The weather was just right for golf at Black Creek Golf Course as the golf teams from Richmond Hill High School teed it up lasst week against their county rival Bryan County High.

When the sun had gone down and all was said and done, it was the Wildcats coming to the clubhouse with the lowest score totals to win the match.

The Richmond Hill boys came in with a 180 total and Bryan County finished at 218. The low medalist on the day was Richmond Hill senior Tyler Steptoe, who shot a 37 against the course par of 36.

"Tyler is the strength of this team," Wildcat Coach Alex Gray said. "Tyler brings that veteran leadership that is invaluable, and he is a leader on and off the course."

The Wildcats have nine boys on their team which provides Coach Gray with a good mix of talent.

"Having nine players gives us a nice melting pot and provides us a good mixture of experienced guys. We only have one guy that has not played before," he said.

Steptoe plays in the No. 1 spot and gets a good push from fellow senior, Ryan Tillman who plays No. 2.

Playing in the No. 1 spot for Bryan County was Chris Roberts and Josh Norton held the No. 2 slot.

"I wasn’t real pleased with our performance today and our scores were not what I was hoping to see," Redskin Coach Morgan Jersey said. "We knew that Richmond Hill had some players that would post some pretty good scores, and our players probably put more pressure on themselves because of it."

The Lady ‘Cats were also on the course and posted a score of 90 on seven holes. The Lady ‘Skins came in with a score of 96. Brittany Jarrell brought in a score of 40 from the No. 1 spot for Richmond Hill.

The Lady Skins were led by No. 2 player Shelbi Traywick, who posted a final score of 46.

The Redskins were back on the tee boxes Thursday against Tattnall County and came out with their second win of the season against the lone loss to Richmond Hill.

"Take away the Richmond Hill match, and I have been pretty pleased with the performance overall of my players," Jersey said.

The Wildcats were back in action March 10, where they lost to Calvary despite a respectable 44 from Steptoe.

"Calvary had 168 shots, we had 207," Gray said. "It was a very windy and cold afternoon. Calvary is a sharp team with good experienced players while we are a young team with a lot of newcomers."
