There are no coaches or teams. The building and athletic facilities are still under construction.

But the future Green Hill High School will have a district and region home for most of its athletic programs when it opens in August, according to a Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association press release sent out Tuesday morning.

The school has requested membership in TSSAA, whose Board of Control will meet at 9 a.m. today at its Hermitage headquarters to vote on that and other matters.

School officials have told TSSAA some 1,200 students in grades 9-12 are expected to enroll at the new school.

TSSAA staff have already penciled the Hawks in District 9-AAA with Wilson County rivals Mt. Juliet, Wilson Central and Lebanon for basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball and soccer; Large Class Section 3 in cross country, track & field, golf and tennis; District 12 in bowling and Region 6-AAA in wrestling.

There was no mention of football in the release.

Since the 2020 football season is the second year of the two-year scheduling cycle, the Hawks aren't expected to be able to get a full varsity schedule the first year and their eventual football region is unknown as TSSAA will go through another re-classification process next school year for 2021-25.
