Results of the Coweta Golf Tournament

Zane McElroy. 83
Jake Henry. 95
Bailey Stamper 99
Hayden McNeal 119
-- Team Total = 396
Lane Reed 124

Zane played well today and shot the best round for us this year. Some of the talk on the way home was toughest course I ever played.

Very tough course and just getting back from spring break did not help very much. Which means we need to get to work on our game. Players have made a commitment to improve.

Still believe we are right there with our game with Jake, Zane and Bailey. Hayden, Lane, Seth, Logan, and Patrick will all improve as we get more practice time in.

Thanks, Coach Pratt (3/24/2014)
