MHS golf teams taking the lead
Melbourne High School is well-represented in the sport of golf, for both the boys’ and girls’ teams are making themselves known across the region. They have gone from Cooper’s Hawk golf course to Turkey Mountain in Horseshoe Bend to Eagle Mountain in Batesville blazing a path of impressive scores and multiple first place finishes.
“The boys have played really well as a team. When one of them has a bad round, the other three pick it up. The girls just keep improving and getting better. We are beating teams now that we lost to at the first of the season.
Josie Love is shooting in the low 40s, which is really good not only for here but statewide,” commented Coach Mark Manry. Members of the 2015-16 girls golf team are Lexi Sitton, Josie Love, and Halle Jo Cooper. The boys golf team consists of Cole Lamb, Jared Chaney, Alec Price, Tyler Pemberton, Brian Blevins, Andrew Gunther, Adrian Black, Blake Howard, and Tanner Cooper.
