“This weekend, we had a tough loss with (starting centerfielder) Cricket Wyatt out with a knee injury,” Lady Raiders coach Kelley Barton said. “She was a huge leader for us. I think we learned a lot this week.”

In Southeast’s three games from Friday, the team lost 7-5 to Armuchee and 6-1 to Chattooga but routed Coosa 12-0.

Despite losing to Cedartown, first-year coach Stacey Parker called it “the best game” his team has played so far.

“We went 2-4, and we were hoping to go even there,” Parker said. “I think that we grew up a lot this weekend. What I was really excited about is that we only made two errors in the last four games.”

Kylee Harris drove in the only run while Swinford pitched six innings, allowed four hits and struck out nine.

  • Wrestler of the year 2014 2 mlh.jpg All-Area Wrestling Team and Wrestler of the Year: Winning another title was the only goal for Wheeler

    When Dalton High School wrestler Sidney Wheeler won a state title for the first time two years ago as a sophomore, he admitted he became a little complacent about what it would take to replicate the feat — perhaps not noticeably so to most observers, but enough to take success for granted. Wheeler believed it a matter of course that he would win state again, and he thought the second title would simply be the middle child in a high school three-peat.
