Four Vikings make decisions
Four Tennessee High seniors have made decisions on their future college homes.
Standout golfer Jack Tickle has signed with East Tennessee State, a key addition to the Buccaneers, according to ETSU golf coach Jake Amos.
“Jack was a massive addition to the ETSU men’s golf team for many reasons. When I got the job here, one of my main priorities was to recruit in the state of Tennessee and to get the best in-state talent at ETSU,” said Amos, in a press release. “In Jack we have done that. He has consistently shown that he is not only one of the best in the state but also in the country in his class.
“From my first day on the job I had targeted him as my main priority in this class and I am delighted we got him. Since he verbally committed, he has gotten better every year and is on track to be an important member of our team next year.”
The Tennessee High twin duo of Noelia Adkins and Isabella Adkins have chosen to continue their golf careers at the University of Tampa. CJ Henley also committed to play baseball at Belmont-Abbey.
Those are in addition to THS standout Jaden Keller, who recently announced his intention to continue his football career at Virginia Tech.
A signing ceremony will be held at a later date.

East Tennessee State men’s basketball coach Jason Shay said on Thursday that a waiver request made for Kansas State transfer David Sloan has been denied by the NCAA.
The 6-foot-2 guard was listed as a senior on the ETSU roster. Shay said no explanation for the decision had been received.
