Well, we had a beautiful week as far as the weather then on Sunday morning we woke up to rain, low temperatures and wind. Some people seem to think this is Blackberry Winter. I don’t know, but it sure is different from what we’ve been use to. Maybe the wind will dry the ground out so people can get their garden spots ready.

The JV Diamond Dogs improved to 2-3 for their season this week with a 10-6 win against Cedar Shoals on Monday. Morgan County lost both of their games in last Saturday’s doubleheader against Oconee County.
Falling 4-0 in the first game against Oconee County, Kyle Triplett managed to give up only two hits and four earned runs.

Morgan County’s Lady Dogs golf team continued to post successful results both as a team and individually, picking up wins over Greene County last Tuesday and Monroe Area on Monday and taking part in the Georgia Peach Tournament at Hard Labor Creek on Saturday.
Greene County arrived with a four-girl team, only one of whom could be considered comparable with Lady Dogs Lynne Laseter and Amanda Poland. After eight holes, Laseter turned in a low score of 43, followed closely by a Lad
It was a groundbreaking week for the Diamond Dogs (1-6, 1-1) as they posted their first win of the season over Monticello last Friday afternoon.
Unfortunately, Morgan County was unable to hold on to two tentative leads in their two games on Saturday, and lost to Washington-Wilkes and Monroe in a road series.
Friday’s 14-8 win against Monticello was the first region game for the Dogs, and was described as a "very important" step by Coach Jay Eason.
