Shouse Wins State Pentathlon

Most people are still in basketball mode and not thinking of track yet. Carson Newman signee Christian Shouse, on the other hand, is already burning it up in the indoor track season. In fact he recently won a state title at the Music City High School Indoor Invitational hosted by Nashville’s Vanderbilt University. The pentathlon is five events that an athlete earns a combined score in. The events are high jump, long jump, 60 meter hurdles, 1,000 meter run and the shot put.

Shouse outperformed thirteen other athletes to earn a victory with a total of 3451 points. He won the long jump outright with a jump of 21’4.5″. Most impressively he not only won the high jump but set the meet record with a jump of 6’7″. He also took second in the shot put.

Cougar Drake Pyles also competed at the meet and finished 5th in shot put with a throw of 34’4″

Campbell County Dixie Youth Baseball/Softball Holding Sign Ups

Lady Cougar Starting Five Named All District

The honors are already rolling in for a team that has not even closed out the regular season. The All District team was named this week and the Lady Cougars are well represented. In fact in a move that is rare of not unprecedented all five starters were named to the All District team. This is a team that boasts three thousand plus point scorers.

Senior Skylar Boshears is the team’s leading scorer and one of the school’s all time leading scorers in basketball. She is signed with the Lady Paladins of Furman and a TSSAA Miss Basketball nominee.

Senior Haley Comer hit the 1,000 point scoring mark earlier in the season and though she has not committed to a team to play on the next level her recruitment is open.

Junior Madison Brady hit the 1,000 point mark this week. She is on pace to potentially finish her career with 1,500 points and 1,000 rebounds a rare statistical double-double.

Junior Emily Ellison is a defensive machine that is also a sniper from beyond the three point arc.

Senior Blair Medley was an honorable mention to the All District team. She is a versatile player and is often the one directing the offense and churning out the assists.

Brady Hits 1,000 Points In District Finale

Brady

Thursday night was the final district game for the Lady Cougars as they traveled to Clinton and battled the Lady Dragons in the Don Lockard Gymnasium. They had apparently shaken off whatever ailed them in their loss to Oak Ridge as they were back in a dominating fashion.

For Madison Brady it was a milestone night. The junior, who is a verbal commit to Xavier University, put in her 1,000th point. In fact at half time she was sitting at 999 and then in the game’s third frame Brady put in the shot that pushed her in to quadruple digits.

Brady is the third Lady Cougar this year to hit a scoring milestone this season. Haley Comer joined the 1,000 point club a few short games ago and Skylar Boshears joined the 1,500 point club earlier in the season. It is not out of the question that Brady could finish her Lady Cougar career with 1,500 points and 1,000 rebounds.

The Lady Cougars won the game and a share of the district title by a score of 68-49. They will close out the regular season at home against one of the only teams to defeat them this season, Morristown West.
