Southeast Bulloch is off to a 2-0 start in 2010 thanks in large part to a vastly improved defense. Through the first two weeks, the Yellow Jackets are allowing 30.9 fewer points per game than last season.
PEMBROKE - Last week, 15-year-old Dalton Raulerson of Pembroke suited up for his first game as a member of the Pinewood Christian Academy varsity football team.
SYLVANIA - Game planning for ways to beat Screven County doesn't take much time. Not because the Lady Gamecocks are easy opponents, but rather because there are so few ways to avoid their seemingly endless strengths.
He may not be the biggest player on the football field, but no one stands taller for Statesboro High than 5-foot-7 senior running back Aaron Lester.
From staff reports
Senior James Brack scored on both offense and defense as classmate John Harden broke into the record book twice in Bulloch Academy's 40-7 thrashing of Robert Toombs Christian Academy Friday night at Gator Alley.
METTER - The Portal Panthers had enough left over for one second-half push, but their 17-play, six-minute, 20 second, 57-yard drive stalled at the Metter 5-yard line as they fell 13-7 Friday at the hands of the Tigers in The Jungle.
BROOKLET - Pat Collins teaches math. So the Southeast Bulloch head coach had little trouble figuring out Friday night's results.
In a game that promised to have two talented teams squaring off in a playoff-type atmosphere, this one more than lived up to the billing.
It may still be early, but each week brings Statesboro face to face with another playoff-caliber opponent.
BROOKLET - Last week was a cause for celebration, but now it's right back to business.
Speed and deception will be the main weapons tonight at Gator Alley when Bulloch Academy hosts Robert Toombs Christian Academy.
SYLVANIA - No one is perfect, but on the mound, Marla Thompson is frighteningly close. Thompson allowed just two hits and faced just one over the minimum as Screven County cruised to a 6-0 victory over Region 3-AA rival Southeast Bulloch Thursday evening in Sylvania.
BA's Lewis is running wild
It may have only been one win, but Statesboro's win over Brunswick in last Friday's 2010 season opener settled some old scores, answered some new questions, and has set the tone for what the Blue Devils hope will be another great year.
"Homecoming, at last!"
The Bulloch Academy Gators already have five games in the books, but more than half of their schedule is still in front of them.
The Bulloch Academy Lady Gators have seen a long run of excellence on the softball diamond. Unsurprisingly, each year seems to bring about a new group of veteran leaders who lead the team through a tough region slate and on into the postseason.
