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

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!

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...
