BC golfers on hunt for a title

If they continue to play as they have been, the Bears should have no problems bringing home some titles from the golf course.

Competitors were no match for the girls varsity team, as they won in both Swainsboro and Metter in recent matches.

Nicole Rachels and Tiffany Farmer combined for 97 last week in Swainsboro, defeating the home team by 24 strokes. ECI fell last with a 129 for the day. Rachels shot 45 while Farmer finished at 52. In Metter, Farmer’s course total of 50 and Bailee Adkins’ 57 combined for the win.

The boys varsity team narrowly lost in Swainsboro, falling just three strokes behind the host’s total of 172. ECI finished last with 223.

Dalton Quick shot 39, followed by Dalton Moss and Lee Justice, each with 43, and Kaleb Tobat, 50. The same boys took out Metter on Monday by two strokes, with Moss leading with a low 44 on the course, followed by Quick, 45, Justice, 46, and Tobat, 48.

In middle school golf, Riali Marchman and Katie Mayton defeated Metter as well, with the pair combining for a course total of 98 compared to Metter’s 130. Marchman shot 44 and Mayton, 54.

BCHS athletic director and golf coach Wade Marchman said each player has been working hard.

“Everyone’s attitudes have been good, and I see improvement in their games individually,” he said. “We’ve just got to keep improving and play and practice over spring break. We’ll hit practice hard the two weeks after the break leading up to region championship week. We’ve just go to keep taking steps in right direction.”

The Bears hosted a match yesterday (Tuesday) at the Waynesboro Country Club, but results were not available at press time.
