What we are seeing with the Golden State Warriors this season is simply incredible. We may not ever see another team dominate their schedule like the Warriors have this season – well, except for maybe next year’s Golden State squad. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.
With less than 10 games remaining in their season, the Warriors seem poised to finish with the best regular season record in the history of the NBA. The significance here cannot be overlooked. Many believed that the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls would forever hold the record for the best regular season record at 72-10. The fact that we are even having this conversation is remarkable.
The Warriors started the season 24-0, haven’t lost back-to-back games all year, and haven’t lost at home in, well, over a year. Yet, even with all of that, the Warriors still have a tough road to their true goal — repeating as NBA Champions.

The Bethlehem Christian Academy baseball team was 2-3 in GISA Region 1-AAA this week. That mark could easily be 5-0, however, as the team’s three region losses are by a combined three runs.

For coach Matt Nicks, the close losses are not a reason to panic as the Knights will have another crack at each one of those foes.
“The region is pretty stacked,” Nicks said. “There is a pretty narrow gap in the top five teams. It is one of the best regions. I feel like it is the best it has been in a while.” [Full Story »]
The Winder-Barrow High School baseball team stayed at the top of the Region 8-AAAAA standings following a 12-2 win against county rival Apalachee High School Monday evening.
The Bulldoggs are now 9-1 in region play, tied for first with Gainesville and Loganville. Monday’s win completed a season sweep of Apalachee as the Bulldoggs also recorded a 6-0 win Friday.
“I thought we played well in all phases of the game,” said Winder-Barrow High School coach Brian Smith.
Jackson Shook earned the win after pitching the first four innings. Daniel Buice then closed out the final three innings.
Pat DeMarco connected for another two homers in Monday’s win to bring his season total to eight. DeMarco had a solo homer in the top of the third and a two-run blast in the top of the seventh. [Full Story »]
