SF’s date with Fillies
to start at 4:30 today

South Fulton’s Region 7A softball championship game at Huntingdon today will be played at 4:30 p.m.
The winner of the game between the Devilettes (22-8) and Fillies (28-6) will host Adamsville in a sectional game on Friday with a berth in the state tournament at stake. Two-time reigning state champion Trinity Christian Academy blanked Adamsville 10-0 on Tuesday to win the Region 8 title and will host today’s SF-Huntingdon loser in another sectional game Friday.
Huntingdon will be looking to avenge a 2-1 loss to the Devilettes at the same juncture last season in today’s Region 7A final.
On an unrelated note, a photo that appeared in Tuesday’s Messenger incorrectly identified South Fulton baserunner Kaci Daughtery as being tagged out at the plate against McKenzie. Cayce Martin was instead the Devilette runner.

Vol WR leaves team
after disappointment

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer says wide receiver Kenny O’Neal is leaving the program after a disappointing season with the Volunteers.
O’Neal, a junior college transfer who was expected to make an immediate impact last season, caught only two passes for 59 yards. One of those passes was a 49-yard touchdown reception against Louisiana-Lafayette.
O’Neal, 22, struggled academically, preventing him from playing in the Vols’ Jan. 1 appearance in the Outback Bowl.
Fulmer said Tuesday that O’Neal would transfer to another school, but did not specify where.
The 6-foot, 195-pound San Ramon, Calif., native played previously at the City College of San Francisco. He is the son of former New Orleans Saints tight end Kenny O’Neal Sr.
