Prep roundup: Bruins second at Creek Duals

Using a variety of wrestlers at each weight class, Northwest Whitfield High School’s team didn’t suffer from not having a set lineup on Wednesday at the Coahulla Creek Thanksgiving Duals in Varnell.

The Bruins went 4-1 to finish in second place in the event, beating Gordon Lee, Armuchee, Dalton and Coahulla Creek before falling in the championship to LaFayette. It was the second of three events for the Bruins this week. After wrestling in the Etowah Duals on Tuesday and at Coahulla Creek on Wednesday, Northwest travels to Heritage-Catoosa Thanksgiving Duals on Saturday. Dalton, Morris Innovative and Southeast Whitfield will join the Bruins in Ringgold.

“We are just getting mat time, and I am just beating them kids up,” Northwest coach Allen Tucker said. “We will have to recover after this week, but we have to get mat time. We will let them have turkey (Thursday), practice (today) and get up and go to Heritage on Saturday. Some of these kids will have had 15 matches before it is all over this week.”

Northwest started the day with a 39-36 win over Gordon Lee with Bryan Gembe getting a pin in the last match of the victory at 113 pounds. Needing a pin or a major decision to give Northwest the win, Gembe got the pin to push the Bruins over the top. In the 48-30 win over Dalton, Tucker said Jacob Swan had the best outing of the match. Swan overcame a 10-2 deficit to win 12-10 at 106.

The Bruins beat Armuchee 52-21, and took an easy 56-18 win over the hosts. In the win over the Colts, Aaron Scott, a first-year wrestler who only recently got into the wrestling room after finishing up the football season, got a pin in his first match at 160.

Dalton went 3-2 on the day, winning over Coahulla Creek twice and Armuchee, but falling to the Bruins and Gordon Lee. Coach Michael Keefe reported that Werner Braun was a standout at 170.

Coahulla Creek and Murray County did not report results before 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.

  • 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.
