What else would I be leading with except for the obvious. Happy Mother’s Day!
My mother is far away in Maryland, but I will still adhere to family tradition and stay as far away from local restaurants as possible. I think claustrophobia might be genetic.
Lately though, I haven’t been a fan of Mother Nature. Like earlier in the spring season, she reared her ugly head Wednesday with rain. It wasn’t a Noah’s Ark type of a downpour, but it was enough to postpone Greenbrier baseball against South Forsyth for a day. The Greenbrier girls state soccer game just had a 15-minute delay.
It’s hard keeping students out of school for one day at the end of the year, but consecutive days makes it even more difficult. That probably affected South Forsyth more as Greenbrier baseball players had the opportunity to go to school for the first half of Wednesday and Thursday.
While Greenbrier remained alive in baseball, girls tennis and boys and girls soccer seasons came to an end Wednesday.
Harlem’s baseball team advanced to the second round of the AAA baseball playoffs before falling to Columbus in a doubleheader.
The Bulldogs finished with a 20-9 mark for the year.
The Evans baseball team’s run at a state title also came to a close when it was swept by Loganville, finishing the year 16-12.
The Greenbrier boys lacrosse team’s season came to a close with a first-round exit in the A-AAAA state tournament.
Monday, the Lakeside girls tennis team was within sniffing distance of the state final four before losing 3-2 to Starr’s Mill.
