The Georgia Athletic Director’s Association (GADA) has developed a scoring system, called the Regions Bank Director’s Cup, to rank athletic departments in the state. Using a scoring system crafted in the fall of 1997-98, the GADA Board worked with their representatives to model a system similar to the NCAA’s Sears Director’s Cup. Based on a school’s success in sports like baseball, basketball, cheerleading, football, golf, soccer, swimming, tennis and wrestling the GADA tracks teams in three categories: performances for boys, girls and the entire athletics program.
In Class 5A, Rome’s Boys now hold the number one position for the State of Georgia, raising last year’s third place position at this same time last year. The Lady Wolves dropped a few spots from the 20th position and now hold a 28th-place ranking.
Overall, Rome Athletics are ranked 16th out of all teams in Georgia’s Class 5A division.
Under Athletic Director and Head Football Coach, John Reid’s leadership, the Wolves have consistently hovered around the top spots on this list, including a sixth-place overall ranking out of all Georgia teams in Class 5A last year.
