CAK boys golf clears first hurdle toward A/AA state repeat try
Schubert ‘playing well’ for Lady Warriors

The first hurdle was cleared as Christian Academy of Knoxville boys golf team looks to repeat as Class A/AA state champions.

But it was close, as the Warriors used a 6-foot par putt on the final hole from Taylor Payne to help preserve a one-stroke victory against runner-up Alcoa in a Sub-District 3-A/AA match at Toqua Golf Course, Tellico Village, Tuesday, Sept. 14.

“Some-one who has stood out the last couple of weeks is Taylor Payne,” CAK head coach Hank Fennell said about his No. 4 golfer who shot a 39 at sub-district. “We're at a better place mentally to start the post season this year than we were last year.” Lee Whitehead and Anderson Payne led CAK by each firing a 9-hole 38. No. 1 Kory Webb joined Taylor Payne with a 39.

District 3-A/AA Tournament was held Tuesday, Sept. 21, at Willow Creek Golf Course. Region 2-A/AA Tournament is Monday, Sept. 27, at Landmark Golf Club at Avalon.

For the Lady Warriors, team No. 1 Sophia Schubert and No. 2 Emery Ward continue to be a one-two punch.

Led by a four-under par effort at Holston Hills, “Sophia's played really well,” Fennell said. “She's only had one bad round that I can think of.”

Ward “has been improving, she's a really hard worker. She's getting lessons and spending a lot of time practicing.”
