Bulldog Girls Golf News
Tuesday, April 11, 2017

The weather was perfect and the course was challenging Vestavia’s Hike the Hills Invitational. Nevertheless, he varsity girls returned with a little spring in their step!  For two consecutive days, the team shot a respectable 242 with several firsts: Lauren Gilchrist shot a season best 71 on day 2, Brooke Swain got her first eagle, Maizie Summersell shaved four strokes from her previous round, and L.K. Graham posted her best two season scores to date.  This is a crucial point in our season, and these girls have certainly risen to the challenge.  With a few adjustments, the Bulldogs will be in a favorable spot for a return trip to State and possibly poised to bring home some hardware.  Congrats, Ladies…your hard work is showing! 

Go Dawgs!

8th place out of 17 teams

GIRLS GOLF UPDATE
Tuesday, March 28, 2017

The UMS-Wright girls golf team has stepped up their game!  The Bulldogs traveled to Pelham to play a 36-hole event at the prestigeous Greystone Country Club.  Day one was played on the Founders course where the team posted their second best score of the season (256) but only in the middle of the pack (8th of 15 teams).  Tough 7A competition only helps us get better!  After the 2nd round on the Legacy Course, the Bulldogs finished in 9th place but besting the defending 4A-5A state champs.  Success can be measured in lots of ways!

The next road trip took the team to the Auburn Invitational and the Robert Trent Jones Grand National Course in Opelika, which will also be the sight of this year's AHSAA State Golf Championship.  While our scores were not what we had hoped for, the opportunity to play this course was invaluable.  Again...small successes.

Stay tuned for more golf news and updates!

Go Dawgs!

JV Girls Golf Battle Wind and Weather
Wednesday, March 08, 2017

The JV girls golf team opened their 2017 season under heavy cloud cover and gusty winds...tough conditions for golfers everywhere!  The threat of rain became a reality as the first group of golfers finished the round, leaving the rest of the field scattered about the 9-hole course.

In the end, the Bulldogs fell to McT and St. Paul's by more strokes than we'd like.  Congrats to Abigail Swain, K_ierra Giles, Lizzie Hand, and Carolina Grace Taylor for hanging tough in true Bulldog fashion.

GIRLS GOLF TAKES MARDI GRAS MADNESS TITLE
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

The girls golf team competed in the McGill-Toolen invitational Mardi Gras Madness tournament on February 27-28 at TimberCreek Golf Club.

The threat of rain and thunder was certainly a factor on Monday,  but only a few sprinkles managed to make it to the ground. Temperatures dropped quickly, though, late in the day and made for a chilly finish. The Bulldogs posted a 10-stroke deficit to McT's strong 7A team.

What a difference a day makes!  Warm temps, gusty winds and partly cloudy skies sparked the Bulldogs to finish 6 strokes ahead and bring home the title in their first tournament outting.

Lauren Gilchrist (87, 77) was the team's low scorer, followed by Lauren Kendall Graham (87, 86), Maizie Summersell (96, 87) and Brooke Swain (90, 94).  

The Bulldogs will tee it up again at 1:00 p.m. on March 9 at Springhill Golf Course.  Hope to see you there!

Go Dawgs!

GIRLS OPEN 2017 GOLF SEASON
Thursday, February 23, 2017

The UMS-Wright girls golf team traveled to Fairhope on Wednesday to take on Bayside, Fairhope, and St. Paul's in an 18-hole event.  After a rainy Tuesday, the course was a little soggy, but playable.  Lift, clean and place rules were in effect and the Bulldogs teed off at 1:30 under partly cloudy skies with a steady northerly breeze.  

The first three groups would finish in plenty of time, while darkness limited play for the final six golfers.  Host, Bayside, determined that scores would be counted on the 15 holes finished by the last group which gave the Bulldogs a 2nd place (223) spot behind a solid Fairhope team.  The Pirates posted a team score of 207 behind the outstanding play of senior, Virginia Green.  Bayside finished 3rd (236) and St. Paul's 4th (275).

The varsity team will be back in action next Monday at TimberCreek for the Mardi Gras Madness invitational.
