Even when you’re playing an overmatched team, Park Crossing coach Smitty Grider points out, you need to focus on improvement.

It wasn’t easy for a spectator to critique either Park Crossing or Russell County after the former’s 65-6 whipping of the latter at Cramton Bowl last Thursday night, but Grider called it one of the most complete victories his third-year program has ever had while rolling up a school-record 65 points and margin of victory.

Alabama State University’s decision to end a 10-year relationship with the Alabama High School Athletic Association in hosting high school basketball regionals has forced city officials to look in an unexpected direction to keep the event in the Capital City.

Garrett Coliseum, once the site of some of the greatest basketball games ever played in the state, will host the AHSAA Central Regionals in mid-February, breathing life into a neglected facility whose calls for renovation have been ignored by state officials.

Is Montgomery back in the market for the NCAA Division II Baseball Championship?

The city hosted the event from 1985 to 2007, first at Paterson Field and later at Riverwalk Stadium, before it relocated in 2009 in Cary, N.C., at the USA Baseball National Training Complex. But in the wake of the NCAA’s decision to pull all championship events out of North Carolina because of that state’s stance on the LGBT community, Montgomery suddenly finds itself as one of the logical choices to host the 2017 championship.
