BONIFAY — Recently, local schools met at Dogwood Lakes Country Club to tee off in a match up preparing for districts.
Playing in the event were Bethlehem High School, Holmes County High School, Ponce de Leon High School, and Marianna High School. The Marianna Bulldogs came out on top. Leading the team in the number one spot, with a score of 38, was senior Kody Bryan. The total score for the Bulldogs was 167, beating the Bethlehem Wildcats by 11 strokes.
Eli Hendrix, a BHS Junior, secured the number one position on the Wildcats team with a score of a 43. Due to a short number of players, HCHS and PDL were not eligible to qualify in the match up, as each team needed four players to compete. Playing for PDL was Nick Price, and holding the top spot for Holmes County High was senior, Seth Taylor.
Bethlehem and Holmes County High met for a match on Sept. 16, and the Wildcats came out victorious with a 198 for the win over the Devil’s 203. While HCHS Senior, Seth Taylor, with a score of 38, maintained the top spot for the Blue Devils the number four player from BHS, junior, Brett Mitchell, locked in the win for the Wildcats with a score of 55, giving the team a five-stroke advantage.
On Thursday, Oct. 10, Bethlehem will face off with Ponce de Leon at Dogwood Lakes, and the District match will follow shortly thereafter on Oct. 15. Come out and support these student athletes, and maybe play a few rounds yourself.
