ALBANY -- The Monroe baseball team is off to its best start in years at 3-0.

And Justin Nims has a lot to do with that.

Nims not only struck out five Friday for Monroe in a four-inning, 22-3 rout of Dooly County, but he stole 10 bases -- count 'em, 10 -- while also going 2-for-2 with a double and 4 RBI.

Of course, Nims also had help as teammate Amos Demarcus went 3-for-4 with a double and four steals of his own, followed by Jontavious Strong, who blasted a HR and hit two triples. Keith Hall added a double and an RBI.

Monroe's next game is Monday at Kendrick.


SGA 15, BYNE 0:

The Warriors got the 2010 season off to a good start as they recorded 16 hits and no errors in a three-inning rout of the young Saints.

Dillon Driver was the winning pitcher, striking out five in two innings of work, while also recording two hits. Other big swingers from SGA included Parker Adams and Chandler Ray (three hits each); Austin Boyd and Jamie Barton (one double each) and Danny Doster, who finished with two hits, one of which was a home run.

"It was a bomb," SGA coach Tommy Manry said of Doster's blast. "Probably the longest one I've seen since I've coached here."

SGA's next game is Monday at home against Randolph Southern.



The Trojans improved to 3-0 behind a strong night from sophomore pitcher Jess Posey, who was making his first appearance of the season after he missed Games 1 and 2 out sick.

Posey pitched four innings of the game that only lasted five, striking out six and giving up just two hits and two runs.

Lee County's bats, meanwhile, racked up 10 hits on Westside's Adam Goodwin as sophomore Mark Fowler went 3-for-3 with two singles, a double and a run scored. Jake Moye was 2-for-3 with two RBI and Jordan Duggan finished 2-for-3 as well with two RBI. Lee County's Chase Duo -- Chase Patrick and Chase Griffin -- each hit triples.

"I was pleased because our pitching was good once again but also because we also only committed one error after putting up seven in our first two games," Lee County coach Rob Williams said.

Lee County plays again today against Centennial at 2 p.m.




MACON -- The Deerfield boys and girls tennis teams both won Friday against Mount de Sales as the Knights edged out a 3-2 win to move to 2-0, while the Lady Knights won, 4-2, for their first victory of the season.

DWS is back in action today at Stratford.




LEESBURG -- The Lee County boys and girls soccer teams won a pair against local rival Westover on Friday as the Trojans beat the Patriots, 2-1, while the Lady Trojans won in a rout, 7-0.
