The WCHS boys and girls golf teams competed in the Murfreesboro Invitational on Thursday afternoon at Champions Runs Golf Course.
Seven teams participated in the event, besides WCHS, including: Chattanooga Christian, Cookeville, White House, White County, USN, Rhea County and Crockett County.
Head coach J.W. Holt had this to say about the tournament and how he thought both teams played.
“The tournament was a good confidence booster for the girls. This is where our district tournament is going to be played."
Bracton Womack shot 68 on the day as he tied for second place in individual competition. Levi Craven shot 84 on the day and Nate Cantrell, Jayden Pyburn and Peyton Haston rounded out the rest of the Pioneers as they shot 86, 87, and 99, respectively.
The boys shot an overall score as a team of 325. That wasn’t good enough to place as a team.
For the Lady Pioneers, Valeria Vargas and Alli Mingle won their match in the girls team competition. Vargas shot 88, while Mingle shot 87 on the day as they won the competition by 10 strokes, 185-175.
Holt had this to say about the play of Mingle and Vargas and what the team as a whole needs to do to get better, “It was the first time that Valeria and Alli had played this course and for them to win on it, it gives them the confidence that they need.”
Holt concluded, “As a team, we need to play better. I think playing this course one more time before the district tournament will put us in a good position to compete for a district championship.”
Both teams will participate in the Cookeville Early Bird Tournament tomorrow at the Tennessee Tech Golf Club and will look to maintain their recent success. Tee time is set for 9 a.m.
