Brainerd High School To Add Golf, Tennis

Thursday, May 2, 2013 - by B.B. Branton

Brainerd High School athletics director Levar Brown has announced that the school will add boys and girls varsity tennis and boys and girls varsity golf for the 2013-2014 school year.

“We have received a good deal of interest from our students who want to participate in tennis and golf and we look forward to having these varsity sports in place for next school year,” said Brown.

Home venues will be Brainerd Tennis Courts which are adjacent to the school and Brainerd Golf Course.

“We are very appreciative that the management at Brainerd Golf Course has agreed that we can use their facility as our home course as it is only a few blocks from the school,” Brown stated.

The First Tee of Chattanooga has also expressed an interest in assisting the golf teams.

High school golf is played in the fall, while tennis is played in the spring.

“We are advertising our coaching positions for golf and tennis and plan to have coaches in place in a few weeks,” Brown said.

Something Beautiful Happened Monday Night - Not The Debate

Monday, Sept. 26, our first presidential debate happened; no minds were changed.  Yet something beautiful and important happened.  The Atlanta Falcons, my team, played the New Orleans Saints.  Instead of some irrelevant, broad based, screw America protest, the opposing teams locked arms in unity. I was impressed. I have been a Falcon Fan since 1971 when WMOC AM ... (click for more)
