Think you know how each team is going to do from week to week? Got a good system going for deciding a favorite in a game? Then it just might be time to put that talent to some good use.

The Rockmart Lady Jackets have nothing but good things to celebrate over the past two weeks of early season play. They’ve come away not only with opening wins against big teams, but remain undefeated in region play so far as well.

Cedartown softball has continued to strattle .500 in the first season of the Eddie Gambrell era. In all fairness, the young Lady Bulldogs have played some very tough teams.

There’s plenty of competition out there for the Cedartown Bulldogs to face, even without having to play against region foes. Whether it be the big game coming up next week on August 23 when the Bulldogs face Rockmart, or heading up to the Dalton area to face Southeast Whitfield.

Every player on the sidelines of the Cedartown Bulldogs is valuable to the whole of the team, but from year to year certain players get opportunities to stand out over others as their talent grows through their careers on the gridiron.

In just a few more days, the Cedartown Bulldogs football season will be in full swing. And if all goes as planned, this year’s campaign will be a season of triumphs, redemption, and sweet revenge.

The story of the Rockmart Yellow Jackets of 2018 reads like one of a fairy tale. As 2019 gets underway next week with the start of the regular season, it is the mission of the Jackets to write a new story, and one with a happy ending.

After waiting over two months upon winning the GHSA Class AA tennis state championship title, the Jackets tennis team was presented with their rings Friday night.

Rockmart got a 30-13 scrimmage win over Bremen at last week’s home game, which marked an opportunity for the community to enjoy the first Friday Night Lights of the season.

The road is long for any team to make it to a state title game, but Cedartown took a preseason step in that direction with a 21-0 scrimmage win over Morrow.

The Rockmart Yellow Jackets are ready to come back for another run at the big game in Atlanta, and got an early start with their first practice in pads coming in the dark of night. 

Football fans, there’s a chance to get in on the local action. Except for one small caveat: the time of day might not be convenient for those who have to get up and go to work in the morning.

Time is running out to sign up for the city of Rockmart’s recreational sports teams, and those looking to play soccer, become a football cheerleader, or compete in football are urged to visit 815 College St. by August 3 between 12 through 5 p.m.

When most middle school students are hitting the beach or mountains, members of the Cedartown Middle School softball team stayed in town this summer working on drills and fundamentals ahead of the start of their season in August.
