No time to waste ... too many good teams ... not enough room in the paper ... must get them all in!
The Augusta Prep girls soccer team kept its season alive Tuesday with a 4-0 win over Mount Pisgah in the first round of the Georgia Independent Schools Association Class AAA state tournament. Lady Cavalier leading scorer Monica Ploetzke put two goals in the net, while Stephanie Brown and Kelley Toney added one more each.
Lakeside's boys and girls golf teams are heading to the state tournament after winning the Region 2-AAAA Golf Tournament in Jesup, Ga., on Monday. Lakeside's Brian Carter placed second individually with 71, while teammate Charlie Cason followed with 72. Lakeside's Taylor Adkins took top medalist honors in the girls competition with 91. Evans' girls finished second to also earn a trip to state competition.
Greenbrier's boys soccer team breezed through the first round of the Georgia High Schools Association Class AAAA state tournament Wednesday with an 8-0 win over Americus-Sumter. Pieter James and Charlie Kupar each scored to improve the Wolfpack to 18-1 on the year. Greenbrier's second-round game will be at home against Woodward Academy at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Lakeside is still alive in boys soccer after the fourth-seeded Panthers earned a 3-2 upset over No. 1 seed Ware County. Joe Hastings, Michael Combs and Kyle Turner all scored for the Panthers to improve their record to 9-10. Lakeside's second-round game is Tuesday at McIntosh in Peachtree City, Ga.
That's not all. There are more tennis, golf, soccer, track and baseball teams heading to the state playoffs at Harlem, Augusta Christian, Augusta Prep, Greenbrier, Lakeside and Evans. So many successful teams makes my job tougher, but it's a great problem to have.
