WEST POINT -- It sounds so simple.
MACON -- This season was about continuing a tradition for Charles Hughes.
LaTerrica Jefferson completed the turnaround Friday afternoon. Nearly four years ago, Jefferson was a ninth-grader with a load of potential. At the time, basketball was a consideration, but it wasn't something the Columbus High School student believed could help put her on the path to a college scholarship.
HAMILTON -- Jeremy Lindsey believes in a winning state of mind. Maybe it was a season's worth of hounding from his Hamilton High School track and field coaches that helped the senior develop a positive frame of mind.
Evan McElrath has thought about playing golf in college for a long time. McElrath admits the process has been stressful at times with college coaches watching from the sidelines. He also has worked his ways through the ups and downs of every-day life that make it difficult to focus on golf.

For the second-consecutive season, the screams from a bus leaving Lady Trojan Field will ring in the ears of the New Hope High School players.

CARROLLTON, Ala. -- The Pickens Academy baseball and softball teams had plenty of ways to turn for contributions this season. Six of the standouts for both teams were recognized recently for their performances with Alabama Independent School Association All-Star awards.

Don't let the record fool you. The New Hope High School baseball team has experienced its share of adversity this season. The Trojans haven't had to recover from devastating injuries. Instead, coach Lee Boyd's team had to survive a late-season swoon that nearly derailed a solid start.
Wanted: Creative, self-starter who can help four New Hope High School softball players find a nickname that captures their skills and the relationship they share.
CARROLLTON, Ala. -- All Hunter Booth wanted was a chance. Like a lot of high school seniors, the Pickens Academy standout wanted to continue his football career in college.
