Georgia Northwestern Cats Continue Climb, Claim 7th In Maryville Invitational

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Georgia Northwestern’s intercollegiate golf program will see its first day of practice for its inaugural spring season tee off on January 15, 2014. The Bobcats finished off its second of two warm-up tournaments this past weekend as they clawed their way to a seventh place finish at the Maryville Invitational in Alcoa, Tn.

All eyes are on leading ball striker Brandon Parrish this week. The North Murray (GA) H.S. alum started the event strong with a team-low 76 in day one of the two-day event. However, the freshman Bobcat had to withdraw from the Green Meadow Country Club event in the closing round after injuring his hand attempting to strike a difficult shot near a tree root. No word on the extent of the injury at this time.

Fellow freshman Drew Tankersley, a Murray County (GA) H.S. grad, tried to pick up the slack by firing a 77 in day one and a 79 in day two. Adrian Petino (North Murray) shot an 80 and a 78. Shawn Welch (Dalton) gave the most consistent play for the Bobcats firing a pair of 83’s. Gavin Reeves (Heritage) locked in for an 82 and an 86.

In individual standings, Tankersley finished 15th (156) and Petino placed 19th (158) in the weekend tourney. Tennessee Wesleyan College out of Athens, Tn. took home the team championship.

With the initial spring schedule for the Georgia Northwestern golf program still being slated, two events are already in the books. The Cats will travel to Hattiesburg, Mississippi for the Carey Collegiate Classic on March 17-18, 2014. Also, Georgia Northwestern will make the short trip to the Bedwell Memorial Tournament in Rome, Georgia on April 15-16, 2014.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)
