Freeman gets 370th WIN

Eastside (10-9, 6-6 Region 4-AAAA) played like something was on the line in the fourth quarter of its matchup with region foe Locust Grove, and probably unbeknownst to the players, they were. With the eventual dominant 69-53 win over the Warriors, Eastside head coach, Gregory Freeman earned the 370th win of his career.

EHS WILL play at SHarp

Earlier in the week, there was social media uproar from Eastside soccer students because they were told they wouldn't be able to play home games at Sharp Stadium this year. Eastside's soccer field isn't in the condition it needs to be in to allow students to play on it, and Sharp is the only alternative.

Lady Eagles soar above .500

Looking at their record (5-10, 4-3 Region 4-AAAA) you would think that the Lady Eagles of Eastside are struggling through this basketball season. But for their sake, they are above .500 where it matters, with a 4-3 record in Region 4-AAAA play. Eastside was able to pick up its fourth region win of the season on Friday night with a 58-50 win over Eagle's Landing. With that win, Eastside has won three straight region games.

Eastside sinks Pirates

The Eastside boys and girls basketball teams have gotten off to slow starts this season. After both teams made waves last year, they were depleted by the departure of key senior players who moved on to college. The Eagles (3-6, 2-3 Region 4-AAAA) and the Lady Eagles (2-7, 2-3 Region 4-AAAA) both got wins over Pike County on Friday night to move them in the right direction at the quarter mark of the season.

Dynamic Duo

At least Eastside doesn't have Tim Tebow

Eastside football may have its problems this year. Injuries and suspensions, a talent drain on the offensive line and a new quarterback come to mid. But at least the Eagles don't have to deal with what the Denver Broncos are going through with Tim Tebow.

It's time for that Eagle pride to reemerge

The last time Eastside football lost three games in a row, Jimmie Johnson had yet to win a Sprint Cup championship, my house was still worth more than I paid for it and an up-and-coming young senator from Illinois had everyone wondering if we were ready for our first black president. After Friday's 21-3 loss to Stockbridge, that's exactly where the Eagles find themselves. It's a place no player in the program today has ever been. It's certainly a place nobody around the program thought they'd be in anytime soon.
