Prep roundup: Big blast by Mason leads Lions to win



• Alicia Cole earned medalist honors as Northwest Whitfield’s girls topped Heritage in a nine-hole match at WindStone Golf Club in Ringgold.

Cole’s 7-over-par 43 led the way for the Lady Bruins, who shot a 134 to beat Heritage’s 158, while Marlee Bingham (44) and Emilee McKinney (47) also scored. Ringgold also participated in the competition, but only had two golfers, one short of the number required for a team score in the match.

• Abbi Tate’s 17-over-par 53 led Coahulla Creek as the Lady Colts tied Gordon Central in a three-team, nine-hole match at Nob North Golf Course in Cohutta.

The Lady Colts, who also got a scoring round from Presley Whitfield (58), finished with a 111, as did Gordon Central. Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe followed with a 126.

Coahulla Creek’s boys finished second, shooting a 187 that was bested by Gordon Central’s 183 but better than LFO’s 220.

Ian Conway shot a 44 to lead the Colts, who also received scoring rounds from Austin Cole (46), Brannon Wilson (48) and Alec Longmire (49).

In junior varsity boys competition against Gordon Central, Walt Douglas shot a 44 to lead the Colts (90), who also received a scoring round from David Manis (46). Gordon Central shot a 126.


Dalton girls 2, Gilmer 0: Deanna Marquez scored twice in the second half — on an assist from Alondra Salaises in the 46th minute and an assist from Yanet Hernandez in the 75th minute — to lead the Lady Catamounts (5-5) to the win in Ellijay.

Dalton coach Tony Carlson said the Lady Cats took 39 shots on goal — although he said many were right at Gilmer’s keeper — while the Lady Bobcats had no shots on goal. Carlson said Dalton keeper Maria Medina did make several good defensive plays for the Lady Cats.

Murray County boys 4, Armuchee 1: Juanito Bautista scored one goal and set up another to lead Murray County (10-2-1, 10-1 Region 7-2A) to victory in Chatsworth.

Alberto Soto, Jose Ruiz and Joel Lopez also had goals for Murray County, which led 2-0 at halftime — Armuchee converted a penalty kick to make it 2-1 before the home team pulled away again — while Alejandro Ramirez had an assist and keeper Roberto Zuniga notched seven saves. Murray County had 15 shots on goal.

Murray County girls 2, Armuchee 1: The Lady Indians (7-6, 7-4 Region 7-2A) won in overtime, with Cheyenne Sancho scoring her second goal of the game with four minutes left in the second period of the extra time.

Her first goal came in the first half and was assisted by Raven Henry. Kelsey Pack had 16 saves for Murray County.

Southeast boys 2, East Coweta 2: Erik Salaises scored with 4.6 seconds left to help the Raiders (5-2-1) tie their Class 6A opponents on the road.

Salaises scored Southeast’s first goal as well, with Jaime Arenas credited with the assist. Abel Mendiola made 12 saves as the Raiders’ goalkeeper.

Whitefield Academy girls 6, Christian Heritage 0: The Lady Lions (0-7, 0-4 Sub-region 6A-A) ended the game with 10 players on the field due to injuries, coach Adam Bolin said.

East Coweta girls 10, Southeast 0: The Lady Raiders (4-6), who trailed 5-0 at halftime, lost via mercy rule.

Calhoun girls 10, Morris Innovative 0: The Lady Tigers fell to 1-13 overall and 1-12 in Region 7-2A.

Calhoun boys 7, Morris Innovative 0: The Tigers fell to 7-7 overall and 6-7 in Region 7-2A.

  • 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.

  • s-CHS kid 1 .jpg Dindoffer mentally focused on basketball

    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.

    Replicating the start of last year’s Class 4A state title match, Dalton High School’s boys soccer team needed just four minutes to score its first goal at Southeast Whitfield on Friday.
    The Catamounts scored five more — and again defended their crown of dominance in the sport.
