Bulldogs End Golf Season By Outdriving The Competition


The Bulldog Golf season has ended after one of the most successful seasons in school history. Five different Bulldogs teed-off over the last two weeks at the State Tournament. At DeGray Lake State Park Golf Course, Kaylin Watson competed as an individual. Kaylin was a little under the weather but carded her best score at the state level with a 110. “Kaylin finished her golf career at Waldron as a two-time state qualifier. I’d probably say her most impressive feat was enduring being the only female for most of the season. Kaylin consistently cut strokes off her game throughout the past four seasons and is surrounded by people who thoroughly enjoy watching her play and compete. I will truly miss having Kaylin around to help me control the guys,” stated Coach Josh Atchley.

The boys traveled as a team up the road to Blytheville Country Club last week as one of only 12 teams to qualify for the State Tournament. The four golfers to compete were juniors Jaden Hutchens and Jesse Dees, and sophomores Drew Owens and Lane Metcalf. The team did not have as good of a showing as they had hoped but still managed to finish 5th overall with a team score of 280.

“Although we didn’t achieve our goal, I am still proud of these guys and the amount of time that they have put into their own games. We improved on our place at State from last season and hope to do the same next year. Jaden, Lane, Drew, and Jesse have all come a long way from their first seasons and there is no doubt that they will continue that work into next season. I am excited about next year and know that there is an abundance of talent on this team from the juniors to the freshman, as well as the 8th graders who will join the team next season.”
