Nine Teams Added to BLITZ Hall of Fame
Few teams each year make earn their way into BLITZ Hall of Fame territory. However, these teams qualified based on specific criteria (found on our Hall of Fame Teams page). Congrats to these teams, who’s accomplishments will be remembered always.
TOWNS COUNTY LADY INDIANS
COACH: Clay Livingston
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: #4 State Ranking, Class 1A Final Four
The Lady Indians earn the distinction after advancing all the way to the Final Four. They got hot at the perfect time, and players like Jayden Taylor were instrumental in getting this team to uncharted territory. Though the 8 wins weren’t too flashy, there’s no denying that the girls were one of the best in the state.
TOWNS COUNTY INDIANS
COACH: Rollie Thomas
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Region 8-A Championship, #2 State Ranking, Class 1A Final Four
The team was incredibly talented, and it all started with Peyton Barrett and Jensen Brown, who were undisputed leaders and the best players in the region. The season ended in a loss to the eventual state champs in the semifinals at home in Hiawassee, and came with a #2 state ranking. For the Indians, it was only the second-ever playoff run, and far and away the greatest season in school history. This was a close call, as we could easily seeing going with Jefferson as well.
COACH: Casey Colquitt
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Region 8-AAAA Runner-Up, #4 State Ranking, Class 4A Final Four
Casey Colquitt’s group made a second straight Final Four run (excluding Covid-shortened 2020), earning a region runner-up finish along the way. Players like Sean Childs and Adam Hayes (star GK), and Kupa Katompa paved the way.
STEPHENS COUNTY LADY INDIANS
COACH: Debby Williams
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Region 8-AAA Runner-Up, #3 State Ranking, 3A State Final Four
This program hit new heights with a Final Four run in which the Lady Indians fell to GAC. Overall, it was a 17-4 season, and 5-1 within region play. The deep playoff run is one that won’t quickly be forgotten, especially with the dominance of leader Madison Rogers.
WHITE COUNTY LADY WARRIORS
COACH: Darrell Dorsey
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: 3A State Champions!, Region 7-AAA Champions!, #1 State Ranking
The Lady Warriors were probably favored from the opening swing to claim the state championship. Incredibly gifted golfers Catie Craig (state runner-up) and Erin Dorsey & Rylee Adams (both top-10) paved the way to huge success for White County, as the girls grabbed their long-awaited state championship! It came in dominant fashion, winning by 30 strokes.
TALLULAH FALLS LADY INDIANS
COACH: Allen Campbell
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: 1A State Runner-Up!, Area Champions!, #2 State Ranking
The Lady Indians grab a share of the honors after a truly dominating season in which Maggie Jackson (state 4th) and Brinson Hall (top-10) proved to be an electric 1-2 punch. Both are going Division-I, and even took one head-to-head win over White County, as the schools faced each other a few times throughout the season. Tallulah finished as state runner-up (school record) and earned the area title as well. Hannah Lundy, the team’s third member, improved dramatically throughout the course of the season.
COMMERCE LADY TIGERS
COACH: Hannah McRee
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: 1A State Runner-Up!, Area Runner Up!, #2 State Ranking
Cameron Ford completed her high school career in style with a state runner-up finish as a team and 4th as an individual. She and Kristin Tash (Area Champion & 8th at state) played unbelievably well.
GIRLS TRACK & FIELD
JEFFERSON LADY DRAGONS
COACH: Brandon Vinson/Timothy Lees
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: 4A State Runner-Up, Region 8-AAAA Champions!, #2 State Ranking
The Lady Dragons capped off an incredible season with a Runner-Up finish at state behind the performances of Katherine Law, Jada Pittman, and Abbey Howard to name a few. The region championship was followed up with a state runner-up finish and #2 state ranking.
BOYS TRACK & FIELD
COACH: Chas Hardy/Kendall Love
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: 1A State Champions!, Region Champions!, #1 State Ranking
The Tigers were just head and shoulders above the rest in 1A Public. Brandon Martin is a LARGE reason for all the success, but he had plenty of help with guys like Sammy Brown, Lambdin Hardy, Mason Gaddis, JJ Morris and many others having incredible performances at state. The state championship was the 4th for the program since 2013 (’13, ’16, ’19, ’21), and the boys have won 6 region championships in that timeframe as well.
