Mabank girls win golf tournament
Boys take second

CANTON–The Mabank Lady Panther golf team won the Martin’s Mill golf tournament at Twin Lakes Golf Course near Canton March 12.
Lady Panther Raeleigh Smallwood placed third overall with a score of 102.
The Panther boys team took second place at the tournament behind Martin’s Mill.
Brandon Hatfield was third overall with an 83, and Stephen Caillet was fourth with an 83. The tie was broken with scorecard playoff.
“ Considering a course that most of our players had never played on, and it being so soaked, it was a pretty good showing,” Mabank head golf coach Jeff Lee said. “Twin Lake is a great course, but it is a challenging course. I am hoping these types of courses will prepare us for district in all the aspects of the game.”
Monday the Mabank boys will compete in Lindale at Hide-A-Way Lake.
The Lady Panthers will compete at Garden Valley in Lindale March 27.
