After taking a look at professional athletes and personnel in parts 1 and 2, it’s now time to turn the attention to the collegiate level.

The COVID-19 virus shut down the TSSAA state basketball tournaments, spring sports and Spring Fling, but it won't have the same effect on Murphy Fair's Tennessee High School Football magazine.

Will Secker was the main event for Creek Wood in their only contest of the week as they defeated Greenbrier 11-5. Secker pitched the first five innings allowing only two unearned runs, which is a feat itself against a very strong Bobcat offense. Secker also picked up 14 strikeouts while Houston Kilpatrick finished off Greenbrier striking out one over the final two innings.

NASHVILLE – Creek Wood got off to a slow start in the postseason with an early semifinal loss, but rebounded in regionals to defeat Nolensville in overtime and then rival Fairview in the regional semifinal to give itself a sub-state appearance. After losing to Community in the regional final Creek Wood was matched up with Pearl-Cohn, and with the loss in the regional final as well, Creek Wood had to travel.

DICKSON – Dickson hosted Creek Wood to kick off the start of soccer season for both clubs as both teams started strong out of the gate. Both Dickson and Creek Wood had quite a few possessions and a few shots on goal but Matthew Faulks got the scoring started 11 minutes in and it was all Dickson from there.

CHARLOTTE – Last season the Lady Red Hawk softball team made it all the way to the state tournament and finished third. Not many teams play on the final day but Creek Wood isn’t happy with just going to a state tournament. For the past few seasons they have been “ring chasing” and that will probably be the slogan again this season as they return Lennon Spicer and Jase Jackson two of the main cogs in what’s known as a very strong Creek Wood softball program.

DICKSON – Last season the Lady Cougars softball team finished with a 23-19-2 record and advanced all the way to the state tournament thanks, in no small part, to Ashlan Sensing. Sensing pitched Dickson County through the district and regional tournament to give the Lady Cougars a state tournament appearance.

DICKSON – The Cougars soccer team begins regular season play against Creek Wood on Tuesday, March 10 as Dickson looks to build on last season’s success and go further. Last season the Cougars advanced all the way to the Region 6-AAA semifinal where they ran into Brentwood who advanced all the way to the state semifinals before losing to eventual state champion Bearden.

UNIONVILLE – Creek Wood’s Lady Red Hawk basketball team lost to Marshall County Monday night by a score of 53-42 in the Region 6-AA semifinals, bringing its season to an end. Brianna Burgess led Creek Wood with 19 points and senior Emily Michael added 14 but it wasn’t enough to beat a very strong Marshall County squad.

Dickson County senior Meghan Hodi signed her letter of intent to play soccer at Freed-Hardeman last week. Hodi, who was one of nine seniors on last year’s Lady Cougars soccer team, was surrounded by friends, family and coaches at her ceremony.
