Boyd Buchanan

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.

When Rob Spence left Pikeville on Friday evening, he did so thinking his football team was through for 2014, so the Chattanooga Christian coach got quite a surprise Saturday morning when he received a call saying the Chargers were in the state playoffs.

For Boyd-Buchanan there’s another district football championship, but the Buccaneers are more excited about a five-game win streak and the opportunity to extend it.

A streak that was two decades in the making will come to an end this year.

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.

Storyline: Since a season-opening loss to Knox Catholic, the Irish have posted eight consecutive wins with an average victory margin of 34 points.

(All kickoffs at 7:30 Eastern unless noted)

Octavius Matthews played just a half for North Jackson last week but still proved to be a record-setter as the Chiefs secured at least a tie for the Alabama Region 7-4A championship.

It hasn't been the quantity of Liz Ciabattone's goals during her Notre Dame soccer career, but the quality and the timing of them. Saturday evening was one of those timely moments.

Sofia Olenchek has been marking off bucket-list accomplishments that senior soccer players rarely scratch off. On Tuesday, the Notre Dame junior soccer player recorded a hat trick.

SMYRNA, Tenn. — Signal Mountain won't be playing nearly as many sets today as it did Thursday. It won't have to.

Storyline: After playing tough against top-ranked Brentwood Academy last week, Baylor has another rugged task in this Division II-AA East/Middle Region game.

Signal Mountain was the only one of four Chattanooga area teams to win two matches on the opening day of the Tennessee state volleyball tournament.

It's the time of year in high school volleyball when unfamiliarity becomes a familiar word for many programs.
