HCMS Tomahawk Talk (10/07/14)

(Franklin) — It’s always great to be able to talk about our different teams and the success that they are having. With that being said, last week was an exciting week of sports at HCMS.

Our softball and football teams successfully completed a sweep of division games while our cross-country team had success, against larger schools, at the cross-country meet at Central. This week our softball and cross-country teams will be competing in their respective playoff games and championship runs.

The softball team recognized their eight graders on Tuesday against Villa Rica. The team had a hard-fought one run victory to send our eighth graders out on top in their last home game.

On Thursday, the Lady Braves traveled to Temple for another division battle against the tigers. Our Lady Braves came out on top by a score of 12-2.

The ladies open up the Middle School playoffs against Mt. Zion on Tuesday at 5:00. If our team wins, they will advance to the Championship game on Thursday. Keep working hard ladies to attain your goals.

The cross-country season is also winding down this week. Our athletes traveled to Central on Saturday and had three athletes place in the top ten.

Donta Dunson took 10th place in the boys division while Lily Langley took 4th and Tori Caldwell took 5th in the girls division.

Great finishes against tough competition! The team will travel to Carrollton Wednesday to compete in the League Championships which starts at 4:30 pm.

Our football traveled to Temple on Thursday to face the undefeated Tigers in a battle for first place in the division and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Our Braves jumped out to a quick 16-0 lead and never looked back. The Braves wound up shutting down the high-powered Tiger offense and claiming a 24-0 victory.

The Braves will play a conference cross-over game this week against Haralson County. The game will kickoff at 5:00. We will be honoring our eighth grade football players, cheerleaders, managers and band members at a ceremony before the game. Come on out and support our Braves.

I would like to close out the weekly newsletter talking about school spirit. At HCMS, we have great students who love to be active and loud. Last Thursday, we had a pep rally that was outstanding. Each grade level was loud and that made it hard to give out the spirit spear, which was won by the eighth graders.

I would like to thank our cheerleaders and band for helping provide an electric atmosphere for our athletes and students. People don’t realize the time and work that these groups put in each week in order to do what they do. I’m already looking forward to the next pep rally.
