• Looking to break a TSSAA record next spring, Christian Academy of Knoxville High School baseball standout Ryan Cooper signed with Atlantic Coast Conference power Clemson University (S.C.) last week. According to school officials, the Warrior senior is close to breaking the all-time Tennessee high school batting average, which is .500. Cooper’s career average is .482, currently ranking him second all-time, and is 15 doubles and two grand slams from breaking two other state records. Having attended three Clemson summer camps, Cooper has been selected Best Fielder at each camp among 700 participants.

• Gregory Gill, Webb School of Knoxville Upper School tennis coach and director of Rocky Top Tennis, has been certified by Professional Tennis Registry, the world's largest international organization of tennis teachers and coaches. Gill, a former Central High School standout, played collegiately at Emory & Henry. At Rocky Top Tennis, Gill oversees more than 30 state-ranked junior players.

• Webb School of Knoxville senior Berkeley Brock has committed to play tennis for North Carolina State University (Raleigh) Tuesday, Nov. 15, in Webb’s Athletic Center. Brock was a huge contributor on Webb’s three state tennis championship teams (2002, 2004, 2005), and along with doubles partner, Elizabeth Googe, (Class of 2005), made state history this past May by winning their fourth consecutive Division II state doubles title, setting a new TSSAA doubles record (all classifications included). A four-time All-State player, Berkeley has been USTA nationally-ranked in every division: girls 12s, 14s, 16s, and 18s. Berkeley is the recipient of Webb’s Spartan Award, the school’s highest honor for an athlete.
