CAK Webb KCHS fall sports




WEBB SCHOOL

• Having lost four key players from last season, Dennis Ray’s Lady Spartans’ volleyball team is “a work in progress” according to the coach after a win versus Lenoir City and a loss to Alcoa. Leaders are seniors Sarah Blair, a middle hitter, and Emily Dupree, a right-side hitter.

• Coach Jan Meccia said her Webb girls golf team “is very young” but with experience has a “really big opportunity to win big” in 2007. Meccia said “everything is coming together” for team number one player Leigh Henderson, a sophomore, who shot 158 during 36 holes of a match at the Honors Course in Chattanooga. As for team No. 2 Rachel Holloway, a freshman, “I’m expecting great things from her,” Meccia said, adding she has “power” off the tee and is “smart.” A pair of eighth-graders, Claire Wickenden and Allison Smith, are contributing.

• A pair of Division II All-state runners plus another All-KIL performer return for Warren Heiser’s Spartan boys cross country team. Seniors Haseeb Rahman and Eric Hultquist were All-state last fall, while senior Reed Kramer was All-KIL. Closely bunched thereafter, Heiser said, are seniors Ben Prichett and Andrew Stein, junior Chris Mitchell and freshmen Lucas Jones and Jake Fuqua.

KNOXVILLE CATHOLIC

• Coach Dianne Dieterich said she “doesn’t know what to expect from her KCHS boys cross country team one season removed from a No. 3 finish at the Class A/AA state meet. But seven top runners from 2005 have graduated, representing five of the Region 2-A/AA’s top 10 runners last season. Top runners this year, Dieterich said, are senior Connor Beaver, junior Brent Lowinski, sophomore Gideon Wilson and freshman Ricky Schulte. The Lady Irish, despite having no seniors, “Will do really, really well, I think,” Dieterich said, adding she envisions a “top two” finish in the region. Sophomores Lauren Jacobi and Madison Fox, and juniors Jace Howanitz and Allison Lubert lead the way.

• Led by sophomore Mike Markiewicz, the Catholic boys golf team handed Halls its first loss in 25 matches earlier this month at Gettysvue. Markiewicz, who shot a 35 (one under par) recently at Fox Den Country Club in a match versus Farragut and Bearden, said he and his teammates “have improved so much over a year, it’s incredible.” Behind Markiewicz is No. 2 Paokeo Proctor, No. 3 Patrick Proctor, No. 4 Jack Gillespie and No. 5 Zach Zondlo.

• Winning five of six matches in the KIL tourney, then reaching the semifinals of the annual Early Bird tournament, the KCHS volleyball team carried an 11-2 record into this week’s action. Head coach Mike Jones praised “senior leadership” while praising the entire team for being “close, playing very hard” while “being fun to be around.” Senior leaders are outside hitter Karen Wolf, “One of the best all-around players in the area,” Jones said. Setter Natalie Deuschle “runs the whole show” and displays “good awareness,” Jones said. Senior Back row specialist is Mallory Mrozik. “We go ten deep against everybody,” Jones said about his team’s depth.

CHRISTIAN ACADEMY

• Head coach Cindy Giles said each of her cross country teams features a pair of standout upperclassmen runners. The Lady Warriors, who finished sixth out of 11 teams during last week’s Panther Creek Invitational in Morristown, are led by senior Hali Ford, a top 15 finisher, and junior Curry Campbell, a leg on CAK’s Class A/AA state champion 4 X 400 relay foursome in track and field. The boys, fourth out of 11 in Morristown, are led by seniors Derrick Thomas and Jay Meservy, who finished in the top 10.

• Led by University of Kentucky commitment Laura Novikoff, a senior forward, the CAK girls soccer team opened the season with a 2-2 tie versus Sweetwater. Head coach Nathan Pifer labels Novikoff “pretty strong” and “probably the leader” of a team otherwise lacking stars but yet is “solid.” Freshman Brittany Hoffman also scored versus Sweetwater.
