Lucas Armstrong has been named Head Golf Coach at Volunteer High

CHURCH HILL —  Lucas Armstrong is 2010 graduate of Volunteer High School, played on the Falcon golf team each of his four years and was named Big 8 Conference Player of the Year in 2009-2010.

The Falcon coach competed collegiately at Walters State Community College and East Tennessee State University before transferring to Middle Tennessee State University.  At MTSU, Coach Armstrong lettered 3 years and was a two-time Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scholar All-American.  He graduated MTSU in 2014 with a degree in Communications and recently purchased Silver Lake Golf Course in Church Hill.  The course recently re-opened under the name of Bays Mountain Golf Club.

 

“When Gene Renfro took at job at Unicoi County it took me about 30 seconds to decide Lucas Armstrong would be a great coach and a perfect for Volunteer High School.   I’ve known Lucas since he was a young junior golfer.  As a former Falcon, Lucas is someone who played college golf at the highest level and is invested in the Church Hill community.  I look for him to instill our golfers with integrity, handwork and enthusiasm while improving their skills.  I think this is an awesome opportunity for our students and youth programs to get outstanding instruction from a really knowledgeable golfer.  More than that, Lucas is a really good person.”-    Jim Whalen Volunteer High Athletic Director
