Quick Hits of the Day

The Covington News - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Be­low, you will find some im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing any­thing sports re­lated in the area. This week we have a cou­ple of res­ig­na­tions and Post 77 started off its sea­son with a bang.

Al­covy AD re­signs

Gabe Bur­nette has been with Al­covy High School for two years, but now he is leav­ing the pro­gram to go to Cousins Mid­dle School.

Un­der Bur­nette, eight of Al­covy’s sports teams made it to the post­sea­son this past year.

There was tur­moil in the bas­ket­ball pro­gram this past sea­son as for­mer head coach Jabari Levi re­signed mid­way through the sea­son. Levi’s re­sig- na­tion made him the sec­ond coach to leave Al­covy in two sea­sons, al­though none of this is Bur­nette’s fault, as Levi re­signed for health rea­sons.

Kitchens leaves Salem

Salem High School base­ball coach Chad Kitchens re­signed from Salem to take a coach­ing/teach­ing po­si­tion with Mon­roe Area High School.

Salem went 10-16 last year in­clud­ing a 5-11 record in the re­gion.

“We had some in­di­vid­u­als that did okay last year. We did the best we could in the sit­u­a­tion we had,” Kitchens said.

Mon­roe went just 7-18 this past sea­son, in­clud- ing its 5-11 record in the re­gion.

Post 77

The Mi­ami Heat isn’t the only team look­ing to three-peat and if Rock­dale Post 77’s show­ing on Tues­day says any­thing, they’re up to the chal­lenge.

In the Amer­i­can Legion sea­son opener, Post 77 posted a 10-2 blowout vic­tory over Peachtree City Post 50.

Some re­cent grad­u­ates made some big plays that led to the win, such as: Shawn Guck­en­berger, M.J. Boykin, Daniel Croom and Cole Gibson.

Post 77 won back-toback state ti­tles and is off to a good start in terms of win­ning a third.
