Home / Starr's Mill
The Starr’s Mill swim team competed in their first meet of the season on Saturday, Nov. 10. They swam in the Wildcat Invitational at Lundquist Aquatic Center in Clayton County.
McIntosh's boys delivered a 1-2 punch in many cross country meets this season. In the state meet last weekend, it was good enough for a state title.
Several of tonight's football games had playoff implications but few of them had much drama.

Starr’s Mill Class of 2015
On Saturday, Nov. 3, many high school cross-country reams participated in their region meets. One of these meets was the region 4-AAAAA championship, hosted by Starr’s Mill at Heritage Christian Church. Eleven teams were at the meet including local teams such as McIntosh, Whitewater, and Starr’s Mill. This was the most important race of the year so far because only the top four male and female teams advanced to the state meet.
The playoffs are here! The playoffs are here!
Well, sort of.
Sandy Creek, the top ranked team in Class AAAA, hosted Carrollton, the fourth ranked team, tonight in a game to decide the region championship. It was pretty much decided in the third quarter when the Patriots got a 75 yard touchdown run from Delvin Weems, his second touchdown of the quarter, to take a 30-0 lead.
Four of the five local volleyball teams that made the state semifinals in their respective classifications will play for state championships. Sandy Creek and Landmark go for their titles on Saturday and McIntosh and Whitewater will tangle on Monday.
Northgate defeated Starr's Mill last week and hosts McIntosh in a game that will likely give the winner the third seed from the sub-region. Starr's Mill hosts Whitewater and the Panthers would like to try an end a tough season on a good note.
The state volleyball semifinals take place Halloween night and five local teams are hoping for a treat. A win on Wednesday will send them to the finals in their respective classifications.
Momentum can be one of the more important factors in a football game. The Fayette County Tigers had a wealth of momentum in the second half, scoring 30 straight points, but it wasn't enough for them to hang on when the momentum switched back to Troup.
