The Cedartown Bulldogs are having a good start to the season after taking a road win over the weekend and are just a few games away from getting to enjoy a holiday break to cap off the opening half of the winter season.

The Cedartown Lady Bulldogs remained perfect for the time being over the past week and heading into this one after taking a break following their season opener. They did so for good reason: a showdown is coming up this Saturday evening.

The Cedartown Middle School Bulldogs basketball programs played in a recent match up on home turf that went their way in a pair of boys and girls games against the Armuchee Middle Indians programs. 

When you give Cedartown running back Harlem Diamond the ball, and he’ll blast through an open hole with his spectacular speed (a 4.8 40). His velocity, coupled with a downhill, slashing style, makes him a game changer, which belies his young age.

The Rockmart Yellow Jackets have a lot of talent this year in their offense and defense, and 16 of those players have been honored by region coaches in 7-AA for putting up big numbers through the season.

The 10-and-under Cedartown Bulldogs football team took a B bracket District Championship after winning the Pokey Bowl in a 27-0 victory.

The Rockmart Yellow Jackets have their next test up ahead, and they’ll be back home this week for the second round of the Class AA state playoffs facing a team they’ve never played before.

ROCKMART — The Rockmart Yellow Jackets moved onto the next round of the Class AA playoffs with a 24-7 win over Temple, and will get to stay at home as they continue their perfect-season run.

When it comes time for football season in 2020, Rockmart will have a new slate of competition in a new classification. They are all teams well familiar to the Yellow Jackets over the year, and should provide new rivalries stretching northward to the Tennessee state line. 

Rockmart’s 10 U recreation football team won the A bracket League Championship on November 2. Brackets were determined by each team’s regular season record. The Jackets finished with an undefeated season and first place in the Farmers Bowl.
