The Franklin County boys' and girls' golf teams celebrated their 2016 seasons at St. James Bay's Crooked River Grill on Friday night, Dec. 2.
The teams, coaches and family members, were treated to outstanding cuisine by chef Nola Tolbert.
Coaches David Walker, Scott Collins and Robbie Johnson presented awards and recognized all of the players individually.
The boys' team finished a successful, inaugural season and the girls completed their fourth year of competition, which ended at the state finals in Howey-in-the-Hills near Orlando.
A young team, with no seniors this past season, the boys squad included sixth grader Justus Jones, eighth grader Eli Whaley, freshmen Cale Barber, Tommy Gragg, Schuyler Donahoe, Jesse Ray and Tyler Rainwater, and junior Chance White
Jones received a trophy for the lowest boys' scoring average of 41.8, awhile Lady Hawk senior Megan Collins received the same award for the girls' side as she averaged 40.9.
In addition to Collins, the Lady Seahawks squad this past season included junior Harper Westbrook, sophomores Melanie Collins and Alexus Johnson, eighth grader Hollie Larkin and seventh grader Ali Patrick.
"Both teams had very successful seasons and we are fortunate to have so much parental support,” said Franklin County Schools Athletic Director Scott Collins. “We are all also grateful to the good folks at St. James that go out of their way every year to give us a place to hone our skills and make us feel welcome.”
