Calhoun tops Coosa 67-59
The Coosa Eagles’ volleyball team is on a roll, and won three more matches Tuesday to improve its record to 12-1 on the season.
A year after coming up just short, the Rockmart Yellow Jackets refused to lose by not dropping a single set during the day and finishing with a 25-11, 25-21 win over Coosa in the finals of the Battle of the Counties Volleyball Tournament at Darlington on Saturday.
Trailing by two runs in the bottom of the fifth and final inning, the Coosa Eagles’ offense exploded for three runs to steal a 3-2 win over the Pepperell Lady Dragons in the Model Lady Devils Fall Classic on Friday at Alto Park.
On Saturday morning at the Huffman Center at Darlington, eight local high school volleyball teams will enter the building and when the smoke clears one will leave as the 2014 Battle of the Counties champion.
Local softball teams will see plenty of action this weekend in the Lady Devil Classic at Alto Park hosted by Model High School.
The Coosa Eagles are equipped with athleticism and speed at skill positions such as receiver and running back, size on the offensive line and aggression on the defensive line, but they’re lacking in one major area: focus.
