Girls Golf Ends

Destin Schroeder, Writer

Another Fall sport has officially wrapped up as girls golf season ended on October 7, with only one MHS golfer advancing to sectionals on October 14. Betsy Whitehurst, sophomore, was the lone girl to make it to sectionals from the team.

“I felt like it was a really good season. I had a really nice time and I’m just thankful for everyone who supported me and got me to the point where I got,” said Whitehurst. 

With this season ending, this wraps up Whitehurst’s second season on the girls golf team for MHS. 

She plans on playing again next year and some of her goals include, “Break a hundred and not three-putt.” 

Although this season ending opens up a bright future for some, other members of the golf team will face new challenges in life after graduation. Senior golfer Emily Perkins played her last match as a member of the MHS team at Districts on October 7.

“I’ve learned patience, what it means to be a good teammate, and that you have to work hard for what you want…I cried a lot. A little because I was playing so bad, but mainly because I knew I was gonna miss the sport.” said Perkins. 

Perkins has been a member of the MHS girls golf team since her freshman year.

“I wasn’t super sure if I would like it or not. But my dad pushed me to do it, and I’m so glad that he did. I stuck with it all four years,” said Perkins. 

The girls golf team is led by Cheratin Hunter. She has been coaching the team for four years now and hopes to coach until she retires. 

I am very pleased with the teams performance this season.  We had 4 girls shoot their personal best and that is always a win for a season.  We also had Besty Whitehurst advance to sectionals and represent us very well!” said Hunter.

“What I will miss most about our seniors is that they were my first group of Freshman when I started coaching.  They have been with me from the start and that is always special. They have been great leaders and set great examples for the underclassmen.” said Hunter.
