Girls optimistic as season ends

The girls’ golf team placed fifth out of five teams at the Class 2A District Golf Tournament at Rockledge Country Club on Thursday. Eighth-grader Courtnee R. had the team’s lowest score of 137 .

Districts were pushed back from Oct. 10 because all school events were canceled due to Hurricane Matthew.

“The hurricane didn’t have much effect on the course, other than a few palm fronds, which didn’t get in our way at all,” freshman Campbell Crews said.

Despite the loss, Courtnee maintained a positive outlook.

“I was really close to going onto regionals,” she said. “If I had just concentrated a little more and saved some more strokes around the green, I think I would’ve moved on. The highest score that went through was a 131 by a girl from Edgewood. She was older than me though, so next year I aim to beat her and advance to regionals.”
