For the first time EVER in our high school's history, our golf team is headed to STATE! The team placed 6th to become the final team out of 12 to make the cut yesterday! Congratulations, boys!
But then we played the waiting game.....
For an hour and a half we waited to find out the results of the other teams. Can you imagine waiting an hour and a half to see if a team won a basketball game or football game? How about not knowing how your team was doing until after each quarter? What about not knowing your standings until half-time? What if you couldn't tell how your teammates were doing? Golf is an interesting sport!
So we made it! By two shots....beating out two other teams by just that little bit....to get the final 6th placing to make it to State. We made it! I say "we", but I didn't do any of the work :). THEY MADE IT! What a GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT! But "we", as a community, as a school, as the golf family as a whole....made it!
And we're excited!
The State games will be long, too. Thirty-six holes one day. Eighteen the next. Two days of play. We're not sure how the teams will be ranked. We're not sure what will happen. We do know we're glad to get to be there. We know that our boys will play hard and try their best. And that's what matters!
Congratulations, Tigers! We're proud of you!
