Coach Doane has some exciting things to say about girls golf! "Yesterday, we had a conference match at Triple Creek Golf Course in Cole Camp. Ashlee Martin shot her season best and finished 2nd overall for the night. Abbey continues to improve each match and I am very proud of her. It is always important to be playing your best golf towards the end of the season and I am excited to see these girls get one more week of prep in before the District Tournament." ⛳ GR8 job!
The cross country team traveled to Hermitage this morning. Despite the massive hill the Tigers had to climb, today was filled with season records(SR), personal records(PR), and course records(CR). For those unfamiliar, SRs are the fastest time for that season for each runner, PRs are the fastest they have ever finished a race, and CRs are their fastest time at that meet. The high school runners ran 3.1 miles while the junior high runners ran 2 miles. Here are their times. High School Eric Thomas-22:59 (SR/CR) Isaac Townsend-23:22 (PR) Savannah Nilson- 27:44 (SR/CR) Junior High Wyatt Crawford-14:41 (PR) Emmit Porter-15:39 (PR) Riley Donaldson-16:33 (PR) Callie Knoernschild-17:05 (PR) Wyatt, Riley, and Callie also earned medals for finishing in the Top 20 of their races. Great job, Tigers!

Ava finished with another Top 20 and Ashlee keeps setting her personal best on 18 hole matches. It’s always good to continue to improve your score throughout the year.
