After a nerve-wracking practice round at Turkey Mountain, the golf team felt prepared for the District tournament. The boys’ team had an outstanding 18 holes, with Trey DePreist shooting a 71 and becoming medalist of the tournament.  Dax Hurst, Andrew McFarlin and Miles Gifford all did equally well, winning the 2015 2A District golf tournament and advancing onto to the state tournament.

The girls’ golf team was determined to follow suit. In nine holes, Ashley Field shot a 48, winning medalist of the tournament. Jona Carmichael and Kensie Walker were not far behind, resulting in the Lady Mustangs winning the District tournament and advancing onto State. This is the first time the girls’ golf team has won the district tournament in four years. Therefore, this was a very proud moment for the girls.
