West Point players represent community well

September 1, 2010

Daytona Beach told the West Point community several months ago that they were going to be as hospitable as possible when the Green Wave came down to play Mainland High School.
The city lived up to that promise, and the Green Wave football players lived up to their promise to be great guests while in the ocean front community.
West Point head coach Chris Chambless and his 16 assistant coaches took 81 high school football players on a three-day trip, which included two 13 drives, and he could not help but brag on his kids’ behavior over the weekend.

New Green Wave site a hit during team’s road trip

September 1, 2010

In the past, Green Wave fans who were unable to make it to road games could listen to Bud Bowen do his signature play-by-play on the radio, but they would have to wait for the 10 o’clock news for even the smallest video glimpse of what went on.
Last Friday night’s road game was probably the longest West Point has ever taken, and if one was not a part of the 300-plus crowd in the visitor’s section at Daytona Municipal Stadium, today’s multimedia was almost essential to get the game.

Chambless credits coaches for success

September 1, 2010

Whether fans were listening to the radio or following Friday night’s game in Daytona on the internet’s live stream, spectators of West Point’s 14-0 win over the Buccaneers only got to see a small part of the puzzle that was the Green Wave’s weekend.
The ride down and the ride back were both around a baker’s dozen hours each. There were 81 players, and there was only so much space to go around.

Diamond Eagles strand 13, fall in extras

September 1, 2010

The Hebron Christian Diamond Eagles out-hit the Lady Patriots of Marshall Academy on Monday night 7-3. When the final score was tallied, however, the Holly Springs team took the home win 2-1 in extra innings.
“I could tell in the first inning we didn’t come to play,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley. “We were slow with the bat all day. We weren’t striking out just were not driving the ball and there was really no reason for that except lack of focus.”

Entire weekend turns out to be a success

August 31, 2010

I’ve had some exciting weekends in my life. I can remember going on some pretty memorable college road trips, great family vacations and even some recent vacations that were pretty fun filled.
None of those road trips, however, compare with the the 72-plus hours that passed last weekend.
The West Point Green Wave were scheduled to play their biggest regular season road game in years in Daytona Beach Fla. Friday night, and there was no way I was going to miss that.

Last week’s loss to Starkville Academy snapped a four-game win streak for the Lady Eagles of Hebron Christian School. The 9-4 beating by the Lady Vols did not get Hebron down for too long though.
Last Thursday, Calhoun Academy came to town for a visit, and it was a short one. The Lady Eagles got back into the win column with a 17-1 victory over the Lady Cougars.
“I thought we played well,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley. “With 14 hits and seven of them being for extra bases, we seem to be swinging the bat hard.”

Pillow withstands Oak Hill charge

August 30, 2010

In the world of high school football, there is no rest for the weary.
For Oak Hill Academy, that axiom has proven true for two straight weeks to open the season.
On Friday night, Oak Hill, with 18 varsity players, stood toe-to-toe with Class AAA power Pillow for more than two quarters, only to see the Mustangs – with their roster of 55 – eventually pull away in a 31-6 win.
While the roster numbers don’t lie, Oak Hill head coach Leroy Gregg refused to offer those facts as an excuse.

West Point crowd a factor on long road trip

August 30, 2010

It’s now safe to say that everybody who paid to see Friday night’s showdown between the Green Wave of West Point and the Mainland Buccaneers got their money’s worth.
It didn’t matter if these fans never saw the beach or the beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic. It didn’t matter that the 40 percent chance for rain at Daytona turned into a dismal 100 percent reality as the game kicked off. The West Point fans, and Mainland alike, were treated to some of the best football the Southeast has to offer on Friday nights.

Every player was exhausted, the sun was three hours gone, and the rain was falling hard, but the West Point football team was going to the beach anyway late Friday night.
The reason? It was a reward for one of West Point’s biggest regular season wins in years.
Behind a stout defensive effort and bruising ground game, West Point won its 16th straight game here Friday night with a 14-0 shutout victory over Daytona’s Mainland High.

By the time this article reaches the stands, the West Point Green Wave football team, along with all of their luggage and amenities, will be on the first leg of their day-long trip to Daytona Beach, Fla.
The Wave will hit the beach sometime this evening, leaving them 24 hours to rest before week two’s kickoff with the Mainland High School Buccaneers.
West Point head coach Chris Chambless knew that it was going to be a short and tough week for the Wave, practicing for the upcoming game and preparing for a long ride in the team bus.
