2009 Champions
FHS baseball, boys soccer, CAK soccer all grab familiar hardware at ‘Spring Fling’


For Farragut High School baseball, the pitching of sophomore southpaw starter Philip Pfieifer plus the shut-down late-inning relief of senior Mac Thoreson were clutch toward the Ads winning yet another state crown.

These efforts came in a nail-biting 2-1 win against Mt. Juliet in the Class AAA state title game Friday, May 22, during TSSAA “Spring Fling” in Murfreesboro (team celebration picture). This latest title gives FHS head coach Tommy Pharr five state crowns the past seven seasons (39-5 record in 2009).


Not to be outdone is Wallie Culbreth’s FHS Admirals boys soccer. Using an air-tight defense that allowed just one post-season goal with timely goal-scoring all season, these Ads whipped Brentwood 2-0 in the Class AAA state title game Saturday. It was Culbreth’s fourth state crown since 2003. Led by senior midfielder Trevor Grieco plus a junior class whose efforts in 2009 surprised even Culbreth, FHS finished with a 22-2-2 record.

On the private side is found the most impressive westside state streak. Tom Gerlach’s Christian Academy of Knoxville boys soccer won its sixth Class A-AA crown in seven years by beating Alcoa 4-2.
