Coaches Charlie Payne and David Graham said they couldn’t be prouder of all the golfers this year.

“Tremendous season with one of the best teams that Coach Graham and I have ever coached,” Payne said. “Cannot say enough on the improvement and effort this team gave this year. Winning the Junior Piedmont District by winning each match was awesome.

“The team would like to give special thanks to our athletic director (Justin Saunders) and school for providing a safe environment for the team. Thanks to the staff and owner of Greens Folly Golf Course for allowing the team to play and practice. Also thanks to all the parents and fans for their support during the season. It was a lot of fun and I’m already looking forward to next season.”
