Victory! The girl’s golf team finished their record season with a bang.

The Lady Charger golfers wrapped up their spectacular season at Quail Chase Golf Course with players Macie Brown, Alayna Wells, Hallie Ogle, Taylor Young, Shelby Hatter, and Liz Swift. In the tournament, Brown shot a 72, Wells shot a 111, Ogle shot a 126, Young shot a 144, Hatter shot a 146, and Swift shot a 139. 

Brown qualified for state and shot a 74 and a 69, with a total of 141. She won the KHSAA state championship on Oct. 7, which was a massive victory for her and the entire golf team as a whole, as well as the school. “I think obviously the success Macie had with the state championship was pretty great, but being able to fill the whole team and post a team score in our first region in several years, made it a pretty awesome season,” Steinmetz said, the girl’s golf coach.

Prior to the state championship and Quail Chase tournament, the Bluegrass Invitational was a hit for the ladies too. Macie Brown won first place and shot a 66, Alayna Wells shot a 106, and Shelby Hatter shot a 135. “It’s definitely been my best high school season so far. Just because I won every tournament I played in but also to win region and state was super cool this year,” Brown said.
