The Waldron Bulldogs golf team headed for the state tournament on Tuesday, October 5. Although the team didn’t take first, there is certainly no shame in the golf dogs’ game.

A remarkable feat in itself, the fact that this team has achieved so much–including four consecutive qualifying years to the state tournament.

The boys team finished third, behind two private schools at The Creeks Golf Course at Cave Springs.

“Didn’t quite finish what we started but so dadgum proud of these dudes,” shared Coach Josh Atchley. “They are good ones and have great support systems pushing each of them. I’m lucky to get to coach them and have enjoyed the ride that’s for sure. Got a solid group returning next year to keep the streak going. Waldron show these dudes some love…these guys make it easy to root for them.”

Bulldog dad, Chad Owens added: “Golf has been this kid’s friend for a while now. He has leaned on it and it has definitely taught him some life lessons and allowed him to make some lifelong relationships. Today he ended his journey at the state tournament. I know his heart is hurting a little today and mine too. We were so blessed to get to experience his last round with him…Like Mr. Metcalf said ‘this is year four to the state tournament for these boys, this is like a victory lap.’ Today, I learned perspective. Thank Coach Josh Atchley, you’re the best golf coach I know! You may not know much about it but you know how to love these kids and make lifelong memories. We are all thankful for you!”
