Wildcats golf team
begins new season
By KEVIN BURMEISTER, OCN staff
First-year coach of the Livingston Academy golf team, Elizabeth
Woodard, possesses lofty goals for her young team, but believes
they have what it takes to rise to the peak of their district.
ÒIÕd like to see us win the district," she said, Òand IÕd
like to see also some of our kids get to the regional tournament
and place well, and maybe some of them go on to the state."
These high aspirations seem to place a substantial amount of weight
squarely on the shoulders of the LA freshmen and sophomores who
make up 11 of the 14 members of the boys team. Woodard believes
her golf experience will help make up for the teamÕs overall youth.
ÒIÕve been playing golf all of my life," Woodard said. ÒSo
IÕm not concerned with that. I know what it takes to get better
and IÕm going to show these guys what it takes."
This seasonÕs boys golf squad consists of a lone senior, Charles
Hammer, and juniors Clint Peterman and Eddie Sells.
The Wildcats fountain of youth is fueled by sophomores Westley
Burnett, Josh Crawford, Johnny Cyrus, Jeremy Sells, and Brad West.
Also expected to contribute to the LA team are freshmen Rex Dale,
Kris Gore, Brandon Matthews, Justin Monday, Jonathon McGill, and
At this point, only one girl is slated to play with the Cats,
sophomore Brittany Meredith.
The Wildcats won their first scrimmage contest with gusto, taking
the match by 8 strokes. With the Wildcats players working hard on
improving their games, this pre-season victory could be an indicator
of future LA matches.
ÒI think itÕs highly possible," Woodard said. ÒIÕve got them
going through a golf routine. I donÕt know whether or not theyÕve
been doing that in past years, but IÕve got them working on their
short games and their chipping and putting, and stuff like that.
And if you can chip and putt, you can do a lot."
The Livingston Academy golf season began Tuesday, August 13 with
a match against Pickett County and Monterey.
