DHS golf season ends at sub-state tournamentBy Matt Cole Published 10:30am Wednesday, May 7, 2014
The Demopolis High School golf team lost out at the sub-state match at Lagoon Park in Montgomery on Monday.
Jordan Williams led the way for the Tigers with the low score of 77.
Demopolis head coach Mike Black said Williams was in the running for an individual spot at state until the last flight came in and beat him out by two strokes.
Black said he was proud of the way Williams and teammates Braden Spiller, Sam Yeager, Blake Bryant and Chandler Stuedeman played in the match.
“These young men are all seniors and will be missed from the golf team next year,” Black said. “They leave with a regular season record of 101 wins and 4 losses in the last four seasons. They also have played in four sectionals and advanced the last three years to the sub state matches. They have also won several tournaments and have medalists in almost all regular season matches. I am pleased with their efforts and have been pleased to coach these fine young athletes.”
On the girls side, Anna Reid also came up short of the goal of making state. She missed the cut by just three strokes.
“Anna will be back for two more years and has a great future in the sport,” Black said.
“She played against boys at most of the matches we were in this year and has not lost to any boys or girls in regular season matches. I believe Anna will become a state champion for DHS in the near future. She has also advanced from sectionals to sub state for the past two seasons.”
For the boys, Spiller has accepted a scholarship from Mississippi College to play golf. Williams will attend Vanderbilt, Stuedeman will attend Auburn and Yeager will attend Alabama. Black said he’s still working to get a golf scholarship for Bryant to a school in Mississippi.
