Chelsea Judge’s memorable Granbury High golf career came to an end recently with a fourth straight appearance at the Class 4A Region I Golf Tournament.
Judge finished 31st with a two-day total of 178 at the Diamondback Golf Course in Abilene. She shot 88 on the first day and a 90 on the second.
“She really hit the ball as well as I have seen her hit it, but not judging the high wind gusts on a couple of holes kept her out of the hunt for a medalist spot at state,” said Granbury coach Becky Addison.
“She can hold her head high and be very proud of her accomplishments in her four-year career.”
Judge’s second consecutive individual appearance at regionals extended the Lady Pirates streak of having a team or individual at the tournament to seven seasons. In her first two seasons, Judge was part of the Lady Pirates qualifying team .
Judge led the Lady Pirates at regionals in 2012, shooting a 191 (93-98). Last season she shot 192 (96-96).
Judge was named second-team All-District 7-4A in each of her final three seasons. She was also named academic all-state by the Texas Girls Coaches Association this season.
“Chelsea has been one of my most reliable players,” said Addison.
“She is very involved with Granbury High besides the golf program, but never left me hanging when I needed her. Chelsea has done an amazing job of proving sharing is not a problem with proper communication and commitment from the athlete and coach.”
Judge plans to attend the Texas Tech University and study pre-med.
“I will miss her greatly for her work ethic and commitment to being one of the best,” said Addison. “I have no doubts she will be successful in whatever she attempts.”
