Eagles look to pressure McDonald

Eastside quarterback Austin Holloway dropped back and delivered a pass to avoid taking what would've been a sack in practice on Wednesday. The Eagles' defense quickly took down the receiver, something they've struggled with as of late, and head coach Rick Hurst praised his defense, but he also coached up players to what they needed to do right.

Eagles fall to Henry County 34-24, miss postseason

Despite all that went wrong for Eastside leading up to Friday's winner-take-all season finale at Henry County, the Eagles still had a shot at the playoffs. Late turnovers proved to be too much to overcome though and the Warhawks will be the region's fourth playoff team after a 34-24 win.

It's win or bust for the Eagles in season finale at Henry County

Eastside travels to Henry County for its season finale and the Eagles have a very simple goal. Win. If they do, they'll make a return trip to the Class AAA playoffs for an unprecedented fourth straight year. But it won't be easy.

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.

For the first time in almost a month, Eastside looked like, well, Eastside.

Rankins to miss rest of season with broken leg

Lady Eagles out after 4-0 loss

DEXTER - As has been the case in many of Eastside's recent games, especially this postseason, it came down to one inning against West Laurens in game three of the Lady Eagles' second-round playoff series. This time though, Eastside was on the short end of the stick.

Lady Eagles stay alive after 2-0 win in game two

DEXTER - On paper, Eastside didn't stand much of a chance against West Laurens in the second round of the Class AAA softball playoffs Wednesday. On the diamond, they did more than hold their own.

Lady Eagles face tough opponent in round two

Eastside softball squeaked out two close victories over Harlem last week in the opening round of the Class AAA playoffs and is rewarded with a trip to West Laurens to take on a Raider team also looking to get back to Columbus for the Elite Eight.

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.

Local teams face slate of key games

The three high schools are all in action tonight for the first time in three weeks and while the opponents are different, the agenda is the same. Win. Certainly every football team wants to win every time out but for Eastside, Alcovy and Newton, a win tonight carries significant meaning.

Cardiac Kids

Eastside and Harlem played 15 innings of nearly flawless softball over two games in the opening round of the Class AAA softball playoffs Wednesday. Ironically, the series was decided by one miscue.

Eagles fall to Drew 28-21 for second region loss

Eastside dropped its second straight region game Saturday, putting its chance of earning the second-seed and a home playoff game in peril. Based on the way the Eagles played in their 28-21 loss to Drew, just earning a playoff berth may prove to be an accomplishment.

Eastside loses 4-0, misses region title

Eastside can't help to feel like it let one get away. That one would be the Region 4-AAA softball title and a No. 1 seed in next week's state playoffs.

Eagles look to rebound, travel to Drew

Eastside's epic battle with Sandy Creek Saturday will go down as one of the toughest losses in school history. That the eagles came to within a minute and a 76-yard touchdown pass away from knocking off the top team in the state – a feat not done in 34 games now, is of little consolation. Especially with work left to do.
