Blessed Trinity girls rolling, Brookwood boys beat Parkview

 

 

 

The Blessed Trinity girls, who have won five straight state championships, appear to be back in business following an impressive stretch from last Friday through this Tuesday. The Titans recovered from their only loss of the season earlier

this month against Kennesaw Mountain with victories over West Laurens, Wheeler, Brookstone, Starr's Mill and St. Pius. They won the first three of those matches via 5-0 sweeps before beating Starr's Mill 3-1 and edging St. Pius 3-2 in a showdown of Class AAA's two most recent winners. St. Pius prevailed in 2012 when Blessed Trinity was still in Class AA before the Titans took the title last year in Class AAA.

 

Blessed Trinity's departure opened the door for Westminster's girls to emerge victorious last season in Class AA. The Wildcats look poised to go back-to-back thanks to recent wins over region rivals Lovett and Greater Atlanta Christian. A productive week saw Westminster beat Greater Atlanta Christian 3-1 one day after squeaking past Starr's Mill 3-2. Alex Marshall and Gabi Barros won the deciding match at No. 2 doubles to lead the Wildcats past Starr's Mill.              

 

On the boys' side, a showdown between Region 8-AAAAAA foes took place on Tuesday. Brookwood remained undefeated for its 2014 campaign at 14-0 by blanking Parkview 5-0. Brandon Mills, Will George and Zach Jennings won singles matches for the Broncos, while David Brown and Will McWhirt prevailed in a doubles slot along with Ryan Pridgeon and Anthony Prorcelli. 

 

Parkview had previously improved to 11-2 on the season with a 5-0 sweep of Lakeside-DeKalb last week. The Panthers were led in singles Dustin Bowie, Brendan Taliaferro and Andrew Joel. On the doubles court, Calvin Gratz won with Daniel Bracken and Nicholas Button got the job done with Jonathan Su.              

 

The Lovett boys bounced back from a setback against Westminster earlier this month by defeating Kennesaw Mountain 4-1 on Wednesday. Lovett's girls, also playing at home, were not quite as fortunate as they went down to the Mustangs by the same 4-1 score.

 

 


GYMNASTICS NOTEBOOK

Buford keeps rolling, DeKalb action heats up
 

 

Buford has arguably been the state's most impressive team this season. The Wolves opened up the year with a win in their own invitational and traveled to Lassiter

Photo by LHSGymnastics
last weekend (March 14) for the House of Troy Invitational where they placed first out of 15 teams. Two Wolves tied for first on the beam with scores of 9.5 and Logan Nugent scored a 9.75 on floor with her outstanding routine. Buford is off this weekend but will be back in action on March 28 in a multiple meet at Gymnastix Training Center in Buford.

 

Lassiter, which finished fourth in the House of Troy Invitational, visits Lovett on Tuesday for its next meet. Lassiter senior Mary Katherine Ballow finished first in all around at the House of Troy Invitational last weekend and as a result became a favorite for the state title this season after finishing ninth in state all-around last year. 

 

 

DeKalb County will provide plenty of action this weekend with 11 teams in competition this Friday. Redan, M.L. King, McNair, Lithonia, Arabia Mountain, Lakeside DeKalb, Chamblee, Dunwoody, Southwest DeKalb, Tucker and Cedar Grove will compete at two separate sites (Arabia Mountain and Dunwoody). There will be one more meet following Friday (March 25) before the DeKalb County meet scheduled for April 3.
