Athletics[edit]

Toombs County High School's sports teams are known as the Bulldogs. The nickname “Bulldogs” was adopted from Lyons High School which was combined with Toombs Central School in 1987 to make Toombs County High School. Though the nickname “Bulldogs” was retained the Lyons High School colors were changed from red, white, and black to red, white, and navy to represent Toombs Central school who’s colors were yellow and navy. The Bulldogs compete in the Georgia High School Association's class AA in region 2-AA. The Bulldogs are competitive in all sports but have historically been more competitive in football, Baseball, and Wrestling. Toombs County plays Vidalia High School each year in the "Cross Town Showdown." Vidalia is the Bulldogs most hated rival. Toombs County has won one State Championship in school history which was in Baseball in 1996.

Football[edit]

The current Head Coach of the Bulldogs is Shane Williamson who has a career record of 57-43-2 and a 15-19 record as coach of Toombs County.

Booster Stadium[edit]

Toombs County plays in Booster Stadium locally known as "The Pit" due to it being dug into the ground rather than being on ground level like most high school stadiums. Booster Stadium also boasts a Tunnel that connects the rear parking lot with the playing surface which is rare among high school stadiums. Booster Stadium is known as a tough place to play due to the high level of crowd noise and it's hard, unforgiving playing surface. Toombs County Board of Education officials have toyed with the idea of renovating Booster Stadium over the past few years. Renovations would include new home stands where the visitor stands are currently located and a new field house.
