The sub-region has been clinched for over two weeks, and now it's time for Statesboro to set its sights on goals that are a bit loftier.

EVANS - Greenbrier showed up with a bag of tricks, but in the end, it was Statesboro treating its hosts to a blowout.

PORTAL - Nearly half of Portal's roster was on the field to be recognized at Senior Night Friday. If the Panthers keep playing like they have been, those 15 seniors might still have plenty of games to look forward to.
The third time's a charm for the Portal Panthers girls' golf team.
