  • Brookwood Basketball 4-0 in Region Weekend

    Brookwood Basketball went 4-0 in an important Friday to Saturday quick turnaround, with the Lady Warriors and Warriors each winning a Region game on the road and at home.
     
    Friday night at Tiftarea Academy, the Lady Warriors jumped out to an 18-4 lead. After Tiftarea battled throughout to cut into the large deficit, Brookwood led 48-41 with just under 6:00 minutes to go in the 4th Quarter. A quick 9-0 Lady Warrior run ignited by defensive rebounding, crisp outlet passes, and fast break layups put the game out of reach. Sophomore Christy James had 10 rebounds and 6 steals, while Erin Lewis and Holland Walker each dished 4 assists in the 61-46 Brookwood win.
     
    In the Boys game, Brookwood led the Tiftarea Panthers 35-19 at halftime after using a 19-6 2nd Quarter to seize control. An 8-0 Warrior run to start the 3rd Quarter effectively iced the game. Brookwood went on to win 68-42 behind 15 points and 11 rebounds from Sam Barrett. Sophomore Kelton Lewis and Freshman Zack Counts scored 11 and 9, respectively.

    At home on Saturday afternoon, the Lady Warriors improved to 4-1 in Region play with a 44-42 win over Southland Academy. The Lady Warriors led throughout the close contest, following Ella Grace Squires 6 rebounds and 3 steals.
     
    The Warriors finished the weekend sweep in the Boys game, improving to 5-0 in Region play with their 46-41 win over the Raiders. Dallas Forsyth went 4 of 5 from behind the 3-point line and led with 15 points. Sam Barrett finished with 6 points and 10 rebounds. The Warriors are now 24-4 in their last 28 games against GISA competition.
     
    Tuesday night Brookwood hosts Deerfield-Windsor in two matchups with big impact on the AAA-3 standings. The Lady Knights (6-0) and Knights (5-1) come to Thomasville for two games playing for first place. Girls tip-off is at 6:15 with Boys action to follow.

  • Lauderdale & Boltja Commit to Division I Programs!

    Congratulations to Jacob Lauderdale and Jack Boltja, both recently committing to play collegiate athletics at Division I programs! Jacob '21 verbally committed to play Baseball at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina and Jack '21 has committed to Golf at Georgia Southern in Statesboro.

    Lauderdale will be a Junior and key component of the Warrior baseball team this Spring on the pitcher's mound and in the infield. Coastal Carolina baseball has become one of the most consistent winning programs in the country, making the NCAA Tournament 16 times since 2001. Competing out of the Big South Conference, the Chanticleers have been rewarded with multiple Regional host sites, #1 seeds, and broke through in 2016 winning the College World Series with wins over Florida, Texas Tech, TCU, and Arizona.

    Boltja, also still only a Junior, will help lead a talented Warrior Golf team again this Spring as they compete for another Region title and eye a State Championship. Georgia Southern Golf has experienced strong success the last few years. Competing out of the Sun Belt Conference, the Eagles finished 4th out of 13 teams at the Stanford Regional in Palo Alto, California last year and qualified for the NCAA Championships where they finished 26th in the nation. In 4 of the last 5 seasons, the Eagles have finished 1st or 2nd in the Sun Belt Conference. 

    Both can sign their National Letters of Intent in their Senior year.
  • Brookwood Basketball Sweeps Valwood on Road

    Brookwood Basketball went on the road for Region contests for the second time in 48 hours Thursday night, coming away with two victories at rival Valwood.
     
    The Lady Warriors ran away with the early game in dominating fashion, leading 28-8 at the end of the 1st Quarter and 41-17 at halftime. Brookwood cruised in the second half to win 64-23. It was a balanced effort for the Lady Warrior roster, as no one needed to play more than 15 minutes in the game. Mollie Vick had 4 assists, 5 steals, and 0 turnovers on the night. Christy James led in rebounding with 6. The aggressive Lady Warrior defense forced 37 Valwood turnovers and unselfish offense tallied 16 assists. Brookwood improved to 2-1 in Region play.
     
    The Boys game was much tighter throughout. Sloppy Brookwood finishes to the 2nd and 3rd Quarters allowed Valwood to shrink double-digit Warrior leads in each frame. Brookwood led 26-20 at Halftime and 47-45 going into the 4th Quarter. In a game that featured multiple momentum swings, Brookwood made enough plays down the stretch to win. Trailing 56-57, Sam Barrett knocked down the go-ahead three pointer off a Harrison Owens assist with less than a minute to go. On the ensuing possession, Owens made a steal and was immediately fouled. The Senior swished both free throws to put the Warriors up 4, 61-57, with 16 seconds left. Another Owens steal finished the game on the next possession.
     
    Barrett finished with 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists. Owens scored 14 to go with 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Sophomore Kelton Lewis chipped in 12 points and freshman Garrett Ledford tallied 11. Brookwood is now 3-0 in Region play.
     
    Brookwood hosts Berrien High School in the Beverly Athletic Center next Tuesday. Girls tip-off is at 6:00 p.m. with Boys game to follow.
  • Warrior Golf & Tennis Have New Coaches!

    This Spring, the Brookwood Golf and Tennis teams will both be under new leadership with some familiar faces. Wallace Marsh will transition from coaching Tennis to leading Golf, while Tom Harrison becomes the Head Coach of Tennis.

    Wallace Marsh, Head Golf Coach 
    Marsh played golf at Warren County High School in McMinnville, TN.  Though he played different sports at the collegiate level, he is very much aware of what goes into developing a successful golf program.  Wallace's sister was a standout golfer in the state of Tennessee, ultimately signing Division I scholarship at Tennessee Tech. Though Wallace is new to the Brookwood Golf program, he understands its success and tradition.  His brother-in-law, Lee Benton (2005), played golf at Birmingham Southern, and his sister-in-law, Mary Elizabeth Benton (2015), played at Sewanee. Wallace looks forward to the 2020 season and continuing to develop the program. Warrior Golf returns their top six scorers from last year's Region Champion team, which finished third at the GISA State Match.

    Tom Harrison, Head Tennis Coach 
    Tom is a graduate of Florida State University where he played football. He has been USTA league captain and competed in several leagues and tournaments. Tom served as president of the Glen Arven Tennis Association for ten years. He is a USTA tournament director and has directed the annual rotary and Glen Arven Country Club junior tournaments. Tom is a partner with Lanigan and Associates P.C. He is the father of two state champion tennis players, Thomas (2018) and Alden (2021). Warrior Tennis returns a talented core, including seniors Andrew Cooper and Alex Kadel with juniors Nic Kadel and Alden Harrison. They will look to repeat as Region Champions and contend at both the State Tournaments individually and as a team.
  • Warrior Basketball Sweeps Brooks County

    Brookwood Basketball swept Brooks County High School Saturday night on the road in Quitman.
     
    The Lady Warriors took the first game of the night by a final score of 68-58. After trailing in parts of the 1st Half, the Lady Warriors press started to wear down the Lady Trojans for a big surge right before the halftime. The Lady Warriors separated late, protecting the ball and making free throws down the stretch to secure the win. Christy James had 7 rebounds, Holland Walker led with 4 steals, Walker and Mollie Vick both dished out 6 assists, and Ella Grace Squires blocked 3 shots.
     
    In Boys action, the Warriors overcame the loss of All-Region guard JP Chapman to injury Friday night and rallied in a quick turnaround. A slow start while trying to find their footing without Chapman, a 3-year starter, led to a 7-point deficit at the end of the 1st Quarter. From there, the Warriors looked inside and scored in the paint. Jacob Hilson scored a career-high 21 points and Sam Barrett added 13. Harrison Owens led with 6 assists. A trapping Warrior defense held Brooks County to just 10 points after halftime in the 46-33 win.
