The golf teams have performed well in the past couple tournaments. The girls finished eighth out of 16 teams in the Lady Pirate Classic at Harbor Lakes Country Club in Granbury last weekend. The boys finished fifth out of nine in the Lovejoy Spring Classic. During spring break, the girls team plays on March 11 at Waters Creek Golf Course.

Head coach Brent Moseley was pleased with the girls’ performance against tough competition.

“This was a highly competitive tournament, with several ranked 6A schools competing.” Moseley said. “The girls set two school records. First they improved on the lowest single round, team total 340.  Second they set the lowest two-day total, 714, which beat the previous score by over 60 shots.  We have a great chance at district this year.”

The golf team’s season is still new and there are three really strong teams in the district including Lovejoy. Moseley stressed the importance of players working through spring break to continue preparation for the district tournament.

“Over spring break several are traveling a bit,” Moseley said. “We will have a couple of scheduled practices. I hope most will practice and play quite bit on there own.”
