Lumpkin County edges Parkview in Area 6 meet
Parkview gave 2012 riflery state champion Lumpkin County a stern test at the Area 6 championship last week. The Panthers' 1131 points put them in second place behind Lumpkin County, which compiled a team score of 1152. North Forsyth, Gainesville, Riverside Military Academy and Buford rounded out the six squads who had previously qualified for the area shoot-off.

Lumpkin County boasts the area's top three state qualifiers in Heather Johnson, Morgan Tritt and Dakota Spivey. Buford's Kim Gilmer has also booked her spot in the state meet.


Woodward Academy, which captured three consecutive riflery state championships from 2002 to 2004, shot its way to a fifth-place performance at the Area 5 championship earlier this month. East Coweta, which is looking like a serious contender to capture its first state title since 2000, took home top honors in Area 5 ahead Luella, Stockbridge and Union Grove.

Host Bulldogs beat defending champs

Forsyth Central's gymnastics team started the 2014 season on Feb. 28 with a win at the Forsyth County Gymnastics Meet at Dobbs Creek with 106.65 total points. The Bulldogs edged defending state champion Lambert, which finished with 102.9 points. South Forsyth (91.85) placed third, and West Forsyth (90.5) placed fourth.


Forsyth Central finished first in every event, and won them all with underclassmen. Freshman Emily Flint placed first in vault (9.1) and the all around (35.25). Freshman MacKenzie Miller earned first on beam (9.45) and sophomore Maecie Winter placed first on bars (9.3) and floor routine (9.2).

senior Mary Katherine Ballow finished first in all around at the House of Troy invitational last weekend. Ballow scored a 36.85 and the host Trojans placed fourth out of the 16 teams. Carrollton scored an impressive second-place finish in the event and tallied a 108.275 team score.


Former Alexander standout Kelsie Brooks is having a solid freshman season at Eastern Michigan. Brooks scored a 9.7 on bars in the final meet before the Mid-American Conference Championships. Brooks and the Eagles will host the MAC championships March 22.


Colquitt County freshman Evelyn Fagan qualified for Area on vault, beam and floor at the Jones County meet. Fagan scored a 9 on vault 8.5 on beam and 8.6 on floor. Fagan missed qualifying for all around by .10.


North Oconee is in its first year of competition and topped First Presbyterian Day, West Forsyth and Madison County in its first-ever meet last month. Since then, the Titans have seen Natalie Babin qualify for area on floor and bars and Mary Alex qualify for area on floor with a perfect score.
