Cleveland State's Golf program has added two new golfers to its roster in Jared Thomas and Colby Cagle.

Thomas, an alumnus of Hixson High School, has decided to join the Cougars to play golf. Thomas was the first week best of prep award recipient in the Chattanooga area. On why Thomas wanted to golf here at Cleveland State he responded, "When I heard about the new golf program here at Cleveland State, I knew I needed to try to go for it.

" Thomas continued, "I've been playing golf since I was little and I started to realized I could do something with it once I started to win a couple of tournaments at the high school level. Cleveland State is now giving me the chance to compete at the next level and I'm very grateful for that."

Colby Cagle has also chosen to sign with Cleveland State for golf. Cagle played at Greenback High School and made an appearance in the State tournament after winning the District Championship. Cagle commented, "I love the small college atmosphere and I love the fact that my family can come watch me play, plus the coaching staff here is phenomenal; these were big reasons on why I wanted to play here at Cleveland State. Colby has also been playing golf for as long as he can remember, pointing to the time when his mother started up the golf program for Greenback Middle School as a big reason as to where his passion for golf comes from. "I'm proud to be accepted at Cleveland State and I'll try my best to work hard and help push this program to new heights," said Colby.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all. Oh, there isn’t anything real sexy about Villanova beating Georgetown or a baseball player hitting for the cycle. Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
