Summer Wrap-Up, Fall Start-Up

By: Tim Lambert

During All-Star Week competitions in July, Tanner’s Skyler Townsend scored 12 points for the boys’ North All-Star basketball team in a last second 81-79 loss to the South. East Limestone’s Briana Proudfoot and Tanner’s Christian Cruz were part of North All-Star soccer teams that swept the South. The girls got a 3-2 victory; Christian allowed only one goal in the second half as the boys were 6-3 winners. Lindsay Lane’s Chloe Ruble finished with the lowest point total of 12.5 in the girls’ division as the North girls’ golf team also swept the South; Athens Bible School’s Luke Davis along with Westbrook Christian’s Eli Edge won the boys’ #1 competition. James Clemens’ Bhavya Chalasani won the girls’ #3 tennis match.

Athens High’s Adalyn Pike and Lindsay Lane grad Chloe Ruble won the Alabama Golf Association’s 16th Women’s State Four Ball championship with a 14-under par to score a total 130.

Congratulations to James Clemens’ Nate Jennings and Athens High’s JayShon Ridgle for their football commitments to South Alabama.
