Prep roundup: Big blast by Mason leads Lions to win

Christian Heritage School didn’t let Tre Mason’s grand slam go to waste.

Mason’s fourth-inning four-RBI home run gave the Lions the lead for good in a 13-6 varsity baseball victory against visiting North Cobb Christian on Tuesday.

With the Lions (10-7, 7-4 Sub-region 6A-A) trailing 3-2, Mason went deep and his team never looked back.

Mason also had another hit and another RBI in the victory, while Spencer Robbins went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, Chase Tidwell was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs and Jake Stokes added a two-run single.

Brady Souther pitched 1 2/3 innings, allowing three runs off three hits and four walks. Robbins earned the win in relief, throwing 4 1/3 innings and allowing three runs. He gave up three walks and six hits while striking out five.

Adairsville 5, North Murray 1: The Mountaineers gave up four runs with two outs in the bottom of the first and couldn’t find their offensive rhythm while falling on the road in a Region 5-3A contest.

Brandon Brock was 2-for-4 with a double, and Aaron Granger drove in North Murray’s only run in the third to cut Adairsville’s lead to 4-1.

Granger took the loss on the mound, going four innings and allowing five hits and two walks while striking out seven for the Mountaineers (7-9, 4-3).

Sonoraville 7, Coahulla Creek 5: The Colts (6-11, 3-5 Region 5-3A) lost their second straight game after the Phoenix scored two runs in the eighth.

Tucker Sheram was 3-for-4, while Zack Glines, Braiden Jacobs and Blake Phillips each went 2-for-4. Phillips had a double and an RBI, while Glines had a double. Scout Plott had an RBI double.

Jacobs pitched seven innings, allowing five runs (three earned) on nine hits and two walks while striking out four. Phillips pitched an inning and allowed two runs (one earned) off a hit and a walk while striking out one.

Calhoun 11, Murray County 0: Noah Price had the lone hit for the Indians (0-12, 0-10 Region 7-2A) in the road loss.

• Southeast Whitfield did not report results from Tuesday’s scheduled home game against Heritage-Catoosa by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

  • 7on7 championship game6.jpg Bringing in the best

    When high school football coaches look for events to take their teams to during the summer, they are looking for three things — top competition, organization and hospitality.
    For The Daily Citizen’s Southeastern 7-on-7 Championship, the Dalton community and local business leaders take care of the latter. The tournament officials work tirelessly to provide the organization. And the two combined assure the top competition will show up.

  • NW softball state championship file 1 mlh.jpg In the lineup again

    When Northwest Whitfield repeated as the Georgia High School Association Class 4A softball state champion last fall, that appeared to be the last time the majority of the Lady Bruins’ senior class would be teammates on the diamond.
    Now, thanks to the Stump on Sports All-Star Softball Classic, five of those six seniors will reunite to play together one more time.

  • Isabel Salinas 5 mlh.jpg All-Area Spring Female Team: Salinas hoping things keep getting better and better with age

    Isabel Salinas’ freshman season for Southeast Whitfield High School’s track and field team wasn’t up to her standards, and she really isn’t sure why it ended up that way in 2013. It could have been her injuries. It could have been not being in proper shape.
    One thing Salinas, nicknamed “Izzy” by friends and coaches, does know is that her sophomore year went a lot better.

  • poty seth.jpg All-Area Baseball Team and Player of the Year

    As a freshman at Northwest Whitfield High School, Seth Pierce came out of nowhere and was as dominant a pitcher as the area had. Finishing his “rookie” season with the Bruins, the left-handed Pierce led the area with nine victories — he also had one save — and showed overpowering dominance with a 9-3 record and 89 strikeouts in 73 1/3 innings. He finished his first season on the hill in Tunnel Hill with a 1.71 ERA while allowing 61 hits and 23 walks. Those numbers were also recorded against competition in a higher classification as the Bruins were playing Class 4A ball when the state had just five classifications. His performance earned him honors as 2012 The Daily Citizen All-Area Baseball Player of the Year.

    All Sam Dindoffer wanted was to be a kid and play basketball. But sometimes your body doesn’t cooperate.
    For the past four years, Sam and his family have faced one challenge after another since he first experienced a brain seizure at the age of 11. Since then, he has undergone four brain surgeries, a full-range of drug treatment options, many nights filled with wonder and fear, and trips back and forth to doctors’ offices from Dalton to Atlanta.

  • cchs v st pius boys tennis3.jpg Can’t win ’em all: Colts fall to St. Pius X

    VARNELL — Just as in other matches this season, there were handshakes and hugs awaiting the members of Coahulla Creek High School’s boys tennis team as they walked off the court Monday.
    Unfortunately for the Colts, this time they were of the comforting rather than the congratulating variety.

  • Creek girls fall short at Oconee Co.

    In 2013, Coahulla Creek’s girls high school tennis team saw their season end on the road at Oconee County in the first round of the Class 3A state tournament.
    Friday in the second round of this year’s tournament, the Lady Warriors again were the team to end the Coahulla Creek season, taking a 3-0 win in Watkinsville. But coach Matt Facey hopes the second-round loss means the Lady Colts will advance at least to the state quarterfinals next season.
