Four sophomores, a freshman and a seventh-grader competed on Georgetown High School’s golf team this season. Sophomore Evan Runion competed for a Lower State title.
Georgetown High School's boy's golf team wrapped up the season 6-8.
"We are still a very young team, but the tenacity these boys bring to the course each and every day never ceases to impress me," said coach Tripp Hartley. "They not only want to win but they are competitive against each other which is what it takes to be the best in golf."
This year's team members were: sophomores Evan Runion, Carter Weaver, Doc Young and Brandon Cribb, freshman Will Marlowe, and seventh-grader Patrick Walsh.
The boys beat Johnsonville, Andrews and Conway, and lost to Myrtle Beach, Socastee, St. James and North Myrtle.
Runion, who was named the team's most valuable player, qualified for the regional tournament at Black Bear Golf Club in Longs and for the Lower State tournament at International Club in Murrells Inlet.
"Evan has only been playing golf for a little under two years and in that time he has worked extremely hard to get himself to the No. 1 position on the golf team," Hartley said. "He focuses on his game, he works at it daily, and he is determined to be the best."
"It was great experience," Runion said. "I was playing against three seniors, all who have scholarships to college next year. Even though I did not play my best, I now know what to expect and will be ready for next year."
