CHS Program Fares Poorly In Statewide Athletic Rankings
Friday, 26 June 2015 15:51
For the past several years students at Chattooga High School have been exhorted to “Expect Success.” In the area of athletics, that motto has not translated into winning records or playoff appearances.
Chattooga High School ranks as one of the least successful athletic departments in Georgia, according to the Georgia Athletic Director’s Association (GADA). Out of 57 Class AA athletic programs, Chattooga High ranked 55th in the GADA’s recently-released Director’s Cup, a ranking of the overall success of athletic programs. 
Only Groves High School in Chatham County and B.E.S.T. Academy of Atlanta scored lower than Chattooga in the Class AA standings. Out of 433 schools in all classifications competing in Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Chattooga was ranked 397. 
“Overall I think we are moving in the right direction,” said Chattooga Athletic Director Billy Martin. “Everybody is wanting a quick fix and that is what has hurt us in the past. They want that quick fix and good programs don’t get quick results like that. I think that has been our biggest problem.”
