Girls’ golf achievements
St. Joseph School golfer Presli Webb was the medalist on Sept. 28 at the 2A State Tournament held at Turkey Mountain Golf Club in Salem (Fulton County.) Her score of 83 bested 60 girls on the 18-hole course. She will now move on to the Overall Tournament to be held Oct. 14 at the Pleasant Valley Country Club in Little Rock. Both she and Kaitlyn Kordsmeier, who shot a 98, were named All-State players.
Both girls competed individually since the girls’ team scores in the District Tournament weren’t low enough to make State.
