DAVID MILLER MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT
Thursday, April 27, 2017

As our invitational tournament continues to improve and attract the best teams in Alabama, the competition provides a challenge.  Playing 36-holes over two days on the RTJ - Magnolia Grove Falls and Crossings courses, the field of 15 saw perfect weather for low scoring.  The Bulldogs stumbled a bit on day one posting a 310 leaving us in seventh place and trailing leaders Mountain Brook and Houston Academy.  Day two saw even lower scoring as the conditions were perfect.  Mountain Brook took the title with an impressive 575 (+3) with Vestavia Hills and Providence Christian twenty shots behind.  The Bulldogs managed to move up one spot to 6th with a very solid 303 and great rounds from JP Cave (74), Andrew Graves (74) and Felix Ronderos (75).  Our confidence is high going into the state tournament starting with sectionals at the Country Club of Mobile May 1.

West Alabama Classic
Thursday, April 27, 2017

Boys varsity golf competed in the West Alabama Classic in Tuscaloosa on the challenging Ol'Colony Golf Course.  Andrew Graves led the Bulldogs charge on day one with a stellar 71 and a team total of 309 positioning us near the top.  Day 2 saw perfect weather allowing for several low scores.  JP Cave's 72 lead the team (followed by a 74 from Felix Ronderos, a 77 from Andrew Graves, and a 78 from Gregory Jones) to a season low 301 but it wasn't enough to climb into contention. 

 
The Azalea City Invitational saw weather shortened day one but UMS used the home course advantage leading the talented field.  Day two our goal was in reach and even with a sparkling 68 from JP Cave we were caught and finished in a tie for second 1 behind the tournament winner.  
 
Please congratulate JP Cave, Andrew Graves, Felix Ronderos, Gregory Jones, Thomas Barnett and PM Taupeka for their play.  
 
Our invitational tournament takes place April 24 & 24 at Magnolia Grove.  Wish the guys luck!

BULLDOG BOYS GOLF TEAM NEWS
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The varsity boys golf team competed March 10-11 in the Joe King Memorial held at the difficult Auburn University Club.  In three years we have not played our best at the AU Club but made a respectable showing finishing 6 of 18 teams.  JP Cave play extremely well and finished fourth overall with a 74 - 75 - 149 earning all-tournament team honors.


March 13-14 we traveled to Birmingham for the Bradley Johnson Memorial on the very challenging Greystone Country Club - Founders Course.  The tournament always provides an excellent test with the very best teams in the state from every classification. Not only are we the only 4A team competing, we are the second smallest classification represented.  With rain and temperatures in the 40s conditions were not favorable for low scores but we found a way to turn a mediocre result into a positive.  With a stellar 306 (75, 76, 77, 78) on day 2 we proved again we are one the best in Alabama and can compete with anyone.  Felix Ronderos led the team with a 73 - 77 - 150 total and a T-7th overall finish and missed all-tournament team by 2 shots.  
Andrew Graves, JP Cave, Felix Ronderos, Gregory Jones and Thomas Barnett showed tremendous resolve and pride in very difficult conditions.  They represent what UMS-Wright athletics is about and make me a very proud coach.  Please congratulate the boys on their play.

BULLDOGS WIN FARMERS INSURANCE
Monday, March 06, 2017

In a unique format, the boys and girls teams joined to capture the first annual Farmers Insurance Invitational by sweeping all three formats.  
In the scramble format, Maize Summersell, Felix Ronderos and Gregory Jones shot a blistering 29 to win by a shot.  In the modified alternate shot Lauren Gilchrist and JP Cave shot an impressive 35 to win by two shots.  Finally, Andrew Graves needed a chip in par and three birdies to defeat the other competitors in a single elimination shootout.  Andrew's birdie on the 3rd extra hole sealed the sweep for UMS!  
Please congratulate these players, it was another great victory for our program(s).
