New Football Classification Breaks Up District 8-AAA
Oct. 24 District 8-AAA is no more…at least as far as football goes. The TSSAA Board of Control adopted a new classification plan Thursday that breaks up the seven team district for football, but it has zero effect on the rest of the sports. The only thing known for sure about Tullahoma’s football fate is that the Wildcats will be a Class 4A team along with District 8’s Lawrence County. Four other District 8 teams, Franklin County, Lincoln County, Shelbyville and Columbia, will be Class 5A, and Coffee County moves up to the new 32-team Class 6A division where all the teams will qualify for the playoffs at the end of the year. Those 32 teams will still be placed in regions for regular-season play.

The TSSAA has yet to create regions for the schools, but many seem to feel Tullahoma will wind up in a region with Lawrence County, Giles County, Marshall County, Spring Hill and Page. If so, the Wildcats would play five region games, leaving plenty of room in the schedule for such long-time rivals as Coffee County, Franklin County, Shelbyville and Warren County plus one other opponent. There is also the possibility the TSSAA could send Tullahoma toward Chattanooga to build a region or combine the Cats with Nashville area schools.

Enrollment figures for the former District 8-AAA schools:
Coffee County 1,730
Franklin County 1,486
Columbia 1,353
Lincoln County 1,282
Shelbyville 1,248
Lawrence County 1,123
Tullahoma 1,053

Number of teams in each classification:
6A (32) Maryville moved up to this division by request, and Lavergne, the smallest 6A school by enrollment, agreed to drop down to 5A to keep the planned 32-team classification intact for 6A.

Wildcats Rally Big for 43-21 Win at Warren County
Sept. 27 The Tullahoma Wildcats’ topsy-turvy season continued Friday night with a 43-21 win at Warren County that featured many of the twists and turns and ups and downs of the season as a whole. The Cats (3-3) started out strong with a 10-0 lead against the Pioneers, then, after holding on for a 10-7 half-time lead, they found themselves down 21-10 with 5:56 left in the third quarter. The Wildcats then put together an amazing 12 minutes of football from midway through the third quarter to midway through the 4th. It started with a 42-yard TD pass from Cole Potter to Jake Crabtree with Will Holt’s kick making it 21-17 with 4:12 left in the third quarter. Early in the fourth the Wildcats recovered a Warren County fumble, and Potter ran it in from four yards out on the next play to make it 24-21. The Cats again recovered a fumble, and Potter ran it in from 32 yards out. The extra point failed, and it was 30-21. With 7:21 left in the game, Riley Darden flew 67 yards for a touchdown, and another miscue on the extra point made it 36-21. Potter wrapped up the 33-point Wildcat explosion with a 50-yard punt return for a touchdown to make it 43-21. The Wildcats travel to Columbia Friday night for a big district showdown with the Lions.

Wildcats Defeat Rebels 34-14 in Homecoming Battle
Sept. 20 The Tullahoma Wildcats continued their startling turnaround with a 34-14 homecoming victory over Franklin County at Wilkins Stadium Friday night. The Wildcats, 2-3 overall and 1-1 in district play, looked like anything but a playoff contender when they lost their first two games (McGavock and Stewarts Creek) by a combined score of 76-21. But, in week three the Cats took one of the district favorites, Shelbyville, down to the wire before the Golden Eagles scored in the closing seconds to win the game. Then, the state's sixth-ranked Class 5A team, Giles County, came to town and the Wildcats knocked them off for their first win of the season. That led up to last night's district showdown with rival Franklin County, and the Wildcats controlled the game from the second quarter onward. After they battled to a 0-0 standoff at the end of the first period, the Cats rolled up 14 points in the second quarter when Chase Dixon connected with Cole Potter for a 52-yard score 15 seconds into the period, then Potter scored on a six-yard run later in the quarter to make it 14-0 going into the half. Just in case the Rebels had not seen enough of Potter already, he re-introduced himself by taking the opening kickoff of the second half 88 yards for a touchdown to give the Wildcats what appeared to be a cushy, 21-0 lead. But, Franklin County battled right back with a pair of touchdowns to cut the margin to a more nerve-wracking 21-14. Potter opened it back up late in the third with his fourth touchdown of the game, a two-yard run that gave the Cats a more comfortable 28-14 advantage. Riley Darden capped off the scoring with 1:55 left in the game after Tullahoma used more than seven minutes to set up Darden's five-yard TD run. The Wildcats travel to Warren County for a non-district contest Friday night.

The Tullahoma Wildcats lost a heart-breaker to Shelbyville Friday night when the Golden Eagles scored the go-ahead touchdown with 23 seconds left in the game. After the Cats scored on a one-yard run by Cole Potter to take a 35-32 lead with 3:26 left in the game, Shelbyville marched right down the field to capture the 39-35 win. The 0-3 Wildcats now must gear up for a non-district opponent, Giles County, that already has wins over two District 8-AAA squads, 21-13 over Lincoln County and 43-23 over Lawrence County. This Friday's contest start at 7 p.m. at Wilkins Stadium.

Wildcats Fall to 0-2 With Loss at Stewarts Creek
Aug. 30 The Tullahoma Wildcats fell to 0-2 with a 34-14 loss at Stewarts Creek in Rutherford County Friday night. The Red Hawks returned the opening kick 98 yards for a touchdown on the way to a 27-0 lead at the half, then cruised in the second half. Stewarts Creek, in only its second year of existence, had an estimated 1,500 students when the doors opened for the first time last year. The win over the Wildcats was the second in the team's short history after going 1-9 in its inaugural season. The Wildcats and coach John Olive now turn their sites to Shelbyville (1-1) and Friday night's district opener at Wilkins Stadium. The Cats had several starters sidelined for injuries Friday night but hope to have a full roster for Friday's 7 p.m. kickoff.

McGavock Spoils Wildcats' Home Opener With 42-7 Rout
Aug. 23 Trouble started for the Tullahoma Wildcats on the very first play from scrimmage against McGavock Friday night, and the trouble didn't stop until the scoreboard read 42-7 in favor of the Raiders. The Cats threw an interception on their first play from scrimmage, and McGavock quickly drove in for a touchdown. The onslaught didn't stop until the Raiders had built a 21-0 first-quarter lead. To their credit, the Wildcats continued to battle, and when Eli Grow hooked up with Jake Crabtree for a 26-yard touchdown in the second quarter, it cut the deficit to a workable 21-7 going into halftime. But, turnovers again killed Tullahoma's momentum in the second half as the Cats gave the ball away on four straight possessions with McGavock turning three of those turnovers into touchdowns. The Wildcats travel to Stewart's Creek for their second game of the season Friday at 7 p.m.

Wildcats Set for Final Pre-season Tuneup Today
Aug. 15 The Tullahoma Wildcats travel to Independence High School today for the final pre-season tuneup leading to next Friday's season opener against McGavock at Wilkins Stadium. Coach John Olive and his staff will get one more look at the quarterback candidates in today's scrimmage, though Olive indicated earlier this week if the decision was made at that time it would be junior Eli Grow at the helm of the offense. Sophomore Chase Dixon is also pursuing the position. Dixon, and outstanding athlete, will likely see plenty of action at other positions if he does not win the quarterback job.

Wildcats Practice With Marshall County; Fan Feast Friday
Aug. 4 The Tullahoma Wildcats got their first action against another football team Friday evening at Wilkins Stadium when Marshall County came to town for a situational scrimmage. While the format wasn't a live football contest, it did provide the opportunity for both coaching staffs to identify strengths and weaknesses by practicing against another team. The Wildcat staff learned they still have a lot of work to do on special teams as the Tigers returned one punt and one kick off for touchdowns. On a more positive note, both quarterbacks, junior Eli Grow and sophomore Chase Dixon, performed well behind center, and the competition to determine which will be the starter continues. The staff will learn more Friday night when the annual Fan Feast will be held at Wilkins Stadium with up-and-coming Class A squad Fayetteville City as the opponent in an actual scrimmage. As always, hamburger and hot dog plates will be available for fans with the game starting at 7 p.m.

Cleveland Indians Pick Justus Sheffield in Draft
June 6 It has been a week to end all weeks for recent Tullahoma High School graduate Justus Sheffield. Just one day after being named Tennessee's first-ever "Gatorade National Player of the Yea,r, Sheffield became the 31st player picked in the Major League Baseball draft Thursday night. The Cleveland Indians chose Sheffield, and according to Major League Baseball sources, a $1.6-million contract has been agreed upon. The Indians will also reportedly pay tuition for eight semesters at Vanderbilt University. Sheffield's older brother, Jordan, is currently a member of the Vanderbilt baseball squad, and Justus had signed to play there also before being drafted and apparently agreeing to a contract with the Indians.

Riverdale, a team that hasn't lost in more than a month, never gave the Wildcats a ray of hope in Thursday night's Region 4-AAA finals at Grider Stadium. The Warriors scored three runs before making an out in the first inning and wound up scoring five before the Wildcats got a chance at the plate. The good news is that both teams move on to today's state sectional round for a berth in next week's state tournament. Tullahoma travels to Cookeville for a 6 p.m. contest, and Soddy Daisy travels to Riverdale. This is the third straight year Riverdale defeated Tullahoma in the region finals.

Sheffield also drove in a run with a single in the sixth. It was the fourth time in five years that Tullahoma eliminated Siegel in the first round of the region playoffs. Riverdale will visit Tullahoma Wednesday at 6 p.m. for a regional final game. Both teams have already qualified for Friday's state sectionals.

Taylor Honea Grand Slam Lifts Lady Cats to District Win
March 12 Junior Taylor Honea blasted a grand-slam homer in the bottom of the sixth inning to lift the Tullahoma Lady Wildcats to a 5-3 district win over visiting Lincoln County Tuesday night. It was the second straight district win for the Lady Cats to open the season and the second complete-game win for freshman pitcher Madalyn "Mojo" Edde. Tullahoma now steps outside the district for a Thursday game at Warren County followed by a Saturday contest at Grundy County.

Columbia Captures Extra-inning Win Over Wildcats
March 12 For the second straight night the Tullahoma Wildcats and Columbia Lions found themselves involved in a good, old-fashioned pitchers' duel, but this time it was the Lions who found a way to break through. After the Cats came out on top 3-2 Monday night at Columbia, the two teams battled to a 0-0 tie through seven innings Tuesday night at Grider Stadium with Scott Jones dominating on the mound for Tullahoma while Jonathan Davis did the honors for Columbia. Finally, with two outs and the bases loaded in the eighth, the Lions scored on a slow infield roller, and Davis made it stand up in the bottom of the eighth. Jones went 7.1 innings for the Cats, allowing only four hits and three walks to go along with five strikeouts. Tyler Burns got the final two outs and was on the mound when the hard-luck, slow roller scored the only run. Tullahoma plays in the Grand Slam Challenge in Rutherford County Thursday through Saturday.

Lady Wildcats Hold Off Columbia for 3-2 District Win
March 11 The Tullahoma Lady Wildcats opened the District 8-AAA softball season with a 3-2 win at Columbia Monday night. The game marked the high school debut of freshman pitcher Madalyn "Mojo" Edde, who struck out 11 and allowed only two hits for the Lady Cats. Tullahoma, which had only three hits in the contest, did all its offensive damage in the third inning when Joanna Liles delivered a two-run single, and Taylor Honea drove Liles home with a grounder. Columbia scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning. Edde had to overcome some adversity in the bottom of the seventh when Columbia had a one-out double, but she struck out the final two batters to preserve the win. The Lady Cats continue district play today with a 7 p.m. contest against Lincoln County at the East Middle School field. (Coffee County beat Lawrence County 7-0 in the only other district action Monday night).

Wildcats Top Columbia 3-2 in Baseball Season Opener
March 10 The Tullahoma Wildcats got the baseball season off to a rousing start Monday afternoon with a 3-2 win at Columbia. The Wildcats rode a 15-strikeout, 3-hit performance from ace pitcher Justus Sheffield. After loading the bases in the first inning against Columbia's Carter Bair, the Wildcats got a 2-run single from Tyler Burns to jump to an early lead, then added the winning run in the fifth inning when Tanner Hill doubled and wound up scoring on an interference call. Sheffield allowed no earned runs and walked one in a seven-inning outing. The two teams play again Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Tullahoma's Grider Stadium.

March 10 The Tullahoma Wildcat baseball squad and the Lady Wildcat softball team both open the season today with trips to Columbia to dive straight into District 8-AAA action. The Cats, coming off a state tournament appearance last year, have a lot of rebuilding to do as do the Lions. Coaches expect a wide-open race for district supremacy this year. The very young Lady Cats improved by leaps and bounds last season under first-year head coach Gary Barfield. After finishing below .500 in the regular season, they made it all the way to the district tournament finals before finishing second. They lost to eventual state champion Smyrna in the region tournament. Both games will be broadcast on 105.1 FM, AM 740 and on LightTube channel 11.
