Johnson City has been Title Town as of late as Science Hill teams have brought home a bevy of postseason championships.
Science Hill’s baseball team prevailed over Tennessee High 8-2 in the District 1-AAA title game to earn the school’s 10th district baseball title in the past 13 years. Cole Torbett was the winning pitcher in the championship game and was named MVP of the tournament.
On the soccer pitch, an early goal in the District 1-AAA championship match was all the Hilltoppers needed to knock off the top-seeded Indians of Dobyns-Bennett. Hayden Forester scored just over a minute into the match, and Science Hill scored two more goals to salt away a 3-0 victory.
Forester, who was named MVP of the tournament, went on to score another goal to put Science Hill up 2-0 before the half. Another quick score at the start of the second half by Ben Shultz sealed the deal for the Hilltoppers, who avenged a pair of regular-season losses to D-B.
Meanwhile, Science Hill’s boys’ and girls’ tennis teams both scored regional titles by sweeping past Greeneville. Both teams won the team titles with 4-0 victories.
Om Patel, Daniel Haddadin, Arshaam Kordamiri and Jackson Temple were victories in singles play for the Science Hill boys. Leah McBride, Josi Reid, Lexi Bryant and Armita Kordamiri scored wins for Science Hill’s girls.
