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.
The high school football postseason is expected to be challenging, but for three area northwest Georgia teams beginning play tonight, those challenges are extreme.
All Tennessee kickoffs at 7 p.m. local time
Ready for some extra football?
COLUMBUS, Ga. — For the second consecutive season, the northwest Georgia area came away from the GHSA State Softball Championships with three titles and a runner-up trophy.
COLUMBUS, Ga. — Colbie Thomas may have summed up the day best. The Northwest Whitfield senior outfielder, after helping lead her team to a repeat of the GHSA Class AAAA softball championship Saturday over familiar foe Heritage, said having to defeat the Generals was akin to going against family.
COLUMBUS, Ga. — After a lackluster first day at home plate during the GHSA state softball tournament, Ringgold coach Rachel Hodge decided a little extra work was in order.
COLUMBUS, Ga. — Northwest Whitfield and Calhoun played their way into the championship round of the GHSA Softball Championships in Class AAAA and AA, respectively, after late-night wins Friday.
COLUMBUS, Ga. — All six northwest Georgia softball teams are still alive in the GHSA state tournament, and at least one classification will have a state finalist from the area.
COLUMBUS, Ga. — Pitchers stole the show for Heritage and Northwest Whitfield in the GHSA Class AAAA Elite Eight softball tournament Thursday, both in the circle and at the plate. As a result, the two Region 7 rivals will meet today at 5 in the winners-bracket final.
The last Friday of Tennessee's high school football regular season has numerous coaches changing their postgame rituals.
Storyline: The District 7-AA championship is on the line. Signal can take it with a win while Sequatchie would need to win and Grundy County beat Notre Dame to get it.
