Lawrence Co. Golf Coach Brian Akers
“… All of the boys have put in a lot of hard work both at the course during team practice time and on their own. We have really been playing well these last few weeks and hope to carry it over to the Regional tournament in two weeks at Indian Creek in Mt Sterling.” So proud of these guys as they battled the course and windy conditions all day and played some great golf. Hunter continued his steady play and Apencer and Noah turned in personal bests on a very long Hidden Cove golf course.” Spencer started playing golf as a Freshman and has steadily improved each season. His career match record stands at 23 wins and 9 losses.” Very proud of all of these young men and all of the hard work that they have put in on the course as well as in the classroom. They have represented the LC school system with the utmost integrity and class both on and off the course.”
