Maxwell ties for 1st in Ironwood Classic tourney

The Ironwood Classic teed off Friday, Sept. 14 at Ironwood Golf Club in Cookeville.

The field was made up of 55 PGA professionals and amateurs from across the state, all to support Bobby Nichols , head professional at Ironwood Golf Club. The field was broken down into 4 divisions – Regular Professional, Regular Amateur, Senior Professional, and Senior Amateur.

On the amateur side, Paul Ballard and Gary Maxwell tied for first place in the Regular Amateur Division, shooting a 69 (-3 under par). Gary Maxwell Insurance has been the main tournament sponsor for the past few years. He also played under Bobby Nichols on the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles golf team.

In the Senior Amateur Division Doug Harris from Franklin shot a 67 (-5 under par) to beat three players tied at 71 (-1 under par). This was Harris’ second win this year in a Tennessee PGA event, with a win at the Callaway
Open held at Oak Ridge Country Club.

In the Regular Professional Division, Scott Masters from Knoxville shot an impressive 66 (-6 under par) tournament low to edge out Glen Hudson of La Follette by 2 strokes. Masters felt right at home because he competed on the Tennessee Tech Golf Team coached by Bobby Nichols some 12 years ago.

In the Senior Professional Division, Bill Franklin from Sparta shot a 68 (-4 under par) to beat Mark Houser of Kingsport by 2 strokes. This was Franklin’s first win of the year in a Tennessee PGA event.

The Jr. Cats rushed for a -21 yards and passed for 19 yards, thus netting a total of -2 yards for total offensive yardage. The longest pass play for the game came on the first play of the third quarter for 11 yards, creating the only first down for the Jr. Wildcats.

The Jr. Wildcats defense had some highlights – causing the Owls to have three turnovers for the game, but was unsuccessful in capitalizing on them. Livingston intercepted two passes from the Owls and recovered a fumble.

The Jr. Wildcats came close to scoring late in the fourth quarter as they returned a punt 65 yards to the Owls 20 yard line, but were unable to push it across the goal line for the TD.

The Owls offense produced 127 yards on the ground rushing and threw the ball for 53 yards, with a total offensive yardage of 180. The final score was 20-0.

The Jr. Cats got off to a good start, returning the opening kickoff 60 yards down to the DeKalb 30 yard line. After a couple of first downs, the offense drove down to the DeKalb 3 yard line, but failed to cross the goal line and came away without any points.

DeKalb sustained a 45-yard drive, but were stopped by the defense of the Jr. Wildcats, forcing the Tigers to punt. This ended the first quarter of play with the score tied 0-0.

The Jr. Wildcats took over on their own 40 yard line. They received a holding penalty which pushed them back, forcing a punt situation.

The Tigers took over on their own 44 yard line, losing 5 yards on the next three plays.

On the next offensive series, the Jr. Wildcats came up short in yardage with fourth and 14 on the DeKalb 49 yard line. Livingston went for it, but a quarterback sack resulted in a 5-yard loss, turning the ball once again over to the Tigers.

DeKalb County ran a pass play, which was intercepted, allowing the Jr. Wildcats to take over at their own 30 yard line.

Livingston ended the half with a 50-yard pass play with the score remaining 0-0.

DeKalb received the kickoff to begin the third quarter, and on the third play from scrimmage, they fumbled and Livingston recovered on DeKalb’s 21 yard line. Six plays later, the Jr. Wildcats went into the endzone for the first
score of the game. The 2-point conversion failed, and the score was 6-0.

The Tigers failed to score on the next offensive series, turning the ball back over to the Jr. Wildcats on DeKalb’s 21 yard line.

Livingston ran a touchdown that was called back for blocking in the back; however two plays later, the Jr. Wildcats got their second touchdown, but the 2-point conversion was no good.

At the end of the third quarter, the score was 12-0 with the Jr. Wildcats in the lead.

The fourth quarter gave yet another touchdown score for the Jr. Wildcats, while the defense recovered another fumble and got another pass interception. The defense finished strong, holding the Tigers without a first down the entire fourth quarter.

The Jr. Cats’ first victory this season was won by defeating DeKalb County’s Tigers 18-0.

Lady Wildcats win 3 on the week



Kathy Carr/OCN Sports
Lady Wildcat Kendria Kilgore, #54, makes the kill shot from the middle as Chelsea Carr, #40, sets the ball in a 3-0 victory against Crossville High School.

By KATHY CARR,
OCN Sports

The Lady Wildcats are picking up a little steam as they head deep into their schedule, defeating Cumberland County High School on Monday, Sept. 10 at Livingston Academy.

The Lady Wildcats won the match 3-0 with the first game score being 25-13, game two 25-9 and game three 25-12.

The serves for LA have been much improved since the beginning of the season, and are continuing to gain consistency.

The LA volleyball team also got a little revenge this week as they defeated Smith County 2-0. The Lady Owls of Smith County had beaten LA earlier in a district match at Upperman, causing the two teams to split in the regular season. The much improved Lady Wildcats came out victorious beating the Lady Owls in two straight games.

The Lady Bees of Upperman are very young this season as they only have one senior with game experience. They are very much improved; however, the LA Lady Wildcats defeated the Bees in two straight games as well.

The Lady Wildcats seem to be improving in their overall game with each match. Passing the ball seems to still give them some trouble from time to time; however, it seems to get better with each game.

The middle hitting is becoming an offensive weapon for LA and covering the slips is much more familiar. The girls have just gotten stronger and stronger as the season progresses with more confidence in their hitting the ball from the strong outside position as well as weak side.

Their rhythm and timing are beginning to gel as they become more comfortable with their teammates. They remain in the middle of the pack in district play, but still have several district matches yet to complete.

The Lady Wildcats have a few days back in the gym as they prepare to travel to Jackson County in a matchup between the Lady Blue Devils and the Lady Lions of Cannon County at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20.
