For the fourth consecutive year, the Waldron Bulldogs golf team has qualified and will be traveling to the State Tournament. After capturing their third straight 4-3A Conference Championship, the Dogs show no signs of slowing down. “These guys have been locked in all season ready for their chance to win another championship. I am so fortunate that these guys have a desire to succeed and push one another to reach the team’s potential,” added Coach Josh Atchley. 

Once the scorecards started to roll in, it became evident that this team wasn’t going to be challenged. With a team score of 231, Waldron paced the competition and left Booneville at a distant second spot at 261. The Bulldogs were led in scoring by senior Drew Owens with a74, which was the top score on the day and earned him the match medalist honor. In a field of over 40 players, the top 3 scores were all Bulldogs with Lane Tallmadge shooting adding a 77 and Lane Metcalf carding an 80. Noah Patrick finished sixth overall with an 88. 

Macey Owens, the lone Lady Bulldog golfer, finished her first District Tournament with a 115. She finished fifth individually, and the top four scores earned a trip to the girl’s State Golf Tournament. “Macey has done a great job her freshman year of getting accustomed to the pressure of competing in a high school match. She has cut several strokes off from the start of the season. Look for big things from her in the coming years!

Next up for the Dogs is a trip to The Creeks Golf Course at Cave Springs on October 5th. “Proud, that’s what everyone should feel about these guys. I am proud of them and their work ethic, proud of their support systems for backing them over the last several seasons, proud for our school and community to have these guys to represent them at the state level. They wanted this one, but the championship they have all been locked on is the big one on the 5th. Fly the W!”
