CHS tennis wins two

But weather sidelines most local teams

Christian Heritage School’s varsity tennis teams closed their regular season with a pair of victories against Gordon Lee on Thursday afternoon in Chickamauga.

Both teams finished the schedule 5-4 and fifth in Sub-region 6A-A. The Lions and Lady Lions will play at 4 p.m. Monday at Darlington, which finished fourth in both the boys and girls sub-region standings. The winner will earn a spot in the Region 6-A tournament, which begins Tuesday at Darlington.

Against Gordon Lee, the Lions picked up a 5-0 win behind singles victories from No. 1 Phillip McClure, 6-4, 6-1, No. 2 Evan Townsend, 6-1, 6-1, and No. 3 Devin Sanders, 6-0, 6-2, plus doubles wins from No. 1 Samuel Pippin and Brian Pierce, 6-0, 6-2, and No. 2 Austin Lowe and Harrison Kranzlein, who accepted a forfeit.

The Lady Lions beat Gordon Lee 3-0, with the top two singles matches not completed because of inclement weather that struck in the third set. Sarah Pippin won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3 singles, while in doubles No. 1 Erin Grace White and Kacie Griggs won 4-6, 6-1, 6-0, and No. 2 Courtney Pirkle and Sydney White won 6-3, 6-4

• The threat of inclement weather postponed or canceled most local high school varsity sports events scheduled for Thursday.

In baseball, Model at Murray County was postponed.

In golf, Dalton’s girls were scheduled to face Southeast Whitfield at Indian Trace, but that nine-hole match was postponed and likely won’t be rescheduled. Murray County’s boys and girls matches with Gordon Lee at Battlefield Golf Club in Ringgold were rescheduled for 4 p.m. next Thursday.

Murray County’s girls and boys soccer teams were scheduled to host Morris Innovative, but those matches were rescheduled for 5 and 7 p.m. today.

In tennis, boys and girls matches pitting Southeast versus Northwest Whitfield and North Murray versus Heritage-Catoosa were canceled and won’t be made up with region tournaments beginning next week.

In track and field, the following competitions were canceled: host Coahulla Creek’s meet with Gordon Lee, Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe and Ringgold; North Murray’s meet at Gilmer; and Murray County’s meet at Northwest. Dalton’s meet at Gordon Central was postponed and may be rescheduled, but no makeup date has been set.

When local prep athletic events are canceled, postponed or rescheduled for any reason, coaches are urged to notify The Daily Citizen in advance of the originally scheduled time by calling (706) 272-7742, 272-7732 or 272-7734. Notifications may also be sent to sports@daltoncitizen.com.

  • 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.

  • s-CCHS softball 8.jpg On a mission

    The local girls who visited the Dominican Republic last week on a mission trip through Score International tell a matching story.
    Toward the end of a visit to Pasitos de Jesus, a girls orphanage in Boca Chica, the children began singing the Gospel song “Mighty to Save” to their visitors.
    “It sent chills down your spine,” said Kala Franks, a rising senior at Coahulla Creek High School. “I felt they were ministering to me rather than us ministering to them.”

  • 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.

    Before there were any attempts in the high jump finals Thursday at the Class 3A boys track and field state high school meet at Jefferson High School’s Memorial Stadium, there was some trash talking.
    Coahulla Creek assistant coach Eric Bishop said one of the competitors approached top-seeded Josh Foxx, a Coahulla Creek junior, and told Foxx he was about to run into a wolf.

    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.

    TUNNEL HILL — When you consider all of the hours of practice, all of the years of gymnastics training and the physical demands of being a cheerleader, the last word you would expect to hear an athlete use to describe herself is “lazy.”

  • 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.
