Just one week after finding out the new classifications for all of the schools in the GHSA, the state's high school governing body rolled out their new region alignments on Tuesday afternoon.

Kale Davis crossed the finish line in 19:15 as the Ringgold Tigers placed 21st overall in the Class 3A boys' state cross country championships in Carrollton on Saturday.

Ask anyone that follows the sport of softball and that has lived in this part of the state for the last 40 or 50 years and they will all tell the same story of how northwest Georgia used to dominate slowpitch softball on the high school scene.

The Ringgold Lady Tigers are not the first team to ever fight back out of the elimination bracket to win a state championship.

The Ringgold Tigers found themselves in an 8-8 battle at halftime against Haralson County on Friday night, but the Rebels' ground game would be too much in the second half as the visitors from Tallapoosa pulled away for a 28-8 victory on rain-soaked Don Patterson Field.

The Ringgold Lady Tigers rebounded nicely from Thursday night's upset loss by hammering Lumpkin County, 10-1, in an elimination game in the Class 3A state tournament in Columbus on Friday.
