Hunter Air Force Base golf course was the host site for the Region 3-A girls golf tournament held April 16 in Savannah. They got beat out by Calvary and Claxton to end their season.
The Lady Skins of Bryan County may have felt like they were in a foreign country as this was the first time this season that they have not played on their home course at Black Creek Golf Club in Bryan County. The Lady Skins were grouped with the other two competing teams from Claxton and Calvary as they prepared for their early morning tee time. The fairly inexperienced and young Bryan County golf gals strapped their bags on their shoulders and headed on their journey throughout the Hunter course as they battled not only a new atmosphere, but also windy and chilly conditions as they came up a bit short at the end of the day as Calvary and Claxton claimed the top two spots that will advance them to the State Tournament.
The Lady Skins’ four participating girls in this tournament were Ashley Cobb, Hannah Ethridge, Shelbi Traywick and Lynn Nelson.
"I am pleased overall in what these girls accomplished this season," Coach Morgan Jersey said. "I would have liked to had one of the top two spots, but these girls gained valuable playing time this year, learned a lot about the game and gained some confidence that will help us as we go into next year. We are a young squad and the girls played against some tough 3-A competition. We just came up a little short, but we gained some great experience. All our girls had fun and that is the main thing."
The Redskin boys played in the Region tournament last night at Hunter against Savannah Country Day, and Calvary. A much improved Julian Hines will be playing in the #1 slot as he has been the most consistent golfer, according to Coach Jersey. Also expecting to contribute will be first-year player Mike Mitchell who continues to improve.
