SEVIERVILLE — In 2018, the state of Tennessee got a small taste of what then-freshman Evan Woosley-Reed could do on a major stage of golf for high school athletes.
At Willowbrook Golf Club, he posted a cool 142, two-day score and finished second in the Small Class tournament.
He followed with back-to-back state titles at Willowbrook as a a sophomore and junior, and to be frank, not much has changed atop the leaderboard in the past three seasons.
Woosley-Reed completed his historic career on Friday at Sevierville Golf Club, the site of the 2021 state championship and recorded his third-straight state title to end his career at Cascade.
In perhaps his toughest fight of his high school career, Woosley-Reed out-dueled North Greene’s Aidan Collier to win by one stroke to record his state title.
Through the first day of competition, Woosley-Reed posted a 66, two strokes up on Collier, but saw the North Greene standout shoot a 65, one stroke up on Woosley-Reed, on the second day of the tournament.
Even with Collier’s 65 on Day 2, Woosley-Reed was able to keep his composure and make back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15 on Day 2 before closing out with a birdie on the Par 5 Hole 18 to secure his third-straight title.
Woosley-Reed wasn’t the only Cascade golfer to make an appearance in the state championship.
Tatyana Greene also qualified as an individual and her performance was nothing short of special during her first trip to the big dance.
Greene shot a combined, two-day score of 167 to finish tied for ninth. Joining Greene in the three-way tie for third was Cornersville’s Annabelle Mulliniks and Kingston’s Kailey Lane.
Greene turned in an 84 on her first day of competition, but rallied with a strong finish by shooting three-straight pars before closing with a birdie on 18.
Gordonsville’s Sophie Linder won the girls tournament with a two-day score of 132.
