Fighting tooth and nail for every point, every game and every match was the theme at Coosa High on Thursday night, and that mentality ensured some highly competitive matches among region volleyball opponents.

Through wind and rain, sun and heat, Armuchee only needed four innings to defeat the visiting Darlington Lady Tigers in a 13-1 blowout. In fact, Hannah Murray and the Lady Indians had pitched a shutout up until the bottom of the fourth, when Darlington pitcher Emily Swafford cranked a solo home run out of left field to finally put the Lady Tigers on the board.
Rome High School took home first place in the boys’ and girls’ races at Ridge Ferry Park on Tuesday afternoon. Despite not having an individual champion in either race, the Wolves’ depth proved enough to win the meet. Rome placed five boys in the top 11 runners to score 31 points and five girls in the top eight to earn 26 points.
