The halfway mark of the Georgia high school baseball region schedules is here, and little has been decided in the Chattanooga area.

CALHOUN, Ga. — No one would have blamed Chip Henderson if, more than once Tuesday, the Calhoun High School baseball coach believed his team was having a little April Fool’s Day tomfoolery with him.

McClain Kessler likes new opportunities.

MACON, Ga. — What transpired Friday evening inside the Macon Centreplex surprised many in attendance.

CALHOUN, Ga. — When told that a newspaper article highlighting the GHSA state tournament had given his team a 5 percent chance of winning, Calhoun coach Vince Layson had a quick retort.

CALHOUN, Ga. — Monday was a busy day for Vince Layson. The Calhoun High School basketball coach apparently was unprepared for the avalanche of attention brought his way following Saturday's shocking semifinal win over Vidalia.

Coosa came into Thursday's Georgia Class AA boys' basketball quarterfinal at Calhoun with nearly half its losses being to the host team. Now the word "nearly" can be taken out of that sentence.

CALHOUN, Ga. — Vince Layson has been preaching to his basketball team the importance of closing out quarters strongly. Tuesday night in the GHSA Class AA second-round playoff game against Westminster, his Calhoun Yellow Jackets took that message to the extreme.

CALHOUN, Ga. — Just three weeks ago, Calhoun High School opened the doors on a sparking new indoor athletic facility.

CALHOUN, Ga. — As a senior playing his first season with a basketball team, Chandler Curtis often finds himself deferring to his teammates during a game. Monday night in a 60-53 Region 7-AA semifinal win over Coosa, the Calhoun guard took matters into his own hands late in a tight game.

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.
