Lady Tiger Courtney Cochran qualified for state at the region tournament held in Calhoun.
Cochran shot a 93 to qualify for state as a low medalist, “but she usually shoots in the low 80s,” said Jo Fassnacht, Adairsville’s golf coach. “You can bet she will be spending a lot of time on the golf course, looking to improve her game before state begins.”
He said her score was the lowest for a team not advancing to state.
“Overall, we finished second in the region, but because the way the rules are we did not qualify for state as a team,” he said.
Adairsville’s girls’ golf team was comprised of Cochran, Tamera Johnson and Harley Chambers, all sophomores. As a team, the Lady Tigers compiled a record of 5-1 in a golf season shortened by inclement weather and spring break.
Playing in a postseason golf tournament is nothing new for Cochran, who won the middle school golf championship.
The Class AAA state playoffs are scheduled for May 20.
