Spring has not sprung yet, but spring sports at Banks County High School have sprung into action this past week. Soccer gets the early start on the season with matches in February. Golf, tennis, baseball and track will play catch up to soccer as the next two months go by.
Banks County varsity soccer began its season with a game at East Jackson on Valentines Day. Led by Captains Koewy Heu, Austin Crowe, and Jacob Samples, this team will move forward from the 2011 season.
"The Leopards have practiced hard and we are ready to take on the 2012 season and winning state," said Coach Micheal Boomer.
As for other spring sports, Coach Len Dalton said: "It's going to be an interesting year for Banks County golf, we do not have a single senior on the boys or girls teams. I am very excited for Cara Gowder, who has been the low medalist in the girls region tournament for the last two years and has advanced to the state tournament. Our goal is for the girls to advance to the state tournament as a team this year."
