Knight, BHS golfer, sixth at state
Maier leads ‘successful’ Bearden boys season


Allie Knight capped off what Bearden head coach John Heins labeled a “pretty good year” with a sixth-place finish at the TSSAA Class AAA Girls Golf Tour-nament Tuesday, Oct. 7, at Old Fort Golf Course in Murfrees-boro.

Knight, a sophomore, fired a 77 in a rain-shortened 18-hole tournament.

“She played well ... she got up and down real well,” Heins said. “She was real happy. For a sophomore, sixth in the state is pretty good.”


As District 4-AAA champ, Knight led a Lady Bulldogs team that qualified for Region 2-AAA thanks to a second-place district finish. “We had a good year, beat Farragut once this year, which was a goal of ours,” Heins said.

“Ariel Notte was a four-year letterman, she had a good little career,” he added. “Freshman Kelli Pemberton got a little bit better. ... She’s going to be a good player.”

BHS BOYS’ SEASON

Runner-up to eventual Class AAA state champ Farragut in the 4-AAA tournament, the Bearden boys met the team’s goal of “getting to the region,” Heins said. “This year was a success.”

Sophomore Jeff Maier, BHS’s low man at district (75), has room to improve. “He’s still growing, you can see it,” Heins said. “He takes it seriously.”

Senior Owen Shirk “was our team leader this year, had a good year for us,” Heins said.

Looking ahed to 2009, “We’re going to have a pretty good little team next year,” the BHS skipper said about his boys.

“Brad Bartram's going to be a senior, his game’s really improved,”

Heins added. “Ben [Reeves] is going to be a sophomore and Jeff’s going to be a junior.”
