Christian Heritage 13, Trion 7: The Lions (12-9, 9-6 Sub-region 6A-A) scored 11 runs in the third inning and locked up the No. 3 seed from their half of the region.

Christian Heritage allowed five runs in the first but more than doubled that in the third to take a 12-6 lead. Tre Mason had a monster day, going 4-for-5 with five RBIs, while Ian Robbins also went 4-for-5.

Michael McKinney went 2-for-4 with two RBIs, while Brady Souther was 2-for-2 with two RBIs and Christian Heritage had 15 hits total.

Spencer Robbins earned the win on the mound, pitching 4 1/3 innings. He allowed six runs (four earned) off 10 hits with two walks and five strikeouts. McKinney pitched 2 2/3 innings, allowed one unearned run off two hits and one walk while striking out two.

“Today was a perfect example of getting down and turning it around,” Lions coach Noah Stokes said. “It’s easy in those situations to feel like it’s not your day. Then we made them feel that way.

“We didn’t play perfectly in the field in the first inning and that led to some of their runs, but we were able to hit the ball and came back to get a big region win.”

Christian Heritage will play Sub-region 6B’s No. 3 seed in a region crossover matchup on Friday, Stokes said, but whether or not the Lions make the state playoffs is determined by their power rating.

The top 16 teams in each power rating poll — one for public and another for private — make their respective brackets. Christian Heritage was ninth in the most recent poll on April 16.

Ridgeland 9, Southeast Whitfield 5: Blake Foster went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run plus an RBI double, but it wasn’t enough to give the Raiders (6-17, 3-12 Sub-region 7B-4A) a late-season sweep of the sub-region series.

Tyler Hale pitched five innings for Southeast, allowing all the runs — six earned — off 10 hits while walking four and striking out three. Foster pitched two innings and allowed just one hit while striking out one.

At the plate, Hale went 2-for-4 with two doubles, while Jose Vargas added a two-run single for the Raiders, who beat Ridgeland twice last week.

The Raiders close their season at home today in a Region 7-4A crossover doubleheader versus Gilmer at 5 p.m.

  • 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.
