The son of Amanda Price, Heathcock is a 6’-7” power forward and center for the Wildcats varsity boys basketball team.

He serves as the team’s captain and leading player.

“He is a hard working student athlete that embodies what it means to be a Woodland Wildcat,” said Wildcats’ head coach Jacob Selman. “He is someone who strives to be the best that he can be. He serves a pivotal role in leading the competitive spirit of our team and will continue as the key piece to our success this season.”

Heathcock scored 17 and 22 points in the Wildcats’ two most recent games.

He plans to go to college and continue his basketball career. He has been recruited by several schools and has recently received an offer from Johnson University.

She is the daughter of Crystal Davidick and Chuck Smith.

Smith is a senior and a captain of the Colonels’ swim team.

She is a three-year letter award winner and excels in multiple competitive swim styles.

“She is determined and always puts in the extra work necessary to perfect her swim techniques,” said Cass swim coach Danny Fairbanks. “She is a master of all four swim strokes utilized in competitions.”

Smith is competing this season in the 100- and 200-yard freestyle as an individual. She is also part of the Lady Colonels’ 200 yard medley relay and 200-yard freestyle relay teams.

“She is a devoted team leader,” continued Fairbanks. “She diligently helps her teammates improve their skills as swimmers and always provides encouragement for them as valuable members on our team. Kaya truly leads by example. She ‘Loves Blue and Lives Gold’ in the tradition of a Cass Colonel.”

Smith is an honor student and participates in the dual enrollment program with Georgia Highlands College. She intends to pursue a college degree in Biology and further pursue a Masters Degree in Biotechnology.

Kaya states the most enjoyable thing about being a Captain of the Cass swim team is: “Spending time with her teammates and helping the younger swimmers learn and succeed in their swim techniques.”


Tee Webb is the Elite Athlete of the Month for Cartersville High School for November 2019. The Hurricanes’ senior quarterback is the son of Tracy and Marion Webb.

Webb, who has committed to play college football at the University of Louisville, finished his high school football career as the second leading passer in Cartersville High School history. He threw for more than 2,600 yards and completed over 60% of his passes during his senior season.

“Tee is an outstanding student-athlete with a 3.3 GPA. He has been a servant leader in our program for four years,” said Canes’ head coach Conor Foster. “His hard work, passion for the game, passion for the Cartersville football program, and servant attitude has left a tremendous legacy within our program.”
