SUWANEE — When Collins Hill head football coach Lenny Gregory put Marietta on the schedule, he wanted a game that would prepare his team for region play later in the season.

SUWANEE — Collins Hill defeated Peachtree Ridge 10-2 in five innings in a Region 6-AAAAAAA contest on Thursday. Madison Spell threw all five innings and struck out six. Emily Whitehead delivered a three-run home run and Jordan Pape added two hits, including a home run for the Eagles (3-5, 2-3).

The Dacula and Mill Creek football players, as well as their families, see each other often around the neighboring school districts. They may be at the same grocery store or restaurant. They may attend the same church. They may cross paths at a social event, or at the Mall of Georgia.
