Rams’ run ends

Man, what a run it was. Newton played the underdog three times in the state playoffs, first upsetting Tift County – originally a favorite to at least make the elite eight – then beating Dacula in the sweet sixteen. However, Newton couldn't best Wheeler in the elite eight and fell to the Wildcats 72-54.

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.

Newton comes up short

The Lady Rams of Newton have been in a bunch of close games all year. They beat Tucker by two in their first game of the season, they beat Alcovy on a putback buzzer beater, they survived to beat Eastside and Rockdale by one and they beat Heritage by three. This would leave you to believe that when Newton had the ball down one, with a little less than 30 seconds left that they'd pull out a victory and win the region championship.

Being a football coach in today's world is a complicated and draining occupation that has it highs and lows. Your biggest duty is to teach and motivate your players to become better on the field, and turn that into winning football games. That itself is not a walk in the park with complexities and other outside distractions that can happen; it's very complicated to build a winning team.

2014-2015 basketball power rankings

Rivalry game after rivalry game, fans take to social media, the local barbershops and pretty much any place where you can strike up a normal conversation to discuss which school/team is the best.

Q&A: Rick Rasmussen

After another region win against the Rams on Friday, Tucker currently sits atop the region 2-AAAAAA standings, as Newton (16-5, 3-4 Region 2-AAAAAA) ranks fourth in the region behind Rockdale (15-6, 5-2 Region 2-AAAAAA) and Lovejoy (4-10, 3-3 Region 2-AAAAAA).
