With a second place finish in the Area 4-AAAAA Tournament, the Boys Golf Team qualified for the 2018 Class AAAAA State Tournament. In recent years, a few individual Raiders advanced to State; however, this is the first time since 2009 for the Raiders to advance as a team.
Planterra Ridge Golf Club in Peachtree City hosted the 2018 State Class AAAAA Boys Tournament on May 21 and 22.
The Raiders scored a 348 in the first round. Junior Connor Sewell led the team with an 81, Sophomore Phillip Clendenin followed with an 86, Sophomore Jacob Smith shot 90, Freshman Jonah Hirsch shot a 91, Sophomore Casey Scheele and Senior Eddie Cooper each shot 92. In the second round, the Raiders scored 357 to claim 12th place in the State.
Congratulations to the Raiders for a fine season. With only two seniors graduating this year, the future is bright for the young team.
