Boys Cross Country wins County!
Lady Cougar Golf Team Advances to Regionals next Saturday!
The Lady Cougar girl’s golf team were caught by surprise as they waited for their last player, Abby Simmerman, to turn in her scorecard. Not only was she the last player for the Cougars, but the last player of the entire sectional to come in to an awaiting crowd around the 18th hole. Having just shot a very errant fairway shot that hit the scoreboard and scooted off near the tee box for hole 1, Abby walked her way through the parting crowd to her ball. With the 18th hole flag no where in sight, she casually paced her way uphill to see the green, accessed the flag position, walked back downhill to her ball, and very casually hit a high wedge shot between two trees 80 yards to just short of the edge of the green. Not realizing the importance of her score yet, Abby finished out the hole with a double bogie. Coach Patrick also did not know her score as she never wants to be aware of scores until they are officially recorded. I feel that I am able to have a fair assessment of how the girl’s are playing by just watching their hits, watching how they walk on the course, looking at their faces, and watching them walk in with the scorecard. We were the last team to come in for a very long day of play and I found the coaches from Seeger and Western Boone asking me if I thought we would be less than a 431. I told them I really had no idea due to many ups and downs in the play of all players. I didn’t realize they were tied at 431 for third place then. So while I was waiting for Abby and saw her errant shot, all I was hoping for was a 430 to get us to smock. As it was her score of 98 carded us a 423. It was a very exciting first ever sectional team advancement. It was the top goal of the team as well as a coaching career goal of me as coach to get a girl’s team to regionals. I felt this was our best year for it to happen with the players we have. All the players did well. Nyiah Goff shot a great score of 101; Haylee Greene was a little off her game carding a 113; Ashley Lawless surprised herself shooting 111; and Brittany Bonifacius shot a 126. All the players played a smart round of golf, keeping themselves out of sand traps, water and tall grasses. Perhaps the biggest problem for all teams were the fast greens. The Lady Cougars will practice hard this week on some of the shortcomings before heading to Smock Golf Course in Greenwood for regionals.
