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,...

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...

The Cottage School played host to their final non-conference game of the season versus a GISA school, Solid Rock Christian. TCS struggled early, but came back with vengeance the second half taking a 37-35 lead with five minutes in regulation.

Solid Rock capitalized off three of the turnovers and scored twice off the offensive glass in the final four minutes to win 48-41. Down just 11-21 at halftime, the Cougars looked overmatched...

Lady Cougars and Lady Mustangs in Barnburner

Dateline – Alpharetta, Ga. A variety of clichés could describe Tuesday afternoon’s collision between the Lady Cougars and the Lady Mustangs of MSA: heavyweight title bout, defensive battle, or old fashioned rock fight.  Yet none of these sports-page standbys adequately convey the intensity and physicality displayed in the MSA gymnasium.  “Both teams experienced a sting of close games against one another, and both teams anxiously await a breakout conference win to propel them into the playoffs.” remarked Coach Cutchin prior to the...

Cougars hold on and prevail 53-50 in nail-biter over North Georgia!

The Cottage School Cougars welcomed the North Georgia Falcons to the Cougar Center for the first time last night. TCS and the home school have a little history as it was these very same Falcons who lost to the Cougars in the infamous five overtime contest at their place in Canton, GA back in 2008. Last night’s match up did not produce that kind of drama, but it did go down to the final few possessions to decide the winner. After Cottage held as much as an eighteen point cushion (42-24) with five minutes remaining in the third period, North...
