On Monday, January 24th, 2022, University School student-athlete Henry "Hank" Berning signed to continue his academic and athletic career at Mars Hill University.
Hank has been a standout golfer throughout his high school career. A four-year member
of the varsity golf team, Hank has had a direct impact on University High winning
three consecutive TSSAA District Tournament championships and several high finishes
in the Region Tournament as well. Additionally, as an individual, Hank has finished
as medalist in multiple matches while competing for the Bucs. He also has numerous
top-10 finishes on the Sneds Tour. "I am so proud of what Hank as accomplished at
UH," said golf coach Justin Penley. "He has worked tirelessly throughout his time
as a Buccaneer and is a young man of high character as well. While we will definitely
miss him moving forward, I am extremely pleased that he will be able to continue to
advance both his academic and athletics abilities at the next level."
University High golf played well last Thursday, with the UH boys beating Science Hill JV by 19 strokes and the UH girls battling before falling by a single stroke.
