The Bryan County High School ladies golf team, along with their coach Ron Lewis, made the long journey to Columbus for the Class A State Golf tournament on Monday where they took tenth place.
Golf team members Jessica Waters, Franny Carter, Meredith Shuman and Lindsay Seger joined players from fourteen other region schools in the all day tournament at Bull Creek Golf Course.
Each player was grouped in four person competition with players who scored equally throughout regular region play and the top two scores from each school were added together for the team total.
Jessica Waters scored the highest for the Ladyskins with a 18 hole total of 119 and Lindsay Seger was second highest scorer for the team with 131 which gave the Ladyskins a total 250. Meredith Shuman scored a total of 133 and Franny Carter finished the day with a total of 140.
Brookstone High School, the hosting team, finished the day with 194 which gave them the first place title and the State Championship and Ware Magnet School from Ware County took the second place title with 199.
The Ladyskins each had shining moments throughout the day, but the rolling terrain of the Columbus Course proved to be a challenge for each player and several miss hits along with difficulty on the putting green were the biggest obstacles the girls had to face.
"I am extremely proud of our ladies golf team," said Coach Lewis. "We have six hungry beginners and they worked hard to achieve their most deserving success. I believe with professional instruction and guidance, these girls could make even greater strides next year."
All participating schools were invited to a sports banquet on Sunday Night where they were served dinner and were entertained by guest speaker, pro golfer Larry Mize.
The boys team just missed advancing to state, placing third in Region 3A.
