Dawson County 49, Jefferson 34

Dawson County (4-0) got balanced contributions to knock off Jefferson (2-2). Kindra Coker was aggressive early on, getting to her floater and sinking three threes. Following a pregame shootaround with Maddie Slaton, a former North Georgia guard, Abby Slaton found her groove with a team-high 11 points, netting a corner three before scoring in transition throughout. Ava Roberson had a terrific day, running the floor for deep post position and scoring through contact. Morgan Chester only had a pair of free throws, but again shined with her advanced floor game. Her ability to pass out of the post is impressive. She’s patient with the ball and has good court awareness.  Michel Robbins scored six of her team-high 8 points in the second half. Fellow freshman Alayah Johnson stepped up with her outside shot while Anni Aldridge made her season debut and scored her first bucket on an And-1 drive.

Dawson County 52, Denmark 44

Part of a strenuous double-header in a hot gym, Dawson County (5-0) held off a nearly full-strength Denmark (0-4) to remain unbeaten. The size of the Tigers was dominant as Jaci Wilson and Ava Roberson had huge games. Wilson was a monster on the offensive glass, using her height and strength to overpower the opposition. She scored on three putbacks, an And-1 and a roll. Wilson didn’t hesitate to shoot from the mid-range. Roberson did the same. Ava knocked down a high-post jumper, scored on an And-1 baseline drive and had a strong post move for her final bucket of the day. The tandem combined for 25 points and 13 rebounds. Abby Slaton sank a pair of three-pointers and dished out 6 assists. Morgan Chester hunted rebounds early and often, quick to crash the offensive glass. Kindra Coker, who now leads the league in assists per game (4.0) dropped five helpers. The southpaw is incredibly patient in the pick-and-roll, letting plays develop before delivering perfect passes. Emma Hempker powered Denmark scoring 21 points for the second consecutive week. The league leader in scoring nailed four threes including three in the first 10 minutes of the game. Serving as Denmark’s tallest player, Hempker was tasked with defending the post. She was able to use her quickness on multiple occasions to knock away steals on entry passes. Avery Huffman was second in command. She buried four threes and played with a pep in her step, quick to make every play.

East Forsyth 31, Lanier 23

Nora Swafford dazzled with her pocket-passing as East Forsyth (3-1) ripped off their third-straight win. Nora’s speed downhill and low center of gravity make it tough for defenders to cut her off, especially considering her physical strength. Swafford sees the floor extremely well, hitting rollers and cutters for easy hoops. Hollyn Hicks was a beneficiary, scoring a season-high 11 points. The freshman scored with both hands inside and showed a soft touch from the baseline. Hailey Hiddema also had a breakout game as the Broncos were missing starting guards Ayla Heard and Addison Rouse. Hiddema knocked down a pair of threes and scored two hoops in transition. Lanier (0-4) had just five players due to sickness. Asja Howell posted 12 points but was off the mark from the foul line. Michelle Ezumah moved into the league lead in blocks, swatting away five shots, now averaging 3.3 blocks per game. The freshman tore down 10 rebounds.


2027 6-1 F Hollyn Hicks – 11 points, 4 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 blocks
2025 5-7 SG Hailey Hiddema – 10 points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block

Union County 35, South Forsyth 31

Paula Robertson carried Union County (3-1) with a season-high 15 points. Only a sophomore, Robertson has good size and athleticism on the perimeter. The lefty scored multiple baskets downhill, hit a three and sank a pair of jumpers. Lara Turner drilled a pretty three off the catch as a safety valve. She also made a baseline jumper. Turner’s athleticism, versatility and size should all draw college attention. She is close to piecing it together full-time and exploding as an under the radar prospect. Aggressiveness and consistency are key. South Forsyth (1-3) got off to a good start behind two Amelia Brown threes. Jadyn and Avynn Kniceley mirrored each other’s production, each scoring on a cut, a floater and a mid-range jumper.


2026 5-9 G Paula Robertson – 15 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist
2024 5-11 F Lara Turner – 11 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals
2025 5-9 G Ariel McCarter – 5 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals

2025 5-7 G Amelia Brown – 8 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist
2024 5-9 W Jadyn Kniceley – 6 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal
2027 5-5 PG Avynn Kniceley – 6 points, 1 rebound, 1 steal

Redline 62, Athens Academy 27

With multiple players missing, Athens Academy (1-3) couldn’t keep up with the firepower of Redline (3-1). Carib Morris came out of the gates red-hot, piling in 16 of her game-high 20 points in the opening half. Morris drilled deep pull-up threes, scored through contact inside and ran the floor for fastbreak points. Calleigh Salvador scored four baskets at the rim and served as the team’s primary playmaker with Ana Anzola not in attendance. Emerson Carnes was effective in the paint, showing a nose for the ball as a rebounder and rim runner. Haley Ryczek was a pest on defense and ignited multiple transition opportunities. Kylee Herrick cashed in on a pair of threes while Gracen Holbrook scored all 6 points in the second half. Athens Academy got a breakthrough performance out of Kayla Wilkins. Wilkins drained a corner three and worked hard inside to gobble up rebounds and score in crowds. Kayla had three putbacks and nearly double-doubled. Kendall Lawson provided her usual consistent production, hitting a three, scoring on two drives and forcing a handful of turnovers.


2029 6-1 F Carib Morris – 20 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists
2028 5-4 PG Calliegh Salvador – 12 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals

Oconee County 37, North Hall 27

Down 20-14 at the half, Oconee County (3-1) outscored North Hall (1-3) 23-7 in the second half to surge past the Trojans. Julie Azeltine came to life, netting 11 of her game-high 14 points over the final 20 minutes. She scored on a back cut and three drives including a left-handed coast-to-coast And-1 eurostep. Azeltine’s consistency and well-rounded offensive game should start popping her up on D-III radars. Freshmen Eliza Oechsle (8) and Jill Daniel (6) combined for 14 points. Daniel brings great energy as an off-guard. Megan Miller, another freshman, is a physical wing that can knockdown the mid-range jumper. Braelyn McCall had a breakout game for North Hall with three threes. Lauren Hemmer cashed in on a pair of triples while Zara Gosse brought physicality to the post, scoring with a nice And-1 spin move.


2025 5-7 G Julie Azeltine – 14 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals
2027 5-5 G Eliza Oechsle – 8 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assist, 1 steal
