A fast start helped the Farragut High School girls basketball team snap a lengthy losing streak to its longtime rival.

Farragut opened a 13-3 advantage when junior Brooke Christian nailed a 3-pointer midway into the opening period. Sydney Chapman, another junior, had an old-fashioned three-point play a short time later to give FHS a 19-5 lead.

Dawgs pull away at Farragut

Bearden High School’s boys basketball team kept its perfect record intact Friday night, Dec. 8. But Bulldogs head coach Jeremy Parrott was less than pleased.

“The fact that we’re finding ways to win pleases me, but we’ve still got a long way to go,” Parrott said after Bearden used a huge fourth quarter to pull away and earn a 76-53 District 4-AAA victory over rival Farragut before a near capacity crowd in FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium. “This is a great bunch of kids but we’ve got to start things better.

“Somewhere down the line, somebody’s going to make us pay for these lackadaisical starts. When our backs are up against the wall, we play better for some reason,” he added.
