Farragut, BHS girls golf


At The Ridges Golf and Country Club in Jonesboro Saturday and Sunday against a high-quality seven-team field according to Farragut High School head coach Mike Driver, the FHS girls proved their depth.

Though dividing up into a “blue” team and a “gray” team, the Lady Ads still managed to finish second and third, respectively.

Meanwhile, with its two top players leading the way, the Bearden High School girls golf team beat Webb by 13 strokes at Willow Creek Golf Club (72 to 85) during a nine-hole dual match Aug. 18.

More on the BHS girls and both boys’ teams later in this story.


FARRAGUT GIRLS

Finishing 15 shots behind champion and course host University High (320) during the two-day event, Farragut’s “blue” team of Megan Cox, Jillian Brodd and Erika Thornton finished second with a score of 335. The FHS “gray” team of Carolyn Levy and Alyssa Randolph was third at 338.

Levy’s 165 total was low among the two FHS teams, allowing her to finish fifth overall, seven strokes behind the individual champ. Cox and Brodd tied at 168.

BEARDEN GIRLS

“Mallory (Bishop) and Jesse (Maier) are really playing good right now,” BHS head coach John Heins said. “Mallory shot thirty-four and Jesse shot thirty-eight. I was proud of our girls there.”

Overall, “Our girls are playing good right now, and they’re real steady,” Heins added.

FHS BOYS

Against Halls and Lenoir City at Avalon last Thursday, “the boys played really well,” Driver said of an easy 24-shot victory (147 versus Halls’ 171).

Jason Brittain “played real well for us, he shot one-under-par (35),” Driver said. Bunn shot 37 and Blair White added a 37.

In his first varsity match, Tyler Schaefer “played well” according to Driver, shooting 38.

BHS BOYS

Because of what Heins labeled as “a little bit of overconfidence,” the Bearden boys finished second to Oak Ridge (160 to 166) at Oak Ridge Country Club against ORHS and Clinton Aug. 19.

“Hopefully that was a wake-up call, we’ll see how they respond,” Heins said.

Earlier last week, the BHS boys whipped Lenoir City by a stunning 46 strokes Aug. 16 at Willow Creek.
