In a tune-up for the tournament season, the Campbell County High School boy’s golf team tied for third place out of nine teams in the District 3-AAA Shoot-out at Beaver Brook.

Knox Halls posted the best score with 144. Knoxville Central finished second with 149, while Campbell County, Anderson County and Oak Ridge each shot 154.

Senior Matthew Chambers led the Cougars with a score of 37, followed by Bryce Roach and Logan Baird 38 each; Spenser St. John and Corey Bray 41 each.

“We have been steady throughout the season,” said Campbell County coach Joey St. John.

“Matthew Chambers recently got to visit Appalachian State. Corey Bray, Bryce Roach and Spenser St. John fill out the top four, with an ongoing competition who will fill the fifth slot for the post-season tournaments.”

The district tournament will begin Monday Sept. 14 at Millstone in Morristown.  

Campbell County’s girls placed fifth at the District 3-AAA Shoot-out. Tiffany Roach led the Lady Cougars with a score of 49, Cheyenne Baker 50 and Lauren Heatherly 51.

Our girl’s team is lead by Cheyenne Baker and Tiffany Roach. They have been improving all season – hopefully will make enough progress to reach the region tournament,” said Coach St. John.

“Golf is a tournament sport, and we will spend next couple weeks preparing for that.”

Last Thursday, the CCHS boys defeated Oak Ridge and Central at Three Ridges.

The Cougars posted a team score of 155, while Oak Ridge shot 162 and Knoxville Central 165.

Bray led the field with an even-par 36, followed by Roach with 37, Chambers 41 and Spenser St. John 41
