A Look Ahead: Showcase event hits diamond
You could be a graduating senior yet to find a home. Or you could be an upcoming senior looking to get a head start on impressing college baseball coaches and scouts.
Maybe you’re even younger and just want to get your name out there.
A Look Ahead: Diamond is last chance for Georgia
So far this summer, it has been a bitter pill to swallow for the Georgia All-Stars in the annual Stump on Sports Tennessee-Georgia All-Star Classics.
The players from the Volunteer state have won four out of five contests in the games, which will conclude this week with baseball on Tuesday and softball on Wednesday.
The results have been even more surprising after Saturday’s Tennessee sweep of both the boys and girls soccer games.
A Look Ahead: School’s out with lots to do
The 8-year-old version of me started counting down the days to summer vacation once April Fools’ Day showed its shadow.
Swimming pools, summer camps, video games, Little League baseball games, longer days and anything else that drives a parent insane.

A Look Ahead: The dominant sport
This couldn’t happen in any other sport. But in this area, soccer is becoming THE sport.
For the past week and a half, three high school teams in Whitfield County have steamrolled through competition, save one close win for each. Dalton, Northwest Whitfield and Southeast Whitfield each has won three games since May 3 and now are in the Class 3A state tournament semifinals.
A Look Ahead: Postseason shifts up to higher gear
One year later, and the names remain the same for the area’s four teams still alive on the pitch in the state playoffs.
Last season’s high school boys soccer state tournaments saw a quartet of local teams making a run through the first round. This season, those four are singing the same song and dancing the same dance.
A Look Ahead: Golf kicks off a busy prep week
Five local high school girls golf teams will compete today in the Lady Conasauga Cup, an annual charity tournament which will be played this year at Indian Trace Golf Course in Chatsworth.
Dalton, Murray County, North Murray, Northwest Whitfield and Southeast Whitfield will compete in the event, which begins at 2 p.m.
A Look Ahead: Alumni out to have fun, raise money
Bo Headden is a 1983 graduate of Northwest Whitfield High School and the oldest person on the Bruins alumni football team, which has been practicing in preparation for an upcoming game.
Even with current seniors playing on the team, and an age gap of around three decades, Headden still sees a bond is there.
What's Going On: Region play points the way to state
As we move into the second half of April, the focus for many of the local high schools’ spring athletics shifts to the postseason.
Whether it is golf, tennis or track and field, there are tons of region events scheduled for this week which marks the beginning of the march to state.
What's Going On: Local teams squaring off on the pitch
You’re going to hear and read a lot this week about some gigantic, season-defining, high school baseball series between a couple rival schools from around this area.
I’m not really sure what that’s all about. So for the next 481 words, I’ll spare you any mention of it.
Instead, soccer dominates the space below.
