Volunteer State grabs three wins

Tennessee wrapped up nearly two weeks of athletic competitions by sweeping a softball doubleheader and baseball game Wednesday night, concluding this year’s Stump on Sports Tennessee-Georgia All-Star Classic series.

The Classics pit recent high school graduates from the two states against one another in a battle for border bragging rights.

Tennessee held Georgia to two runs over a pair of six-inning softball games at Frost Stadium in Chattanooga, while Tennessee edged Georgia 5-4 in baseball at Ridgeland High School.

In softball, Tennessee won the first game 4-2. In the nightcap, former Walker Valley High School pitcher Sidney Hooper allowed a leadoff single and then sat down the next 18 Georgia batters to capture Classic MVP honors in a 2-0 win.

For Georgia, former Northwest Whitfield standout pitcher Emily Boyd, an Ole Miss signee, was tagged for the loss in the opener, going four innings while allowing seven hits and three runs (two earned). She struck out six. Dalton’s Allie Blackwood pitched the final two innings, allowing two hits and one earned run while striking out two.

Bledsoe County’s Lydia Ritchie was the winning pitcher in the first game, allowing two runs and striking out 10. She was named Tennessee’s Player of the Games.

Southeast Whitfield’s Tavi Parris drew a walk for the Georgia squad, while Dalton’s Carson Hagin and Northwest’s Mykeah Johnson also competed in the doubleheader. Heritage-Catoosa shortstop Savannah Goldsmith was Georgia’s Player of the Games after contributing a pair of hits, a run and several defensive gems in the field.

Tennessee pushed its lead to 25-7 in the softball series’ 16-year history.

In baseball, Classic MVP Spencer Mossberg of Silverdale Baptist went 2-for-3 with a pair of stolen bases to lead Tennessee to the one-run win. McEachern’s Dalton Geekie, who struck out six in two innings of work, was the Georgia Player of the Game.

Sequatchie County’s Dakota Hudson was Tennessee’s Player of the Game after striking out six in three innings.

Northwest’s Brady Middleton had a hit for Georgia, while Dalton’s Brandon Dale and Coahulla Creek’s Scout Plott also participated.

Gordon Lee’s Bryce Bailey won the home run derby before the game.

Tennessee now leads the baseball series 11-1.

The Volunteer State won all of this year’s Classic competitions — football, boys and girls basketball and boys and girls soccer were also played — with the exception of the boy’s basketball game, which Georgia won in overtime.

  • 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.
