Freshman Schubert confident


Though Christian Academy of Knoxville’s blue and gold-clad girls will be green experience-wise, they’ve landed a prized freshman building block.

Ranked nationally among girls 18-and-under, freshman Sophia Schubert said she “got two top fives” in a pair of American Junior Golf Association national tournaments.

“I also got fifth in the U.S. Kids World [tournament] when I was 10 or 11, I forget the year,” she added about a world field tourney in Williamsburg, Va.

Only 14, Schubert (pictured) said her strength “definitely is driving. I’m probably one of the longest junior girls in Tennessee. I’ll average 240, almost 250 [yards].”


With no apparent lack of confidence, Schubert said her 2010 goal “is to win state. I’m one of the best in East Tennessee. I’m second [ranked] in state ... for any girls [18-and-under].”

Hank Fennell, CAK head coach, said Schubert “is going to be pretty solid for us. ... she plays all over the place.”

Other CAK girls looking to contribute are senior Maloy Dorman and freshman Emery Ward.
