TSSAA Division I coaches and athletic directors from high schools in the southeastern part of the state met Thursday at Chattanooga Christian School to discuss football classification proposals and the possibility of a split between public and all private schools.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Even though the debate over a potential public/private school complete split was never mentioned openly during the two days of the TSSAA Board of Control meetings, the subject was discussed during the closed-door session, according to one board member.

Coming into the Tennessee-Georgia girls' high school all-star basketball game Tuesday, the Georgia team was facing a tall order — one that proved to be too tall to overcome.

Coaches and athletes in southeastern Tennessee and northwestern Georgia often lament the fact that there is very little in-season competition between area high school programs in the two states. The TSSAA and the GHSA are on different reclassification cycles, so scheduling interstate contests proves difficult.

Six of the Chattanooga area's most accomplished female high school athletes have been named finalists for this year's Times Free Press Best of Preps Scrappy Moore Award.

The biggest issue facing high school sports in more than a decade is still months from being decided, but if the Chattanooga area is any indication there is a clear consensus on the public-school/private-school debate.

Dozens of high school golfers from the northwest Georgia area traveled south Monday, attempting to extend their seasons.

CALHOUN, Ga. — For the great majority of his 27 years of coaching high school football, Jim Kremer has known nothing but success.

After down-to-the-wire regular-season races, Chattanooga-area high school baseball teams begin their seasons of no return this week.

Roger Gentry has resigned as head football coach at Sonoraville High School after three seasons, including the program's first appearance in the Georgia playoffs this past season.

Several playoff positions are still up for grabs in northwest Georgia as the regular season ends this week.

CALHOUN, Ga. — If there's one thing Brent Tucker knows about his baseball team, it's that no game will be too big.

The injured mouth and dental repair for one player and the staples in the head of another eventually will be forgotten, but Arts & Sciences baseball coaches, players, administrators and fans never will forget the heart-felt hospitality and sympathy extended by host Marion County after two Patriots players collided during a game last week.

The halfway mark of the Georgia high school baseball region schedules is here, and little has been decided in the Chattanooga area.

CALHOUN, Ga. — Sometimes adversity brings out the best in a team. Sometimes that adversity is just too much to overcome.
