At Cherokee Creek Country Club in Booneville on Thursday, August 22, the Waldron Bulldogs golf teams kept up their winning ways and now upgrade to 4-0 on the season.
Kaylin Watson and Kylee Day competed as individuals on the girls’ side of things. Watson carded a 51 which took fifth overall and Day added a 53. “We didn’t have our best days but the girls still found ways to work on their games. I’m proud of them, especially having to endure being the only two girls,” added Coach Josh Atchley.
Jaden Hutchens finished second in the match with a 41, with Drew Owens matching his best score of the season at a 43. Lane Metcalf rounded out the scorers with a 46, which brought the boys’ team total to a 130. That score outpaced second by 13 strokes and added to the Bulldogs win total. “I was impressed with all my guys. We had six golfers compete and all of them had decent outings. I really need some of the guys who are just outside the top four averages to challenge some of those current scorers. If that starts to happen, we become a team that could really make a run at some championships.”
It’s been a good week for the Bulldogs with two wins and two golfers celebrating birthdays. Jaden Hutchens celebrated his 16 birthday on Tuesday the 20th and Lane Metcalf will turn 15 on Saturday the 24th. Maybe the Bulldogs can keep the birthday magic at their next match Tuesday, August 27 at the Waldron Country Club.
