-Lumpkin golf takes down East Hall

The LCHS golf team continued to enjoy success on the links during the 2019 season when the Indians and Lady Indians defeated East Hall as the two region rivals met up for a round of golf at The Chimneys Golf Course in Winder, Ga. on Wednesday, April 10.

Led by Blake Barrett’s 42, the Indians put on a masterful display at The Chimneys to earn a 45-stroke victory over the Vikings.

Barrett displayed a strong tee shot combined with a solid short game to top the leaderboard for the Indians during the match.

The Wood twins, Cooper and Cannon Wood, kept their dominance on the golf course alive with both brothers shooting 45 during the event.

The Indians combined for a team score of 184, easily allowing them to take down the Vikings. East Hall’s golfers posted a team score of 229.

The Lady Indians also pulled out a lopsided victory in their match versus East Hall, earning a 36-stroke win.

Ashlyn Burch showed off her skills with a team low round of 47. Burch, who has led the team in most matches this season, has proven herself to be one of Lumpkin’s top golfer and should be a huge piece of the puzzle over the next couple season for the Lady Indians.

Isabel Davenport followed not far behind Burch with a score of 51. Davenport, who began playing golf last season, has improved by leaps and bounds since her freshman season with the team and has proven herself to be a bright spot for the future of the program.

The Lady Indians also received a strong performance from Alyssa Chambers at the event. Chambers recorded a score of 63 to help the Lady Indians record a team score of 161.

Lumpkin’s 161 was 36 strokes better than East Hall’s 197, allowing the Lady Indians to earn the dominant victory.

LCHS head golf coach Jeff Steele is pleased with what he has seen from his golfers so far this season and expects that each of his golfers should continue to improve as the season progresses.

The LCHS golf team will be back in action when it travels to take on region rival Dawson County at Chestatee Golf Course today, April 17.

Tee off is set for 4 p.m.

The Indians and Lady Indians will battle it out with East Hall and Pickens County at Achasta tomorrow, April 18. Tee off is set for 3:45 p.m.
