MPS schools shut out on first day of Central Regional

Thursday wasn’t a very good day for MPS programs as all four teams in action ended their seasons abruptly.

No other school system in the state took a beating the way the Montgomery County school system did, although there is a chance of redemption with the boys and girls teams from Carver and Sidney Lanier in action on Friday.

AHSAA GIRLS SUB-REGIONALS: MA, Catholic coast to wins; Carver advances on buzzer-beater

The Montgomery Academy girls knew Monday’s sub-regional matchup with Indian Springs wouldn’t be challenging but it didn’t keep them from challenging themselves.

In the first six minutes, Indian Springs made just 1-of-6 shots and committed 14 turnovers, so the Eagles’ 25-2 lead took care of the outcome. Lost in the sloppy play and the substitutions that limited the final score to 59-25 was the play of junior center Caroline Kirkham, who had eight points in the first quarter and eight more in the third to finish with 16.

Survive and advance.

That might have been the theme for the Catholic girls in the Class 4A Area 4 championship game in the Catholic gym on Friday night.

It wasn’t their best performance, but a 38-37 win over BTW Magnet was enough to help the Lady Knights capture the area title and host a sub-regional game on Monday. Catholic will play Ashford at home tonight at 7 p.m.

Chester Pruitt didn’t take the usual path to a state championship.

The Evangel Academy guard went from a backup role with the Lions to transferring to another school, from sitting out in December to earn most valuable player honors on Monday.

The Kyle Edwards’ underhanded flips were special, the Artavious Billups’ pullup jumpers were impressive and the Slate Garmany shots from across the street were crowd pleasing, but none of that was the underlying reason for the 70-42 rout of Autauga Academy that gave Macon East Academy an undefeated season and the AISA Class AA state championship.

There’s a rivalry between Montgomery Academy and Trinity, but it’s even more intense between brothers Garrett and Grant Sanderson. That’s because Garrett plays for Montgomery Academy, while Grant plays for Trinity.

NSD 2017: Ruggs follows advice of fallen friend and picks Alabama

The powerful presentation of a video made the announcement for Robert E. Lee High star Henry Ruggs, III on Wednesday, but there were two separate endings filmed because he couldn’t choose between Alabama and Florida State.

The video conveyed the loss Ruggs felt last March as a junior when senior Rod Scott, a teammate on the Generals’ basketball team, was killed in an automobile accident on the way to the state basketball tournament in Birmingham. It depicts Ruggs working out in the weight room and on the football field, along with clips of him visiting his friends’ graveside.
