In the athletic realm there is little the three major award winners from Thursday night's Best of Preps Banquet have in common except, obviously, success.

Winning a state championship was not a requirement to become a finalist for the Scrappy Moore Coach of the Year award. But it certainly didn't hurt.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — By now Tyler Davis is used to the confused glances and double-takes.

Despite a better total score than she won with last year, Baylor's Selena Popp was unable to repeat her Division II pentathlon state championship, finishing third overall Monday at Middle Tennessee State University.

The starter's gun not only signifies the beginning of today's pentathlon and the Spring Fling state tournament, but is also the first step of a very busy week for Baylor's Selena Popp. The junior will attempt to become the first track & field athlete in school history to repeat as pentathlon state champion when that event kicks off the week-long Spring Fling today at Middle Tennessee State University.

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.

The decision was actually pretty simple for Charles Jabaley and J.R. Davis.

CLEVELAND, Tenn. — There are a lot of things that Katarina Saskova doesn't understand about life in the United States. Tennis isn't one of them.

CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Anyone who thinks Ooltewah isn't playing better softball in the latter part of the 2014 season compared to the first part should've been at Cleveland High School to see the fourth-seeded Lady Owls take on the District 5-AAA tournament's top-seeded team in a winners-bracket semifinal Saturday morning.

CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Tyler Davis liked the thought of following in his dad's footsteps. So he will be doing just that.

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