Or did it truly lose?
“I don’t agree with the decision,” said current athletic director Pat Collins. “Our efforts did help our overall program by having the GHSA enact by-law 4.22 which does not require crossover games (in all sports but football) for subdivided regions (the GHSA subdivided Region 3AA).”

Girls hoops split Holiday Classic weekend contests

Breaking open an even contest with big plays in the middle quarters, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks evened their record at 5-5 with a 48-35 win over Metter’s Lady Tigers Saturday night in the conclusion of the Gamecock Invitational Holiday Classic in the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium. 
In their opening contest the previous night, Roy Cooper’s lasses were unable to overcome nearly 30 turnovers in a 57-52 loss to AAA Burke County. The game saw the Lady Bears go on a 21-0 run during the second and third quarters at a point when SCHS led 19-12.

Gamecock hoopsters fall twice in tourney

Playing good enough to make both games very, very close, the SCHS Gamecocks still came up short in a pair of contests in their own Invitational Holiday Classic Friday and Saturday at the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium. 
The team will next be in action Dec. 28-29 when the boys participate in the Jenkins County Christmas Tournament facing Claxton and then host Jenkins County.

Wrestlers down Metter

Picking up their first dual win of the season, the SCHS Gamecock wrestlers downed visiting Metter 43-15 Dec. 16 at the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium. 
The team will next be in action on Jan. 6 when Southeast Bulloch comes here.
With the match starting at 171, junior Dandra Williams (189) picked up the first win with a pin.
Seniors Joe Brown (forfeit at 215) and Justin Jackson (11-10 at 285) followed. Jackson was a three period math that saw him overcome a 7-2 deficit and hang on in the waning seconds.

Revealed: ABC team here at last

In the recent past, the naming of the Sylvania Telephone’s All Area Football Team, i. e. the (A)ll (B)riar (C)reek Team, has beaten all other local publications to the punch when it came to naming its prestigious and much-anticipated  team. 
Realistically, of course, this list complies the equivalent of an area all-star team.
Unfortunately, the newspaper across the Ogeechee beat us to it this year. 

Girls hoops defeat Jefferson County, Bleckley County

On a night when both SCHS basketball teams returned the favor of a visiting loss to Jefferson County, it was the Lady Gamecocks who gained their measure of revenge first. 
Friday night at the Harold Lee Scott Gymnasium the Red and White coasted past the Lady Warriors by a 66-55 margin, undoing the 57-56 loss the previous Saturday. 
The Lady Gamecocks followed up their impressive subregion win with a very tough 41-39 Region 3AA crossover road win over the Lady Royals of Bleckley County on Saturday night. 

Boys avenge Jefferson County loss

Going on a 6-0 run in the final minute, the SCHS Gamecocks took the measure of subregion foe Jefferson County 80-75 Friday night avenging a loss to the Warriors the previous Saturday night in Louisville.
On Saturday, the team traveled to Cochran and suffered a very disappointing 68-61 loss in a Region 3AA crossover game with Bleckley County.  The Red and White now stand at 3-5 on the season.

New 3AA much ado about nothing, or is it?

Dec. 2 has come and gone. 
The much anticipated announcement of regions for the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 sports seasons was released by the GHSA as promised.  The verdict? 
Region 3AA remained unchanged. Our wait for something better, for football at least, was much ado about nothing.
Oh yeah, the GHSA did switch Toombs County from “their” subregion B to “our” subregion A. Well whoop de do!
Apparently, they also decided to use this reclassification for the normal two years instead of four years as originally stated.

Softball honors: Burns first team all state, Thompson second

Putting the cap on the greatest offensive season in the history of Lady Gamecock fast pitch softball, junior shortstop Tiffanie Burns was named First Team All-State by the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association (GACA) last week. Joining her as Second Team All-State was junior pitcher Marla Thompson.
“I really want to say congratulations to Tiffanie and Marla, this is the first time we have ever had a first or second teamer at the state level,” said Head Coach Billy Pollock.  “I also want to congratulate Sydnee (Weaver) and Rochelle (Shuman) for being honorable mention.”

According to SCHS Head Football Coach Pat Collins, “Players could be nominated by either their head coach or a coach of another team.  After nominations and discussion, votes were cast for players of the year, first team, and second team.”

Gamecocks fall in pair of shootouts

Continuing to have no problem scoring points, the SCHS Gamecocks still fell to Class A powerhouse Portal and 3AA-A foe Jefferson County in weekend action.

Boys hoops take two of three

Scoring points in bundles, the SCHS Gamecocks took two of three last week, their defense letting them down in their loss. 
Taking second in the Savannah Christian Tip Off Tournament before handling AAAA Effingham County Saturday night, the Red and White will travel to Portal Friday night and Jefferson County Saturday night as they continue their season.
The trip to Louisville to face Jeffco’s Warriors, along with a trip to Swainsboro Dec. 9 will test the 3AA-A prospects of the Gamecocks at a very early position in the season.

Cheerleaders claim fourth in Class AA

Putting together yet another solid performance, the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheerleaders came home again from Columbus with a fourth place finish at the GHSA Class AA cheerleading finals. 
With their Saturday morning routine, the squad notched its second consecutive top-four season.
“It is very easy to get overwhelmed by the size of the civic center and the number of people in attendance,” said coach Mary Helen Harrison. “Our girls kept their composure and performed a great routine; their best of the season.”
