On the eve of the first day of the 2016-17 school year at Toombs County High School, a large crowd turned out for the “Meet the Bulldogs”. Members of all the fall sports teams were introduced by their coaches. Kate Parker introduced members of the spirit and competition cheerleading teams, Noah Bullard the Red Coat Marching Band, Michael Alford the cross country team, Tom Brodnax the volleyball team, Brian Fitzgerald the softball team and Richie Marsh introduced the Bulldog football team.
In addition law enforcement officers were honored and they each reached a pass to attend all TCHS sports for free. Athletic director Bill Benton addressed the audience as did new TCHS principal Melanie Harden McLemore.
