Prep Roundup: Powerful performance keeps Mountaineers in running

(Continued)

Track and field

North Murray senior Brady Swilling went 6 feet, 6 inches as he took first in high jump competition at the Region 5-3A meet at Gordon Central.

Swilling won a region high jump title for the second straight season — last year’s win came in Region 7-2A — and also took third place in the shot put (distance unavailable) to advance to the Class 3A A sectional on Saturday, April 27, at Woodward Academy.

Fellow Mountaineers senior Isaac Pacheco, who won the 1,600 title Tuesday in the first day of action at the meet, doubled up on titles by winning the 3,200 in 10 minutes, 14 seconds on Thursday. North Murray’s boys finished fourth in the eight-team meet behind Cartersville, Gordon Central and Sonoraville.

Advancing for the Lady Mountaineers was Megan Pittman (discus, third, distance unavailable).

Coahulla Creek did not report results from the meet by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

Soccer

Murray County boys 5, Coosa 2: Jose Ruiz’s hat trick led the way for the Indians (11-3-1, 11-2 Region 7-2A) as they rolled on the road.

Alberto Soto and Juanito Bautista each added a goal for Murray County, which was up 3-0 at halftime and led 4-0 before Coosa scored. Humberto Alvarez was solid in goal, recording 10 saves, and Coosa’s second score was an own goal by Murray County.

Indians coach Marco Burgueno said Manny Bautista played well on defense.

Murray County girls 4, Coosa 1: Cheyenne Sancho had a hat trick and assisted on another goal, while Nayeli Jacobo contributed a goal and an assist to lead the Lady Indians (8-7, 8-5 Region 7-2A) as they won in Rome.

Kelsey Pack made three saves in goal, while Jennifer Moran and Elizbeth Lara had strong defensive efforts, Lady Indians coach Mandy Ledford said.

Coahulla Creek boys 5, LFO 1: The host Colts led 1-0 at halftime before turning the second half into a rout.

Pedro Garcia scored twice, while Eddie Serrato set up two goals and scored one and Ronnie Vargas and Sadoth Fraire each added a goal and an assist for Coahulla Creek (11-4-1, 9-3 Region 5-3A). Missael Fraire made five saves in goal for the Colts, who took 19 shots.

LFO girls 2, Coahulla Creek 0: The Lady Colts (5-11, 4-8 Region 5-3A) gave their visitors a good challenge despite the 14-1 mark the Lady Warriors boasted entering the match but came up short. The game was scoreless at halftime and Coahulla Creek keeper Melissa Cabrera finished with 11 saves.

Christian Heritage girls 1, North Cobb Christian 0 (OT): Savannah Dixon scored in the second overtime period for the Lady Lions (2-7-1), while Sarah Massengale recorded the shutout in goal.

Dade County boys 4, Morris Innovative 3: Dade scored the first two goals of the night and the Tigers were unable to overcome the deficit, falling on the road.

Felipe Barrientos, Eduardo Padilla and Pedro Ulloa all scored for Morris Innovative (7-8, 6-8 Region 7-2A).

Dade County girls 8, Morris Innovative 0: The Lady Tigers fell to 1-14 overall and 1-13 in the region.

  • 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.

  • poty seth.jpg All-Area Baseball Team and Player of the Year

    As a freshman at Northwest Whitfield High School, Seth Pierce came out of nowhere and was as dominant a pitcher as the area had. Finishing his “rookie” season with the Bruins, the left-handed Pierce led the area with nine victories — he also had one save — and showed overpowering dominance with a 9-3 record and 89 strikeouts in 73 1/3 innings. He finished his first season on the hill in Tunnel Hill with a 1.71 ERA while allowing 61 hits and 23 walks. Those numbers were also recorded against competition in a higher classification as the Bruins were playing Class 4A ball when the state had just five classifications. His performance earned him honors as 2012 The Daily Citizen All-Area Baseball Player of the 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.
