More GOOD NEWS from the Grove Boys Golf team.

They played in their 5A Regional Tournament this past Monday at Cherry Springs in Tahlequah, OK. They scored well enough as a team to finish sixth and qualify for the State Tournament which will be at Emerald Falls, neat Tulsa. Individual scores for the two-round event were; Trae Fairchild 158, Tyler Busch 160, Ben Tate 179, Patrick Lippit 181 and Shelby Morris 183.

To think that this team is comprised of two freshmen, one sophomore, one junior and only one senior is exciting to say the least. These boys (men) have had a fabulous season to now build on. I can’t think of a better start for these young golfers.

Who knows what might happen at the State tournament.
