I have a question. What would the near-future TSSAA classification look like without the 1.8 multiplier slapped on private schools whose desire is to remain in the public school division?
• Baylor (5-3, 2-2) at Ensworth (6-1, 3-1), 8 • Bradley Central (2-5, 0-3) at Soddy-Daisy (4-4, 1-3) • Central (6-2, 3-2) at Hixson (6-2, 4-0)
RINGGOLD, Ga. — Ringgold dug its usual early hole in Friday's twice-delayed Georgia Class AAA softball first-round series against Rockmart, but, as usual, the Lady Tigers found a way to climb out.
CALHOUN, Ga. — The biggest adjustment of the 2014 prep football season for the Ringgold Tigers may have occurred Friday night, but it had nothing to do with schemes or personnel. Down by 14 points to upset-minded Sonoraville in a key Region 6-AAA game, coach Robert Akins went for an attitude adjustment.
Storyline: The Eagles complete the Scenic City swing after coming to town and blasting McCallie last week.
Finding the right fit is always a priority when it comes to decision time for a high school recruit.
TUNNEL HILL, Ga. -- As the two-time defending state softball champions in Class AAAA, Northwest Whitfield has instant name credibility within the Georgia prep circle.
Soddy-Daisy quarterback Hunter Maynor may have been unsung entering the 2014 high school season, but it's unlikely that he is being overlooked.
• district/region game • Bradley Central (0-3, 2-5) at McMinn County (2-1, 2-5) • Brainerd (2-2, 2-6) at Tyner (1-2, 1-6) • Brentwood Academy (7-1, 3-1) at Baylor (5-2, 2-1)
RINGGOLD, Ga. — A 49-12 win over your oldest rival is always a tonic for what ails you, and what bothered Ringgold Friday night as Catoosa County neighbor Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe came calling was a serious bad taste in the Tigers' collective mouth.
DALTON, Ga. — Calhoun had to work a little overtime to win the Region 6-AAA softball tournament championship Thursday and after winning three games, including two over regular season champion Ringgold.
Storyline: The Red Raiders rake their show to Murfreesboro after a tough rivalry loss to McCallie. Baylor's offense never got going last week, and its defensive front will be tested this week against an Oakland offensive line that includes University of Tennessee commitments Kyle Oliver at TE and Jack Jones at OT.
DALTON, Ga. — Sometimes a little adversity is good for a softball team.
Front-runner: McCallie (7-0, 3-0). The Blue Tornado have beat two previously unbeaten East/Middle region teams in Ensworth and Baylor.
