Led by Parker, BHS hoop boys off to 3-0 start


Led by the scoring of 6-foot-4 junior post Nathan Parker, the Bearden High School varsity boys basketball team started 3-0 last week with a sweep during the Hall of Fame Classic at Johnson County High School, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 16-17.

Parker’s 29 points led the Bulldogs past Watauga, N.C. 73-57 Saturday morning before Bearden completed a doubleheader sweep by whipping Cloudland 60-42 that evening behind Parker’s 18 points.

Bulldog head coach Mark Blevins said Parker is his “most improved player, Nathan is really dedicating himself.”

Junior wing Gabe Campbell scored 11, with senior point guard Marcus Webb adding 10.

Opening with a 65-42 victory against Unaka Nov. 16, Parker’s 12 points led the way followed by 10 from freshman Galen Campbell.

Despite the wins, “We’ve got a long way to go,” Blevins said, adding the team, similar to last season, is behind schedule due mainly to injuries.

Next up for Bearden is the 16-team Land-Air Invitational at Greeneville High School, which began Monday, Nov. 19.

“That one will be real tough,” Blevins said, listing the teams to include a 2007 Mississippi state champion from “a big school class” and a team from Canada.

“Everybody’s a heavyweight.”
