The 2019 Waldron Bulldogs Golf Season is set to tee off on Wednesday, August 7th at the Waldron Country Club. This year’s team looks to build on last season’s success as the golf team graduated three seniors that went on to play in the state golf match. The girls’ team features seniors Kaylin Watson and freshman Kaylee Day. The duo has been working on their game throughout the summer and even though they are small in number, they hope to both make a push to be individual qualifiers for the state golf match on October 1st.
The boys’ team will look to return to the state match as a team this year after the school’s first ever trip last season. Three of the top four scorers return from last season’s squad which still does not feature a senior. Juniors Jaden Hutchens and Jesse Dees have both improved this summer and look to be scorers on the team, along with sophomores Drew Owens, Lane Metcalf, Lane Tallmadge, and Camden Holcomb. Adding to the returns are freshman Payton Lipham, Jacob Daggs, Kason Moudy, and Will Solomon.
Coach Josh Atchley added, “We hope to build on the success we had a season ago and send six golfers again to the state tournament. It was the first time Waldron had sent a boys team to compete in the state tournament and we managed to do that with one senior, one sophomore, and two freshmen. I am excited about this upcoming season!”
