Johnson County High School will be well represented at Emory & Henry College on June 19. Adam Worley has been selected to play in the FCAs All-Star Challenge game.
The rosters consist of the top seniors from Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.
Worleys game will take place at 5 pm.
Nick Whitener and Samuel Icenhour will represent the Longhorns in the underclassmens game. Theyll begin play at 1 pm.
Worley hit .362 this year and will play next season for Alice Lloyd College.
Whitener batted a sizzling .444 while Icenhours .320 batting was worthy but his defense is what separated him from several others.
One area coach stated that Icenhour was one of the best centerfielders he had seen all year. I happen to agree with him.
The Tomahawks Co-Player of the Year Cindi Edington is set to also take part in the girls FCA softball challenge on Tuesday. The Emory & Henry signee hit .455 with 15 home runs this year. She will join Elizabethtons Caley Hodge and Danielle Loving who started this year as freshmen. All three played in the Three Rivers Conference.
Holston High Schools Taylor Doss is also a key player for the Wasps.
Lady Longhorns and
First year head coach Thomas Wampler took his Lady Longhorns to their first summer basketball camp over the weekend and came away liking some of the things he saw.
The varsity played eight games while the junior varsity took part in six.
Wampler split the team so the girls could play more games.
I liked our effort defensively, said Wampler. There were some teams down here who were very good offensively and we were able to contain them. We by no means stopped them but I do feel like we slowed them down to where I would have liked us to.
Wampler had 15 of his 17 players attend. Two-year starter Kourtney Tolley was on vacation.
The team won two JV games and one varsity contest while there. Wampler touched on the last varsity game they played.
