Indians turn focus to traditional area tournament

by Chris Goltermann

While Archer and Camden County battled it out for a state championship at Saturday's GHSA Class AAAAAA State Duals, East Coweta began to turn its attention back toward next month's Area 3-AAAAAA Traditional tournament at home after facing two of the stronger finishers in Macon.

'That's really what the season's all about,' said East Coweta head coach Josh Herring prior to leaving for the state duals. 'That's what you work to prepare for.'

The Indians were eliminated on Friday with a 52-25 loss to Chattahoochee, which along with Etowah - East Coweta's opening-round opponent on Thursday - survived to the fourth round of the wrestlebacks.

Chattahoochee was knocked out by defending state champion Collins Hill, which went on to place third after losing 56-13 to Archer. Etowah fell to North Forsyth, which placed fourth after losing 45-18 to Camden County.

Over both of East Coweta's matches, sophomore 106-pound captain Dusty Nelson and 152-pounder James Walker each won twice. Corey Chambers and junior Kevin Lashley added victories in the loss to Chattahoochee, while Alex Sorenson and heavyweight Dawson Ellis won matches against Etowah.

With three weeks left before the area traditionals tournaments, East Coweta and Northgate will meet on Tuesday at Northgate in a dual meet while Newnan hosts LaGrange. SWIMMING Va r sit y swim lineups returned to the pool after their longest break of the 2013-14 season on Saturday with East Coweta and Northgate traveling to Athens for the annual Clarke-Oconee Invitational at the University of Georgia's Ramsey Center.

All three county lineups have been preparing for Tuesday's annual county tri-meet at the Summit Family YMCA's Peniston- Powell Aquatic Center.
