Meanwhile, early January victories against Karns and Knoxville Catholic vaulted the Farragut High School freshman boys basketball team record to 7-1. (More on the FHS boys later in this story).

FHS GIRLS NO. 1

In what coaches described as a “fast-paced” championship game against Scott County, Farragut took home the championship with a 72-56 victory.

The opening game was a 39-37 win against Seymour followed by a 52-47 victory versus Oliver Springs.

Farragut will host a freshman girls tournament Feb. 4, 8 and 11 and will be expecting some of the areas best freshman girls teams.

With freshman head coach Jennifer Eidemiller out of town during the tournament, junior varsity girls head coach Wes Edmonds led the team during the tournament.

"It was a lot of fun for me to coach this team, they are a great group of girls and coach Eidemiller really had this team ready to play and they were very prepared and read to go,” Edmonds said.

Freshman team members are Brittany Reveiz, Brittany Doss, Stephanie Torrence, Jennifer Rutherford and Whitney Newby, Anna King, Christina Santa, Brandi Collins, Brooke LeGate, Erin LeGate and Meghan Breidenbach.

Sam Watson led FHS with 20 points. Austin Bolen, who coach Benny Lyle said “had a great game,” scored 10. John Jester, back from an ankle injury, had seven points. “Every player contributed and played well,” Lyle said.

Beating Karns 63-44 Thursday, Jan. 5, Farragut started fast thanks to what Lyle labeled as “great inside play” from Bolen, racing to a 10-0 lead.

Watson again led the scoring parade, this time with 22. Bolen added 18 followed by Nate Clark with 10 and Jonathan Moore with six points.

Matt Oglesby “had some nice minutes” according to Lyle, going 2-of-2 from the field while adding a steal and one rebound. Connor Stank had Farragut’s only three-point basket.
