Cougars Pounce the Hawks!

Cougars Pounce the Hawks!

Yesterday your young Cougars defended their home lair when an even younger and inexperienced flock of Hawks from The Howard School came to visit. The top of the first inning saw these flighty birds of prey put two runners on but with John Humphries on the mound they just could not push anyone across.  Defensive action for the first inning saw second baseman Daniel Felner corral a ball hit to him and calmly throw out the runner and then shortstop Jacob Cohen make a great running catch and throw to record the second out of the inning and then...

Cougar Baseball Stay Undefeated Against G.I.S.A. Foes

Posted by on Mar 27, 2014 in HS Baseball | 0 comments

There is a lot that could be said about yesterday’s game. Great pitching, pivotal hitting, and defensive gems turned by both the infield and the outfield. To say that we played against the fighting kitty cats from that school on the hill in Dunwoody would be an understatement. I think that Mr. Kipling says it best: If If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too: If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or,...

Cougar Baseball remains undefeated against GISA opponents, moves to 2-1 overall!

Posted by on Mar 20, 2014 in HS Baseball | 0 comments

Having been hit hard with a loss to Mill Springs on Friday, and then being confined to the gym on Tuesday for a rain-out practice, your Cougar baseball squad had to get their “game face” back on in a hurry to face a previously unknown GISA opponent in the Solid Rock Lions yesterday. There was a temporary staffing change for this one as well, since head coach Cecil was out to support the family. Your own Athletic Director Richie Briggs graciously jumped in with me to help coach our sharp young baseball squad for one day. The weather had...

Cougars Baseball Season Opener Roars!

On a day that proved to be overcast, windy, cold, grey, damp, and uncomfortable, only one thing came to mind, WHAT A GREAT DAY FOR BASEBALL!!!!  Opening day and the unofficial first day of Spring was yesterday and your young and hungry Cougars, mighty and thunderous roar in the gallery, made their way to Roswell Area Park to face their nemesis, Brandon Hall, faint, courteous golf clap heard by a few in the far distant background.  This year’s team has a mixture of returning veterans like Jake Daunt, still young but growing second year...

A Bright Future Awaits HS Baseball Team

A Bright Future Awaits HS Baseball Team

Braves Win…Braves Win…Braves Win…………………………………………Braves Win.  That was the call by legendary Braves announcer, the late Skip Carey as Sid Bream slid under the tag of Pittsburgh Pirate catcher Mike LaValliere to win the 1991 National League pennant.  The improbable worst to first scenario  propelled the Braves to an incredible 14 straight National Leagues Pennants, 5 World Series appearances and 1 World Series Championship.  The reason this happened was what went on the year before.  Bobby Cox was named...

Posted by on Apr 15, 2013 in HS Baseball | 0 comments

What a great day for baseball!  On Thursday, April 11, the game started off against the Mill Springs Mustangs with Ray O’Brien taking to the hill for another start. Determined to be the leader of the team, Ray persevered and, with the aid of two sparkling defensive plays by Daniel Felner, coupled with a strike out, the Cougars were able to get out of the inning by only surrendering four runs.  The bottom of the first inning saw us unable to break out the war clubs and went down 1-2-3. The top of the second inning saw Ray starting to find...

3/22/2013: Varsity Cougars Baseball

If you missed Friday’s game, you missed quite a bit. Eighth grader Tyler Kimbal got his first start as a pitcher and did a good job striking out three batters. Timely hitting and errors however made Tyler’s first start a short one. The bottom of the first inning saw history made. Jacob Cohen led off the inning with a beautiful bunt but was thrown out pitcher to first. Jake Daunt then got on base with an error by the short stop. Kia Smith then came up to bat, and on the fourth pitch he propelled a prodigiously powered pellet plummeting...

March 8, 2013: Varsity Cougars Take the Field vs. Cherokee Christian

The young 2103 Baseball Cougars faced a very talented and strong Cherokee Christian team on Friday. It was a beautiful day, bright sunshine and warm temperatures, just an outstanding day for baseball. Friday saw the team get their first two hits of the season and we did, once again, manage to get a runner as far as third base but unfortunately timely hitting was not to be found.  While the score did not favor the Cougars all afternoon, their fight and determination was evident from the first pitch. Teamwork and support for each other is being...

3/3/2011: Varsity Baseball Region Opener vs. Brandon Hall

Posted by on Mar 9, 2011 in HS Baseball | 0 comments

Yesterday was another outstanding day for baseball, (well actually, any day is a great day for baseball), but what made yesterday great was the fact that it was our region opener against the Panthers of Brandon Hall. The top of the first saw another of the “Young Guns” take to the mound for their first outing of the year when Zack Feeman took the pearl.  The action started fight off the bat as the first batter of the Tabby Cats hit a long fly ball to deep center where Kent Chambers tracked it down to record the first out of the game. The...
