ASHLAND CITY – The Cheatham County Central Cubs are coming off an 8-19 season where they went 5-7 in district play and ended their season with a loss to Harpeth in the District 9-AA tournament.

“This team will be an interesting mix of young and old,” Cheatham coach Josh Stuart said. “We have seven seniors and eight freshmen on the team. Several of the freshmen will see varsity time, and it has been interesting seeing them integrate into the team through the summer and into fall workouts and now (preseason) practice. It will be a learning curve for sure, but I believe we will be better for it as the season goes on.”

Last year’s Cub squad had five seniors, most of whom played a large role in Cheatham’s success last season. Johnny Mayberry, Tanner Fletcher, Preston Carter, Charlie Martin and Robbie Morris were those five seniors. Now, Cheatham must look elsewhere for production.

The Cubs still have Tristan Lee and Silas Hunter. Lee was a starter and Hunter provided valuable minutes off the bench when needed. The rest of the starting lineup will be filled with a little inexperience, but the Cubs will work hard to improve throughout the season.

“Brandon Chandler, Will Belew, Andrew Mayberry, Jackson Morris and Tyler Rich will all chip in with different skill sets,” Stuart added. “Each knows their role well and will contribute in many ways. Two freshmen that we have that will play plenty of minutes are Tucker Carter and Maverick Lee. They are starting to understand what we are trying to do, and we are excited about their futures.”

Cheatham County Central will begin its season by hosting Republic on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
