After down-to-the-wire regular-season races, Chattanooga-area high school baseball teams begin their seasons of no return this week.
The highest of the highs quickly turned into the lowest of the lows Monday evening for East Ridge soccer coach Jeremy McIntyre.
Randy Young started the season unsure not only about what his Tyner soccer team would look like but where the Rams would call their home.
The injured mouth and dental repair for one player and the staples in the head of another eventually will be forgotten, but Arts & Sciences baseball coaches, players, administrators and fans never will forget the heart-felt hospitality and sympathy extended by host Marion County after two Patriots players collided during a game last week.
For one of the few times in his teaching and coaching career, Tyner football coach Wayne Turner was caught unawares earlier this week.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Tyner's basketball team found itself trailing even before the first second had ticked off the game clock Thursday.

Tyner boys' basketball coach Gerald Harris had a message for his team before Tuesday's TSSAA Class AA state sectional home game. He wrote on the dry-erase board in the locker room: "In order to win the state, you've got to get in."

Inclement weather postponed those four games, along with every other boys' state sectional, forcing teams to wait one day before taking the court.
DeVante Jones knew the shot was going in when he shot it. So did Brainerd coach Levar Brown.
The adversity came late for Brainerd in the Region 3-AA boys' basketball semifinals Tuesday night. It came much earlier for Tyner.
