Lady Cats Golfer Mariam Tran Wins First, Team Takes Fourth At SSCC Tournament Monday

Despite a flurry of injuries and illness, the Lady Cats Golf Team did quite well at a Sulphur Springs Country Club tournament held Monday.

Junior Mariam Tran shot her lowest round in a high school tournament, a one under par 71, to win the tournament. Lady Cats Golf Coach Whitney Spigener said Tran has shot a 68 before.

Several days before the tournament Tran turned her ankle and Coach Spigener it as braced up before play Monday. The Lady Cats also had to finish without their #3 golfer, Charleigh Potts. She sprained her ankle in the middle of her round and had to withdraw. Coach Spigener said the Lady Cats also did not have junior Makayla Pullen who was sick at home with a virus.

Despite all that the Lady Cats shot 411, good enough for fourth place among nine teams. Coach Spigener said the Lady Cats were ahead of district foe Lindale.

For the Lady Cats, senior Addison White broke 100 for the first time carding a 99. Freshman Mykylie Meador shot 119 and freshman Mattye Schmidt shot 122.

Coach Spigener said she likes to play a few fall tournaments because the weather is better than the cold and wet conditions golfers often get in early February.

The Lady Cats will have a fundraiser tournament next month, the First Annual Wildcat Scramble, on Nov. 9.
