FHS Tigers

Fayetteville High School’s Tigers improved their record to 10-0 with a 43-13 road trip win over Sale Creek Friday night. The game was played at U.T. Chattanooga’s Finley Field.

Officially, though, that record went to 6-4 on Tuesday with the TSSAA's Board of Control decision to deny the eligibility of a student-athlete. The decision also took away the team's hopes of competing in the state playoffs, which begin this week.
