The SCHS Owls Soccer 2024 Smoky Mountain Cup Champions

After an opening game against Livingston Academy that ended in a 2-2 draw, the Smith County Owls high school soccer team traveled to Gatlinburg. The annual Smoky Mountain Tournament is a high level match up of schools from many states. Each year college scouts come to watch the action across seven fields. The Owls started their weekend on Friday night matching up against Concord Christian. The Owls won 2-1. On Saturday the opponent was East Robertson. The Owls won 4-1. On Sunday the Owls faced Munford High School and won 4-2. The Smith County Owls won their division which also included Macon County and Seymour High School. Our boys brought home the trophy just months after the Lady Owls brought home their own trophy from the same tournament’s fall edition.

Thursday March 21 the Owls traveled to #6 Friendship Christian.  Senior Blake Baird started off the scoring with an assist to Terence Davis.  That would be the last time the Owls saw the back of the net.  Friendship scored twice for the win 2-1.  The first loss is always tough but there is a lot to be learned from that game and now the Owls can move forward and focus on District play.

Spring break will be quiet but on April 2 the Owls will travel to Dekalb County to make up a game that was earlier scheduled.  Then on April 4 we host York for our Home Opener and the beginning of District play.
