The Clear Creek Middle School honored their Track and Field team with the end of season banquet earlier in the week at the middle school cafeteria. Coach Tommy Jones spoke on what a great season it was for the track and field program. Several of the athletes were competing in track and field for the first time and each athlete grew so much over the course of the season. During the 2018 season several of the middle school Bobcats broke their personal best including Jocelyn Birko who broke the school record in the Shot Put.

Each athlete that competed for the Bobcats of Clear Creek received a t-shirt for their outstanding work ethic and dedication tho the team.
This weeks Super Star Swag honor goes to freshman #42 Austin Damon. Austin earned his first high school varsity game touchdown against the Pickens Dragons last week. He is a up-and-comer for the Bobcats and sure we will see alot more of him in the future.
Congratulations Austin for earning your first touchdown and first Super Star Swag Player of the Week.

The Gilmer Ladycats hosted Heritage Generals last Tuesday for Senior Night in their final region match-up. Pickens came into the game 12-1, while Heritage was 10-2. The game had a lot of implications for the upcoming region playoffs. The Gilmer Ladycats start region play on Friday, Oct. 2 at home. Gilmer plays a double-header at 5:00 pm. and 7:00 pm.
Gilmer honored their Seniors before Tuesday nights game with a small ceremony. #7 Chancey Davis, #24 Savannah Chalfant, #2 Baylee Wimpey, #4 McKenzie Chambers and #19 Kaylee Deyton walked the bases with their families as the announcer read a small bio and a heartfelt early farewell to the team and coach’s.
Heritage came into the game ranked by MaxPreps Freeman rankings as #7 nationally and #4 in Georgia. Gilmer ranked 70th in the nation handed one of only three losses on the year to Heritage. Tied for first place in region 7-AAAA, both teams had one thing one their minds, winning.
Gilmer Senior, Savannah Chalfant got the start against Heritage. Chalfant was strong early on retiring the Generals three-up-three-down in the first, but that was short lived. The Ladycats gave up one run in the top of the second and two runs, one by way of homerun, in the fourth. Gilmer down by three was able to shut the Generals down till the seventh, but was unable to get their bats going. The Generals brought three home in the top of the seventh, bringing the score to, 6-0. The Ladycats however, did make a run for it in the seventh. Their bats finally came alive, scoring one run, but was not enough as the Generals closed things out, 6-1. Gilmer was definitely not their usual team. Gilmer’s pitching was solid, but the Generals bats were hot. “It’s like their snake bit” one spectator said.
