SEASON END

FRESHMAN MISSES CUT AT AREA QUALIFIER, May 7
While freshman Spencer Lee did not make the cut at the Area Qualifier, he was happy with his score and set new goals for next year.

“I was happy with my score of 76, and with a few breaks, I know I could have made the next round. I missed the cut by only 2 strokes. Next year my goal includes being one of the medalists at the Area Tournament.”

The campus has not had a competitive golf team for seven years. Due to limited funds, golf was cut from the curriculum. A co-ed team was formed in the early spring and maintained six members, provided their own equipment and paid a $250 fee.

Lee was the only campus player who was invited to play in the Area Qualifier.

“The highlight of the tournament for me was making a 5-foot putt on the 17th hole for par,” Lee said. “The I made par on the 18th hole and finished strong and confident.”

The team played in their first tournament at Copper River Country Club on March 6.
