The Morgan County High School golf team began their 2014 season last Monday, Feb. 24, at the Double Oaks golf course in Commerce, where they took on Madison County.
Morgan County’s boys won their first meet of the season 203-164. Zach Webb and Carson Womack each posted a 39 for the round, while Eamon Owen, Gregory Pecore, and Baylie Fowler each shot a 43. New to the team was Clayton Gasaway, who earned a 46 in the round. MCHS Golf Coach Tom Duff stated that the team is “off to a good start” and should improve over last year’s performances.
He also noted that Zach Webb, who is returning from an injury last season, should provide an additional “boost” to the team.
The Morgan County girls weren’t able to finish the round because of this time of year’s early sunsets, but the team, made up of Mary Clark Ferguson, Hayden Massey, Kayle Fortune, and Shelby Kinchen, was able to get in some good holes of competition before having to call the round. The team played in their second competition of the year this past Tuesday, March 4 against Walnut Grove at Hard Labor Creek.
The Morgan County boys will play in a region preview round at Highland Walk in Royston tomorrow, March 7, and then the entire team will host Greene County at Hard Labor Creek next Tuesday, March 11.
