The Coffee County Middle School and Westwood Middle School golf teams opened up their 2017 season on Tuesday in Shelbyville taking on Liberty and Harris in a pair of matches featuring a new format this season. Each team will match up in 2 person teams playing 9 holes. Each 3 holes of the 9 hole match is contested as a single point or “flag”. The team that wins the majority of the holes in each 3 hole subset, claims a point. Should the 2 teams tie for the 3 holes, then each team is awarded half a flag. .
Westwood squared off against Harris and dropped a 9½ to 2½ decision. The team of Christopher Robinson and Gavin Prater captured a half point. The team of Elizabeth Brown and Brayden Gray captured ½ point and the team of Macie Lawrence and Lara Bell captured 1½ points.
Coffee County dropped an 11 to 1 decision to Liberty. The team of Logan Hale and Keegan Grubbs captured a half point while the team of Olivia Lewis and Natalie Shawl captured another ½ point.
Westwood and Coffee County will return to the links on Monday when they play host to Liberty and Harris at Willowbrook. That match will tee off at 4 PM.
