Time for high school housekeeping

Posted: May 4, 2013 - 11:04pm

High school postseason is going fast and furious, so it’s time to get caught up with what might have slipped through the cracks or just not made it onto today’s sports page.

On April 24, the Augusta Christian boys won the South Carolina Independent School Association Region 1-AAA track championship. Leading the way was Grant Newman, who won region titles in the triple jump and long jump. David Hall won the 2 mile, Bryson Ashmore won the 110 meter hurdles and Spencer Lamunion won the 800.

The Lady Lions finished in fourth with Anna Motes winning the triple jump and the long jump.

The Evans Knights (12-5-0) made a splash in the Class AAAAA state soccer tournament’s first round when they upset Richmond Hill 1-0 on Wednesday. The Knights, a No. 3 seed, will play the top-ranked McIntosh squad on Wednesday, May 8.

The Lady Knights (6-9) didn’t fare as well in their first-round match, losing to Glynn Academy 5-1 on Tuesday.

The tumultuous season for the Greenbrier boys soccer team (10-5-3) came to a close Wednesday night when they fell to Glynn Academy 3-2 in the state’s first round.

In Georgia Independent Schools Association soccer, both Augusta Prep soccer teams had their seasons end just short of being able to compete for the state championship.

Tuesday, the Lady Cavaliers, who were the state runners-up in 2012, took on an undefeated Stratford (17-0) in the semifinals and lost 8-4, finishing the season with a 13-3 mark.

On Wednesday, the Cavaliers (8-8) dropped their match 2-1 to Mt. De Sales.

In tennis, the Lady Cavaliers battled through a rainy Monday, beating Loganville Christian before losing to Westfield 3-2 in the GISA semifinals. The boys team lost a 3-0 match to Heritage in the GISA quarterfinals.
