TYLER QUEEN UPDATE

Relieved QB to begin recovery without surgery

 

 

 

Tyler Queen and his father/North Cobb head coach Shane Queen visited Pensacola, Fla., on Monday to meet with Auburn team doctor Dr. James Andrews. The Auburn commitment had

damaged his UCL pitching for North Cobb's baseball team on March 14, and the family was waiting to see if Tyler would require Tommy John surgery to fix the injury. 

 

After driving more than 340 miles Monday morning and waiting more than a week after the injury, the medical staff determined that surgery would not be necessary for the partial tear.

 

According to the elder Queen, Tyler will be shut down from throwing for 5-6 weeks in order to heal the injury. He will be able to take part in light throwing sessions in May and is expected to be completely healed by the end of summer. This was the best-case scenario that the family and North Cobb and Auburn fans were hoping for. Tyler has started for North Cobb since a freshman and has guided the Warriors to a combined 20 wins the past two seasons, the best two-year streak in school history.

GYMNASTICS NOTEBOOK
By Craig Sager II
 
Undefeated Buford returns to action

 

 

Buford gymnastics won its first two meets of 2014, including a top finish in the prestigious 15-team House of Troy Invitational at Lassiter on March 14. The Wolves have been out of action since their triumph and will travel to Lovett on Tuesday for a six-team meet. Buford and Lassiter will be headliners and the field will consist of Lovett, Chattahoochee, Wheeler and First Presbyterian Day.

The Wolves placed fourth in state last season with 106.725 and the Trojans finished sixth with 105.725 total points. 

Lassiter returned its all-around star Mary Katherine Ballow this year and Buford brought back Logan Nugent, who placed fourth in state last season in the all-around category. Nugent only participated in the beam and floor in Buford's last competition, but qualified for state in each category with an outstanding 9.75 on Floor and beam with a 9.075.

 

Carrollton, which placed second in the House of Troy Invitational, looks to be a serious state title contender after last year's third-place finish. The Trojans wrapped up a victory over Pace Academy in their March 19 meet and have three of the better gymnasts in the state leading the way. Hyndel Yett has scored a 9.325 on vault and 9.175 on floor this season while teammate Katie Beth Carter has qualified for state with a 9.05 on floor and a 9.075 on beam. Jennifer Brandenburg is also state bound and in the 9.0 club with a 9.1 on floor and a 9.325 on beat this year. Carrollton visits Lovett on March 27 and will square off with the host Lions, Forsyth Central and Centennial.
