Felipe Bar­rios led the Jack­ets with an eighth-place fin­ish in­di­vid­u­ally. Also con­tribut­ing to the team score was Brody Blalock, Julio Lopez, Jonathan San­tana and Nestor Her­nan­dez.

The Lady Jack­ets fin­ished sixth as a team de­spite bat­tling a few in­juries and sick­ness. Mari Mo­rales was the top fin­isher for Cal­houn with a sev­enth-place fin­ish. Teresa Nguyen, Adama­riz Perez, Angie Pegueros and San­dra Ramirez con­trib­uted to the team fin­ish with their per­for­mances.

Davis also pitched a com­plete game for the win in the cir­cle, go­ing seven in­nings and al­low­ing three runs (two earned) on eight hits while strik­ing out six.

Des­tiny Parker had the only hit for Gor­don Cen­tral (2-9, 2-5) and also pitched the com­plete game while tak­ing the loss.

The Lady War­riors will visit Chat­tooga on Wed­nes­day at 5:30 p.m.

VOL­LEY­BALL Cal­houn, Sono­rav­ille have solid show­ings at Coahulla Creek Tour­ney

Both Cal­houn and Sono­rav­ille trav­eled to Coahulla Creek on Satur­day to com­pete in the Vol­ley at the Creek Tour­na­ment with the Lady Jack­ets go­ing 3-1 and the Lady Phoenix go­ing 2-2.

Cal­houn de­feated Coahulla Creek, Adairsville and Chris­tian Her­itage in pool play be­fore los­ing to Coahulla Creek in the Gold Bracket elim­i­na­tion round.

Anna Ge­orge led Cal­houn (20-10) with 24 kills and five blocks. Also con­tribut­ing big days were Emma Kate Smith with 12 kills, six aces and five blocks, So­phie Ste­wart with 12 kills and seven aces, Erin Davis with 23 as­sists and nine aces and Anna Hoblitzell with 12 as­sists.

The Lady Phoenix (9-16) got off to a strong start in pool play, de­feat­ing Ridge­land (2927, 15-25, 26-24) and Dal­ton (25-18, 29-27), be­fore fall­ing to even­tual tour­na­ment cham­pion Gor­don Lee (19-25, 21-25). The Phoenix moved on to gold bracket tour­na­ment play, where they had a see-saw bat­tle, but fell to Fan­nin County (25-21, 19-25, 23-25).

“We shook things up a bit, in­sert­ing sev­eral ju­nior var­sity play­ers into the lineup, and they played well,” said Sono­rav­ille coach Trace Vaughn. “We now have two start­ing mid­dles out with in­juries (Diana Bishop and Raleigh Hooper), and Bree (Steely) was play­ing with an in­jury. We have few ar­eas where we are play­ing well on a con­sis­tent ba­sis. We will con­tinue to tweak things un­til we find the right com­bi­na­tion. I’m look­ing for more heart and in­ten­sity; we have tons of tal­ent, but the ef­fort and ex­e­cu­tion have to im­prove. Over­all, I was happy with what we did in three of our four matches on Satur­day, but we played re­ally poorly against Gor­don Lee af­ter beat­ing them ear­lier in the sea­son. I am look­ing for girls who will play hard ev­ery time they step on the court.”

Sta­tis­ti­cally, Alea John­son had 42 as­sists, seven digs and 6 aces, Kin­sey Wilson had 26 digs, Bree Steely had 14 kills, eight digs, four as­sists and two blocks, Abby Cham­bers had seven kills, two blocks and seven aces on 33-of-33 serv­ing, Anissa Hales had 14 digs and two kills, Sky­lar Huskins had 12 digs and two kills; Sa­man­tha Lewis had nine aces and seven kills, Alexis Lin­coln had nine kills, Han­nah We­hunt had eight digs and two aces, Lauren DeFoor had four kills and Han­nah Key had two aces.

Cal­houn will visit Bre­men on Thurs­day at 5 p.m.; Sono­rav­ille will be at Har­al­son County for a tri-match along with Chapel Hill.
