White leads FHS boys golf to district title

TOWNSEND — A double-bogey on the 18th hole was good enough, as Farragut High School’s boys edged West by one stroke to win the District 4-AAA golf tournament at Lambert Acres Monday.

Though FHS junior Charlie Holman double-bogeyed the 18th-hole, it was good enough.

Meanwhile, Bearden’s fourth-place finish (four-player score of 304) eliminates the Bulldogs from further team competition.

However, four BHS golfers are still alive to compete as individuals in next week’s region tournament. More on BHS later in this story.

The Admirals (292, four over par) join West (293) and third-place Maryville (299) heading to LaFollette Monday for the Region 2-AAA Tournament.

Individually, Admiral senior Blair White won the district title with an 18-hole total of 69.

“He played really well,” FHS head coach Mike Driver said. “He made about a seven-foot putt for par on the last hole to hold onto his one-shot lead over Bud Reynolds (West). I was real happy for Blair, he’s worked real hard to go from sixth man last year (on the FHS team) to number one man this year and win the district this year.”

Brandon Bunn and Jason Brittain each shot 74, with Holman adding a 75. “Everybody played well,” Driver said.


Bearden senior Andrew Lenczyk shot 71, good enough for a third-place tie individually at Lambert Acres. Lenczyk, Michael Woods (76), Chase Carroll (78) and Ben Dabbs (79) all earned individual region tourney spots.

As for the BHS team setback, “I’m a little disappointed, but not in the effort,” BHS head coach John Heins said. “We thought we could go to the region and have a shot at the state (tournament).

“I’m proud of ’em, they’ve come a long ways considering what happened last year.”


While the FHS boys whipped Bearden by 15 strokes in a dual match at Willow Creek Golf Club Friday to end the regular season, the Farragut girls made it a sweep by edging BHS by four strokes (75 to 79). Megan Cox (37) and Erika Thornton (38) outlasted Lady Bulldogs Jessie Maier (39) and Mallory Bishop (40).

Both Farragut’s and Bearden’s girls head to Beaver Brook Country Club in Halls Thursday (today) for the girls’ Region 2-AAA Tournament.
