Former MJHS all-stater
Mt. Juliet High's former two-time all-state baseball player Kyle Smith signed as an undrafted free agent with the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier this week.
Called by Golden Bear head coach Mark Purvis, "the best power hitter I ever coached," Smith spent the past four seasons at Vanderbilt battling injury.
"As a pitcher, he threw 88-92 mph for us," Purvis said.
Bears end season May 16
MT. JULIET -- With the game on the line, Bradley Wilson pitched backwards and as a result, his Rossview team is moving on to the finals of the Region 5-AAA tournament following a May 16 rain-soaked 3-0 win over Mt. Juliet.
After working the early innings with a solid fastball, the sturdy right-hander befuddled Golden Bear hitters in the late going by alternating a slow curve and deadly change early in the count.
A special graduation ceremony was held early Monday afternoon, May 16 at the Mt. Juliet High baseball field for Golden Bear seniors who will miss their commencement exercises in order to play in the 7 p.m. Region 5-AAA tournament opener against Rossview.
"Coach (Mark) Purvis left it up to the seniors as to whether he should try to get the game moved up," said MJHS athletic director Mike Duncan. "There are 10 seniors and a manager."
