Mavs golfers are young and talented

Anderson County High School is in the midst of its 2022 golf season, which began in July.

The Mavericks entered the year with new Head Coach Patrick Leverton and a young roster with four freshmen.

ACHS’s roster also features two seniors, a sophomore, and a junior. The Mavericks have one female golfer in Sydney May, one of the freshmen, who is playing a key role for the team this season.

“We’re young and inexperienced,” Leverton said. “They’re all working hard to get better, and we’re making progress.

“This year, we’re going to have to continue to get better and grow. We have three freshmen who are playing significant roles.”

The freshmen on this year’s squad include May, Gavin Drake, Kaden Chadwell and Peyton Warwick.

Junior Craig Patterson returns from last year’s team, along with senior Nick Sharp. Sophomore Dakota Williams and senior Jackson Cothern are also on the team.

The Mavericks will not play this week, but will return to action Monday when they take on Powell and Campbell County at Centennial in Oak Ridge.

In its last outing, Anderson County defeated the Cougars 3.5-2.5 in a match play event at Deerfield Country Club in LaFollette, Campbell County’s home course.

Sharp, May and Drake all won their individual matches against CCHS, while Chadwell halved his match.
