Notre Dame

The last two Marches, Central boys' basketball coach Rick Rogers has taken his players — dressed alike in their warmup suits — to Murfreesboro to watch the TSSAA state tournament. But in March 2015, the Purple Pounders hope to be doing more than just watching.

Locally there's at least one group of girls who can rival Baylor's starters this basketball season.

Bradley Central will log a lot of miles, Sequatchie County is going over the mountain, Meigs County is coming back to the Chattanooga area and longtime rivals McMinn Central and Polk County are parting ways.

Notre Dame football coach Charles Fant said he has challenged his team to start fast and play hard from the opening whistle.

It looks as if the TSSAA did a fairly decent job this season with its playoff pairings but there always are those items that can be scrutinized.

Storyline: The Red Raiders have lost four straight games -- to the state's top three teams in Division II-AA and to an Oakland team ranked among the best in Class 6A -- and are looking for momentum before the playoffs. Defensively, Baylor needs to get better quickly as it has allowed more than 30 points per game in this four-game slide.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — The Notre Dame soccer team built an early lead and cruised to the semifinals of the Class A/AA state tournament Wednesday, defeating ninth-ranked Spring Hill 4-0 at the Richard Siegel Soccer Complex in Murfreesboro.
