KCHS Webb CAK fall sports




KNOXVILLE CATHOLIC

• The Catholic volleyball team came away with five wins in eight matches and finished fifth against 32 of the best teams in state and surrounding area at the annual Choo-Choo tournament in Chattanooga Sept 8-9. Holding a 21-5 overall record entering the week, Mike Jones’ Lady Irish have been led by senior outside hitter Karen Wolf, “the heart and soul of our team,” Jones said. Senior setter Natalie Deuschle also earned praise fromm the coach. “She and Karen have provided a lot of leadership, and they both played well over the weekend,” Jones said. Also wining praise was junior middle hitter Jessica Lane. Catholic victims in Chattanooga included Cleveland, Donaldson Christian, Eagleville and Red Bank. Other 2006 victims have included perennial Class A/AA state power Anderson County, Maryville, Alcoa and CAK.

• With sophomore Mike Markiewicz leading the way with a 37.6 scoring average per nine holes, the KCHS boys golf team held a 7-3-1 record entering the week. During a decisive match win versus CAK at Avalon, freshman Jack Gillespie was low scorer for the Irish. Patrick Proctor, Parker Proctor, and Zach Zondlo have also contributed. The KCHS girls (6-4 entering the week) are led by sophomore Katie Letsinger and seniors Jessica Armstrong and Audrey Safi. Letsinger shot a 39 earlier this season at Royal Oaks in Blount County.

• Though injuries have been hampering coach Mark Leader’s KCHS soccer team, the Lady Irish built a 3-2 overall record entering this week following a 3-1 victory against Kingston Thursday, Sept. 7. Forward Gretchen Sutch, the team’s leading scorer, had one goal and one assist in the win. Forward Anna Hickey is among those playing injured.

WEBB SCHOOL

• Among a 324-runner field, Webb cross country standout Ataseeb Rahman won the annual Cherokee Boulevard meet in Knoxville Saturday, Sept. 2, with a time of 16:18.

• Winning four matches and finishing third during the annual VolleyDog Challenge at Bearden High School Saturday, Sept. 9, Dennis Ray’s Webb volleyball team began the week with a 10-7 overall record. “We played the best we’ve played all year against Alcoa,” coach Ray said of a 25-19, 25-20 win at BHS. The Lady Spartans also defeated Livingston Academy, William Blount and Clarksville. Ray said senior outside hitter Emily Dupree has “really stepped it up lately.” (see picture and caption, page 18)

• The Lady Spartan soccer team was 2-2 entering the week, having beaten Halls and Lenoir City. “I like my team a lot, it’s a very young team,” said Webb head coach and school president Scott Hutchinson.

• In her first-ever cross country meet, Webb freshman Amber Zimmerman won the Victor Ashe All-Comers meet Thursday, Sept 7 (20:13). “We know it’s a huge accomplishment to come out and win your first high school meet,” said Webb girls head coach Laura Kile said. Meanwhile, the Spartan boys took fourth.

CHRISTIAN ACADEMY

• Coach Hank Fennell’s Warrior boys golf team won its first match of 2006 in Oneida Sept. 7. The boys are led by seniors Tom Burnett, Kory Taylor, Dan Olson, Kellen Leland and freshman Chris Shields. Meanwhile, the Lady Warriors are led by sophomore Peyton Richie, described by Fennell as “probably my best player, boys or girls. She’s good, really intense. She can hit it just as far as the guys can. Pretty accurate, also.” Freshman Molly Taylor is also a contributor.

• Unbeaten entering the week thanks to wins against Scott County, Lenoir City and Kingston — combining to score 22 goals in those games — the CAK girls soccer team entered the week 3-0-1. “Offensively, we have the firepower, and we’re not giving many shots up to the other team,” CAK head coach Nathan Pifer said. Senior Laura Novikoff has scored “most of the goals,” including four in a 9-0 win versus Scott County. Freshman Brittany Hoffman added three goals in that game.
