Lady golfers took swing at Peach
By Greg Sullivan
The Morgan County High School Lady Dogs golf team participated in the Georgia Peach Tournament at Hard Labor Creek on Saturday where the girls shot well in their respective groups in a tournament of 194 individuals.
Rachel Peters and Lauren Conway participated in the B flight competition where nine hole scores are kept in the tournament's second highest class. Conway shot a 50 and Peters shot 52 in the round.
Reba McClellan shot a 56 in the C flight, also playing nine holes. Nicolette Boissonneau played in D flight competition which was a nine-hole scramble. Boissonneau's team of four finished second in D flight.
"The girls' play right now is consistent," said Lady Dog golf coach Pam Hooten. "I am looking for the ninth graders, Reba Nicolette, to start dropping their scores since they are becoming more comfortable with competition and are no longer nervous."
"Rachel and Lauren have the ability to put together rounds in the forties instead of the fifties," Hooten said. "As the weather warms up, they will start to play better. It is tough to score well when it is cold and windy."
The team travels to Heritage on Thursday. They go to Athens to take on Athens Academy on next Tuesday.
