Farragut takes control in 4-AAA

Though Anderson County continues to have Farragut’s number in high school girls soccer, the Lady Admirals enjoyed the number 10 late last week.

Beating Lenoir City and William Blount in straight games Sept. 18, Farragut improved to 10-0 in District 4-AAA after beating Heritage in straight game before rallying from a 2-0 game deficit to trip Maryville Thursday, Sept. 20, in FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium.

“Thursday night was a struggle,” FHS head coach David Moore said of the MHS match, in which Farragut fell behind 22-25, 25-27 before reeling off 25-14, 25-14 and 15-8 game victories. "We had a little determination and came back and changed the momentum. ... Hopefully that’s the sign of a championship team to come back from that, show a lot of guts, and come back and win.”

Farragut, which enters the week 35-8 overall, had several individuals step up last week.

“I thought Cara Gregg had a good match, a good week,” Moore said about his junior. “She served extremely well.”

“Everyone kinda knows Amanda [Mitchell’s] our big hitter, but Ariel [Lebert] and Cara and Kylann [Scheidt] all had big hitting nights [Sept. 20].”

Lady Admiral setters Julia Mathes and Scheidt “both had a good week setting, and have done a good job all year with that,” Moore said.

Bottom line: “It was just a great team effort this week,” Moore said. “They all contributed.”

Farragut lost to Anderson County 3 games to 1 Sept. 17 at FHS, falling to the powerful Class A/AA program for the third straight time this season.

Farragut will host rival Bearden and William Blount tonight {Thursday, Sept. 27].
