Season Recap: Golf
In a season that opened a new era for Tallulah Falls golf, both the girls and boys teams showed tremendous growth from start to finish. In coach Hannah Satterfield's first season as the head coach, the girls and boys showed what they are capable of, as well as how their future success is imminent.
The Lady Indians, coming off a Class 1A Private State Runner-Up finish in 2021, graduated phenoms Brinson Hall (Troy University) and Maggie Jackson (Wofford). Hannah Lundy, a junior, was the lone player returning from last year. She took big strides in her game in 2022, and often was the team's low medalist. She and freshman Mallory Higgins each had three low medalist performances across the team's 14 matches.
The Lady Indians secured seven team wins, and Madeline Martin, also a freshman, was a one-time low medalist. TFS secured a fourth place finish at the Area Tournament, just one spot shy of a state playoff appearance. The team consists of a freshmen quarter (Ella Akers, Reagan Duncan, Higgins, Martin) and Lundy, which sets up for a bright future.
The Indians consistently showed the ability to improve and put up new personal bests, both as a team and individually. Two-time overall low medalist Canon Brooks saved his best for last, firing an 84 (and nearly was sub-80) in the Area Tournament. He was close to securing an individual state appearance.
Freshman Jason Bard also improved throughout the season, carding a personal best 49 (9 holes) in the final regular season match. Brooks also in the same match put up a personal best of 41, which is six strokes off the school record set in 2017 by Michael Weidner. In the final regular season match against Rabun County, it was the first time the boys had a pair of sub-50 scorers, and the entire team put up a season best with a 16-stroke improvement.
Juniors Brooks and Henry Bowman, along with freshmen Bard and Jedd Thomas, will headline a group that has some solid up-and-coming golfers from the middle school level.
