Yesterday, the Dragonettes varsity basketball team made the trip up to Southeast Whitfield one more time to take on the Lady Generals of Heritage in the 7AAAA Region Tournament Girls Consolation Game to determine the region’s third seed. These two teams split during the regular season and the third meeting did not disappoint. (more…)
Last Tuesday, the Dragons traveled to take on the Generals of Heritage in 7AAAA action. Pickens, who’ve had a difficult time the last several games, looked to turn things around last Tuesday. The Dragons are the only team to have beaten Heritage in region play and looked to pull off the “upset” and get the sweep. (more…)
Last Tuesday, the Dragonettes varsity basketball team traveled to Ringgold to take on the Lady Generals of Heritage in 7AAAA region action. Pickens came into the game seeking it’s third straight win, a fifth win out of it’s last six games, and a season sweep of the Lady Generals. (more…)
Last Friday, the Dragonettes varsity basketball team hosted the Lady Canes of Cartersville in a big 7AAAA match up. Last month, Cartersville was able to come away with a win over the ‘Nettes at their place and Pickens looked to return the favor at their house. (more…)
The Dragons varsity basketball team hosted the Bobcats of Gilmer in the Dragons Den for a region 7AAAA battle. Pickens, coming off of an incredible comeback against Heritage on Tuesday, looked to keep the momentum going against their rivals to the north. Dragon Nation would have a lot to cheer about Friday evening.
Last Tuesday, the Dragons Den played host to a region match up between the Dragons and the visiting Generals of Heritage. Pickens had an 0-1 record in region coming into this ball game while Heritage entered 6-1 overall and 2-0 in region. That would not stop the Dragons from pulling off the “upset.”
Last Tuesday, The Nettes were back in action as they hosted the Lady Generals of Heritage in region action in the Dragons Den. Pickens, coming off a non region win against West Hall, looked to continue their good play and move above .500 on the season and stay perfect in region play. The Nettes were able to do just that.
Yesterday, The Dragons finally returned to the Dragons Den to play a true home game for the first time since November 18th to host the Spartans of West Hall in non region action. Pickens, coming off of a tough loss to LaFayette Tuesday night, looked to get back on track before returning to region play next week. Dragon Nation were treated to a great afternoon of high school basketball.
Yesterday, The Nettes varsity basketball team came back to the Dragons Den for the first time since November 18th as they hosted the Lady Spartans of West Hall in non region action. Pickens, coming off of an impressive win in LaFayette on Tuesday, looked to continue their good play against the Lady Spartans. Defense would be the story of this game.
A big week for Pickens High School football started when the JV Dragons defeated Lumpkin County last Thursday 41-34 to finish the season at 6-1 and capture the league championship. Friday night, the varsity Dragons traveled to Catoosa County to take on the Generals of Heritage in what was a crucial game for both teams’ playoff hopes. The Dragons came in with a 3-1 region record, while the Generals had a 2-2 region record. It had been 3,275 days since the Dragons last appearance in the state playoffs, that number would fall to 0.
The Pickens High School Dragons football team traveled to LaFayette High School to take on the Ramblers. This game was the first road game for Pickens since September 19th. It was also be the first meeting between the two teams. LaFayette’s Homecoming would serve as the backdrop for this game; however, the celebration was short lived as the Dragons’ offense roasted the Ramblers to the tune of 69 points, en route Pickens picking up the 69-34 win.
Last Thursday, the Nettes softball team hosted the #2 team in 4A Lady Generals of Heritage. Prior to the game, the two teams came together in the infield to release red, white, and blue balloons in remembrance of the 9/11 attacks. (more…)
