GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIP

Buford returns to Westminster for title defense 

 

The 2015 gymnastics state championship will take place this Friday at Westminster and feature some of the best gymnasts in the nation. The six top teams in the state will meet to crown a winner. Colquitt County, Roswell, Carrollton, Forsyth Central, Lambert and defending champion Buford will compete for the team title. The Wolves won their first ever state title after dethroning Lambert last year. Roswell enters with a championship pedigree and seven titles to its name with its last coming in 2007. Carrollton and Forsyth Central are seeking first ever titles, while Colquitt County won its lone championship in 2006. 


 
In each event, there will be 12 gymnasts competing for the individual title. A team can put up to four gymnasts in a single event and the top three scores will advance to the event state title. Lambert will be without Katie Stuart, the defending all-around state champ. Stuart was unable to compete in last week's prelims due to a scheduling conflict with the Junior Olympics regional meet. The Longhorns will instead rely upon senior Delaney Givens and sophomores Alaina Steinberg and Maddy Lord to lead Lambert back to the podium.


 
Buford will begin its title defense on the beams, an area where the team struggled last year with three of their four gymnasts falling during their routines. The Wolves are competing for just their third year, but head coach Amanda Allen has already instilled a winning tradition. Junior Logan Nugent finished third in the all-around with a 36.975 last year. Teammate Berkley Berrett, now a sophomore, placed sixth in the all-around as a freshman and will look to pace the Wolves.


 
Head coach Nicki McGovern has Carrollton back at state after a second place finish in 2014. The Trojans fell 110.225 to 109.35 to Buford. Forsyth Central finished fourth a year ago and returns behind the talents of Mackenzie Miller and Emily Flint. Both Colquitt County and Roswell enter the field of six after not qualifying last season.


 
There will be a new all-around champion this year with the absence of Stuart. Cara Trench of Northview and Khloe Parker of Tift County will be part of the field vying for the top spot. Tift County has produced state championship teams in 2011 and 2012. Other qualifiers for individual events include: Brittany Kean-Murphy (Northview), Katherine Buckner (Walton), Sydney Barrett (Cartersville), Tierra Acoff (Camden County), Bobimarie Henderson (Lassiter), Dani Antunez (Cambridge) and Kelly Aycock (Locust Grove).


COACHING NEWS

Lanier AD Chad Longe steps down from role as baseball head coach


 

Chad Longe took over a brand new Lanier baseball program in 2010 and has decided to step down as pass the torch. Longe has handled the responsibilities of Athletic Director in the Longhorns' growing athletic program and knew it was time to take a little off his plate. Longe tookover as AD late last summer. 

 

"I probably knew I wasn't going to be able to do both (early on)," Longe told the Gwinnett Daily Post. "But being able to finish out (this season) and go out on my own terms was important to me."

BASEBALL NEWS

Campbell returns to playoffs for first time in 23 seasons with walkoff thriller


 

Campbell used a 7-6 win over South Cobb to clinch its first playoff berth in 23 years. It was the final regular-season game and Region 3AAAAAA's No. 4 seed was on the line for both teams.


Mike Lyons sparked the game-winning RBI in walkoff fashion, sending a pitch to deep left-center field, and plating David Glenndining from second base. Campbell trailed 6-4 in the final inning but tied it up to give Lyons a chance to close the game in the bottom of the seventh with one out. 

My teammates got two runs to tie, and I did what I was taught to do and hit the ball hard, and it went into the gap," Lyons told the Marietta Daily Journal. "It feels great that I was able to help my team get to the playoffs. I was so excited setting up for my at-bat. This is what baseball is all about. Only a few people get this opportunity, and I just took my chance and ran with it."
