This will be an odd week in local high school football. Two teams, Fayette County (0-3) and Sandy Creek (3-0), are off. They will face each other next Friday as they kick off their region schedule. Landmark Christian (2-2) also has a bye. The games featuring local teams this week will all be on the road.
Sandy Creek improved to 3-0 on Thursday night and the question was whether or not McIntosh and Our Lady of Mercy were going to join them as the other undefeated teams from the county.
The answer seemed to come early.
Whitewater’s varsity volleyball team went 5-1 in the Lovett Block Party, beating St. Pius X (25-16, 25-17), Kennesaw Mountain (25-7, 25-8), Roswell (25-13, 25-18), Johns Creek (25-11, 25-18) and Pope (25-7, 25-19) before losing to Woodward Academy (26-24, 18-25, 15-6).

Starr’s Mill Class of 2015
Starr’s Mill hosted their first ever cross-country meet at Heritage Christian Church on Saturday, September 8. Pastor Doug Fultz opened the course by welcoming the 30 teams and 1,100 runners that competed in the first Panther Invitational.
Sandy Creek Patriots (2-0) vs. East Coweta Indians (1-1), Thursday, 7:30 p.m.
Thursday night football this week for the Creek and this one feels like a “Must See.” These two teams have tangled twice before and split the games.
Fayette County (0-2) hosted Starr's Mill in a battle between county rivals. The two teams slugged it out in something of a defensive battle until the Panthers got a 68 yard touchdown run from Dion Munerlyn in the third quarter, his second of the night, and a 27 yard field goal from Daniel Rorick in the fourth to seal the win.
Fayette County Tigers (0-1) vs. Starr’s Mill Panthers (0-1)

The Fayette County Lady Tigers softball team lost to Shaw last Thursday 8-1 in a region matchup. Tomorrow at 5 p.m. they get another region game when they host Carrollton.
McIntosh went 2-1 over the last two weeks with a 9-0 loss to Pike County sandwiched between a 15-0 win over Mt. Zion, Jonesboro and an 18-0 win over Drew. The Lady Chiefs get a big test today when they host Whitewater at 5:30 p.m. They will follow it with an away game at Forest Park tomorrow at 5:30 p.m.

WHS Class of 2013
Recap: Last season the Wildcats had another strong year going 7-2 before a devastating 23-22 loss to Griffin in the region playoffs. The defense was the key for the Wildcats last season as they were as shutdown as any team in the state allowing 14 points per game and only 7 points per game in the games they won.
Coming off of a tough loss to Griffin in last year’s state playoffs the 2012 Whitewater Wildcats were ready to get back on the field and prove themselves. Their opponent was Coffee County hailing from Region 1-AAAAAA and they were looking for redemption as well after going 5-6 the previous year.
