SPORTS- January 19th
Sports: Taylor Smith
Winter sports are in full swing, and spring sports are about to kick off! Our winter sports consist of basketball, cheerleading, wrestling, and now our Dancing Devils. The Dancing Devils is a new step team that was started by Mrs. A. Rucker. The girls on the team have put on outstanding shows during their first season! Our spring sports consist of tennis, soccer, baseball, track, and golf.
Basketball: Halfway through the season, both teams are doing awesome! The girls are maintaining a strong record of 10-6, while the boys are continuing a 13 win streak with a record of 14-2. Both teams have 8 regular season game left until playoffs begin. Region games have already begun, but we will be playing Rabun, Monticello, Social Circle, and Putnam. These games are vital for us to win.
Wrestling: Our wrestlers have had an outstanding season on the matt. With multiple wins, the devils are headed to State Duals! The Devils defeated Josey 78-6 and Banks Co 54-27, leading them into 2nd place at the 4 AA area duals. Our Devils have worked so hard this season, and their hard work sure has paid off! We can’t wait to see what state duals has in store for our devils.
Another upcoming event in the athletic world is Free Physical Day! This Saturday January 13th is free physical day for ECCHS. All athletes need a physical in order to participate in any sport. Our Blue Devil Athletes sure do make ECCHS proud!
