Final Games To Feature
BY DREW BRANTLEY
Commerce will face three tough opponents in its final five games
of the season.
After facing the number one team in Class A Wednesday in Greater
Atlanta Christian, the Tigers will face two region teams in the
fight for a playoff spot.
Banks County (16-3) is in the hunt for one of Region 8-A North's
two playoff berths.
Next Thursday, Commerce will travel to Buford, who controls its
own destiny for the second spot in 8-A South.
Commerce picked up a subregion win last Friday with a seventh-inning
12-11 win over Providence.
Jefferson bested Commerce last Wednesday 14-4.
Riverside will come to Commerce Friday for another subregion
"We got some tough games coming up with GAC and Banks,"
coach David Cash said. "Hopefully we can build on the win
over Providence. We're still trying to find some pitching. We're
trying to get a lot of people playing time at different positions.
The game with Banks County has been hounded by the rain. Orginally
scheduled for March 29, the game was moved to Tuesday. More wet
weather pushed the game to Thursday.
A thumb injury may claim the rest of the season for senior infielder
"By the time he's able to play again, we'll probably be
at the end of the season," Cash said.
Dane Cotrell hit two grand slams and scored the winning run for
the Tigers over Providence. Cottrell walked to lead off the seventh.
A hit by Brody Bearden and a Providence error allowed Cotrell
Charlie Epps had three hits. Cottrell drove in eight and scored
Matt Owensby came on in relief in the bottom of the sixth, recording
two strikeouts. He picked up the win.
The Dragons exploded for a 14-4 win over rival Commerce. Corey
Hill went the distance, allowing only two earned runs on six
hits through five innings.
CHS Tennis Team To Face Wesleyan
Commerce's tennis team will wrap up the
the regular season with a home match next Tuesday agaisnst Wesleyan.
Heather Stockton, Janna Morris, Aaron Talbot and John Harrison
will also represent the team April 13-14 at the Region 8-A singles
tournament at Lakeview.
The teams were swept in their matches last week against Providence
and Franklin County.
8-A To Return 10 Schools; Only Four Play
Commerce will play three region football
games next season after the realignment by the Georgia High School
Commerce will remain in Region 8-A with football schools Jefferson,
Buford and Wesleyan. Towns County had been classified in Class
A, but opted to move up to Region 8-AA with its neighboring counties
Union and White.
Brenau, Lakeview, Providence, Rabun Gap, Tallulah Falls, and
Woody Gap are also in the region, but do not play football.
All four of the 8-A football schools will advance to the state
The new alignment has Commerce playing seven non-region games.
Contracts for football games can be signed after the GHSA executive
committee approves the region alignment at its meeting April
Commerce coach Steve Savage mentioned Franklin County, Athens
Academy, Morgan County, Gainesville, Lincoln County and Forsyth
Central as possible opponents to fill out the schedule. Commerce
will not play area teams Banks County and Madison County.
Eight of the 10 schools have played competitive schedules in
other sports like basketball and baseball. Commerce baseball
coach David Cash said it was likely that the teams would play
a region schedule next year.
The suspense has been taken out of the football season for several
Class A football teams.
Two other regions in Class A will have four teams. Each region
will still send four teams to the state playoffs. Regions 1-A
and 5-A will also have four teams.
Regions 2-A, 3-A and 7-A each share the most football-playing
schools with eight teams apiece.
The 75 schools in Class A are divided, with 41 in the north and
34 in the south.
In football, a total of 47 teams play football - 21 in the north
and 26 in the south. With 32 teams advancing to the state football
playoffs, only 15 Class A schools will miss the postseason.
The rest of the current Region 8-A teams will be moving up to
Class AA next year.
Banks County, Dawson County, Greater Atlanta Christian, Rabun
County, Riverside Military Academy, Towns County and Union County
make up most of the new Region 8-AA. They will be joined by East
Hall, Lumpkin County, White County and the new Barrow County
Madison County will remain in Region 8-AAA next year. They have
been grouped with Eastside, Elbert County, Franklin County, Hart
County, Loganville, Monroe Area, Stephens County, Winder-Barrow
and Jackson County.
Jackson County has petitioned the GHSA to move to Region 7-AA.
That would place them in a group with schools in Hall County

BCHS star will make switch to college
BY DREW BRANTLEY
A four-year starter at shortstop with a .503 career batting average.
That's not even a complete sentence, but it might just say all
that needs to be said about Banks County's Michelle Snipes.
Add in her help in guiding the Leopards to consecutive postseason
berths in her junior and senior seasons, and it is little wonder
that she will get a chance to keep playing softball in college.
Snipes signed the first softball scholarship from Banks County
High School last week to play for Emmanuel College in Franklin
Springs. Snipes' four-year totals at BCHS easily allured college
She finished her career with a .503 batting average, 32 home
runs, 131 RBIs and 124 runs scored. She added 31 doubles and
Her junior year, the Leopards finished second in the region.
They went on to win one of the four state-qualifying spots at
the sectional tournament for the first time since 1992.
This year, the team advanced to the region tournament, finishing
The only question on her slow-pitch high school resume was whether
she can switch to the fast-pitch world of college softball.
Her workout with the Emmanuel team this spring answered that
"She saw 12 pitches and had seven hits," Banks County
softball coach Mike Gordon said. "I showed her how to adjust
her swing to hit fast-pitch before she went down there. I couldn't
believe that she learned it so quickly."
The other side of the ball was never a question.
"She was my starting shortstop for four years. I know she
can play defense," Gordon said. "A lot of colleges
have said they like to get their middle infielders from slow-pitch
because they know they have the experience fielding the ball."
Snipes was also recruited by LaGrange College, but opted for
Emmanuel. But less travel time to home games is no complaint
for her biggest fans.
"We're excited about it," said her mother Vicki Snipes.
"We're glad she has the opportunity to go further."
While her athletic road will continue, she has not forgotten
the ones that have helped her be successful.
"When I look back, I really benefited from being in (former
Banks County) coach Warren Standridge's weight class," Snipes
said. "He helped me through a sports injury when I was a
freshman. He showed me how to focus on getting stronger and fit.
He spent extra time with me, that allowed me to step up my play."
Adding strength to her arsenal, she included experience by playing
on the traveling team, the CATS. Her traveling coach also caught
on to the potential Snipes possesses.
"She has the ability to play anywhere," CATS coach
Bob Roller said. "She's got good upper body strength and
excellent speed. She's a smart player. She can make the transition
from slow-pitch to fast-pitch with no problem because she's an
athlete. That's why she got attention from colleges - because
she's an athlete."
While on the CATS team, Snipes played on the squad that won the
state ASA championship and advanced to the national tournament.
The team finished with a 41-9 record that year.
"We would start practicing (for the CATS) in late February,"
Snipes said. "Then we would play in tournament all around
That schedule took her back into the high school season, which
ran into October, allowing her to play eight months out of the
year. All the pieces came together with her earning best offensive
player honors as a sophomore and junior, as well as co-Miss Softball
honors her senior year.
Downing Union breaks
up subregion lead
Leopards play in Blairsville Thurs.
BY DREW BRANTLEY
Banks County High School's baseball team controls its own postseason
destiny to a point.
Dawson County, Union County and Banks County are all in position
to claim one of the two playoff spots. Banks County will play
Union County Friday in Blairsville.
If Banks County wins that game, it will be tied with Dawson County
for first place. Under Region 8-A rules, if two teams finish
tied for the top two spots, a coin flip determines the seeding.
If three teams are tied for the top two spots, a coin flip gives
one team a berth, while the other two play for the other.
If the Leopards lose Friday, they would need help from other
teams against the other two leading teams.
Banks County's game with Lakeview, which was to have been played
this Wednesday, has been postponed.
Banks County will get a chance to finish its season series this
Thursday with Commerce. The Leopards took the win in the teams'
first meeting last month in Homer.
The second game was scheduled for March 29, but was rescheduled
to Tuesday due to rain. However, more rain earlier in the week
scratched Tuesday's matchup. The game is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
Weather has not cooperated with Banks County-Commerce games this
The first baseball meeting this year was played on a wet field
after a downpour earlier that day.
Both regular season basketball matchups this year between the
two rivals were also canceled due to winter weather.
Banks County split its season series with Dawson County last
week, dropping a 6-4 loss to the Tigers.
Dawson County scored first and never trailed. Banks County scored
one run in the fourth inning to tie the game at 4-4. But the
Tigers scored one in the sixth and one on the seventh to take
Joseph Whitlock started the game on the mound. Justin Smith finished
out in relief for the Leopards. Clint Angel hit a home run to

Diamond Dragons win
then lose upper hand in region
BY TIM THOMAS
The past week was an up-and-down one for the Jefferson baseball
team, literally. Earlier in the week, the Dragons moved into
sole posession of second place in subregion 8-A south after Providence
surprised the Buford Wolves, 5-2. A loss to Wesleyan Friday dropped
Jefferson back into a tie with the Wolves. The top two teams
from the subregion qualify for postseason play.
Jefferson has a full slate of games this week, beginning with
non-region Johnson Thursday. From there, the must-win phase of
the season begins, as Buford hosts the Dragons Friday and Providence
comes calling Saturday. Jefferson will play at Riverside Monday,
and a visit from Greater Atlanta Christian will close out the
regular season next Thursday.
"We didn't do too well against Wesleyan," said head
coach Chuck Cook. "I guess we went on spring break a couple
of hours early." Christopher Wheaton started on the mound,
going five innings and giving up no runs on four hits. Kyle Potts
gave up one earned run in relief in the 2-1 eight-inning loss.
After five innings, Jefferson led 1-0, and the two teams had
combined for only seven hits. The Wolves picked up an unearned
run to tie in the sixth, and loaded the bases with no outs in
The Dragon defense registered two outs before Potts got ahead
2-2 in the count. Potts threw two pitches that seemed to be on
the mark. Both were called balls, and Wesleyan picked up the
win on an eighth-inning, bases-loaded walk.
"We were kind of in the driver's seat to be in the playoffs,"
Cook said. "We still have every opportunity in the world
to be there, but now we've got to do it ourselves." If Jefferson
can win against Buford, Providence and Wesleyan this week, and
Buford fails to upset GAC, the Dragons and Wolves will likely
meet in a one-game playoff to determine which team moves on to
Earlier last week, the Dragons exploded for a 14-4 win over rival
Commerce. Corey Hill went the distance, allowing only two earned
runs on six hits through five innings. Josh Nabors, Clint Bryson
and Shane Wilburn led at the plate with three hits each, and
Hill and Ryan Gurley each belted home runs. Potts, Jeremy Love
and Jon Veldhuis all hit safely for Jefferson.

Varsity track teams from Jefferson blasted Athens Academy last
week. The boys' team racked up a 102-28 decision, while the girls
toasted the Lady Spartans, 86-39.
Up next for the Dragons is a home meet next Wednesday against
Commerce and Oglethorpe County. The Jefferson Relays are scheduled
for next Saturday, beginning at 10 a.m.

also took first place, as did the number two 400-meter relay
team (Gooch, Cole, Green, Blake Gooch).
Jason Martin, who earned a new personal best in the shot put
last week, did the same this week in the discus, with a first-place
throw of 123 feet, four inches. Martin also finished second with
David Boring set a new personal record with his winning time
of 2:06.84 in the 800 meters.
Brian Cole reached a personal best with his second-place finish
in the 1600 meters. Cole crossed the line just 0.3 seconds behind
Kelly. Nathan Briscoe also put up a new personal mark in the
discus throw, at 101' 9".
Winning events for the Lady Dragons were: Molly Cleveland (long
jump, triple jump), Heather Green (high jump), Stacey Anderson
(100 meters, 200 meters) and Audrey Johnson (100-meter hurdles,
300-meter hurdles). Green, Johnson, Emily Tompkins and Michelle
Boring combined to win the 1600-meter relay, as did Boring, Green,
Anderson and Robin Roper in the 400-meter relay.
Birdette leads Panthers
BY TIM THOMAS
With their season nearing its midpoint, the Jackson County track
teams continue to look stronger and faster with each week. The
Panthers will next face Dacula and Dawson County Tuesday, and
Madison County, Oconee County and Stephens County next Thursday.
Last week, Tim Birdette led the boys' team to a tri-meet win
against Stephens County and Madison County. The Panthers scored
80 points, followed by Stephens with 56.5 and Madison at 33.5
Birdette took top honors in three events: long jump (20' 4"),
400 meters (0:53.57) and 200 meters (0:23.7). Casey Berryman
had the long shot put, at 40 feet, five inches. Chuck Kubiak
continued to throw the discus well, taking first at 129' 6.5".
John Hardie grabbed the top spot in the pole vault, with a vault
of 10 feet, one-half inch. Adam Hughes took first in the 800
meters, finishing in two minutes, 18 seconds, and Kelly Parr
crossed the line first in the 3200 meters, with a time of 11:14.
The 1600-meter relay team of Hughes, Justin Lott, William Butler
and Chris Kubiak finished ahead of the pack in that event.
Carly Parr finished first in the 3200 meters (12:51) and 800
meters (2:31). Sara Freeland was first in the 1600 meters, and
Carla Rainwater first in the 100-meter hurdles (0:18.47) for
the Lady Panthers, who finished second behind Stephens County.
Berryman was also fourth in the discus throw, while Chuck Kubiak
finished second in the shot put. Chris Kubiak was third in the
long jump and second in the 300-meter hurdles, and Carly Parr
took third in the girls' high jump. Hardie finished fourth in
the 300-meter hurdles and third in the 110 meter hurdles, and
Hughes was third in the triple jump.

Panthers at top of region
BY TIM THOMAS
C.J. Weaver led the Jackson County boys' tennis team to a 3-2
win Thursday over Madison County. The win places the Panthers
in a three-way tie for first place in their region, with the
Red Raiders and West Hall. Jackson County's previously postponed
match against Jefferson has been rescheduled for April 12. The
team is off for spring break this week.
"C.J. played a tremendous mental match," said Panther
head coach Jimmy Williams of Weaver's win. "He didn't get
shaken up, even though the other guy beat him last year."
Weaver rallied to win the number-one singles match 4-6/6-3/6-3.
Stephen Rosser, whom Williams says is always very businesslike
in his play, won an easy 6-2/6-0 decision in the second singles
slot. Will Koontz and Tommy Siphavong finished the scoring for
Jackson County, with a 4-6/6-3/6-3 doubles win.
to petition for move to 7-AAA
BY TIM THOMAS
Jackson County Comprehensive High School athletic director and
head football coach Greg Lowe said this week that he will file
an official request with the Georgia High School Association
to move Jackson County from region 8-AAA and into region 7-AAA.
The presentation is scheduled for Tuesday. Lowe said a ruling
will likely come the same day.
"I think Jackson County has a longer history with some of
the teams in region 7-AAA than with those in 8-AAA," Lowe
said, speaking at an athletic event late last week. "The
driving distance would be about the same."
Under the GHSA's tentative alignment, region 7-AAA consists of
eight teams, while there are 10 in region 8-AAA. If Jackson County's
request is granted, there will be nine schools in each region.
The GHSA's initial region 7-AAA is made up of Fannin County,
Forsyth Central, Gainesville, Gilmer County, Johnson, North Forsyth,
Pickens County and South Forsyth.
Jackson County, Eastside, Elbert County, Franklin County, Hart
County, Stephens County, Madison County, Monroe Area, Winder-Barrow
and Loganville make up region 8-AAA.
Regions will be finalized during a meeting of the GHSA Executive
Committe April 17 and 18, and coaches must submit completed football
schedules by May 1.
Raiders beat Brookwood, Central Gwinnett
MCHS now 14-6 on season
BY BEN MUNRO
AND ZACH MITCHAM
The Madison County Red Raiders downed Central Gwinnett in a pitcher's
duel and Brookwood in a slugfest this past week to improve to
14-6 on the season.
The Raiders will face North Gwinnett Thursday in a game postponed
twice this week due to bad weather. The squads will hit the field
at 5:30 p.m. in Suwanee. Madison County will then take on Habersham
Central at home Friday at 6 p.m., before traveling to Jackson
County Monday at 5:55 p.m.
Raider coach Charlie Griffeth said his team played better this
"We're hitting better," said Griffeth, whose team is
a game behind sub-region leader Stephens County. "And we're
doing some of the little things right."
MADISON CO. 11
With the use of a nine-run third inning outburst, Madison County
nabbed their 14th win of the year at home Saturday, topping Brookwood
in an 11-8 slugfest.
After Brookwood grabbed a 2-0 edge with RBI singles in the first
and second innings, Madison County erupted in the third inning,
bringing 13 hitters to the plate, getting the nine runs on six
The Raiders loaded the bases in the beginning of the third inning
with back-to-back singles from Nick Mattox and Bo Williamson
and a walk to Kurt Cooper. Madison County then picked up their
first run of the game as Andy Coile walked to force in a run
followed by Gillespie who then tied the game at two with an RBI
single to left field. With the bases still full, the Raiders
got their third run of the contest after Jeremie Strickland was
hit by a pitch and then made the contest 4-2 after Jamaris Mattox
picked up a bunt hit on a suicide squeeze. Chad Youngblood then
walked to force in another run, making it 5-2 and Nick Mattox
laid down yet another Raider bunt hit to bring home Strickland
from third. Madison County then took a six-run edge as Williamson
ripped a double to left field to score two more runs. The squad
picked up their ninth run as N. Mattox came home on a balk.
Brookwood cut into Madison County's seven-run lead in the fourth
as they got a two-run shot from Mike Royal followed by Robert
Collier, who tagged a solo homer to left field, making the score
Brookwood then worked the lead down to three runs as they used
the long ball again in the fifth inning with Daniel South going
deep to left field, making the score 9-6.
Madison County answered with a homer of their own in the bottom
half of the inning as Daniel Smith tattooed a shot to left field.
With Joseph Hardigree on first and Cooper on second, Smith had
seemingly given the Raiders a 12-6 edge with the blast.
However, Hardigree apparently missed home plate as he came in,
nullifying the last two runs, giving the Raiders only a 10-6
The ball continued to fly out of the ball park in the sixth inning
as Joel Fincher smacked a solo shot to left field, cutting the
lead to three runs.
Madison County picked up an insurance run in the bottom of the
sixth as Strickland led the inning off with a double off the
top of the center field fence, went to third on a wild pitch
and then came home off a sacrifice fly by J. Mattox.
Brookwood added a final run in the seventh as Kevin Buldger came
home from third on a Raider error.
Starter Dustin Dinsmore had a shaky day but picked up the win
nevertheless, working three and two-thirds innings, surrendering
seven hits, five runs - four earned - and one walk, while striking
Williamson worked the rest of the way, pitching three and a third
innings, giving up three runs - two earned - four hits and a
MADISON CO. 2
CENTRAL GWINNETT 1
The conditions may have been wet and cold last Wednesday, but
the pitchers were red hot.
Madison County's 2-1 win over Central Gwinnett in Danielsville
featured stellar pitching performances from the Raiders' Scott
Tolbert and the Black Knights' southpaw Mickey Westphal.
The two pitchers baffled batters for most of the evening, allowing
just four hits and six walks and two hit batters, while striking
out 21 between them. Tolbert allowed two hits, three walks and
a hit batter, while fanning 10 in seven innings - including five
straight strikeouts to end the game. Westphal gave up two hits,
three walks and a hit batter, while striking out 11 in six innings.
Tolbert allowed just one hit in the first five innings, but Central
Gwinnett got on the scoreboard first, scoring a run on a one-out
sixth inning single. The Black Knights threatened to take a bigger
lead that inning, loading the bases with an intentional walk,
but Tolbert fanned the next two batters to get out of the jam.
Westphal carried a no-hitter into the bottom of the sixth. But
with one on and one out, Kurt Cooper broke up the no-hit bid,
smashing a hard single to right field. Cooper and Nick Mattox,
who was hit by a pitch, stood on second and third as catcher
Andy Coile ripped a double into right centerfield to score both
runners and give the Raiders a 2-1 edge.
Tolbert finished off the game, blazing fastballs by three straight
batters in the top of the seventh.
MCHS boys' soccer
squad blasts by Stephens 6-0
BY ZACH MITCHAM
Paced by another outstanding performance from senior star Manny
Trujillo, the Madison County Raiders trounced Stephens County
6-0 Friday night on the road.
Trujillo scored four goals and had an assist.
"He (Trujillo) was really on Friday night," said Raider
coach Sam Rafal. "He did a nice job distributing the ball
when the opportunity was elsewhere and going for the the goal
when that was the best option."
Also getting in on the scoring action were Donnie Hatcher and
Tim Costyn, who each had a goal and an assist. Gabe Zorbanos,
Brandall Casstevens and Alan Alvarez each had an assist.
The Raiders, who led 3-0 at the half, played a solid game against
a Stephens County squad that was much improved, said Rafal, whose
team scored goals in clusters near the end of both halves.
"It was a very physical game, but we didn't let that take
us out of our game," said Rafal. "We had great intensity
in the defensive third. We won the midfield and were able to
put passes together in the attacking third and finish our runs
with shots on goal - all of the things you like to see."
Rafal praised the play of a number of players in Friday night's
win. He noted that goalie Joe Zorbanos "kept (Stephens)
from getting back into the game early in the second half."
Rafal said David Harrison showed "strong leadership at sweeper."
Freshman Joseph Jones held Stephens County's most potent offensive
threat in check.
"Our freshman (Jones) completely shut down a college-bound
senior," said Rafal.
The coach said Tim Costyn was "strong on right wing,"
making some "nice runs" and "opening up the middle
for Manny." Rafal said Alan Alvarez had "another very
strong game up front."
"He did a nice job finding a balance between ball distribution,
playmaking and dribbling," said Rafal.
The coach said Hatcher, who moved from stopper to right center
midfielder, has "made us a two-way threat by improving our
attack and recovering on defense."
"He (Hatcher) is the prototypical midfielder," said
Raider Levi Dykes, who suffered a severely busted lip Friday,
requiring about 10 stitches, is also playing well, according
to the coach.
"He continues to win ball and he is really strong taking
the ball out of the air in midfield," said Rafal, who added
that this year's senior class is as strong as any ever at Madison
County. "We may have five college- bound players before
all is said and done."
The Raiders will play their final home game of the season Friday
night at 7:15 p.m. The junior varsity squad, which tied Stephens
County 2-2 Thursday, will take the field at 5:30 p.m. The Raiders
will close out the season with two road games: a Tuesday matchup
with Central Gwinnett at 6 p.m. and a Friday, April 14 game at
Dacula at 7 p.m.
