August 30th---The Appling County Pirates racked up 357 yards in total offense as they defeated the Vidalia Indians 24-0 in the opening game of the 2019 season Friday night at Buck Cravey Field. The Indians were held to 74 yards of total yards of offense while being shutout for the first time in 19 games.8 31 19 VHS Football

The Pirates took the ball on the opening possession of the game and drove it 41 yards in six plays before fumbling the ball away with 7:09 remaining in the first quarter. The Indians would move the ball to the 42 yard line 5 plays but an illegal procedure penalty and a sack of QB Bryce Davis forced the Indians into their first of seven punts of the night giving the ball back to the Pirates at their 46 yard line.

The Indians defense would hold the Pirates to a 3 and out with the help of a holding penalty and would be forced to punt to the Indians with 34 seconds left to go in the first quarter. The Indians would begin their 2nd possession of the night at their own 20 yard line, and would go three and out and again punt, this time to the Appling 41 where the Appling returner couldn’t handle the punt and turned the ball over for the 2nd time on the night.

Again, the Indians wouldn’t be able to move the ball against a stingy Appling defense and would be forced to punt for the third time in three possessions.

Appling County would begin the next possession on their own 11 yard line. From there they would only need 7 plays to take it 89 yards for the first score of the night a 1 yard run by RJ Conaway to make it 7-0 with 2:11 to go in the half.

On the ensuing kickoff Marc Wardlaw would take the kick and go up the Vidalia sideline returning the ball to the Appling 40 yard line before losing the handle on the ball with Appling recovering at their own 39 yard line.

On the possession the Indians looked as though they would hold Appling without anymore points forcing a 3rd and long with 14 seconds to go in the half. But a 28 yard pass from Jeremiah Holmes to Keyshawn Walker to the Vidalia 11 would set up a Carlos Escanlante 24 yard field goal as time expired in the half to make it 10-0.

The Indians were unable to muster any points in the 2nd half and Appling would add two more touchdowns in the 4th quarter to secure the 24-0 win.

The Indians will try and regroup during the week before heading to Twin City to take on the ECI Bulldogs Friday night at 7:30.(Pictures by Carroll Williams) 8 31 19 Reid Sign

DSC 0318 2 SmallAugust 30-- The Treutlen Vikings picked up their second win of the season with a 40 – 14 rout of the Portal Panthers behind a 6 touchdown night by Sophomore QB PJ Smiley. Smiley threw for 257 yards and 5 TD’s and ran for another TD and 48 yards in the victory. Senior Kamron Jordan had 134 yards and 4 TD’s receiving.

After both teams traded fumbles in the first quarter, Portal got on the scoreboard first on a 73 yard run by senior RB Brian Ware. The PAT was no good and the Panthers led 6 – 0. The Vikings answered with three TD passes on their next three possessions, all from Smiley to Kamron Jordan of 39, 4, and 31 yards respectively. Kicker Eric Mincey hit 2 of the 3 PAT attempts and the Vikings led 20-6 going into the half.

After trading punts on their first possessions of the second half, Treutlen extended their lead to 27 – 6 with 59 seconds left in the third quarter when QB PJ Smiley ran it in from a yard out capping a 12 play, 75 yard drive. Mincey was successful with the PAT.

Portal answered on their next possession when Ware scampered in from 11 yards out with 8:03 remaining in the fourth quarter. The two point conversion run by Ware was good and Portal had cut the lead to 27 – 14 and was gaining momentum for a late game run.

The Vikings would have none of it scoring just 2 plays later from 44 yards out when Smiley hit Jordan for the pair’s fourth TD pass connection of the night. Mincey split the uprights for a 34 – 14 lead. With 2:13 left in the game Smiley found senior WR Kalup Shivers alone in the endzone for a 7 yard TD pass. The PAT was wide right and the Vikings won 40 – 14.

The Vikings are now 2 – 0 on the season and will be at home again next Friday night to face the Twiggs County Cobras at 7:30 at Bobby Driggers Stadium. Be sure to catch all the action on Sweet Onion Country 101.7 FM and online at www.southeastgeorgiatoday.com.

August 28—The VHS Lady Indians swept the St. Vincent’s Saints Tuesday in Savannah with a pair of shutout wins. Vidalia won game one 14-0 in four innings behind a no hitter by pitcher Erika Poole. The Lady Indians won game two 10-0 in five innings with a one-hitter by pitcher Alli Taufmann. Vidalia pounded out 24 hits in the two games including a two-run homer by Toniyah Cook.

The Lady Indians improve to 7-0 in Region 2AA and 9-2 overall. Vidalia travels to Swainsboro Thursday at 5:30PM. You can hear the game on News Talk WVOP-AM 970 and 105.3 FM and streaming on southeastgeorgiatoday.com.

August 28-- The Brewton-Parker Men’s Soccer Team was defeated deep into stoppage time of the home opener by the SCAD Bees 3-2.  In the opening minutes of the match, Brewton-Parker maintained a large share of the possession, not allowing SCAD to grow into the game.  This early possession led to the first goal of the match.  A penetrating pass by Samuel Figueiro was capped off by the run of Isaiah “Monte” Lamont.  Brewton-Parker continued its dominance over the match until late into the first half.  After a concession of some cheap set pieces, SCAD equalized with 0:24 seconds remaining in the half, from a corner.  8 28 19 BPC Soccer

The second half resumed with business as usual, as Brewton-Parker had long spells on the ball.  Against the run of play, SCAD claimed a second goal from a throw-in and a clinical finish.  Half-way through the second half, Brewton-Parker’s possessional dominance made the difference, when a deflected Samuel Figueiro shot careened off Ermin Omeragic for the equalizer, and his first of the new campaign.  As the pressure began to mount, tempers began to flare with players from SCAD and Brewton-Parker receiving a flurry of yellow cards.  After a rash challenge by SCAD’s right back on Isaiah Lezama, he was shown a red card for his accumulation of yellows.  The man-advantage was short lived as Manuel Casanova lunged into a challenge and earned a second yellow, being dismissed by the official, the teams were both down to 10 men.  As both teams were setting up the subsequent set piece, the linesman flagged having adjudged that Akins Banton wrongly pushed away a SCAD attacker.  After conferring with the linesman, the center official harshly awarded a red card.  SCAD was able to take advantage of the extra man deep into the second half, scoring the go-ahead goal in the 89th minute.  

After the game, both Coach Ruiz and Coach Neumann expressed their desire to improve the outcomes for the schools and turn the attacking pressure into more positive results.  Their next opportunity comes as Brewton-Parker's Men’s Soccer team travels to Ave Maria University on Saturday, August 31st.

August 27-- Bailey Holland didn't allow a single run as the RTCA Lady Crusaders defeated Pinewood Christian 1-0 at home on Monday. Holland pitched a complete game allowing just three hits and striking out sixteen. 8 27 19 RTCA Softball

RTCA improves to 8-0 for the season.

Kinlaw toed the rubber for Pinewood Christian. She lasted six innings, allowing three hits and one run while striking out six.

Holland went 2-for-3 at the plate to lead RTCA in hits. The Lady Crusaders was sure-handed and didn't commit a single error. Tori Wright made the most plays with sixteen.

“We did not play our best softball today but good pitching and great defense and some timely hitting by Bailey and Tori we were able to scratch out a win against a good Pinewood team.” Coach Hayne Brant said.

August 26-- The VHS Indians competed in Hazlehurst Saturday in the Three Rivers Classic Cross Country meet where the Indians finished second place to Jeff Davis by 3 points and the Lady Indians finished in third place.

The boy’s race was an exciting race with Luke Palmer leading the race a majority of the way.  Luke was overcome by a runner from Toombs Co and two runners from Jeff Davis followed by Tucker Coleman and Chason Brogdon. 

“They all had strong races and competed very well.  As a coach, I am very pleased to see that Luke took the lead when the pace wasn't where he needed it to be.  He and Tucker are only sophomores and are diligent in their efforts to excel this season with their hard work and dedication.” Coach Mandy Godbee stated.

The Lady Indians placed 3rd as a team but brought home an individual champion with Sarah Owen (Pictured Left) winning the race with a time of 21.17. Sarah won the race by 50 seconds.  Kaitlyn Allen and Isabella Holloway had a good race placing them 8th and 11th.  Coach Godbee said, “We are still seeing Allie Whitaker and Ashley Hammock improve and get stronger with every race” 

Last week after Sarah's first cross country race ever, Owen was the Girl's MileSplit Georgia Athlete of the Week for Class AA.

August 26-- The JR Trippe Middle School cross country team opened up their season at the Three Rivers Classic in Hazlehurst on Saturday. With several new runners in the mix, they ran exceptionally well. Sixth grader Lake Wright led the pack for the boys finishing 10th followed by Jack Godbee and Justus Gabbard.

The girls were led by Deserae Lumley who finished 11th followed by Patty Rush and Justice Cook.

“I am proud of their hard work and dedication. I am looking forward to an excellent season of development. These young runners are working hard every day and busting through personal bests.” Coach Mandy Godbee said.8 26 19 JR Trippe MS CC

The Vidalia Heritage Eagles traveled a far way to Covington Academy on Friday to kick off their season opener. The Eagles advance to 1-0 with a 38-14 win over Covington Academy.8 26 19 VHA Football 1

The Eagles won the toss and picked to receive the ball. The Eagles within 3 minutes stole an 8-0 lead in the first quarter with a 40 yard run by James Hutcheson. The Eagles continued to play good football as they went into the half with a comfortable lead 22-6.

Coach Sitzman says “I am very proud of how this team showed up after traveling so far. I am extremely proud of how the defense showed up and played hard nose football”. A 9th grader, Ethan Sikes, had a great night for the Eagles having two interceptions and little over 70 yards in reception and rushing yards combined. Jackson Williamson also played well with a couple sacks and a reception touchdown. James Hutcheson led the offense with little over 200 yards of rushing and 45 yards in receptions.”

“We have to continue to work and get better week to week. This week is a short week to get prepared for a tough football team. We are excited to open up with our first home game against our rival school. David Emmanuel Academy shows up with a good team every year and we have to work hard this week”. Sitzman said.

The Eagles play this Thursday at Charles Wood Field in Vidalia at 7:30pm. Wear white to support the Vidalia Heritage Eagles!

FROM THE DESK OF TODD STANSBURY

Dear Georgia Tech Fans,

It’s the most exciting time of the year here on The Flats! Our student-athletes are all back on campus with the beginning of the academic year this past Monday. And, of course, our athletic year officially kicks off in just five days, when the Geoff Collins' era of Georgia Tech football begins with a date at longtime rival and defending national champion Clemson. Game time is set for 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29, and will be the first game ever aired on the brand-new ACC Network.

After Thursday’s football opener at Clemson, volleyball opens its season next weekend by hosting the Georgia Tech Invitational versus Long Beach State (Friday, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m.), Southern (Saturday, Aug. 31 at 1 p.m.) and UNC Asheville (Saturday, Aug. 31 at 7 p.m.) at O’Keefe Gym. Our men’s and women’s cross country teams also open their seasons on Saturday, Aug. 31 at the UGA Invitational in Athens.

In addition to the start of our fall seasons, we’re also proud of two great developments this week for Georgia Tech athletics!

ACC Network

The ACC Network officially launched Thursday night (Aug. 22) and is up and running as the 24/7 television home of ACC athletics. The network’s launch is a phenomenal achievement for the ACC and will greatly benefit all of its members and fans. Not only is there a financial benefit for each of the league’s 15 schools, but everyone associated with the ACC will benefit from the exposure that will be gained by having a 24/7 national network dedicated to promoting our league, our schools, our teams and, most importantly, our student-athletes. To that point, Georgia Tech is featured prominently in ACCN programming leading up to Thursday’s game at Clemson – click HERE for a list of ACCN programming that will feature the Yellow Jackets.

Regarding distribution of the ACC Network, we are pleased that there are four national providers that are carrying ACCN – DirecTV, Hulu, PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV. This means that everyone in the United States has the ability to access ACCN by subscribing to one of these national services or one of the 60-plus local cable/digital providers that is carrying the network, including Charter/Spectrum, Google Fiber and Verizon Fios.

That said, we are also aware that there are fans that can’t access ACCN because their cable/satellite/digital provider still isn’t carrying the network, including Comcast/Xfinity, Dish Network and AT&T UVerse. If your provider still isn’t carrying ACCN, we urge you to continue to call/email/contact them via social media to demand ACCN.

However, with the network already launched and the football opener at Clemson just five days away, it is now time to seriously consider making the switch to one of the four national providers that is carrying ACCN - DirecTV, Hulu, PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV. As a reminder, if your cable/satellite/digital provider doesn’t carry ACCN, you not only can’t watch ACCN on your TV, but you won’t be able to access ACCN or ACC Network Extra (ACCNX) content online via the ESPN app or WatchESPN.

Don’t get shut out! Demand that your provider carry ACCN or switch to a provider that does!

Single-Year Giving Record for A-T Fund

On Friday, we were very proud to announce that gifts and commitments to the Alexander-Tharpe Fund, our athletics department’s fundraising arm, totaled a record-setting $53.5 million for the 2019 fiscal year. To put that in perspective, the total raised from July 2018-June 2019 surpassed the previous record for single-year giving by $7.5 million!

On behalf of the entire Georgia Tech athletics family, our student-athletes and our staff, I’d like to sincerely thank everyone who contributed to this record-setting giving year – many of whom are reading this email. Your support makes it possible for our Everyday Champions to compete at the highest level of athletics while succeeding in the classroom and preparing to change the world.

These two achievements are just the tip of the iceberg with regards to all of the great things occurring here on The Flats! For more, please tune in to my podcast with the Voice of the Mountaineers Andy Demetra, which was recorded this week, and continue to scroll through this email for updates on A-T Fund, Total Person Program and our Everyday Champions.

Thank you for your support! Go Jackets!

Together We Swarm,

Todd Stansbury

Director of Athletics

TOTAL PERSON PROGRAM

 

HOSTING THE ACC’S STUDENT-ATHLETE LEADERS

Georgia Tech was the host site for the 2019 ACC Summer SAAC Meetings, which brought together student-athlete representatives from every ACC school. Part of the meetings was the ACC SAAC’s first-ever professional site tour, which included NCR, Home Depot and start-ups in Tech Square. GT’s reps were Sara Al-Khatib (swimming & diving) and Hugh Chapman (baseball).

CLEMSON LEADERSHIP SUMMIT

10 Georgia Tech student-athletes participated in the Clemson Leadership Summit, which brought together top Division I student-athletes from across the southeast. GT reps included Anne Diouf, Kierra Fletcher and Sarah Bates (women’s basketball), Hugh Chapman (baseball), Haley Unthank and Nasir Christian (track and field), Kelsey Deksheinieks and Johnathan Vater (swimming and diving) and Nami Otsuka (women’s tennis).

EVERYDAY CHAMPIONS

OGLETREE WINS U.S. AMATEUR

Georgia Tech senior golfer Andy Ogletree won the U.S. Amateur championship last Sunday, the most prestigious amateur golf title in the world. He bested more than 7,000 golfers that began vying for the title in qualifying and becomes the third GT alum to win the title, joining Bobby Jones (1924, 1925, 1927, 1928 and 1930) and Matt Kuchar (1997).

CARPENTER EARNS SINGLE-DIGIT NUMBER

Perhaps the biggest honor in head coach Geoff Collins’ football program is to receive a single-digit uniform number. Junior Tariq Carpenter worked tirelessly to earn No. 2, which he wanted to wear to honor the sacrifice his mother has made to his family and our country.

August 24-- The Treutlen Vikings opened the 2019 season in dominant fashion as they defeated the ACE Charter Gryphons 31 – 0 at Thompson Stadium in Macon Friday night despite numerous lightning delays.

The Vikings finally kicked things off after a one hour and five minute lightning delay to start the game. ACE won the toss and took the opening kickoff into Viking territory before their drive ended on back to back sacks on third and fourth downs by Viking senior linebacker Jaylan Chamblee ended the threat.

Treutlen then took their opening possession 52 yards in 7 plays, capped by an 11 yard touchdown run by QB Sabo Mitchell. QB PJ Smiley found WR Tim Blair for two point conversion pass to give Treutlen an 8 – 0 lead. Immediately following the score was another 30 minute lightning delay.

On the Gryphons next possession, QB Blake Smith floated a pass out into the right flat and Viking cornerback Tim Blair read the play perfectly intercepting the pass and ran untouched 25 yards into the end zone for a Treutlen touchdown. The PAT was wide right and Treutlen led 14 – 0 just 5:15 into the game.

On the ensuing kickoff, the Vikings pinned ACE Charter deep in their own territory after a long kick by Danny Clements and good coverage by the Vikings. With first and ten at their own 11, the Viking defense drove them backwards on three plays, forcing a punt attempt at the ACE Charter 1 yard line. On the attempt, the ball was snapped over the ACE punter’s head out of the back of the endzone giving Treutlen a safety and two points, extending their lead to 16 – 0 with 2:10 left in the first quarter.

Treutlen drove their next possession deep into Gryphon territory but stalled at the 1 yard line. Another bad snap by the ACE center on their second play of the drive resulted in another safety and an 18 – 0 lead for the Vikings with 6:48 left before halftime. Four plays later, Viking QB PJ Smiley hit senior wideout Kalup Shivers on a nice pass down the left sideline for a 32 yard touchdown. The PAT attempt was wide right and Treutlen led 24 - at the half.

The Viking defense took over in the second half forcing 4 Gryphon punts and forcing them to turn it over on downs once. Treutlen added another score on a 30 yard TD pass from Sabo Mitchell to Chris Mincey with 6:47 left in the third quarter. Danny Clements hit the PAT to give the Vikings the 31 – 0 road victory.

The Vikings will have their home opener versus Portal next Friday night with kickoff set for 7:30. Be sure to catch all the action on Sweet Onion Country 101.7 FM and online at www.southeastgeorgiatoday.com.

August 23—The RTCA Middle-School Lady Crusaders defeated First Presbyterian Christian Academy 15-2 on the road in Hinesville Thursday behind a no-hitter from pitcher Meredith Durden. Durden (Below) had ten strikeouts and only one walk in three Innings. The second inning was a big one for the Lady Crusaders who scored seven runs.

We still have a long way to go, but we are playing well and getting better each game.” Coach Hayne Brant said.

8 23 19 Rileigh RobinsonAugust 23-- The Vidalia Lady Indians came back from a 3-1 deficit and scored four unanswered runs to defeat the Jeff Davis Yellow Jackets 5-3 Thursday at The Reservation. The win moves the Lady Indians to 5-0 in Region 2AA play and 7-1 overall.

She surrendered eight runs on seven hits over four and a third innings, striking out two. Wright led RTCA with three hits in three at bats.

August 16--  Georgia Tech Athletic Director Todd Stansbury has a message for Yellow Jacket fans.

Jacket Fans,

As many of you know, the ACC Network officially launches in less than one week – Thursday, Aug. 22.

The launch of the ACC Network is a momentous occasion in the long and storied history of our conference. And, of course, Georgia Tech has the honor of being a part of the very first football game to ever be televised on the ACC Network, when our Yellow Jackets face longtime rival and defending national champion Clemson on ACCN on Thursday, Aug. 29.

In addition to the highly anticipated football opener versus Clemson, Georgia Tech will be featured prominently throughout the first weeks of ACCN programming. Football head coach Geoff Collins will be on the network’s official launch show on Aug. 22 and the very first episode of ACCN’s morning show, Packer and Durham (co-hosted by GT Sports Hall of Famer Wes Durham), on Aug. 26. An all-access show chronicling the early days of Georgia Tech football’s 2019 fall camp will air exclusively on ACCN in the days leading up to the opener against Clemson. And not only will the Yellow Jackets’ football season opener versus Clemson be televised exclusively on the ACC Network, but the Sept. 7 home opener against South Florida will also be shown exclusively on ACCN.

However, to see ANY ACC Network programming, your cable/satellite/digital provider MUST carry ACCN. If your provider does not carry the network, you cannot watch ACCN programming, either on your TV or online via WatchESPN or the ESPN app.

Many providers are already committed to carrying ACCN, including DIRECTV, Hulu, PlayStation Vue, YouTubeTV and Charter/Spectrum (for a full list of providers in your area, visit getaccn.com).

However, there are still providers that haven’t committed to carrying the network yet, including Comcast/Xfinity, Dish Network and AT&T U-Verse.

If your provider is not yet committed to carrying the ACC Network, I encourage you to:

  1. Call, email and/or reach out to them via social media and demand ACCN right away.
  2. Consider switching to a provider that is already committed to carrying ACCN. DIRECTV, Hulu, PlayStation Vue and YouTubeTV are all available NATIONALLY – anyone in any area of the United States has these four options to consider if your current local cable/digital provider is not committed to carrying ACCN.

Georgia Tech, the ACC and ESPN remain confident that the success of the ACC Network will eventually ensure its availability on all providers. But we need your help in making your voice heard to providers that are not already committed to carrying ACCN. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to watch all of the great Georgia Tech programming that will be available from the moment the ACC Network launches on Thursday, Aug. 22.

Thank you and Go Jackets!

August 6—8 5 19 ThompkinsCongratulations to former Vidalia High School standout basketball player Ramel Thompkins who is heading Slovakia to play professional basketball. He is the first Vidalia Indian to play professional basketball.Thompkins signed with team BK Spisska' Nova' Ves', a member of the Slovak Basketball League, the highest tier level of men's basketball in Slovakia. 8 5 19 Thompkins 2

The 6’7” 202lb. small forward led Vidalia to Final Four appearances in 2012 and 2014, and a State Championship Game in 2012. Thompkins played college basketball at USC Upstate where he averaged 10.7 points per game, 4.2 rebounds per game. He had a 72% free throw percentage and shot 38% from the 3-point line and blocked 33 shots his senior year. Thompkins went undrafted in the recent draft to finish school and earn his college degree. He leaves for Europe August 8th.

“It’s like a dream come true! It is something that I have thought about all my life. I am happy just to get closer to one of my ultimate goals of playing in the NBA. I think my game has evolved into how they play in the NBA today. My main focus is working at a high level on my defense and shooting three pointers and hope that carries over.” Thompkins said.

VHS Head Coach Tommy Dalley said, “He has come a long way from when I first saw him as a little skinny kid playing in middle-school. He is one of those kids hard and took advantage of his opportunities. He got to go off to school and he stayed and had to go through some adversity, but that is part of it. One of my proudest moments was to be able to go and watch him play and finish school, and that is what you want as a coach for a guy who was a big part of your program. We are extremely excited for him and hopefully what it brings for him and his future.”
