Walker Valley

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.

Team Tennessee improved to 12-1 in the annual Tennessee-Georgia baseball Classic, besting Georgia 4-0 Wednesday in the annual Stump on Sports contest.

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.

Chattanooga resident Gibby Gilbert III won the Sunbelt Senior Tour event named for his father, the Gibby Gilbert Senior Invitational, on Wednesday at Eagle Bluff Golf Club.

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.

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.

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