Cartersville wins gold b
The weather cleared just enough Friday evening to allow three local high school football teams to complete their spring practice with a traditional team scrimmage.
The games don’t start for another three months, but this is one of Gordon Powers’ favorite times of the year as Model’s football coach.
Monday saw the state’s top high school golfers take to the links one final time this season, and the experience was not lost on the Model boys’ team.
On the course, a golfer is the sole competitor, playing a game that is far more mental than anything. And as local teams prepare for the GHSA state tournaments in or near Augusta on Monday, finding a comfort zone is important.
This weekend, it’s the boys’ turn.
Senior leadership is the backbone of success for most teams, and boys’ basketball in Floyd County followed that narrative this season.
Darlington and Model girls’ basketball teams played each other four times this past season. Chances are, fans’ attentions were drawn to one of two players who were doing everything they could for their team.
Only a few races and events remain in the prep track and field season, and this weekend is the girls’ final chance to shine.
