Livingston Academy recently played in the Keith Maxwell Invitational Tournament against many opponents.

The boys team came in third with a score of 351 behind Cookeville (316) and Warren County (349). Hayden Ledbetter led LA with a score of 77. Bryson Fletcher followed with an 83, Teddy Tudhope 95, and Tayshawn Hayes 96.

Head coach Buddy Sells stated, “The team played really well. They did a good job at adjusting to the different types of playability on the course.”

Bryson Fletcher faced a penalty of two strokes when his ball went into another fairway. Another player mistakenly thought it was his ball and continued to play with it. This caused the penalty against Fletcher.

Coach Sells stated, “Somebody else on a different hole accidentally played your ball, that’s not something that’s going to happen everyday. It’s kind of an odd thing to happen.”

The girls team finished fourth with a score of 185 behind Tullahoma (157), Cookeville (169), and Lincoln County (175). Halle Ledbetter led with a 92 and Cora Duke followed with a 93.

“We just want to battle and claw our way up to competing for that first place in the district,” Sells shared.

The LA golf team shared their appreciation for everyone in the community who help make it possible for them to be able to play.

The team will play today, Tuesday, Sept. 14 at Sparta.
