Titles, FHS 4 X 100 boys’ record help wrap ’12-13A final look at Farragut-area high school sports for the 2012-13 season always leads to Murfreesboro, where a sophomore star in field events, a 4 X 800 relay team and lots of tennis players came up golden.
Among the scores of top athletes not winning state titles, however, were five Farragut High School track and field athletes who still reached new levels of success.
Hardin Valley Academy’s Tamia Crockett, only a sophomore, captured Class AAA state titles in shot put (38-feet-09) and discus (125-feet-04) while leading her Lady Hawks to a fourth-place state finish.
Christian Academy of Knoxville tennis boys won Class A-AA state title, while its girls track 4 X 800 relay team (10:01.27) did the same.
Webb School of Knoxville won both girls and boys state crowns in Division II-A. That’s in addition to Anna Catherine Feaster, Webb junior, winning Division II-A girls singles state title. read more
Town rec volleyball ‘Awesome’
‘Sauce’ win Monday Rec tourney; Rough Sets No. 2Unlike its championship game opponent Rough Sets, Awesome Sauce didn’t have matching jerseys throughout town of Farragut’s Monday Recreation League Sand Volleyball Spring Tournament June 3.
However, it took a lot of style for Awesome Sauce to rally from a 25-17 deficit (first team to 30 wins if having at least a 2-point lead) and go unbeaten during tourney play, 4-0, to capture the championship with a 30-28 victory at Mayor Bob Leonard Park.
“That’s what makes us awesome,” team captain Travis Bullington said with a laugh, as Awesome Sauce also won Monday Rec League regular season honors while losing just one game. “We used our only time-out of the season and we came back.
“They got our competitive juices flowing.”
Other Awesome Sauce players are Lara Davis, Ben Greening, Chris Metts, Hemal Patel, Lauren Rosch and Lauren Metts. read more
