The Brainerd area is not paired with Ooltewah. You can file a hardship to attend any Hamilton County school. Whether it is approved is up to the school system.
I feel that the TSSAA has set a precedent that could raise an issue for some coaches in Hamilton County not to mention other areas in the state. Our school(in Hamilton County) has kids that attend that we are forced to take. They live out of "territory" and happen to play sports. 4 play football. And not to mention a private school who is allowed to take kids from any "territory." Its a mess that can have major consequences going into the future.
