Not even three weeks into the TSSAA softball season and already evidence shows that a collection of freshman pitchers are making a big impression in the Chattanooga area.

There are three tournaments on the first weekend of Tennessee high school baseball, and at least 13 teams will be hosting games in McMinn Central's Playing for a (cancer) Cure tournament, the Scenic City Classic and the South Pittsburg Invitational.

There could be tight high school baseball races throughout the Chattanooga area if coaches know their stuff.

Top 11 team scores: 1. Cleveland 215, 2. Wilson Central 166.5, 3. Bradley Central 141, 4. Ravenwood 132, 5. Soddy-Daisy 120.5, 6. Franklin 108.5, 7. Heritage 102, 8. Clarksville 98.5, 9. Cookeville 96.5, 10. Blackman 84.5, 11. Walker Valley 84.

TSSAA Class AAA state wrestling results

The goal at Hixson High School hasn’t changed. Coach Garrick Hall and the Wildcats want to win the region wrestling tournament.

The area's busiest Tennessee campuses during signing day were Baylor and East Hamilton, which had five players each who signed scholarships Wednesday.

All high school sporting events in the Chattanooga area were called off because of Tuesday's snowstorm, creating more scheduling problems on top of those caused previously by unusually cold temperatures.

Shane Turner had high hopes when he assumed the head-coaching duties for Red Bank's wrestling program.

The Chattanooga area is well represented in all classifications of this year’s Tennessee Sports Writers Association all-state football teams.

TSSAA kickoffs at 7 p.m. local time; Georgia games at 7:30

Slightly more than a dozen TSSAA Division I football teams are entering the first round of tonight's state playoffs with 4-6 records.

Evensville is over the mountain from Dunlap, but former Sequatchie County football coach Mike Zeller is coming back close to the area where he lived and coached for three years.

Since its inception, the TSSAA football playoff six-classification format has created controversy. But it can also produce intriguing matchups, and this year there's a chance for several area rematches in the first two rounds alone.

The TSSAA announced its high school football playoff brackets Saturday morning and 20 Chattanooga-area teams qualified for the playoffs. First-round games kickoff on Friday and the postseason culminates with the BlueCross Bowl state championship games, to be played Dec. 5-7 at Tennessee Tech University.
