ELIZABETHTON — Sullivan South scored a clean sweep at the Region 1-A/AA golf championships on Monday at Elizabethton Golf Course.
Cayman Ratliff scored his second straight boys region title, leading the Rebels to a 290-320 team win over runner- up Cumberland Gap.
Taylor White of South took the girls’ individual title, winning a three-way playoff over teammate Allyson Dunn and Kristen Ankrom of Grainger. As a team, the Lady Rebels won 144-154 over Ankrom’s Lady Grizzlies.
Both South squads are now headed for next week’s state tournament in Manchester.
“I’m real pleased we found a way to get down there,” South coach Anthony Richardson said. “We’ve got to go (to state) the last couple of years with the girls, and it’s always more fun going with a team than as individuals. I think we have a chance to win this thing.”
