A decision by the TSSAA Board of Control to create a 6th class plan for the 2015-2016 school year will affect teams here in Cumberland County. The new plan places the 32 largest schools, based on enrollments, into a district together. These teams will automatically qualify for the state playoffs. Among the teams moving up to the new district are Warren County and Cookeville. The remaining schools will be put in five classes, divided evenly based on their enrollment figures, and qualify for the playoffs as they did in the old 5-class system, with the top 4 teams in each region qualifying for the playoffs. The new districting will place Cumberland County and Stone Memorial High Schools in the same region as White County, Livingston Academy and Hixton as well as 3 other Chattanooga area schools.
Fourth District Upset Unlikely
AP Wednesday August 13, 2014
Although it is unclear exactly how many Republican provisional ballots remain uncounted in the 4th Congressional District primary, officials say the ballots counted so far make an upset look increasingly unlikely. Congressman Scott DesJarlais held a 35-vote lead over State Sen. Jim Tracy in unofficial results from last week's election. Tuesday, Marshall County election officials had counted 13 provisional ballots, but only three were for the Republican primary. Two were for DesLarlais and none for Tracy. In Rhea County, there was one ballot cast for Tracy, and in Franklin County there was one ballot cast for DesJarlais. At least five other counties have some provisional ballots remaining. The election results must be certified by August 25th.
