No Cartersville Coverage or more Class AAA coverage?? Disappointed. Oh well, Canes beat in county rivals Cass 42-7.

I read a comment here saying that Chapel Hill looked un-prepared for play aganist Carrollton Friday night. The truth is the school board failed these kids when they re-drew the district lines in their attempt to place 2000 kids in a new school after the crash of the housing industry. They made kids travel 8 miles to school when there is a school 2 miles from their house. You can’t do that and expect a existing program to survive. Chapel Hill for the last 5 years has competed in every game. This is not the coaches or the kids fault. It is okay to lose, but allow the community around the school to support their school, not your new one that needed kids to justify the expense. Give the Chapel Hill kids a break. The school board should shoulder that loss with Chapel Hill. Douglas County school board, shame on you for destroying a decent football program.
