Girls Preparatory School

Top-seeded Wesley Cash of Chattanooga and Mike Tammen of Portland, Ore., won the USTA Men 55 national indoor doubles championship Friday in Boise, Idaho, with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory over No. 2-seeded Californians Mike Fedderly and T. Lehto.

TSSAA Division I coaches and athletic directors from high schools in the southeastern part of the state met Thursday at Chattanooga Christian School to discuss football classification proposals and the possibility of a split between public and all private schools.

With the first game of the 17th Tennessee-Georgia high school all-star doubleheader tied headed to the seventh inning, Dade County catcher Madison Lacy had one thing in mind.

One week made all the difference for the Georgia girls' all-star soccer team.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Even though the debate over a potential public/private school complete split was never mentioned openly during the two days of the TSSAA Board of Control meetings, the subject was discussed during the closed-door session, according to one board member.

Coaches and athletes in southeastern Tennessee and northwestern Georgia often lament the fact that there is very little in-season competition between area high school programs in the two states. The TSSAA and the GHSA are on different reclassification cycles, so scheduling interstate contests proves difficult.

In the athletic realm there is little the three major award winners from Thursday night's Best of Preps Banquet have in common except, obviously, success.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — GPS undoubtedly saved its best for last.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — McCall Morgan couldn't think of a better way to end her Baylor high school tennis career: teammate Samantha Caswell as her doubles partner, teammates Maggie Crumbliss and Drew Hawkins as their opponents. It seemed almost like a day of practice.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Patience paid off for GPS on Thursday, and now the Bruisers are headed to the finals of the Division II-AA high school softball state tournament.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Marko Mandic finally put it all together — and at the most opportune time.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — GPS softball coach Susan Crownover said her team's seniors made a vow that their careers were not going to come to an end Wednesday night at Starplex No. 3. And one of them, Madi Stanley, backed it up with her arm and her bat.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — One by one, the Baylor girls' tennis players came off the court.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Little did anyone who was watching the Baylor-GPS softball game Tuesday at Starplex No. 3 know that when the second batter of the game homered, it would be enough to win.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — The Girls Preparatory School tennis team fought, rallied and ultimately prevailed. The Baylor girls persevered.
