The meet was held April 23 at Mirror Lake Golf Course in Villa Rica. Chapel Hill was the runner-up.
This accomplishment was one that head coach Lee Stanley was particularly proud of as all the county schools do not compete in the same region now.
“The best thing this season was keeping the county trophy. We don’t all play each other in the region so it’s good for bragging rights,” said Stanley.
From the county meet, the Alexander girls were the No. 1 region qualifiers, with senior Emily Cunningham and junior Amber Sanders moving on to compete.
Traveling to Bull Creek Golf Club in Columbus recently for the 5-AAAA Region Golf Championship, Stanley said his team did not play their best golf that day.
“Region was disappointing. No one played their best…They realigned the region this year so we played some new schools,” Stanley said.
After winning the region for the past two years, the Lady Cougars were unable to clinch the title this season as they finished fourth with Columbus taking the championship and Carrollton being the runner-up.
While Alexander did not return with the title, Stanley said Cunningham and Sanders have had a large impact on the team and the entire golf program.
“Without Emily and Amber that would not have happened. They’ve pretty much carried this program,” said Stanley in reference to the multiple county and region championships.
Overall, Stanley said this was a good season performance-wise and he said he’s pleased with how his players worked together to improve.
“We have a good mix of experienced golfers and new golfers. The veterans help the new ones and give them some tips…The girl golfers are just good kids,” Stanley said.
Another factor Stanley noted for the team this season was their new home course, St. Andrews Golf and Country Club in Winston.
“They’ve been really good to us. They’ve given us full access and really allowed us to use their course,” said Stanley.
