Newton adds 3 to 2015 signing class

We all know the saying "the rich get richer," and that seems to apply to the Newton Rams football program. After an historic Elite Eight run, Newton was able to celebrate all the hard work that was put in this entire season. On top of that, National Signing Day, back in February, was a busy day for the Rams as nine players signed their letter of intent to play football at the next level. Within the last few weeks, that number has risen to 12 as three more players signed for the Rams.

"He had [lost] so much blood, and they say he broke every bone in his face and fractured his skull. It was so much blood and swelling that the CT scan wasn't giving them the reading that they needed. The body didn't look like anything was wrong with it. It was just his head," says Tracy Betts, Carlvon Betts' mother, recalling her son's fatal car accident. "They took him and decided to get the bleeding to stop. At that point he was bleeding out of his ears, out of his nose, his mouth...everything. It wasn't ...

The Newton way

The Rams' state playoff run stopped on a cold Thursday night at Wheeler High School, with a large number of Newton fans tucked inside Wheeler's gym hoping to see the Newton boys basketball team pull of yet another upset.

Cold bats give Newton its third loss

Even with the winter weather we experienced this past week, spring sports are off and running in full affect. The Newton High School baseball team has already got into the middle of their non-region schedule. Due to several rain-outs, Newton had only played two games until Friday evening where they were looking to get a win over the MLK Lions. Going into the game 0-2, Newton needed this win to kick start the season, but couldn't get it done and fell 8-4 to the Lions.

Newton against the WORLD

No. Way. There was no way Newton would go down and beat defending Region 2-AAAAAA state champion Tift County as a No. 4 seed, versus the second-ranked team in the state. Not in Tift. Not a team that was 26-1, undefeated in their region and hadn't lost a game since January 8.
