Season Recap: Golf
Expectations have long been high for the Lady Indians golf team, especially after a State Runner-Up finish just two years ago. After missing out on the tournament last season, long-time TFS golfer Hannah Lundy made sure her final season would end with a bang. To that end, the lone girls senior showed veteran leadership in propelling the Lady Indians to a top-5 finish at state and an Area Runner-Up finish as well.
The boys were often guided by senior Canon Brooks, who lifted the Indians to unprecedented heights that included an Area Runner-Up finish and the first-ever state berth as a full team. Once there, Brooks and company came in 11th overall in a solid effort.
The Indians had yet to qualify for state as a team, though Michael Weidner ('17) went to state after winning an area title his senior year. Even that season, TFS came in 7th in the area, which still was the best finish in history until this version came in second. That carried a state qualification, and Brooks led the efforts with a 39th-place finish at state. Fellow senior Henry Bowman (63rd at state) was reliable, as was sophomore Will Greene (46th) and freshman Tate Turpin (54th). Sophomore Jedd Thomas (63rd) and freshman Hunter Bel (72nd) are part of the future core as well, as too are freshmen Kalvin Ngov and Jack Thompson. Overall, the boys won seven team matches, and recorded six low medalist honors. Brooks was the low medalist three times, and once each for Turpin, Greene, and Bowman.
The Lady Indians, meanwhile, had finished in the top-5 at state three times before. Missing out last year with a very young team fueled their desire this time around. With the senior leadership of Lundy and the consistent, low medalist play of sophomore Mallory Higgins, the Lady Indians came in 5th at state. Lundy was 10th individually with Higgins right behind at 13th. Sophomores Raegan Duncan and Madeline Martin were 29th and 35th, respectively. The girls won six matches this season as a team, and Higgins was a 5-time low medalist with Lundy garnering a pair of low medalist honors. TFS features the four sophomores - including Ella Akers, who will build off this year's fantastic campaign.
