Congratulations to our golf team for winning the GAPPS Region Tournament with a total team score of 333!
The Path To Victory
The Cornerstone Cougar Golf team was formed 5 years ago and in just a few years has developed into the league's premier golf program.
In 2019, the team won its first region title and lost the state championship by one single stroke. "We didn't even know we were in contention when we went to state that year, and to lose by one stroke was tough, to say the least," says coach Burger.
In March of 2020, the team set a school record low round score of 156 in its first and only match of the season cut short by the pandemic. With the team we had, we just knew we were going to win state last year. Unfortunately, COVID-19 hit our season like so many others and sadly ended a promising season.
At the beginning of the 2021 season, each teammate shared their main goal, and that was to win state and bring that trophy to Cornerstone. They have been undefeated in match play this season and won the region tournament for the second year in a row. Next stop to achieving their goal, the State Championship being held this Monday, May 3!
Special recognition to:
- JB Knight (9)with the lowest score for the tournament with a 75
- Cooper Goodson (7) with a score of 79 and made All-Region with the 3rd lowest score
We would like to extend a tremendous thank you to our Regional Tournament sponsors for helping make the event a success:
