East Hamilton seventh-grader Madison Hayes didn't just reach the Pitch, Hit & Run finals during Monday's All-Star Game festivities at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Wes Caldwell has resigned his position as baseball coach at Lookout Valley and is moving to Ooltewah.

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.

Twelve area players were named to Tennessee High School Soccer Coaches’ Association all-state teams announced Wednesday.

One week made all the difference for the Georgia girls' all-star soccer team.

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.

The hands were shaking and knees were knocking for several Chattanooga-area participants in the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic on Tuesday.

Justin Hickman and Tyson Venable have played WindStone Golf Club at least 100 times between them, and maybe as many as 300, in their young lives.

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.

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.

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.

Area high school football coaches have looked, are looking or will look for fit and familiarity in spring practice.

Offensive lineman Josh Walker from Rhea County and cornerback Sammy Seamster from Ooltewah were two of three Middle Tennessee State football players working out free-agent deals with NFL teams Saturday after Blue Raiders defensive lineman Jimmy Staten was picked by the champion Seattle Seahawks in the draft's fifth round.
