Northwest Whitfield

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

TUNNEL HILL, Ga. — It should be the easiest of basketball shots, but the free throw has haunted teams since the game's inception. The charity stripe was anything but giving Thursday night for Dalton.

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

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.

RINGGOLD, Ga. — It's not that Greg Brown doesn't enjoy seeing his basketball team pummel another opponent, but the Northwest Whitfield girls' coach knows things are about to get a whole lot tighter.

A recruiting class that had been loading up on beef got a little sizzle Thursday when the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga landed its 10th commitment. Washington County (Ga.) all-state running back Melvin "The Thrill" Hill became the first offensive skill position commitment for the Mocs in this class and brings with him a dynamic skill set.

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

The holiday season is only a couple of days gone, which means ... it's postseason time in Georgia high school wrestling?

TUNNEL HILL, Ga. — Northwest Whitfield senior defensive lineman Isaiah Mack turned more than a few heads Monday when he dominated at the annual Georgia Athletic Coaches Association North-South All-Star football game in Columbus.

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.

The recruiting process is just beginning to take off for Signal Mountain offensive lineman Harrison Moon.

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
