Clarksville High Wildcats Donny Everett signs with defending NCAA Baseball National Champions Vanderbilt University
Clarksville, TN – Clarksville High School’s hard-throwing, right-handed pitcher Donny Everett cast his lot with the defending NCAA Baseball National Champions Vanderbilt University, by signing a Letter of Intent on November 12th, in a ceremony held in the school’s cafeteria.
The Commodores had shown interest is Everett since he was 15-year old; something that is more prevalent in football and basketball and at the time was almost unheard of in college baseball.
“I went to a showcase the summer of my freshman year and the Vanderbilt coaches saw me and we just sort of started talking form there,” Everett said. “I just loved everything they had to offer with a great education, plus they really wanted me, so it was a great fit.
Clarksville, TN – Clarksville High School all-state catcher had hoped and dreamed about to go to school and playing in the Orange and White at the University of Tennessee since she was little.
Well dreams do come true, as the left-hander, power hitting, backstop officially signed her NCAA National Letter of Intent to play for the Lady Vols on November 12th, in a ceremony held in the school’s cafeteria.
“I’m excited because I’ve worked very hard and it’s paid off finally,” Bearden said. “It truly is a dream come true for me getting a chance to play for the University of Tennessee.”
Clarksville, TN – It was just too much speed and athleticism on the part of the Kenwood High School Knights basketball team, November 11th in their TSSAA Hall of Fame Game, as they dominated the Community High School Vikings in a 70-37 win to open the regular season.
The Knights utilized their speed and athleticism on both ends of the court against the Vikings, as they harassed the Community ball handlers into turnovers, dominated the glass rebounding and beat their opponents up and down the floor all night long.
It would take almost two minutes before either team would make a shot from the floor, with Community’s Tyler Broles knocking down a three-point field goal to get things going – and giving the Vikings their only lead of the night, 3-2.
