BILLINGSLEY -There were just two weeks remaining until the 2017 season opener and the Billingsley Bears found a quarterback, a running game and the pieces of an offensive and defensive line puzzle that could possibly transform the Bears into a playoff team.

Now, the only thing missing is a football stadium.

On Friday, school officials were informed that Mims Field, the site of some of Billingsley High’s greatest triumphs, including a win over Parrish for the 1992 state championship, is unsafe and cannot be used for the 2017 football season.

After holding Valwood School to minus-15 total yards and without a first down in the first half, no one could have expected Autauga Academy to maintain the same level of intensity in the second half of Saturday’s meeting in the second annual Southeastern Commission of Independent Schools’ Kickoff Classic at Cramton Bowl.

The Generals came out flat in the third quarter and the Valiants took advantage of it, scoring a pair of quick touchdowns to pull back into the contest before the Generals answered with a late touchdown to secure a 38-29 victory to extend their winning streak to 14 games.

They followed with an early practice in the heat and humidity of the morning.

Micala Fisanick came into Wednesday’s Alabama All-Star Sports Week basketball competition hoping to showcase her shooting ability in the Auburn University Montgomery Physical Education Complex.

The Saint James senior-to-be came off the bench to open the second quarter and nailed the first 3-pointer she took, but didn’t make another basket the remainder of the game. Her next shot, a 15-footer from the left side of the court, was followed by a pair of 3-point misses as shots, in addition to playing time, was in short supply.

His night started with a strikeout on three pitches.

And while the next at-bat didn’t come until the seventh inning, T.R. Robertson made the most of his night in the Alabama All-Star Sports Week baseball game, collecting a hit in his final two at-bats while playing error-free ball at four positions in the field to collect most valuable player honors for the South squad on Tuesday night at Riverwalk Stadium.

The South salvaged a split in the series that has been dominated through the years by their North counterparts. The North girls, coached by Mortimer Jordan’s Shawn Maze and Josh Graham of Lawrence County, now hold a 25-10-3 edge after Tuesday’s split. The South was coached by Donna Sunnycalb of Saraland and Matt Hendricks of Auburn.

T.R. Robertson should be prepared for whatever happens in the Alabama All-Star Sports Week baseball games that will be held Tuesday evening at Riverwalk Stadium.

Whether he’s asked to play outfield, infield or pitch, he’s done it before. In fact, in 2015, the Saint James junior played every position on the diamond except first base.

After overseeing what is arguably the most successful season in the history of LAMP athletics, principal Matthew Monson is aiming for higher goals in 2017-18.

The Class 4A program likely will never field a football program and doesn’t have a golf team, but qualified or made an impact in eight of the 15 sports that have championship play, reaching the semifinals in baseball and winning the school’s first-ever sports title in boys’ cross country in 2016-17.
