GHS girls compete at Abilene

The Granbury Lady Pirates ventured west to Abilene for the annual Halloween Golf Classic.

The Lady Pirates finished 21st with a two-day score of 816. San Antonio Churchill won the event with a 586.

The Lady Pirates shot 414 on the Maxwell course and 402 on the Diamondback course. Diamondback is the site of the regional tournament in the spring.

The Lady Pirates were led by Chelsea Judge, who shot 190 (92-88). She was followed by Juliana Eckley with a 207 (107-100), Skylar Woodward at 214 (106-108), Myranda Allen at 215 (109-106) and Lauren Burns with a 241 (122-119), which did not count in the team total.

“These kids are working very hard on their game,” said Lady Pirate coach Becky Addison. “They are also very competitive, so I have no doubt we will see a great difference in our scores in our next two fall tournaments, as well as in the spring.”

The Lady Pirates are playing in Burleson this weekend. Junior Macaul Montgomery will be making her first trip with the varsity as she has been ill and unable to participate, said Addison.

“She is another player with great potential if she can stay healthy,” said Addison. “Having her in the lineup will definitely help down the road.

“These six girls will be making the final two fall varsity tournaments. One will be playing as a medalist and the other five as a team. I feel they are the strongest players at this point in the season, but I have six more young players playing JV who could very challenge for varsity positions come spring.”
