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.

    Northwest Whitfield High School’s baseball team has been successful this season. But at the same time, no one said success would be easy.
    Several times this year, the Bruins have fallen behind early in the first few innings before answering with a rally to ensure the wins keep coming. On Friday, that formula delivered a Sub-region 7B-4A championship for the second year in a row.

    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.

    Dalton High School baseball coach Shane Ramsey only needed one word to sum up what he expects from this week’s three-game series with Sub-region 7B-4A foe and intracounty rival Northwest Whitfield.
    “Intensity,” he said. “If you can’t get up for this series, then why are you playing?”

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Prep roundup: SE offense keeps foot on throttle

    As long as Southeast Whitfield High School’s baseball team continues to hit the ball and score runs the way it has so far this season, it really won’t matter what the defense does.
    Coach Brad Lofton still likes how the Raiders’ fielding is improving.

    Neither Dalton High School baseball coach Shane Ramsey nor North Murray coach David Redmond has had much reason to complain about their offensive production this season.
    Defense is another matter.
