  • Boys Soccer Captures Win over FPD in Macon

    Warrior Soccer captured a big win on the road Saturday night in Macon, defeating First Presbyterian Day School by the final score of 1-0. The unassisted goal by Nathan Yokley was the only score needed to secure the win in a tight, defensive game.

    Coach Foy remarked, "The boys had a very strong performance from start to finish controlling the game. We could have scored more goals as we created a lot of great chances, but the FPD goalkeeper had an outstanding game making over 8 strong saves. The boys finally got their reward for all their hard work."

    The win is the first for the boys on the season, as they improve to 1-2-1 on the year. The next Varsity contest will be next Thursday, March 28 against Deerfield-Windsor.

  • Both Warrior Basketball Teams Fall in AAA Quarterfinal

    The Lady Warrior and Warrior Basketball programs both finished successful seasons with tough defeats in their respective GISA AAA Quarterfinal matchups.

    On Friday, the Lady Warriors were defeated by defending State Champion Pinewood Christian Academy. A cold-shooting 1st Quarter saw the girls fall behind by 10 and forced Brookwood to play from a deficit the rest of the way. A strong 2nd Quarter from Brookwood tightened the game, only trailing by a small margin at halftime by the score of 17 to 20.

    The third Quarter saw Pinewood expand their lead to as many as 13, but the Lady Warriors continued to fight back - narrowing the deficit to 4 by the end of the period. The Lady Warriors were unable to carry enough momentum in the 4th, falling by a final score of 49-37. Holland Walker led the team in scoring with 17 points, Ann Murray Jackson netted 9 points for the game.

    It was the first trip to the Quarterfinals for Lady Warrior Basketball since 2013. They finished their successful season with 16 wins against a tough schedule. Key highlights included ending Westwood's 35-game winning streak, going 4-0 at home against Region opponents, wins over much larger schools from Tallahassee such as Chiles and Leon, and a third consecutive appearance in the Region Championship game. The Lady Warriors will lose leading scorer and captain Jordan Thompson to graduation. She will continue her basketball career at Thomas University as a student-athlete.

    On Saturday, the Boys made their trip to Macon to face Bethlehem Christian Academy. In front of a large crowd, the Warriors and Knights went head-to-head in a closely contested game that came down to the wire. Falling behind by 7 in the 2nd Quarter, the biggest lead for either team the entire game, Brookwood clawed back to within 1 immediately to start the 3rd Quarter on a Jack Boltja made 3-pointer. From there, it was a one-possession game the rest of the way. Entering the 4th Quarter, Brookwood still had not taken the lead back and trailed 32-33.

    The game went into Overtime, tied at 41-41. Harrison Owens drove to the basket and converted a tough layup plus the bonus free-throw to give Brookwood a 44-41 lead early in the extra frame. With Brookwood ahead 45-43, Bethlehem Christian made a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left to take the lead. Brookwood had one final shot that didn't fall, ending the season with a tough 45-46 loss at the hands of the Knights.

    It was the first trip to the Quarterfinals since 2011 for Warrior Basketball. They finish their successful season with a final record of 18-11 (6-2) while playing a challenging schedule. Key highlights included a win over Brooks County, two wins at the Freeport (FL) Christmas Tournament, winning both the Region's regular season (6-2 record) and post-season tournament - the first Region Championships for Warrior Basketball since 2011. The reward was hosting a 1st Round playoff game in front of a packed Beverly Athletic Center and defeating Dominion Christian 63-50. The Warriors will lose the important trio of Kurtis Brown, Jacob Atkinson, and Zack Milberg to graduation.

  • Lady Warrior Hoops Heads to Playoffs, Eyes a Return to GSW

Brookwood led from start to finish, leading 13-10 at the end of the 1st Quarter after making back to back 3s. The Warriors controlled a 24-21 lead into the lockerroom at halftime.

  • Region Champs! Warriors Come Back Twice in Two Nights to win Region, Earn Host Site in 1st Round of State Playoffs this Wednesday

    The Warriors overcame travel frustrations and some large deficits Thursday and Friday, but came back both nights to defeat Southland Academy and Tiftarea Academy to win the GISA AAA-3 Region Tournament.

    Despite being the 1-seed for the weekend the Warriors had to travel nearly two hours to Americus as Georgia Southwestern State hosted the tournament. Facing the hometown Southland Raiders, falling behind by 14 in the 2nd Quarter was not the start the Warriors wanted.

    The 8-1 Brookwood stretch late in the 2nd Quarter, capitalized by a Sam Barrett 3 right before the buzzer, pulled the Warriors to within single digits at 20-27. Brookwood settled in offensively after halftime and took a 48-41 lead midway through the 4th Quarter. The Raiders took advantage of Brookwood’s foul trouble and were able to drive it the rim late, resulting in a three-point play by Southland's Max Foster to force overtime at 50-50.

    Jack Boltja responded with a floater in the lane to tie it at 52 on the second possession of the overtime period. After another Raider basket, Boltja struck again with the go-ahead three-pointer to give Brookwood a 55-54 advantage with less than 2 minutes to play. JP Chapman sank both free throws to put the Warriors ahead 57-54 with 10 seconds left. Jacob Atkinson applied full court pressure on Foster, who finished with a game-high 21 points for the Raiders, forcing a missed a 3-pointer as time expired for the Warriors to advance. Harrison Owens finished with 14 points and 15 rebounds. Barrett and Kurtis Brown each had 10 points.

    After a 1:00 AM arrival back in Thomasville early Friday morning and driving to Americus again Friday after school, the sluggish Warriors couldn’t get the lid off the rim to start Friday’s championship game. Trailing by 18 in the 2nd Quarter, the Warriors found themselves facing an uphill climb again.

    By halftime, the 18-point deficit was already cut to 12 courtesy a 6-0 Brookwood run. For the second night in a row, the Warriors were a different team in the 3rd, outpacing the Panthers up the floor in a dominant 25-11 quarter to take a 37-35 lead going into the 4th. Brookwood shot 18 of 23 in the 2nd Half as a team from the free-throw line, a major difference in the game. Harrison Owens finished with 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists. JP Chapman posted 13 points of his own in the 51-45 win. It’s the Warriors’ first Region championship since 2008.

    “Both nights were absolute team wins. Great plays by so many different players. Positive team energy from everyone. Proud of the guys for taking advantage of their opportunity. We’re excited to host Wednesday night,” said Coach Giudice.

    The Warriors host three visiting teams on Wednesday, as they face Dominion Christian from Marietta at 7:30 p.m. in the Beverly Athletic Center. In the 6:00 p.m. game, Frederica Academy will take on Bethlehem Christian. The two winners would match up in the 2nd Round on Saturday in Macon.

  • Basketball Sends Seniors Out in Style, Beat Southland in Dramatic Fashion

    The two Brookwood basketball programs capped off the regular season in dramatic fashion, with the Lady Warriors and Warriors both defeating Southland Academy on Friday night in close contests. The Senior Night victories capped a perfect Region record at home for the two teams, as they combined to go 8-0 in the Beverly Athletic Center against GISA AAA-3 opponents.

    In the first game of the evening, the Lady Warriors’ defense won a game of contrasting styles. Facing Southland’s slower-paced, half-court game Brookwood came away with a 47-39 win. After trailing 7-9 at the end of the 1st Quarter, Brookwood took control with a 15-2 run to start the second frame and maintained that lead the rest of the way.

    The Lady Warriors were led in scoring by TU signee Jordan Thompson’s 13-point night and Mollie Vick’s 10, all of which came in the first half for the junior point guard to spark the 22-13 halftime lead. An Erin Lewis made three-pointer gave Brookwood their largest lead of the game late in the 3rd Quarter, a 28-15 advantage. Thompson was also a standout defensively with five steals, Vick facilitated the offense with five assists, and Lewis scored 9 points - all from behind the 3-point arc.The win against Southland gives the Lady Warriors (14-10, 5-3) a win over each Region opponent this season.

    The Lady Warriors will return to action in the AAA-3 Region Tournament at Georgia Southwestern University in Americus on Thursday against Deerfield-Windsor. Tip-off is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.

    To see highlights of the Brookwood win, Click Here!

    In the night’s final game, Brookwood needed an extra four minutes to down the visiting Raiders in overtime by the final score of 60-56. A back and forth first half saw the Warriors take a 23-16 advantage late in the 2nd quarter from working the inside-outside combination of Kurtis Brown and JP Chapman. Brown’s second foul sent the senior big man to the bench and Brookwood fell flat offensively with turnovers and cold-shooting. A 14-0 Southland run spanned the closing minutes of the 2nd quarter and the first part of the 3rd to put the Warriors behind 23-30.

    Brookwood switched to full-court pressure to flip momentum and it paid off. 8th Grader Garrett Ledford provided a spark off the bench early in the 4th Quarter. The lefty guard knocked down a game-tying three-pointer and followed it up in a matter of seconds with a steal and score in transition to put the Warriors up 42-40. Harrison Owens sank two free throws with 45 seconds left to tie the game at 50 all. Owens’ started the overtime period with a 3-pointer for Brookwood to go up 53-50 and then assisted J.P. Chapman’s layup on a backdoor cut to lead 57-53 with 1:30 left. Leading 58-56 with 7 seconds remaining, Owens finished it off at the free-throw sinking two more foul shots to put the game out of reach at 60-56.

    Chapman led the way on both ends of the floor with a 23 point, 9 rebound, 4 assist, and 4 steal performance. Owens tallied 12 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 5 steals. Kurtis Brown finished with 15 points inside.

    Brookwood (15-10, 6-2) will return to action as the #1-seed in the AAA-3 Region Tournament at Georgia Southwestern University in Americus at 8:30 p.m. Thursday. They will face the winner of Tuesday’s play-in game between Valwood and Southland.

  • Warrior Hoops Sweeps Valwood, Preps for Senior Night Friday

    The two Brookwood basketball programs went on the road Tuesday night and came home with runaway victories.

    The Lady Warriors started the evening with a dominant first half, using their full-court press to speed up the tempo. Defense and rebounding ignited the offense, as Brookwood was attacking the rim in transition from the tip to aid a 27-5 run in the second quarter and control a 50-17 halftime lead. Eleven players appeared in the scoring column, while Holland Walker was perfect from the field in scoring her 13 points. Erin Lewis and Jordan Thompson each scored 10, primarily in the first half. Ella Grace Squires and Christy James, both freshmen, saw significant minutes and each grabbed 10 rebounds in the 69-31 win.

    Brookwood will play host to Southland Academy for Senior Night this Friday. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. with Jordan Thompson, the team's lone senior, to be honored after the game.

    Seeding for next week's Region Tournament is locked on the Girls side. Even with a Brookwood victory against the Lady Raiders (6-1), Southland will enter next week's tournament as the 1-seed. Brookwood is guaranteed to play the Lady Knights of Deerfield-Windsor in Thursday's first semifinal game at Georgia Southwestern University. The two split the regular season meetings, with Brookwood dominant in a 69-40 home victory in the Beverly Athletic Center. Tip-off is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.

    In Boys action last night, the Warriors featured a balanced scoring attack in the paint and from beyond the three-point line. Harrison Owens' three-pointer at the buzzer to go into halftime put the Warriors ahead for good with a 42-26 lead. Brookwood was intent on pushing the pace offensively and it showed in the 86-51 win. All five starters reached double figures in the scoring column, the type of balance the Warriors have focused on having throughout the year. Owens and JP Chapman led the way with 19 and 16 points respectively. Sam Barrett (14), Jack Boltja (13), and Kurtis Brown (12) made the Warriors difficult to guard from all five spots.

    Brookwood will play host to Southland Academy for Senior Night this Friday. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. with Kurtis Brown, Jacob Atkinson, and Zack Milberg to be honored before the game.

    With a win Friday, Brookwood (5-2) can capture the #1 seed in next week's Region Tournament.

The sophomore had 18 points at halftime, helping build a 30-16 Brookwood advantage. Lewis finished with 20 points and Jordan Thompson chipped in 19 points of her own in the dominant 57-23 win.
     
    The win moves the Lady Warriors to 3-2 in Region play. Up next is an opportunity Friday night at 5-1 Deerfield to capture the important head-to-head sweep against the Lady Knights and regain control of the Region.
