Prep sports notebook: NHS girls, WRHS boys claim titles at county track championships

April 16, 2014 

McConnell-Talbert Stadium hosted the Houston County Track & Field Championships April 9 with all local high schools in competition.

Northside ran away with the girls team championship after posting a dominant 145 points. Warner Robins finished second with 63, and Houston County took third with 57. The Eagles won every discipline other than distance running.

The Warner Robins Demons claimed the boys title with a score of 88 points. They were followed by Veterans with 69 and Perry with 63. The key to victory for the Demons came in the jumping events where they totaled 34 points. Sophomore Marquez Callaway won the high jump, and fellow sophomore Richard Campbell finished second in the long jump.

Eagles pick up subregion win; Bears no longer undefeated

The GHSA 2B-AAAAA baseball race witnessed a pair of firsts recently, and both came in the last week of the subregion schedule.

Northside picked up its first and only subregion win in dramatic fashion over the rival Warner Robins Demons Friday. Northside trailed by six runs early but shut out the Demons the rest of the way and got a pair of home runs from senior Ethan Broome for a 9-7 win. Broome’s second home run knocked in three and put the Eagles ahead.

Houston County entered Saturday’s game against Jones County with a perfect 8-0 subregion record but fell 9-4 for its first loss in 15 games.

The Bears had already clinched the No. 1 seed out of Region 2B-AAAAA and will host the No. 4 seeded Grovetown Warriors from 2A-AAAAA on Friday in the region crossover series to determine state tournament berths.

Warner Robins will go on the road as the No. 3 seed and will face either Evans or Lakeside-Evans. Northside is the No. 4 seeded team and will have a tough match up with perennial power Greenbrier, which went unbeaten in subregion play.
