Lady Cougar Soccer Coach Bryan Horton said, “So very excited to get the year started. The girls have worked so hard this summer.  With many new players and returning players, they are expected to have expanded rolls after losing 12 seniors last year.  The team will look totally different than last year, but I think as a team, this group could do very well.”  Fulton is in town as the Lady Cougar Soccer season begins today at 5:30 pm.

It’s game week for Cougar Football.  CCHS began preparations on Monday for Friday’s season opener at Rogersville with Cherokee.  Eighth-year Head Coach Justin Price explains, “Yesterday was about beginning our process to be mentally prepared for Cherokee.  Our guys were focused on understanding what Cherokee does. We are going to work hard to avoid the typical first game mistakes. We want to focus on eliminating the mistakes we can control.”

The Chiefs return its starting quarterback from a team that finished 5 and 5.  “Cherokee is well coached and have several experienced players back at key positions,” said Price.
