Calhoun

CALHOUN, Ga. — For years Glen Hicks' team has been the hunted in Region 7-AA, but when Dade County got off to a slow start this basketball season the reign was thought to be over.

The GHSA Wednesday announced the postponement of the state traditional wrestling tournament, which was scheduled to take place this weekend at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, due to travel concerns.

An earlier-than-expected dose of inclement winter weather in northwest Georgia caused the postponement of three area region basketball tournaments Monday. That forced the area's largest region to shorten its tournament and in the process end some teams' seasons.

The goal at Hixson High School hasn’t changed. Coach Garrick Hall and the Wildcats want to win the region wrestling tournament.

The area's busiest Tennessee campuses during signing day were Baylor and East Hamilton, which had five players each who signed scholarships Wednesday.

CALHOUN, Ga. — As a standout defensive lineman, Austin Byrd's first rule is to follow the football. The 6-foot-3 Calhoun High School senior takes that same mentality to the basketball court, and it paid off big-time Tuesday night.

All high school sporting events in the Chattanooga area were called off because of Tuesday's snowstorm, creating more scheduling problems on top of those caused previously by unusually cold temperatures.

Football may rule the high school sports scene in northwest Georgia, but when it comes to facilities, the basketball programs may be on top.

Shane Turner had high hopes when he assumed the head-coaching duties for Red Bank's wrestling program.

The Chattanooga area is well represented in all classifications of this year’s Tennessee Sports Writers Association all-state football teams.

The Georgia Sportwriters Association all-state high school football teams for 2013 were released early this morning, and Ringgold had three first-team selections and a second-teamer while Northwest Whitfield had two first-teamers and a second-teamer and Calhoun had one first-team player and three second-teamers.

CHATSWORTH, Ga. — As her teammates patted her on the back and chanted "MVP, MVP," Calhoun's Jana Johns flashed a shy smile and shrugged her shoulders when asked to describe the final few seconds of Saturday's game.

Barring appeal, Georgia high schools have been placed in regions for the 2014-16 academic years. In most cases with northwest Georgia athletic programs, the result is less travel and some new rivals.

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Benedictine's defensive secondary knew it faced its biggest test of the year going up against a high-powered Calhoun passing offense.

CALHOUN, Ga. — The stats say the Calhoun Yellow Jackets should have lost last week. Outgained nearly 2-to-1 and out-possessed by an even greater margin by Greater Atlanta Christian, Hal Lamb's team somehow escaped with a 31-30 win in the GHSA Class AA second round.
