November 11, 2007

It was the last game for Antonio Butler and the rest of the Green Wave senior class.

Hunters Lane Gets New Life

October 31, 2007

TSSAA has ruled that the player at Hunters Lane, although in his fifth year of high school, has not used all eight semesters of athletic eligibility. This ruling will allow Hunters Lane to keep their record, and keep them atop the Region 5-5A standings.

Hunters Lane Penalized

October 29, 2007

Hunters Lane High School, the current leader in Region 5-5A, will have to forfeit all nine games according to TSSAA sources. The Warriors have been penalized for playing a student athlete who is not eligible.

The result is a positive to the Green Wave. It now puts the Green Wave record at 4-2 in region play, tied for second currently with Hendersonville. The forfeit hurts Hendersonville, who has yet to play Hunter's Lane, and hurts Overton, who defeated Hunters Lane earlier in the year. Gallatin is guaranteed a playoff game with a win over McGavock on Friday. A win would put the Green Wave at home for a first round playoff game against the third place team in the Williamson County/Dickson County region. A loss against McGavock would almost eliminate the Green Wave. The tie breaker would favor both Hendersonville & McGavock. The only possibility to advance would be if Overton would lose their final game of the year.

Commandos Get Water Tortured

October 27, 2007

As usual, it was close. The Wave had convincing drives in the first and third quarters, but the Commandos were able to keep it close until midway through the fourth. That's when the quarterback duo of Butler and Matthews combined for three scores to put it out of reach. Gallatin 34, Hendersonville 13.

Macon County Cancels Frosh Game

October 22, 2007

Macon County High School has canceled the October 25 game against the Freshman Football team for school and community reasons.

The Green Wave administration has been looking for another opponent to fill the date, but none has been found as yet. If none is found by the end of the school day, the season will be declared over.

There has been some talk of moving some of the Freshman up to the varsity ranks to get them some extra practice and become familiar with the Varsity coaches, but no decision has been made as of this time.

Wave Gets Upended

October 20, 2007

The Green Wave played their poorest game to date Friday evening against the Hunter's Lane Warriors, losing 35-0. Gallatin could not capitalize on Hunter's Lane's turnovers. The opposite was true for the Warriors. Gallatin must win the next two weeks in order to reach the playoffs. The Green Wave hosts Hendersonville and McGavock to end the regular season.

JV Breaks Camp

October 15, 2007

The JV squad spoiled the Bison hopes of a win on Monday evening. The Wave, lead by Ryan Critchelow, scored in the last minute to beat the Heard 15-7.

Frosh Slip by Hendersonville

Antioch Gives Wave First Region Loss

October 5, 2007

Gallatin lost a heartbreaker tonight 25-24. It was the Wave's first region loss in nearly two years. The Wave battles Overton this Thursday night.

Wilkes and Co. Leave Wave 2-3

September 29, 2007

It was easy to see why Rod Wilkes is a U.T. committment on Friday night. Wilkes made the jump ball catches, and also a diving grab in the end zone to lead the Bulldogs over the host Green Wave. At times, it looked as if Quarterback, Sonny Gray just threw the ball up in the air and let the 6-3 receiver pull the ball down.

The Green Wave, led by Quarterback Antonio Butler had an impressive drive to begin the game, but the Wave was unable to consistently march the ball down field.

The Green Wave host Antioch Friday for their annual homecoming event.

Gallatin Shuts Out Colts

September 22, 2007

By Ethan Greer
eggallatin@bellsouth.net

Breakout performance.
That would be one way to describe Gallatin’s 38-0 thumping  of Glencliff this past week. The win moved the Green Wave to 2-2 on the season and more importantly moved their Region 5-5A mark to 2-0 which ties them atop the standings with Hendersonville.

After struggling in different phases of the game over the course of the first three weeks of the season, the Green Wave put together their best all-around performance of the season en route to the shutout. Playing the last of three straight road games, the Green Wave started the game with a bang as they scored on its first two possessions of the ballgame to gain control of the game.

(September 14,2007)

The Green Wave Freshman dropped a heartbreaker to visiting Beech last night by a score of 36-34. The Gallatin Freshman continuously hurt themselves with penalties and fumbles. The Freshman are now 0-2 on the season and travel to Mt. Juliet next Thursday to take on the Bears.

(August 25, 2007)

Due to the extreme heat conditions, the Sumner County Jamboree scheduled for this afternoon is canceled.

All of the coaches have mentioned that it was a combined team effort and they were happy to see how the team had progressed from Friday to Monday.

Off the field news was made by Ethan Burns, Ryan Lechner, and Sky Soule.
