White County Sophomore Jakeb Davis qualified for the Large Class State Meet on Friday with a 6’2″ high jump, matching his personal best.

He finished in a three-way tie for first place, his seventh time this season at the top.

Davis also led the First Bank First Team.

First Bank First Team

John Garrett (Warren County): Garrett had one of his best outings of the season to lead the Pioneers to a two-game sweep of Stone Memorial. He pitched all eight innings of a 6-3 win, throwing only 62 pitches in the process.

Emma Martin (DeKalb County): Martin was a big part of an offensive onslaught in the Tigerettes’ 12-2 win over Livingston Academy. She drove in three runs on two hits at the plate, and scored one of her own in the win.

Jayden Davis (Cookeville): The Cavalier offense was dynamite in their two-game sweep of Rhea County, and Davis was a big reason why. He finished the two games hitting .667 with three RBIs.

Molly Sparks (Monterey): Sparks’ power was on full display when she blasted two home runs in a district tournament win over Clarkrange.

Ethan Spears (Clay County): Clay County’s ace has been lights out all year, and he was just as tough in the Bulldogs’ 5-3 win over Pickett County. He pitched all seven innings with nine strikeouts.

Allie Jennings (Upperman): Jennings had one of her best games at the plate against Cannon County when she had hits in all four of her at-bats, two of which were doubles, and she drove in three runs.

Silas Randolph (Monterey): Randolph blasted a home run to get the scoring started in a 19-1 win over Red Boiling Springs, and he added an RBI double later in the game.

Mel Pride (Upperman): Pride formed a dangerous tandem with Jennings for the Lady Bees, as she added three hits (a home run included) and four RBIs in the team’s win over Cannon.
