POWER RANKINGS
As April comes around, we release our final regular season Power Rankings for baseball and boys/girls soccer. Habersham boys and Dawson/Lumpkin/Towns/White girls are playing great ball right now. On the diamond, it's still Stephens County at the head of the pack...and don't count out Rabun County who's coming on STRONG!

#CollegeSpotlight is on Laken Chambers, former Union County star pitcher and infielder. It's a small sample size, but she's doing more of the same for the #2-ranked UNG Saints, posting a .700 average and 0.71 ERA. No wonder she is a BLITZ Hall of Famer!
