3/27/17 - Both Varsity Teams took on a very strong field this weekend at the Longhorn Invitational held at the Sugar Hill Golf Club in Buford, GA. The slope of this course, 140, is the highest that we will face this year, and the kids will attest to this. Strong performances by the Starr's Mill girls and boys led them to a 2nd and 1st place finish respectively, and the boys had the low medalist for the tournament shooting a 72. Blake Rodgers led the team with an 84 and the boys finished 10th overall. This week we will face Mountain View on Tuesday and Lanier on Thursday, both home matches. Coach Ogburn

The next match for both teams will be Wednesday against Chattahoochee.
3/4/17 - The Varsity Boys and Girls teams each took in an impressive field this weekend in their respective tournaments.

Half-way through the round, the winds picked up from 11 to 20 mph, making the course very difficult. The boys finished T-19 with a team Score of 333, while Lambert's Boys Team won the tournament with a total team score of 301.
2/28/17 - The Varsity and JV Boys teams took on Chattahoochee in our first match of the season. The Varsity team won by two strokes, 169 - 171, with Brock Healy carding an even par (35), and Blake Rodgers a +9 (44). Morgan Harris and Cole Cropper split their grouping with +10 (45) for each.
The boys on the JV team competed in their first match ever and Chattahoochee took the match. We are proud of these young men and are looking forward to watching them progress throughout the season. Next up is the Johnny Paulk Invitational for the Varsity Boys in Jekyll Island on Saturday, 3/4, and the West Hall Invitational for the girls. Good luck to both teams
