Last week’s win over Winston Academy was huge for the Diamond Raiders of Oak Hill Academy.
The Lady Raiders gutted out a one-run victory that kept their playoff hopes alive.
They are going to be trying to stay in the post-season hunt this evening, as they face off against the Lady Mavericks of Manchester Academy, at home.
The playoff chances are still faint, but they are there, and the Lady Raiders can still make it in if all of the cards fall in the right places.

It’s been a tale of one-run ball games for the Lady Eagles over the last two weeks. They’ve won some, and they have fallen as well. Last Thursday, the Hebron girls had a bout with Kemper Academy, at home.
On this one-run occasion, the Lady Eagles prevailed by a 2-1 score.
“We moved Freshman Alaina Hill into the leadoff spot on Tuesday and it sure paid off today,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley.
The game was scoreless through the first two innings, as Chloe Tapley took to the circle for Hebron, as she has done faithfully all season.

OXFORD, (AP) — On the final crazy play of a crazy game, Jacksonville State running back Calvin Middleton found himself in the middle of a mass of bodies as quarterback Coty Blanchard lofted a 2-point conversion pass toward the end zone.
Somehow, through the arms and legs, Middleton came down with the football as the Gamecocks celebrated a stunning 49-48 victory over Mississippi in double overtime.

When the 2010 season started, Hebron head coach Greg Watkins knew that the first few weeks were going to be tough. Although numbers were up for the Eagles, the roster began with less than 20, and the team needs the first few games to adjust before district play starts.
That’s still about a month away, and the Eagles are a good ways from being ready to compete for a playoff spot, but they are getting there, week by week and quarter by quarter.

Lady Raiders dig deep for vital district victory

Oak Hill’s Lady Raiders thought they had two strikes against them before they even loaded the bus for district rival, Winston Academy, Monday afternoon. Veteran pitcher Mamie Allen and all-around standout, Tori Ellis, would both spend the game on the bench with injuries.
Maegen Ellis took the pitching circle for Allen and Coach Marion Bratton moved his outfielders around to compensate for Tori Ellis’s loss, putting Codi Williams in right field and moving Anne Stevens to left field. Meg McBrayer moved up to play third base for Maegen Ellis.

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.”
