The Bryan County High School boys golf season came to an end on April 22 in the Region 3-A tournament held at Hunter Army Air Force Base golf course. Five region foes - Savannah Country Day, Calvary, Claxton, ECI, and Bryan County - traded swings against each other to see who would claim the top two seeds and advance to the State tournament.
At the end of the day, Bryan County had finished one position short of advancing. The Skins finished in third place ahead of Claxton and ECI. SCD led the pack and took hold of the first place seed heading into the State tournament.
Redskin Julian Hines led the team with a score of 95. This was followed by Brandon Lyons (97), Josh Temple (107) and Mike Mitchell (115).
This season has seen the Redskins make valuable improvements, not only in course management and scoring, but in lessons that Coach Morgan Jersey said can carry over into next year.
"I am pleased with the progress we made this year, especially since we have such a raw and fairly inexperienced squad," Jersey said. "This inexperience combined with some nervousness seemed to affect our play today and, against good golfers like we were up against today, it’s hard to come out on top against talented, experienced players. Our goal this year was to build a fundamentally sound foundation for the future and I think we did that for the most part. I am proud of these guys for the way they competed and look forward to next year as we continue to build a winning program at Bryan County."
