Farragut Gun Club draws capacity crowd ■


A standing room only Farragut Gun Club audience of roughly 90 heard from two unexpected, yet well received, speakers during the club’s first ever meeting Monday evening, Feb. 10, in Gander Mountain’s “The Lobby.” Farragut resident Eva Irwin

spoke about her founding of Aphrodite Shooters, a local women’s gun club started in 2013 with about 80 members. “I enjoyed it all, but I was particularly impressed to see Ms. Irwin because I think it’s really encouraging to see women getting involved in shooting sports and protecting our Second Amendment rights,” said Rick

Thompson of Farragut, joined by his wife, Edna Thompson. Rodney Sams said, “I was interested in the women’s shooting club because my wife [Jan] enjoys shooting. We just moved [to the Farragut area] from Pennsylvania. And also I thought we’d try and meet some people.” Dressed in their Wild West attire, Oak Ridge Sportsman’s

Club — nicknamed “Outlaws” — came roughly 12 strong (about 100 members). Outlaw “Hombre Sin Nombre” [most members only give out their alias] also was a surprise speaker not originally on the docket. “Cactus Red” said his Outlaws, many of whom also compete in “regional and national shooting

championships,” were eager to show up in support of FGC. “We’re going to help encourage and support this group, that’s why we wanted to show up; just to show them our support,” he said. “Most of us will end up joining here as well.” Led by club founder Bill Johns, See CLUB on Page 3A

BOMA increases outdoor classroom budget $255,250


Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted to add $255,250 to the Capital Improvement budget to complete funding for the latest concept of an outdoor classroom off Campbell Station Road. Part of the funds for the project, $100,000 were budgeted in 2013, but only $9,750 was spent, Allison Myers, Town recorder, said. “Therefore, the remaining $90,250 must be appropriated in the current budget,” she added. And, due to the increased project costs, she said an additional $65,000 is needed. Those funds will come from the Capital Improvement Project reserves. She said the project has about $30,000 in grants, which will be reimbursed when the project is completed. Darryl Smith, Town engineer, explained the need for the budget increase at a workshop minutes before the BOMA meeting Thursday, Feb. 13. Town administrator David Smoak said the project has been on the priority list for two to three years. “We budgeted some money

Recalling his grandmother’s early struggles in urban northeastern America as a young, and all alone, immigrant from a tiny Ireland village in the 1920s, Dr. Jim McIntyre Jr. drew parallels in what she overcame versus what Knox County Schools must overcome. A domestic servant, Annie Halloran’s “transition was challenging. For many years, Annie longed to go back to her old life, but she knew that the change was necessary and critical,” McIntyre, in his sixth school year as KCS superintendent, said during his Third Annual State of the Schools address.

“… By making an extreme change, my grandmother created the opportunity for a better life for herself and so many others, including me. I think there’s so many lessons we can take from it,” McIntyre added in his address, held in Hardin Valley Academy auditorium Tuesday evening, Feb. 11. “… For one, a change, especially a radical change, can be especially difficult. But it can also be rewarding, beneficial and truly transformational.” Changes already implemented within KCS’s 89 kindergarten through 12th-grade schools within the past few years “have been breathtaking,” McIntyre said.

Burchett talks Concord annexation during packed mayor’s lunch


Two visitors dining at Sam & Andy’s last Friday came with special requests, both of a ceremonial nature, for Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett. Burchett’s countywide “Lunch With the Mayor” series found a packed dining room in the Farragut restaurant around noon Feb. 7. Burchett, in a one-on-one interview, also voiced his support of pending Tennessee General Assembly legislation that would, in the Farragut area’s case, protect Concord residents from possible forced annexation from town of Farragut. Meanwhile, Nazzy Hashemian

and Ken Mayes were hoping Burchett would “annex” their requests. Hashemian, a Concord resident who is a native of Iran, is looking to honor an Iranian woman, Neda Agha-Solton, who was shot to death while protesting voting rights issues in Iran in June 2009. Wishing to name the Concord Road/Northshore Drive roundabout “Neda’s Vote Circle” in Neda’s honor “and put a statue on it,” Hashemian met with Michael Grider, Burchett’s communications manager, Friday at Sam & Andy’s. She agreed to broach the subject with Burchett, Grider and other Knox officials during a meeting sometime later this month.

“Being here we are so privileged that we can just simply go and vote,” added Hashemian, emphasizing all plaque and statue dollars would be acquired through private funds. “Here you have to beg people to come and vote. And over there people die to go and vote.” At Sam & Andy’s, Burchett also received a special invitation from Knox County’s new Tennessee Association of Vintage Baseball team “playing 1864 rules” according to team member Mayes. “We came over today to ask the Mayor if he’d be interested in throwing out the first pitch for us,” Mayes, a West Knox County See LUNCH on Page 4A

Lenoir City residents arrested on federal charges policereports Joshua Hayworth, 23, and Timothy E. Chudley, 35, both of Lenoir City, were charged on Feb. 5 with federal Hobbs Act violations for their roles in the Jan. 30 robbery of a Lenoir City Burger King restaurant. Chudley was arrested in Knoxville on Feb. 5, without incident, and appeared in federal court the same day. Hayworth was arrested on state charges on Feb. 3, following a series of events, which also resulted in federal carjacking charges against Hayworth. He will appear in federal court at a later date. The criminal complaint on file with the U.S. District Court charges both men with federal Hobbs Act violations, while Hayworth also is charged with carjacking. The complaint

alleges that Hayworth, with the assistance of Chudley, planned the robbery of the Lenoir City Burger King, which was carried out on Jan. 30. According to the complaint, on Feb. 3, Hayworth was observed driving a stolen vehicle in Knoxville, which Hayworth abandoned in a trailer park off Bob Gray Road, as law enforcement pursued. Later the same day, Hayworth is accused of carjacking another vehicle from a pregnant female on Doubletree Lane in Knoxville, which he wrecked on Bob Gray Road. After fleeing on foot, it is alleged that Hayworth broke into a residence, where he was apprehended by law enforcement. Follow-up investigation by the multiple agencies involved uncovered Chudley’s role in the

robbery scheme. The arrests are the result of joint efforts by multiple law enforcement agencies, including the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, composed of the FBI, Knoxville Police Department, Knox County Sheriff’s Office, Lenoir City Police Department, Loudon County Sheriff’s Office and Clinton Police Department. Assistant U.S. attorney Kelly Norris will represent the United States. Members of the public are reminded that the complaint constitutes only charges and that every person is presumed innocent until their guilt has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

the meeting also featured Dr. Richard Briggs, Fifth District Knox County Commissioner and candidate for state Senate District 7 seat. Josh Hill, retail showroom assistant manager with Smoky Mountain Knife Works in Sevierville, also spoke for just under 15 minutes. Jaye Wolfe said she “really wanted to know more about the Guns in Parks law; that’s very confusing lately. There’s a new article in every paper all the time, and it’s confusing about where you can carry your gun and be legal in these parks. We just need [one law] statewide.” If close to Farragut Town limits in a park that’s approaching Knox County, “You don’t know if you’re within the law or not,” Wolfe said.

About the meeting, “I thought it was very interesting,” Wolfe said. “I do plan to be back.” Concord resident Kevin Desmond said, “It’s important to come to these kinds of meetings because our Second Amendment is under attack like probably never before in our lifetimes,” adding he’s planning on attending future meetings if able. “I was impressed with the guy who headed it up [Johns]. I thought he did a good job keeping it under control,” Desmond added. Edna Thompson labeled the evening “a friendly gathering. I sure enjoyed it. … I will probably come with him next time.” As for why Farragut Gun Club had such a huge turnout, “I think everybody’s a little upset about what’s going on right now in our country,” she added. “They want to protect their rights.”

guestview: Gov. Bill Haslam

Peters’ response I would like to Thank Capt. Jeff Palmer for responding to my 30 Jan 2013 letter. From his response on 13 Feb, it is apparent that a “Letter to the Editor” of the farragutpress is much more effective in obtaining information from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office than telephone conversations and/or emails. Thank you farragutpress! I apologize for the “false assertations” in my 30 Jan letter. I did not realize that I am not a Farragut resident, but live less than one mile outside of the Town boundaries. I was happy to learn that, according to Capt. Palmer’s research, Farragut had a lower reported burglary rate than several nearby cities and towns in 2012. I wonder how Farragut did in 2013, when I was burglarized? Capt. Palmer’s response is also incorrect on several accounts. Specifically, • The Sheriff’s Office did not inform me that they had retrieved any fingerprints during their investigation of my burglary. In fact, Det. Larry Hart told me that there were no prints retrieved. • I never insisted “that investigators conduct a nationwide

search of individual registrations based solely on a racial identifier.” In fact, I requested a database search of the owners of white Acura SUVs in Tennessee and Florida for criminal history, based on video coverage of the burglars obtained from a camera outside the TVA station in Loudon County. This evidence, along with the fingerprints that Capt. Palmer states the investigators retrieved, might provide sufficient probable cause for such a database search. I wonder if this search would be authorized if Capt. Palmer’s home was burglarized? Perhaps not, but aren’t there “Constitutional implications” that protect the rights of victims? In closing, I’ll reiterate the intent of my original letter — to inform folks of my experience so that they might learn from it — and avoid a similar experience. As the editor revealed in his column on 6 Feb, hindsight is 20-20; and I should have stored my valuables in a safe deposit box, not in my home. I should also have hired a private investigator, but as Capt. Palmer states, I am “naïve at best.” Richard D Peters

Last week during my annual State of the State address, I was excited to announce a new proposal called the “Tennessee Promise.” The Tennessee Promise is an ongoing commitment to Tennessee students – f r o m kindergartners to high school seniors. We will prom- Bill ise that Haslam high school Tennessee graduates can attend Governor two years of community college or a college of applied technology absolutely free of tuition and fees. As we urge more Tennesseans to continue their education, we know we have to remove as many barriers as possible. For many Tennessee families, cost is the biggest hurdle to further education. Through the Tennessee Promise, we are fighting the ris-


messages,” Justin said, pointing out numbers such as Tennessee going from 46th up to 37th nationally as a state in K-12 education. He added that raw data, such as “some of the actual numbers and key performance indicators probably hit home harder than ‘We’re doing really, really well and we’re progressing well.’’’ Andy, who has younger brothers in second and fifth grade, said, “You have opinions and how people think about things, but I guess it’s easier to understand, it’s clearer, once you have the numbers.”

• What a joyous article telling of the big turnout for the Adult Only Dance at Farragut Commons, all seemed to have had such nice things to report. I’m getting older and older and yet there is no Community

Center for those of us who have begged for years that one be in place before we are unable to enjoy it. The Senior Center is fun but oh so small and not enough activities offered variety wise. Side Note ~ Wish more men

would attend activities. I know they are out there, but too shy to indulge in mingling with their own kind! Well a gal can dream can’t she.

Lunch resident and one of 11 team members of the Knoxville Holstons, said. “He seemed very excited about having a vintage baseball team in Knoxville.” Burchett’s first pitch would come during the Holstons’ season opener, on the grounds of

Ramsey House in downtown Knoxville, April 12, versus Dry Town Boys of Roane County. About the General Assembly’s pending annexation legislation, Burchett said forced municipal annexation upon any community “is un-American. I still can’t imagine how somebody doesn’t get that to the [U.S.] Supreme Court and it doesn’t get thrown

out just because it’s taxation without representation. It’s taking of land.” “… It’s a property rights issue, and to me that’s just at the core of what we are as a country,” Burchett added. “… They do this without any consent of the property owners.”

probably by mid-summer when we finalized the concept, we all added certain elements, all of them very worthy to be part of this project, but it was too late to go back and change the budget.” Smith said there were some elements the concept could do

without right now but it would cost more to add them at a later date. He offered three options the Board could consider: 1. Remove elements from the project to reduce costs. 2. Eliminate the project alto-

gether. 3. Amend the budget and proceed with the project. Representatives from McGill and Associates, who had the contract on the project, warned the concept would cost more than what the Town had budgeted, but

Smith said he thought there were places the Town could save money. However, the low bid for the project was $355,774.

fill those jobs. Non-profit, private organizations will be part of the Tennessee Promise to help ensure that 100 percent of the money goes directly to the student by eliminating administrative costs. They will provide mentors to help navigate the enrollment process as well as provide support during the school year. Access is only successful when it leads to completion. The Tennessee Promise can only be a true promise if it is sustainable over time. It can’t be based on year-to-year budgets, or changing legislatures, or new administrations. That’s why I recommended funding it through an endowment using lottery reserve funds. This is a bold promise. It is a promise that will speak volumes to current and prospective employers. It is a promise that will make a real difference for generations of Tennesseans. And it is a promise that we have the ability to make. I look forward to working with members of the General Assembly to make the Tennessee Promise a reality for Tennessee families.

ing cost of higher education, and we are raising our expectations as a state. We are committed to making a clear statement to families that education beyond high school is a priority in the state of Tennessee. More Tennesseans have to believe that earning a certificate or degree beyond high school is not only necessary but possible. Tennessee will be the only state in the country to offer our high school graduates two years of community college with no tuition or fees along with the support of dedicated mentors. We are also proposing last dollar scholarships for all adults — regardless of age or previous qualification for a HOPE scholarship — to attend our Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology (TCATs) free of charge. We are putting our resources toward proven results. With 27 locations across the state, our TCATs graduate 81 percent of their students and match more than 86 percent of those graduates with jobs.

Town to host Black History Month event Feb. 23 ■


The Farragut community can learn more about contributions of area African-American residents during a free Black History Month event, hosted by the town of Farragut, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, in Farragut Town Hall. “Loretta Bradley, a museum committee member, always plans the program each year in cooperation with a group of community members,” Julia Jones Barham, Farragut Folklife Museum coordinator, said. Among the community members are Hughie and Christine

Moulden, Jo Ann and Linda Jeter, Vivian Lee Varner, Pauline Bacon, Dorothy and Donald Porter and S h i r l e y Fletcher, all with the Concord Community Program Committee. “I think it’s a program Booker that is a great value to the community,” Barham said. “It’s been something we’ve had annually for several years now, and we always have a good turnout.” Locally, Farragut Folklife

Museum Black History Month Programs were established approximately 18 years ago under the direction of Doris Owens, former Folklife Museum director and Farragut educator, Bradley said. The theme for this year's celebration is "Reflections on Community Contributions." The program includes a reception, a welcome from Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill and a 3 p.m. presentation by Robert Booker, a Knoxville historian and Beck Cultural Exchange Center executive director, Bradley said. “Robert Booker has spoken for us in the past with this program, and he is going to be speaking this

year on the late attorney, Carl Cowan, and his influence no Knoxville and Knox County communities,” Barham said. Cowan was elected to the Knox County Court in 1946 and 1948 and became the first black Bacon assistant district attorney for Knox County in 1953. He served as the lead attorney for several school desegregation cases in Tennessee. Cowan was instrumental in the establishment

of Carl Cowan Park in the mid1940s. Additionally, the program will include a special memorium in honor of the late Limon Bacon, who lived in and volunteered in the Concord and Farragut communities. “Several Farragut and Concord citizens ask us to provide a memoriam to the family of Limon Bacon,” Bradley said. “I would like for the audience to receive an understanding, respect and appreciation of the lives of these two great African-American men who unselfishly devoted their lives to serving all people regardSee BLACK HISTORY on Page 8A

As FHS Chorus director Kenton Deitch prepares the students for that concert, he revels in news he received Wednesday, Feb. 5: the chorus has been invited to perform Mozart’s “Requiem” the summer of 2015 in China with Texas State University and Beijing Conservatory Choir. “That happened yesterday,”

Deitch said. “I knew we were going to China, and I got the e-mail yesterday inviting us to do it.” “I think it will be amazing to go to China and perform with Texas State University and to hear the different cultures come together to sing a piece of music,” Megan See CHORUS on Page 6A

My husband and I went to a neighbor’s surprise birthday party last Saturday night. It’s always exciting to go to this home. The couple is exotic. The birthday man was a concert pianist turned executive of Pam a large Young c o m p a n y. Make it He has an adorable Fun! Belgium accent and is movie star gorgeous. His wife, who is also stunningly beautiful with a tall, slim body crowned by a head of flaming, (not from a bottle) red hair, was an opera singer

turned wife, homemaker and mom. The house is enchanting. It actually looks like an Italian villa perched high on the hill overlooking its own vineyard (all the neighbors are wondering when our resident herd of 36 elk will decide to frisk among the rows of pinot gris grapes). We arrived with our donation to the potluck, hot chili from my freezer. I always make double batches of stews, soups and chili and freeze half. For this party I mixed three different batches (no two are ever alike) spanning three different seasons from last year. The combination was an interesting melting pot of past chili feeds. Michelle, one of our neighbors brought a homemade German Chocolate Cake for dessert. She’s the best baker in the neighborhood and the cake looked alluringly attractive. Nelly (my inner child) said,

“We can have some can’t we?” “No, sugar is poison, remember what we read in Why We Get Fat?” “We’ll it’s Pascal’s party and it wouldn’t be nice to not join in the cake part of his birthday. And you’ll hurt Michelle’s feelings if you don’t eat her cake.” “No, we won’t be stepping on anyone’s feelings by passing on the cake.” “But, I WANT some!” “Don’t get sassy with me Nel, and if I stare much longer at that cake, somebody’ll think I’m stoned or something. Now let’s go find someone to play with.” I left the table and found several good conversations to take Nelly’s part of my mind off the treat. The party was fun and I was basking in the collection of happy people. Suddenly I heard the tinkle of a spoon on someone’s wine

Deitch said 82 of the 160 chorus students will perform Feb 20. The students are chosen for the chorus through an audition process. “I listen for technique, tone quality and their ability to read

music,” the chorus director said.

Kitner, a FHS junior and chorus member, said. Kitner added she thinks she is prepared for the Feb. 20 concert at Farragut High, although she feels there are a couple things on which she needs to work. “I feel like it’s going to be great performance,” Kitner said. Deitch said that concert is in preparation for a contest slated for Feb. 26. “I like to give the kids the opportunity to get up on stage and under the spotlight before going in front of the judges,” Deitch said. During the concert, the students

Kitner said the chorus allows her to be free and relieve stress. “I walk into the classroom and all my burdens and stress are gone,” she said. The chorus students make up beginning male, beginning female, advanced female, advanced mixed groups and madrigal singers. Additionally, part of the group performs singing Valentines on St. Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14. Deitch said by being part of the chorus, he hopes his students will learn how to read music, sing technically correct, appreciate different styles of music and be a lifelong singer.

a larger stage, so to speak,” she said. “It’s that freedom of flying through the air as you jump.” Wagner’s love for skating started when she was 7 1/2 in Nottingham, England, when her parents’ friends invited her to the local ice rink and she loved it. Competitive skating began with one little competition and progressed from there, she said. Wagner was a member of the British International Team for five years – one year as a junior and four years a senior.

“I was fortunate enough to do four European championships and four World championships,” she said. Her highest place at European Championships was seventh, and highest place in the World was 12th. She said the Olympic Games came in the middle of those. After Wagner finished competing in 1986, she spent 13 years a principal show skater, performing with Holiday on Ice; Walt Disney’s World on Ice, Torvill and Dean Ice Adventure and Busch GardensWilliamsburg, to name a few.

glass and Nelly piped up, “It’s time for the cake!” After singing Happy Birthday, Pascal blew out the candles; the cake was cut and passed around. Nelly was upset when I declined the sumptuous plate of chocolate decadence that was offered to me. It was at that moment I suggested to her that we use our “vicarious bite” exercise I wrote about in my book The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here! In it, I discuss how to use our ability to watch someone else enjoying eating something we’d like to eat and get imaginary pleasure just by watching. I picked Shannon. She’s the woman on the cover of The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here! She was such a great sport and allowed being photographed with a mousetrap on her lips. I told her about the “vicarious bite,” and she immediately understood the concept. Then I asked her, “Could I watch you take a few bites of your cake?” She laughed and said, “Sure, let’s sit over there.” We sat on bar stools surrounded by a throng of busy cake eaters who had congregated in the most inviting room in a home, the kitchen. Shannon cut into the cake with her fork and scooped up a bite about the size of a cherry tomato. I sat with my eyes about eight inches from her mouth and carefully watched as the cake-filled fork moved slowly from the plate to her mouth. When she opened her mouth and put the bite in, I moved within four inches of it and watched as she began to delight in

that first bite. “Ummmmm,” she moaned, her eyes slitting to enhance her sense of taste. I watched as her mouth moved and her tongue did its perfect work until it was time to swallow. She opened her eyes to see my face far into her comfort zone, as I expressed utter joy in her exp-erience. She burst out laughing and I could smell the rich chocolate on her breath. “Oh, Shannon, that was good! Take another bite.” “You direct where.” “Right there in the frosting between layers. Get the cake on both sides of the frosting.” “Here?” “No a little to the right!!” “Oh yeah, this is gonna be good. Oh my, ummmmm, ohhhh, this is so good! ”Ummm, yes, I can taste it! Wow, wow.” Just short of making a scene like Meg Ryan made in the restaurant in When Harry Met Sally, Shannon and I enjoyed those two bites of chocolate cake. It was as good for me as it was for her. And I didn’t have to eat sugar! February is, one of candy company’s biggest sales months. If you made a New Year’s Resolution to cut out sugar in 2014, don’t let the push of candy in beautiful heart shaped boxes, jerk you off your resolve. Get your candy fix vicariously.

University of Tennessee, she said. “… I enjoyed it very much. It was great. I loved the kids. Teaching others to do something that I loved to do was amazing.” Performing with Holiday on Ice overseas for a few years in her early 20’s, “I don’t think I probably realized a love for it until I was in my teens,” added Ronayne, estimating she’s taught 600 students at Cool Sports. “What I’ve heard over the years is that I somehow of make it fun for

them,” Ronayne added. “… That’s such a key point to skating. At least in the beginning levels of skating. “I’m a firm believer in the sandwich concept: tell them something good they’ve done, and then sneak in ‘here’s what we’ve got to work on.’” However, as young skaters mature into honing competitive skills, as young as age 6 or 7 according to Ronayne, “It’s tough love time, ‘we’ve got to get this done,’” she added about being more direct in her teaching. As for her current teaching time among roughly 300 skating students ages 3 to past 80, “I person-

ally have four private students and my class of adult skaters that I see on Wednesdays,” she said. “I teach daytime classes on Fridays. … That tends to be home schools. We’ve got seven beginners and five in the intermediate class. She also assists with “basic skills classes on Tuesday evenings, Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons.” Two of those now with Disney on Ice, Sarah Wright and Marsean Oyler, “I got to be with them when they were younger to build them up before passing them on to another coach,” Ronayne said.

Inky Johnson, former Tennessee Volunteers Football defensive back, brought passion and intensity to his roughly 50-minute speech during annual Farragut High School baseball banquet Tuesday evening, Feb. 4. Concord United Methodist Church’s Worship Center featured a packed audience of Admirals players, coaches, parents and other boosters looking to kick off the upcoming 2014 season. The evening included fond remembrance of the late Scott Dean, former FHS assistant coach and Admirals star catcher (Class of 2004). Paralyzed in his right arm following an ill-fated tackle against Air Force Academy in 2006, Johnson shared the struggles of overcoming the devastating and life-changing injury that almost killed him. Johnson also shared his childhood and teenage years, which were filled with poverty and surrounded by crime while growing up in inner city Atlanta.

He estimates the business has existed for 15 years. “I started the business primarily drawing custom maps for people,” Reeves, 70, said. An example he provided would be a pizza business looking for a map that indicates the business’ delivery area. “I can do map creation, digital map creation or paper maps or whatever people want to do,” he said. Printing is most of what Reeves’ business currently does, he said. “I have a large format printer, and people bring me their images to print either on paper or on canvas. ... I produce large prints on paper and canvas for artists and photographers.” Reeves also has done gallery wraps and book publishing, he said. “I have published a few reproductions of historically related books, mostly about Knox County. A few otherwise.” All the books he has republished are older than 1923, Reeves said, and he sells the books on his website. Reeves also sells old map reproductions on the website, he said. “One of which that I’ve sold quite a few of is there is an 1895 map of the county of Knox, which ... most people call the property owner’s map,” he said. “It shows the county and pinpoints people’s names on it that own property.” This kind of map is particularly useful for those interested in genealogical research, he said. Reeves’ interest in maps, in fact, grew out of his interest in genealogy. He worked as a physicist for 20 years at the Y-12 plant in Oak

Lady Ads rally past BHS, win 4-AAA ■


With lights-out shooting and crisp offensive execution producing 43 first-half points, Bearden’s Lady Bulldogs were well on their way to a District 4-AAA tourney title against rival Farragut. Then came stifling, ball-denial defense from Miranda Burt, a huge third quarter spark from Rebecca Jameson and clutch late game plays from Sue Yun-Kim and Madyson Newby. Throw in a steady overall effort from Madison Maples, including a pair of championship-clinching free throws in the final seconds, plus notable contributions off the bench from Anna Woodford, Maegan Hudson and Kristen Freeman, and the Lady Admirals successfully rallied from a 14point halftime deficit.

Led by Jameson, senior post and tourney Most Valuable Player with 10 of her team-high 16 points coming in the third quarter, Farragut (25-2, No. 8-ranked in state) held No. 3 seed BHS (247) without a point for more than nine minutes and without a field goal for more than 11 minutes. The result was a thrilling 60-59 victory in the 4-AAA title game, the program’s second straight, in FHS’s loud Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium Monday, Feb. 17. Beating Bearden for a third straight time this season, “We knew we just had to focus on defense because our offense, it would come along if we picked it up defensively,” Jameson said. “She kind of, at halftime, asked for the ball,” FHS’s Jason Mayfield, district co-Coach of the Year, said of Jameson. “We’ve got to get it inside because she’s so

Farragut Lady Admirals players and coaches, led by head coach Jason Mayfield (second from right), enjoy the moment after an exciting 60-59 come-from-behind win versus rival Bearden. It was the program’s second straight District 4-AAA tourney title, this one earned at FHS Monday, Feb. 17.

much of a mismatch offensively.” Holding FHS scoreless the first 4:45 of the game while zooming ahead 12-0, Bearden was led by senior point Lexus Norwood. The All-District tourney honoree’s hot first-quarter shooting produced 10 of her 16 points. “We hit a lot of shots in the first half. A lot of things went our way,” Lady Bulldogs head coach Justin Underwood said. Farragut, also 4-AAA league champ, will host every Region 2AAA it plays starting at 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 21, versus District 3AAA’s No. 4 seed (Halls or Campbell County). BHS will host 3-AAA’s No. 3 at 7 p.m., Friday. A 17-0 run turned a 48-36 Bearden lead with 5:21 left in the third period into a 53-48 FHS lead with under four minutes to play. Burt, a sophomore wing named All-District tourney, held Lady Bulldogs sharp-shooting senior wing Erin Walsh scoreless in the second half after the All-District tourney honoree scored nine in the first half. “That’s her job, is to

frustrate the other [team’s] best player, and she did a great job,” Mayfield said about Burt. “… Anna Woodford also did a good job on [Walsh]. … And we played better help defense, too.” With Mayfield saying Burt was motivated by Walsh “hitting a couple of threes” against her in last year’s region title game loss to BearLady Admirals 60 den, Burt Lady Bulldogs 59 said, “I didn’t want her to touch the ball, that was the main thing.” Underwood said FHS “came out with a purpose in the second half. … We just got a little tentative.” A 6-1 Lady Bulldogs run was capped when junior forward Chanler Geer (10 points) nailed a three-pointer, tying the game at 54-54 with 2:12 remaining. The teams exchanged turnovers before Yun-Kim, junior point guard, made two big plays. Missing the front end of a oneand-one at the 1:17 mark, YunKim rebounded her own miss,

then nailed a three-point basket with 42 seconds to play. “After that missed free throw I needed to make up for it somehow,” Yun-Kim, scoring 10, said. After FHS forced another turnover, Yun-Kim hit a free throw with 34.4 seconds left. Madison Rice, Bearden AllDistrict tourney forward who scored 14, hit a 15-footer that cut it to 58-56 with 23.2 remaining. Jameson then missed both of her free throws before Newby, an All-District senior post, grabbed a huge offensive rebound. “We just knew that we had to turn it up,” Newby, who scored nine, said. Maples, a senior wing and regular season All-4-AAA honoree who scored 10, pretty much iced the issue by hitting two free throws with 13.8 seconds left. If Farragut stays alive, it will host region semifinals at 6 and 7:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 24, then the region title game at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26. Bearden would host the title game if it survives and both No. 1 seeds lose.

Trying to break more new championship ground in its program, Hardin Valley Academy boys basketball took perennial District 4-AAA power Maryville two overtimes in an exciting tournament title game. Blaine Shockley, Hardin Valley All-District junior wing, missed a probably game-winning 3-point jumper in the final few seconds of a 47-47 regulation tie. Daniel Linebaugh, HVA All-District forward, missed a 10-foot rebound attempt just before the buzzer. The Rebels (23-7) ended up hitting 15-of-18 overtime free throws, with tourney Most Valuable Player John Garrett (game-high 25 points) going eight-for-eight in the second overtime. A couple of key Hawks misses late added up to a 66-60 Maryville

two-overtime win in Farragut’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium Tuesday night, Feb. 18. “I thought both teams played well enough to win,” HVA head coach Keith Galloway said. “I felt we played tough enough to win, it just didn't bounce our way.” Austin Glasgow, Rebels 66 Hawks Hawks 60 senior point, was one of three HVA players named All-District (14 points). Zak Carter, senior post and regular season 4-AAA MVP, led Hardin Valley with 22 points. “Our team fought the whole game,” Glasgow said. “Some plays just didn't fall for us at the end.” A controversial ending to the first overtime, with the Hawks rallying from a five down, went HVA’s way, as an apparent foul call on Hardin Valley (19-10) was ruled to have happened after the buzzer sounded. It was tied 52-

all. The Rebels responded when down early 7-2, using a late firsthalf rush to go up 28-23 at halftime. Maryville, however, went more than six minutes without a field goal in the third quarter as the game tightened. Neither team led by more than two points in the fourth quarter. Carter converted a rebound basket to give the Hawks a 43-41 lead with 4:54 to go. Garrett's 10-foot runner with 3:41 left put Maryville back up 4543. Glasgow'’s driving lay-up tied it at the 3:03 mark. A Dyonta Bizzle-Brown block set the stage for the game’s final 2:20, tied at 45. The Hawks suddenly slowed it down until Linebaugh's threepoint jumper missed and BizzleBrown picked up his fourth foul See HAWKS on Page 14


Bearden's mastery against rival Farragut, extending into postseason play, included picking up a second win this season in FHS's Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium. Jumping ahead by five points five minutes into the game, the Bulldogs (21-10) never trailed, pushing a 22-13 halftime edge to as many as 14 points in a 4434 District 4-AAA consolation game victory Tuesday evening, Feb. 18. With its third win overall this season against the Admirals (11-17), Bearden advances into first round Region 2-AAA at 7 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 22, on the road against District 3-AAA's

runner-up (either Oak Ridge or Halls), the Admirals will face the 3-AAA tourney champ on the road at 7 p.m. Region semifinals are at 6 and 7:30 p . m . , Tu e s d a y, Feb. 25, at the site of Graham 4 - A A A tourney champ Maryville.

game,” said Jack Graham, Bearden senior wing named to the All-District regular season team, who led the Bulldogs with 15 points. “They hit a couple of big shots, but we were able to respond each time.” Chris Cool, FHS head coach, said his guards “went in a 180degree direction” opposite the Admirals’ game-plan, adding that too many of his players “watched

Williams ended with a team high 10 points. Bearden junior wing Austin Duncan, yet another All-District selection (eight points), answered with a 7-foot spinning

Park scored seven. Two Sam Phillips baskets, the last with 1:04 to play, sealed the deal at 44-30. Phillips, a junior post, ended with eight points. Five second quarter points from Matt Eggert, Farragut junior forward, was the Admirals’ firsthalf highlight.

A Shockley three and a Tyler Thompson block got the Hawks back into the game. Carter's 15foot tied it 52-all with 1:05 left in first OT. Garrett's four free throws put MHS ahead 56-54 at the 2:52 mark of the second OT. Carter

answered with two free throws in-between. Thompson's offensive rebound resulted in two made free throws with 2:30 left, tying it 56-56. Blackmon sank one free throw at the 2:11 mark, then Carter answered inside to give the Hawks a 58-57 lead a few seconds later. Garrett answered with two more free throws with 1:31 showing, as Maryville retook a 59-58 lead and would not be headed.
