The Waldron Boys’ Golf Team capped off a dominant regular season with the school’s first-ever district golf championship. The Bulldogs finished with a team score of 265 which outpaced second place by 12 strokes. Waldron will be one of eight teams that will compete for a state championship at Blytheville Country Club on October 9th. Individually, Lane Metcalf finished 2nd overall with an 87, Jaden Hutchens added an 88, Jesse Dees scored a 90, and Drew Owens shot a 95.

The boys’ team features no seniors and is a squad, from top to bottom, that on any particular day any one of them could challenge for first place. The team consists of freshmen Jacob Daggs, Kason Moudy, Will Solomon, Peyton Lipham, sophomores Drew Owens, Lane Tallmadge, Lane Metcalf, Camdon Holcomb, and Juniors Jesse Dees and Jaden Hutchens.

“These guys have worked so hard since the spring to put themselves in a position to be successful this year,” expresses Coach Josh Atchley. “Hopefully, we can have a good showing at state this year then repeat it all again next season since we will return everyone. I would like to say thank you to not only all the guys but their support systems as well. I am blessed with guys whose parents and grandparents are consistently getting them to the course and working with them on their games.”

“Also, we have an added bonus to have guys like Reggie Owens who work with our golfers anytime they ask and volunteers countless hours at the course. This golf season has been a success because of Reggie, Jeanetta Byford that runs the clubhouse, and the entire Waldron Country Club board who are inviting to our guys and make it possible for them to be successful. Thank You all!

Kaylin Watson continued her successful senior year by capping it with another trip to the state golf match at DeGray Lake State Park Golf Course in Bismarck on October 1st. Kaylin shot the best district score she has shot in her four years on the golf team with a 112. “You know Kaylin is tough when she has to put up with being the only girl at most of the golf matches around all the boys. She qualified for state as a sophomore and was disappointed after last season for not returning. She let me know this spring that state was her goal this year, and she got there. She has been consistent all year for us and looks to continue that into next week. I am proud of her and so excited she reached her goal for the year.”
