Sweet 16 Here We Come!!!

Last Updated: October 18, 2016 8:04 AM

The North Cobb Lady Warriors travel to Parkview HS for the 2nd round, Sweet 16, of the 2016 GHSA Fastpitch State Playoffs. The best-of-3 series begins on Wednesday with a double-header starting at 5pm, with game 2 immediately following at ~7pm. Game 3 if necessary would be back at Parkview at 6pm on Thursday.

North Cobb made the 2nd round by sweeping Colquitt Co on the Lady Packers home field last week by scores of 15-10 & 11-7. Parkview also swept their first round opponent, North Forsyth, by scores of 7-3 & 13-1.


North Cobb Sweeps Colquitt To Move To Rd 2 Of State Playoffs!!!

Last Updated: October 13, 2016 5:06 PM

The North Cobb Lady Warriors traveled to Colquitt Co HS on Wednesday for the first round of the 2016 GHSA State Fastpitch playoffs and came home with 2 come from behind victories to move on to round 2!!! In a true team effort, the lineup came alive and put up some impressive numbers, scoring 26 runs on 30 hits over the two games. North Cobb overcame early deficits in both games pulling ahead late and holding on for the sweep. North Cobb will now travel to Parkview for round 2.

In game 1, host Colquitt Co jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead after the first inning and then added 2 more in the 2nd inning to make it 5-0 early in the game.
Samantha Simcox
came in in the 2nd inning to stop any further damage. North Cobb responded though, as they would all night long, with 3 runs in the top of the 3rd inning on a 3-run homerun by
Jasmine Copeland
. Colquitt answered back with 3 more runs in the 4th inning to stretch their lead back to 8-3. The Lady Warriors responded in big fashion in the 5th scoring 5 runs to tie the game at 8.
Julie Sanderlin
led off the inning with a walk and
Rayna Ezzell
followed with a line drive single to RF. With 1 out,
Hannah Bednarek
hit a deep flyball to LF to score 1, then
Cassidy Babcock
singled to CF for an RBI to make it 8-5.
Mikila Mullen
singled to RF for an RBI and after a 2nd intentional walk to Copeland,
Kathryn Bywaters
lined a single into LF for 2 RBIs to tie the game! The score stayed at 8 through regulation sending the teams into ITB action. North Cobb failed to scored in the 8th after a questionable umpire call of the runner leaving 2B early, but Babcock threw out the Colquitt ITB runner trying to advance to third and Simcox got out of the inning without giving up a run. In the 9th inning, North Cobb exploded for 7 runs to take full control of the game. 4 singles to start the inning, including RBIs by Copeland and Bywaters, and a huge 3 run double by Bednarek put the Lady Warriors ahead for good. Colquitt added 2 runs in their half of the 9th but that was all they could muster. North Cobb had 18 hits in the game and Simcox gave up just 2 earned runs in 7 2/3 innings of work for the win.

In game 2, host Colquitt Co was the visiting team and yet again jumped out to an early lead. After starter Simcox got 2 quick outs, Colquitt used a walk, a double, and a single to take a 2-0 lead. But North Cobb wouldn't let that lead last long as the Lady Warriors responded immediately in the bottom half of the first with
Iman Muhammed
leading off with a walk and Mullen reaching on a sacrifice bunt that resulted in an error, and Copeland with a sacrifice bunt put runners on 2nd & 3rd with just 1 out. Bywaters then hit a ball that the SS couldn't handle that plated both runners. North Cobb eventually loaded the bases with a single by Ezzell and a hit by pitch from
Angela Cecere
but Colquitt's pitcher got a pop-out to end the threat. Colquitt went ahead yet again 5-2 with a solo HR and poor defense by the Lady Warriors. But North Cobb just wouldn't stay down. Bywaters singled and then scored on a double down the 3rd base line by Cecere who scored on a hard single by Bednarek making it a 5-4 game. In the 4th North Cobb strung together 3 straight 2-out hits to tie the game at 5 but that was short lived as Colquitt got a lead-off triple and a sacrifice fly to go up 6-5. North Cobb yet again came right back in the bottom of the 5th with a single by Cecere, a walk to Bednarek, an RBI fielder's choices by Muhammed and Mullen, then a bases clearing double by Copeland, giving her 7 RBIs on the day. With North Cobb up now 11-6, Colquitt mounted one last rally in the 7th inning. Simcox got a lead-off pop-up to SS but the next 2 batters got on with a single and a double. This brought game 1 starter Sanderlin back into the game to try to pick up the save. After an error and a single made it an 11-7 game, Sanderlin struck out the next batter for the 2nd out and induced a ground ball to Mullen at 3rd base which she took herself and tagged 3rd base for the final out of the game. Simcox picked up the win in game 2 and Sanderlin got the save.

North Cobb hopes to carry the excitement of this 2 game sweep into next week's round 2 series at Parkview! #GoWarriors

North Cobb Takes 3rd Place In Region Tournament

Last Updated: October 06, 2016 8:32 AM

The North Cobb Lady Warriors went 3-2 in the 2016 Region 3-7A tournament to take 3rd place!! Coming into the tournament as the 4 seed, North Cobb defeated McEachern, Marietta, and North Paulding to secure the 3 seed heading into the 1st round of the GHSA state tournament next week. The Lady Warriors will match-up against the #2 seed out of region 1-7A which has yet to be determined.

Wednesday night North Cobb & North Paulding faced off in a losers bracket game, for the 2nd straight year, to determine who stayed alive and who got the 4 seed out of region 3-7A. It was a back and forth affair, with North Cobb battling back from 2 separate 3 run deficits to pull ahead late and hold on for the victory! North Paulding got ahead early with single runs in the first 3 innings for an early 3-0 lead. But after being held hitless for the first 3 innings, the Lady Warrior bats woke up in the 4th plating 3 runs on 4 hits & a couple of North Paulding errors.
Jasmine Copeland
led off the inning with a triple to LF & that was followed by a double off the bat of
Kathryn Bywaters
. Bywaters scored on one of the 2 errors.
Rayna Ezzell
added an RBI ground out to tie the game at 3. North Paulding quickly responded though with 3 runs in the top of the 5th with 3 straight hits to lead off the inning and a costly North Cobb error.
Samantha Simcox
came in to relieve starter
Julie Sanderlin
and stopped the rally there with North Paulding leading 6-3. But the Lady Warriors responded with 5 runs off 4 hits and a walk.
Iman Muhammed
led off the inning with a line drive single over SS.
Mikila Mullen
walked, Copeland followed with a single to LF to load the bases. Bywaters singled on a flare to CF driving in Muhammed, Sanderlin followed that with a big double to CF driving in 2 runs! Ezzell drove in a run with another RBI ground out and
Angela Cecere
got an RBI sacrifice bunt to put North Cobb ahead 8-6. North Cobb added a run in the 6th on a double by Mullen who later scored on a North Paulding error to make it 9-6. Simcox closed the door in the 7th with
Cassidy Babcock
catching a popup behind the plate for the final out. Simcox allowed no hits and just 1 baserunner over 3 innings of work, striking out 1. Bywaters finished the game 3-4 with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored. Copeland was 2-4 with 2 runs scored.

The win moved North Cobb on in the bracket to face Kennesaw Mountain, who had lost in ITB earlier in the day to Hillgrove. Kennesaw Mountain quickly stopped any early momentum for North Cobb by scoring 2 quick unearned runs in the top of the 1st inning. The Lady Mustangs added another run in the 2nd inning off a homerun to LF to make it 3-0. Starting pitcher Sanderlin settled in after that though and held the Lady Mustangs in check until Kennesaw Mtn added an additional run in the 5th. North Cobb finally made some noise at the plate in the bottom of the 6th. A lead-off triple from Muhammed got things started and Copeland followed with a double to RF to drive her in. Bywaters then singled to CF driving in Copeland to make it a 4-2 game with just 1 out, but a couple of infield ground outs ended the rally. In the 7th, Kennesaw Mtn added 2 more runs to their lead with 3 straight 1-out hits. Simcox came in to get the final 2 outs in relief of Sanderlin keeping the score at 6-2. The Lady Warriors went down in order in the 7th though to end the game.

North Cobb now waits until the results of the region 1-7A playoffs are in to determine who & where they play. 3 teams remain alive as of Thursday morning. Lowndes is undefeated and in the finals already. Colquitt Co & Camden Co face off to determine who goes on to the finals. North Cobb will travel to the #2 seed from that region. Round 1 of the GHSA state playoffs begins on Wednesday afternoon at the 1-7A #2 seed with a double-header. The "if" game would be on Thursday afternoon again at the host #2 seed from region 1-7A.

North Cobb Drops 2 At Kennesaw Mountain

Last Updated: September 23, 2016 9:19 AM

North Cobb traveled to Kennesaw Mountain on Thursday in their final regular season region games of the season but defensive problems led to JV & Varsity losing both games.

In the varsity match-up, Kennesaw Mountain had the #1 seed on the line while North Cobb was looking to get the #3 seed in the region tournament in 2 weeks. After a quick 1-2-3 top half of the 1st, the Lady Mustangs struck first when an RBI double plated the first run of the game. North Cobb answered right back though as a 2-out bunt by
Angela Cecere
caused a throwing error by the pitcher scoring courtesy runner
Alexa Doherty
who was running for
Kathryn Bywaters
. Bywaters had singled, one of her 2 hits on the night, to lead off the inning. The tie was quickly broken though by Kennesaw Mountain with the help of 3 Lady Warrior errors in the bottom of the 2nd inning. The Lady Mustangs scored 4 times in the inning to jump out to a 5-1 lead after 2 innings. Kennesaw Mountain then extended the lead to 7-1 in the bottom of the 3rd with a 2-run homerun to left centerfield. Starting pitcher
Julie Sanderlin
settled things down though allowing just 1 hit over the next 10 batters to keep the score there. North Cobb started to climb back in the game with a lead-off homerun from
Jasmine Copeland
in the 4th inning. Then a triple from
Mikila Mullen
down the rightfield line scored
Iman Muhammed
who singled with 2-outs in the 5th inning. In the top of the 6th, the Lady Warriors forced the Lady Mustangs into 2 errors to load the bases with 0 outs and a chance to close the gap further. But the Lady Mustang pitcher was able to get 2 strikeouts and a ground out to end the rally with no runs scoring. In the bottom of the 6th, Kennesaw Mountain added a couple of insurance runs on 2 more Lady Warrior errors to make the score 9-3.
Samantha Simcox
came in in the 6th inning and got 3 quick outs to prevent any further damage. That was the final as North Cobb was unable to score in the 7th despite another error by the Lady Mustangs. Sanderlin gave up just 7 hits, 0 walks, & 1 hit batter over 5+ innings, striking out 3 and allowing just 3 earned runs.

In the early game, North Cobb's JV team was also undone by their defense as Kennesaw Mountain jumped ahead early 10-2 after 1 inning and never looked back in a 15-5 victory. In the 1st inning, a leadoff walk by
Kennedy Kirklin
and a single by Doherty started the 1st inning. Starting pitcher
Tessah McAllister
brought Kirklin home on a sacrifice fly to leftfield then Doherty scored on a wild pitch to make it 2-0 Lady Warriors. But 5 North Cobb errors led to Kennesaw Mountain plating 10 runs in the bottom of the 1st inning to put the Lady Mustangs comfortably ahead. North Cobb scored again in the 3rd inning on a double by McAllister and a sacrifice fly by
Kaylee Jordan
. The Lady Warriors then loaded the bases with 2 outs on hits by
Trinity Wilkinson
Camdyn Smith
and a walk by
Averi Childress
but the Lady Warriors were not able to push across any more runs. Kennesaw Mountain added 5 runs in the 3rd on 4 more North Cobb errors to make it 15-3. North Cobb came back with 2 runs on 5 walks in the 4th to make the final score 15-5.

Allatoona was celebrating their senior night and, in a class act, recognized the North Cobb seniors as well during the ceremony that took place between games.

In the Varsity match-up, the Lady Warriors could only manage 2 runs over the 7 innings despite 9 base runners and a big homerun off the bat of
Jasmine Copeland
in the 3rd inning. In the first inning, North Cobb threatened with 2 2-out walks but was unable to convert, while Allatoona got a 2-out hit in the bottom half of the inning to go up 1-0. In the 2nd inning, North Cobb again got 2 runners on with 2 outs, including a hit by
Karla Abundis
Rayna Ezzell
, who led off the inning with a walk, to 3rd base but Allatoona again got out of the jam. In the bottom half, Allatoona took control, once again with 2 outs, with 3 hits & a walk to score 3 runs to go ahead 4-0. But in the 3rd, North Cobb finally broke through to tighten the score to 4-2 with the Copeland HR, a double by
Kathryn Bywaters
, and a 2-out RBI single by
Rayna Ezzell
to RF. A walk by
Angela Cecere
gave the Lady Warriors 2 on with 2 out again but the Allatoona pitcher forced a ground ball to get out of the inning. Starting pitcher
Julie Sanderlin
held the game at 4-2 for 2 more innings allowing just a 2-out double to keep North Cobb close. The Lady Warrior bats went cold over the last 3 innings except for a 2-out triple by
Hannah Bednarek
down the 1st base line but again the runner was stranded in scoring position. Allatoona added another insurance run in the 5th to make the final score 5-2 Lady Bucs over the Lady Warriors.

In the early JV match-up, North Cobb and Allatoona had a back-and-forth scoring battle with Allatoona eventually taking the victory 9-6. The Lady Warriors opened the 1st inning with hits by
Kennedy Kirklin
Alexa Doherty
, both scoring later in the inning. RBIs by
Tessah McAllister
on a fielder's choice & a big double to RF by
Janiah Daniels
gave the Lady Warriors a quick 3-0 lead after 1/2 inning. Allatoona though bounced right back with 2 runs of their own with back to back 2-out hits to cut the lead to 3-2 after 1 inning. The Lady Bucs tied the game in the 2nd inning at 3, but North Cobb took the lead right back in the 3rd with a triple by McAllister scoring Doherty who reached on a hit by pitch. The lead was short lived as Allatoona responded again with a 2-run HR in the bottom of the 3rd to take a 5-4 lead. Neither team would score again until Allatoona extended it's lead to 9-4 in the 5th when with 2 outs the Lady Bucs had 6 straight batters reach base scoring 4 runs. North Cobb didn't go quietly though, as
Trinity Wilkinson
tripled to RF scoring
Kaylee Jordan
who singled with 1-out. Wilkinson later scored on a wild pitch to make it 9-6. North Cobb then loaded the bases with 2-outs before Allatoona's pitched enticed a ground out to 1st base to end the game.

North Cobb's varsity will be back in region action Tuesday at 5:30pm at McEachern. The JV & Varsity will then play on Thursday night in big region games at Kennesaw Mtn.

Lady Warrior Metro Blue With 2 Big Wins

Last Updated: August 31, 2016 8:31 AM

The North Cobb Metro Blue Lady Warriors are now 3-1 after a couple of key wins on the road as they took down a perennial power Pope on Sunday, and took down a tough Allatoona squad on Monday in an extra inning game.

On Sunday, North Cobb took the last of five lead changes in a back-and-forth affair against Pope, securing a 3-2 victory. They scored on an RBI single by Mackenzie Mathews, plating Bailey Brumley. But it was the defense on this day that won it. Behind stellar defense & Samantha Mathews on the mound, Pope had no answer for the Lady Warriors. Sam pitched a complete six inning game, allowing only one earned run off of three hits, three strikeouts, and just two walks. Sam took advantage of a great defense behind her, and there were some stellar performances out on the field. It was a complete team win on defense.

On Monday, North Cobb followed up the Pope win by outlasted Allatoona in a high-scoring extra inning affair. Emotions were high and the bats were busy, but when the dust cleared, North Cobb had a 13-10 win over Allatoona in five innings. The teams totaled 26 hits in the game and traded runs for most of the contest. North Cobb finally managed to grab the lead after a strong ITB fifth inning. A wild pitch scored Sydnee Wendel to give North Cobb the lead for good. Sydney Brown boosted her batting average thanks to a perfect 3-3 day at the plate to pace North Cobb, with two RBIs and a stolen base. Wendel got the win for North Cobb, with two strikeouts, four walks, and 10 hits.

North Cobb will be back in action with three back to back games starting on Saturday, September 10th at Walton, home on Sunday vs. Campbell, and then home on Monday vs Harrison.

In the Varsity non-region match-up,
Iman Muhammad
went a perfect 3-3 at the plate for the Lady Warriors. She walked in the 1st, singled in the 3rd, 5th, & 7th innings and scored 3 of the Lady Warrior's 5 runs.
Samantha Simcox
came into the game in relief during the 4th inning and kept North Cobb within reach. South Paulding managed just one hit off of Simcox, who allowed one earned run, walked three and struck out seven during her four innings of work.

South Paulding jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the top of the 1st. A double by Kiera Cooper, scoring Jaime Beaty, started the inning off. South Paulding took the lead for good in the 4th inning, scoring six runs on a two-run double by Cooper, an error, and an RBI single by Hardy. This put South Paulding up 7-1 after 3 1/2 innings.

North Cobb wouldn't go quietly though as the Warriors scored 2 runs in the 4th on a single by Julie Sanderlin, an RBI triple by
Hannah Bednarek
, & an RBI by
Kendra Roach
. In the 5th, North Cobb cut the deficit to three on an RBI single by Mikila Mullen. North Cobb plated 1 more run in the bottom of the 7th on an RBI single by
Jasmine Copeland
, who went 2-4 with 2 RBI, and loaded the bases before South Paulding was able to stop the rally and secure the 7-5 victory over North Cobb.

The North Cobb JV earned their first victory of the season last night with a resounding 11-7 win over South Paulding. The JV used very hot bats to explode out to an 11-2 lead early in the match-up. South Paulding didn't go quietly as they chipped away at the lead to get to within 11-7 but
Tessah McAllister
, who pitched a complete game, shut down the rally on the mound & solid late game defense, sparked by an over-the-shoulder catch in CF by Alexa Doherty, allowed North Cobb to hold on and win!
Rayna Ezzell
& Kennedy Kirklin both contributed 2 hits while
Janiah Daniels
had a huge 3 RBI triple.

Both Lady Warrior teams will be back in action on Thursday vs Marietta. JV plays at 5pm with the Varsity following around 6:30pm in the first region game of the season.

The North Cobb Metro Blue Lady Warriors opened the season with a 10-7 win over Hillgrove! The game started out with NC jumping out to a 10-0 lead on some amazing hits and base running until Hillgrove bats started heating up.

Key Highlights:

Defensive Player of the Game: Samantha Mathews started and pitched three innings of no hit ball with just 1 walk! She's a 5th grader and this was her first game pitching with the 12" ball! She used a great change-up with accuracy and control.
Offensive Player of the Game: Bailey BoJack Brumley 2-3, 2B, 3B, 2 RBIs, 2 Runs, 2 SBs.
Play of the Game: For the last out, Aubrey King at SS cutoff a hard hit ball up the middle & got the out at 1st with a laser throw. All the coaches thought it was a base hit. Another 5th grader!

North Cobb ended the game with 16 hits & a team batting average of .592! This team showed it has some big bats and will challenge any team out there. The coaches are looking forward to a great season with more double digit scoring to come!

Season Kicks Off With A Bang!

Last Updated: August 05, 2016 1:34 PM

The North Cobb Fastpitch Lady Warriors kicked off the 2016-2017 season last night with a strong outing vs Campbell in a scrimmage game. In front of a great crowd, the Lady Warriors used all facets of the game, offense/pitching/defense/base-running, to pull away from an early 2-2 tie to win 16-5. The starters were able to offensively pull away from Campbell and everyone was able to get into the game and contribute to show what they can do. The defense was solid behind 3 different pitchers over the 6+ innings. The team thanks all the fans, including the JV & metro teams, for coming out and supporting them.

Moultrie Trip 2015

Last Updated: July 01, 2015 10:39 AM

A great time was had by all on the summer Moultrie trip! The team along with volunteer chaperones traveled to Wakulla Springs for an overnight stay. The next day after a river boat ride, the team traveled back to Moultrie for some softball! Unfortunately mother nature didn't agree and rained out the games on Tuesday after 1 inning. Thankfully though Wednesday was a new and DRY day and the Varsity & JV got in a combined 5 games.

To add some memories, the team after dinner on the square in Moultrie took a group shot on the steps of the old courthouse in the middle of the square, just like the team did last season.

The Lady Warriors are back in town after a great weekend in Moultrie, GA where we got to see Coach Weaver's stomping grounds! Staying at the GA Baptist Center in Norman Park the team did a lot of bonding activities including some dodge ball on Friday night and sight-seeing and dinner in Moultrie on Saturday evening! In between, the Lady Warriors won both games on Saturday morning, 9-5 over Colquitt Co and 6-3 over Lowndes Co! After the games, our gracious Colquitt Co hosts treated our entire group to BBQ sandwiches for lunch.

RainedOut Messaging Service

Last Updated: August 11, 2014 6:24 AM
We will be using a text messaging service for NC Fastpitch called RainedOut. Alerts that need to go out to the HS teams about weather, schedule changes, updates, etc will be sent to this service. This will be an additional method of communication along side the current ones. This does NOT replace the texts from Coach Weaver to the player or emails to the group distribution lists.

This service takes the place of sending out Group SMS messages to the team about important information. This service is Opt-In and Opt-Out meaning you must subscribe to the service in order to receive the text alert to your phone. The admins do not know if you have Opted-In or Out nor do we see the cell numbers.

Opt-in via text message by texting the keyword 'NCHSFP' to 84483

To Opt-out of RainedOut service completely, reply with the word STOP to any RainedOut message or visit Opt-Out of RainedOut

Just follow the directions above to Opt-In (or to Opt-Out). The messages that are sent will also be copied to our @NCHSFastpitch twitter account. Please talk to Marty for any questions about this new service we are testing.
