Smith, Johnson among top ‘private’ athletes at state; CAK: one for the thumb?

Region 1-A/AA region runner-up in the decathlon, Harrison Smith will be looking to duplicate region championships in the triple jump and high jump at this week’s TSSAA state meet in Murfreesboro.

Smith, a Knoxville Catholic senior and Notre Dame football signee, helped KCHS finish second as a team in region while setting a meet record in the triple jump (46-feet-04.00). The Irish standout competed in the state decathlon May 21-22, (after press deadline). He also qualified for state in long jump

Boys field events run from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Friday, May 25, at Middle Tennessee State University.

On the girls private school side, Webb junior Glory Johnson looks to duplicate region championships in the 100-meter dash (:12.13), 200 dash (:24.79) and long jump (18-02.25).

Webb Lady Spartan Amber Zimmerman, region champ in the 3200 run (11:28.30), joins Claire Smith, state qualifier in the 100-high hurdles, 300-hurdles and shot put. Also, the 4 X 800 and 4 X 200 Webb girls relay teams earned state berths.

Catholic’s girls state qualifiers are Ashley West in the 1600 run and Mallory Mrozik in the pentathlon, held May 21.

Christian Academy of Knoxville’s girls qualified in both the 4 X 400 and 4 X 800 relays, the latter based on a first-place region finish and meet record (10:00.57).

The girls track and field state meet is Thursday, May 24, with running events set to begin at 6 p.m.

Webb’s boys earned state qualifiers in the 4 X 100, 4 X 200 and 4 X 400 relays. State boys running events begin at 6 p.m., Friday.


CAK’s boys soccer team is looking to add to its dynasty this week, attempting to win its fifth consecutive Class A/AA state soccer crown.

But archrival Catholic, Region 2-A/AA champs with a 1-0 victory against the Warriors May 17, looks to go one step beyond its state runner-up finish last year.

Webb’s appearance in the Division II state tournament gives westside private schools a state appearance sweep.

A quarterfinal win Wednesday, May 23 (after press deadline) would have CAK (15-5-2) in the semifinals against the J. North Side-Chattanooga Christian winner tonight (Thursday) at 6:30 p.m. CDT at Richard Siegel Soccer Complex Field No. 5.

If Catholic (19-3-2) survived its opener, the Westview-Hume Fogg winner awaits tonight at 7 p.m. CDT on Field No. 10. The state title game is at noon, Saturday, May 26, in the MTSU stadium.
