Wins 1st Annual Rocky Creek
Middle School Invitational Tournament
Vidalia's J. R. Trippe Middle School Golf Team tallied a 329 to win the 1st Annual Rocky Creek Middle School Invitational on March 22. Low Medalist Bryson Davis shot an 80 to lead the team that included Avery Washinger (81), Luke McCall (83), Chase Edwards (85), Taylor McLellan (88), and Myles Lockley (90). Washinger tied for runner-up low medalist and McCall won the long drive competition. Layne Marie Carter of the J. R. Trippe Girl's Golf Team also participated in the event.
Thirty-seven golfers from four area schools J.R. Trippe Middle School, Appling County Middle School, Bacon County Middle School and Savannah Country Day competed in the invitational.
Bacon County finished second in the event with a four-score total of 346. Bacon County player Adam Grayson tied for runner-up low medalist with an 81.
Appling County player Tylan Kirkland won the closest to the pin competition.
"This is the first year we have held this tournament," said Trippe coach and tournament coordinator Bobby Stanley. "This was a great opportunity to let our players compete against schools that we do not normally have the chance to compete against. It gives them a taste of what they will see at the high school level."
The J. R. Trippe Golf Teams would like to thank the following sponsors and donors for helping us successfully host the 1st Annual Rocky Creek Middle School Invitational Golf Tournament. Without the support and generosity of these businesses this tournament would not have been possible.
