Chris Whitfield: Take Dalton in Region 7’s big Cat fight

(Continued)

Northwest Whitfield at Pickens (don’t call us county): Northwest fans keep pointing to their 25-13 win over Pickens earlier this season as a badge of honor. Granted, a win over Pickens is nice, but the Dragons basically gave the game away with six turnovers. If my team gets six turnovers and I score just 25 points, I think I would be a little disappointed.

Things have changed for both teams, and I think that Northwest’s offense is a lot better than it was at the beginning of the year. Pickens still has a habit of hurting itself early in the game. If that happens this week, then it will have to be Northwest turning the ball over in order for the Dragons to have a chance.

Who’s up for a trip to Carrollton?

Whit’s Pick: Northwest Whitfield 31, Pickens 25

Christian Heritage at Fellowship Christian: This is the game that haunts the Guru from earlier this year. I’m not going to say this too loudly for fear of getting hit upside the head with a seat cushion, but Fellowship Christian let me down earlier this year. And in the process, I take full credit for giving Christian Heritage the season they have. Had it not been for my motivational energy, my constant badgering of coach Preston Poag and my uncanny ability to wearing clothing to Christian Heritage practices which matches their opponents each week, the Lions are 5-5 again.

So, in other words, Christian Heritage fans ... you’re welcome.

Whit’s Pick: Christian Heritage 52, Fellowship Christian 27

n North Murray (don’t call us county) at Gordon (don’t call us county) Central: The Mountaineers roll to the win, and then have to wait it out.

Whit’s Pick: North Murray 55, Gordon Central 10

Southeast Whitfield at Cass: “If” Southeast had been able to take care of business when they had the chance earlier this season against a Ridgeland team they should have played better against, the Raiders would be playing for a playoff shot. Instead they are playing for a .500 record. It isn’t great, boys, but it is a long way from 2-8. That’s improvement.

Whit’s Pick: Southeast Whitfield 31, Cass 27

Murray (do call us) County at Coosa: It should be really interesting to see what kind of crop has been planted this year in Murray County.

Whit’s Pick: Coosa 42, Murray County 8

  • 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.

  • Junior golf: Hicks able to hang for final round

  • 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.

  • Good day sends Dalton boys to state golf tourney

    With a spot in the Class 4A state tournament on the line, Dalton High School’s golf team put together one of its best rounds this season on a course coach Hunter Johnston said was as demanding as any the Catamounts had played this year.

    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.
