Sweet earns All-State

Greenback School’s Lorien Sweet was named to the Tennessee Sports Writers Association Class A All-State Team. The junior became the first Greenback golfer, male or female, to earn such recognition following a fifth-place finish at the TSSAA Class A state tournament in October. ‘It means a lot to be able to accomplish this because I’ve always wanted to make a big impact in Greenback sports, and I think this has allowed me to do that,’ Sweet said. ‘I feel like I usually doubt myself when it comes to how good I am and this has definitely made me feel more confident. I think knowing that it’s never been accomplished before made me work even harder to be able to reach that. I’m really proud that I was able to make it before my senior year and I’m hoping to make it next year as well. I also want to thank my family and all my coaches for helping me get this far because I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.’
