Tue, Mar. 7, 2017 - [Golf]

The Lion and Lady Lion golf teams began their spring season Monday in Montgomery, AL, playing in the Faulkner Spring Invitational at Lagoon Park Golf Course.

Windy conditions played havoc with a majority of the field. Junior Easton Lavelle paced the Lions on Day One of the Invitational, shooting a one-over par 73, putting him tied for first place individually. Freshman Trey Lashlee shot a solid round of 77 while Ben Burnette and Lance Moore rounded out the team scoring, each shooting 78. The Lions team score of 306 finds them in a tie for third place, six shots off the lead.

The Lady Lions struggled with the windy conditions. Sophomore Kayland Boling led the way, shooting 82. Playing as an individual, Emily Whitnell followed close behind, firing an 83. Kirsten Parker's 86, Alex Hodgkinson's 89, and Brittany Myers' 90 wrapped up the team scoring. The Lady Lions team score of 347 puts them in seventh place.
 
Final round play begins today with a shotgun start at 9:00 AM in Montgomery, Ala.
