Tracy Chastain Sportscast Editor
I am dedicated to bringing you the best and the brightest of our namesake that
are involved in the world of sports and sports reporting.
There have been many Chastains that have influenced the sports stage and many more still are
in the collegiate and high school levels waiting to make their impact on the world of sports.
Keep current with these and other Chastain stats and rankings at:
Brandi's Long Held Record in Jeopardy
Brandi Chastain has been the owner
of the NCAA women's soccer record for the most consecutive games
with a goal. The University of Portland Pilots' Christine Sinclair
is just one goal shy of matching the 15 year old record. The fact
that she has held that record for so long is a testament in itself,
to such an acheivement.
But, what is more a testament to the character of our beloved cousin
is the grace and dignity in which she has held the record, and the
inspiration she has been in promoting the sport and encouraging others
to reach for the standards she has set. Regardless of the outcome, there
is no chance of her losing the respect and admiration of her fans and peers.
Troy and the Boys are Teed Off and Loving Every Minute of It
Troy Chasteen, golfer for South Lake High of Groveland, FL, was on a winless
team last year. It seemed that playing golf was all about having a good time
and the laughs they had on the fairway. But after the last match of the
season, they wondered what would happen if they were to try to win. With
some changes in attitude and the addition of some talented freshman, Troy
and his teammates, set out to experience a whole new type of season; A winning
Troy stated "I had a great time last season and we had a lot of laughs, but
now we are winning and that's also fun." And it's no wonder that with this
new attitude and determination, Troy stands at number 1 on a team where everyone
seems to have improved and he is now looking forward to state competition.
Chasteen, who has only been playing competitive golf for three years, is down
to a five handicap. He's hitting them farther and straighter than last year
and says he is having more fun now that the smiles and fun are coming with
Sportscast Editor Looking for Future Fantasy Football Managers
I am looking for other Chastains (all spellings) that might be interested in
an All Chastain Fantasy Football League. It is unlikely that we could find
enough managers to start until next year, but if I had enough interest, we
might be able to run a playoff league to test the waters.

Bailee Chastain Assists, Kills and Digs Her Way to a Perfect Season in District
Bailee Chastain ended her regular season this year with a team that went
undefeated in divisional play. Her team, the Red Bank Lady Lions, are
ranked forth in the coaches poll after having been ranked eighth last year.
She is personally ranked 5th in assists in her district with 4.9 assists per
game as well as her being ranked 12th in kills with 2.53 kills per game,
but her leadership on the team is measured in strength and heart beyond
what her big numbers might have contibuted.
Chastain and her teammates experienced a number of setbacks this year,
including the tragic loss of former teammate, Natalie Sitton, to an
automobile accident. They managed to stay focussed, and dedicated
not only their remaining games, but their entire season to the memory of
their lost friend.
Coach Susan Thurman says Bailee could be the best setter in Chattanooga this year
as well as being an oustanding hitter. She goes on to say that if this
team continues to improve, they could be the best team she has ever coached.
That's not a shallow comment considering coach Thurman has been at Red Bank for 35
years and is the only Volleyball coach they have ever had. Bailee and her teammates
pushed their coach over the 700 win mark earlier this year and continue to grow
In the Division 6AAA semi-finals earlier today, Red Bank quickly dispatched the
forth-seeded central team behind solid performances by Bailee and Emily Lawson.
Coach Thurman said of their play "They were both outstanding in every category.
They have been our leaders all year and continued to do so today." Red Bank will
meet the third-seeded Soddy-Daisy Lady Trojans in the finals on Wednesday.
Good luck Bailee. We are all pulling for you to Dig, Assist and Kill your way to that
