Prep Roundup: A little bit of momentum

Dalton wins fourth straight on diamond

(Continued)

Golf

• Coahulla Creek 182, Ringgold 183:
Ringgold’s John Espy took medalist honors with an even-par 36, but Coahulla Creek used its consistency across the lineup to take a one-stroke win in the dual match.

The four golfers for the Colts were all within four strokes of each other as Austin Cole led the Colts with a 43 and was followed by David Manis (45), Ian Conway (47) and Alex Longmire (47).

Tennis

• Southeast Whitfield girls 5, Ridgeland 0:
In Rossville, the Lady Raiders (1-2, 1-1 Sub-region 7B-4A) got wins from the No. 1 doubles team of Ally Stanley and Julie Cole, 6-0, 6-0, and No. 1 singles player Daisy Maya, 6-1, 5-0 (retired).

Ridgeland forfeited the rest of the courts.

• Southeast boys 5, Ridgeland 0: Also on the road, the Raiders (1-2, 1-1 Sub-region 7B-4A) swept the singles competition and took forfeit victories in doubles. Winners for Southeast at singles were No. 1 Alejandro Luna, 6-2, 5-0 (retired), No. 2 Alexis Beccera, 6-0, 6-0, and No. 3 Jorge Ruedas, 6-0, 6-0.

• Murray County girls singles tennis players Greta Lazzarotto and Gabbie Bordelon each won pro-set matches against visiting Armuchee before play was suspended by the weather. Lazzarotto won 8-1, while Bordelon won 8-0.

Murray County’s boys lost all three matches that were completed, losing 3-0. The match between the two Region 7-2A foes did not count in the region standings, and the girls match will not be completed.

Postponements

• Weather washed out the remainder of the area prep sports schedule from Thursday.

In baseball, Coahulla Creek at Calhoun, Gordon Central at Southeast Whitfield and Ridgeland at Murray County were all wiped off the books by rain and sleet. All are non-region games, and no makeup dates have been determined.

On the tennis courts, play was suspended between Coahulla Creek and North Murray. The matches are scheduled to be completed today in Chatsworth. Dalton’s Sub-region 7B-4A matches at Heritage-Catoosa were suspended as well and are scheduled to be completed on Monday.

In track and field, Murray County and North Murray were scheduled to compete at Gilmer, but the meet was not held and won’t be made up.

In golf, Christian Heritage’s match at LaFayette was postponed but no makeup date has been determined. Also, Coahulla Creek was scheduled to host LaFayette, Pickens and Ringgold, but calls to coach Chip Fleming were not returned by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

  • 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.

    “There is just one more place left to win,” Dalton coach Nancy Hallsworth said. “They have the time ahead of them to do it.”

    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.”

    Replicating the start of last year’s Class 4A state title match, Dalton High School’s boys soccer team needed just four minutes to score its first goal at Southeast Whitfield on Friday.

  • Prep Roundup: Dalton golf teams in form at Fields Ferry

    Even in wet and muddy conditions, both the Dalton High School boys and girls golf teams are sharpening their games at the right time.
    With the Region 7-4A tournament scheduled in two weeks, both the Catamounts and the Lady Cats finished second during play at the Fields Ferry Invitational in Calhoun on Monday. Despite the soggy conditions, Dalton’s Jacob Brown tied for medalist honors with a 2-over par 74 to lead the Cats to a 313 combined score in the six-play, four-score format. Dalton finished three strokes behind tournament winner LaFayette.
