McMinn Central

On paper, it was the worst loss of Tyner basketball coach Gerald Harris's six-year coaching career. In the moments after that game, he said his team simply was outplayed, but his Rams knew exactly what happened, and heading into this season they feel they know what it's going to take to ensure that won't happen again.

The last Friday of Tennessee's high school football regular season has numerous coaches changing their postgame rituals.

Storyline: The teams have three common opponents — each beat Pope John Paul II and McCallie and lost to Montgomery Bell Academy.

Any grumblings about the 120-yard sprints East Ridge soccer coach Jeremy McIntyre put his team through won't be nearly as audible today. Thursday evening, the Lady Pioneers saw the big payoff.

Sloan Sullivan hosted a party at her family’s house before Ooltewah played Stone Memorial in the first of Monday’s Region 3-AAA high school volleyball semifinals. Then the Lady Owls basically continued the party on their home court.
