Tournament entry fee is $70 and includes one round of golf at Persimmon Hills Golf Course, cart fees and dinner with head coach Jerry Carpenter and members of the Skyhawk golf team.

All proceeds from the annual fund-raising tournament will benefit the UT Martin golf program and help defer travel and equipment expenses throughout the season.
coaching SF soccer
South Fulton didn’t have to look far for a new girls’ soccer coach.
Crossing the county line, the Red Devilette program has tapped former Westview softball and soccer standout Emily Belote to take over.
The season begins Monday with a home match against Gibson County, action slated to begin at 6 p.m.
In addition to softball and soccer, Belote was a member of the Lady Chargers’ basketball team through her junior season.
She earned a softball scholarship to UT Martin but suffered an ACL tear in one of her first workouts with the Skyhawks and chose to give up athletics to concentrate on school.
Belote was a four-time all-district and all-region soccer player as well as a three-time all-district, all-region and all-academic softball player at Westview.
A certified fitness instructor, Belote has a degree in Health and Human Performance from UTM and is working on her masters in Occupational Therapy.
She is coaching at SF on a paraprofessional basis, replacing Mixon Moore.
Belote is the daughter of David Belote, assistant vice chancellor of student affiars at UT Martin, and Dawne Belote,a speech language pathologist.
The school system is still in the process of searching for a new boys’ soccer coach.
Belote’s first game as the Red Devilette skipper was a success as South Fulton handled South Gibson, 8-0.
The Lady Devils scored six goals in the first half.
