MANCHESTER, Tenn. (WRCB) -- No Chattanooga-area players finished atop the leaderboard at the TSSAA Class AAA State Golf Championships Wednesday, but a golfer with future local ties took home some hardware.
Farragut senior and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga golf commit Stuart Thomas claimed the AAA individual championship in a three-way playoff. The future Moc shot a two-round total of 4-under 140, then birdied the first playoff hole to beat Siegel's Arjuna Anday and Dickson County's Ben Wolcott.
McMinn County's Cody Housley was the top area finisher, shooting 153 to finish in a tie for 31st. Bradley Central's Chase Montgomery was tied for 42nd at 156.
Ooltewah's Samantha Griffith shot a two-round total of 159 to finish tied for 17th in the girls' championship. Walker Valley's Katie Bishop was one spot behind Griffith at 162.
No area teams qualified for the 36-hole tournament, which was played at Willowbrook Golf Club. Siegel won the boys' team championship, while Clarksville cruised to the girls' title.
The Division II state tournament is scheduled for next week, with the Class A/AA championship to follow.
