The Seymour Eagles girls’ golf team brought home a win over Morristown West last week with a team score of 97 to 103.
The Lady Eagles were led by Bailey Webb who was the medalist with a 45 on the very difficult Country Club of Morristown. The golf course is hilly and long with high rough. Webb commented, “I really played well considering the difficulty of this course. My short game was much better than recent matches.” Seymour was also led by Megan Gamble with a 52.
On the flip side, the Seymour boys’ team dropped a decision to Morristown West 158 to 186. In a losing cause, the Eagles were led by Michael Bennett with a 45, Justice Murphy 45, freshman Parker Rudder 47, Conner Simmons 49 and Lance Galyon 49 (only one 49 counted). In a boys high school match, only the top four scores count. In a girl’s match only the top two scores count.
The boy’s medalists were Kyle Grigsby with a 38 and Adam Long with a 38. Both players play for Morristown West. Coach Householder commented on the day. “I was very proud of Bailey Webb. That’s a good score on such a difficult golf course.”
As for the boys, Householder said “The boys struggled from the longer tees which were around 3,300 yards.” A normal distance for boys’ high school tees is 300 to 400 yards shorter.
The Sevier County Championship is coming up September 1st, 2nd and 3rd at Eagles Landing, Creekside and Gatlinburg Country Club, respectively.
