Edmonson Voice Sports:
The ECHS Golf Team traveled to Windridge Country Club in Owensboro on Wednesday to play in the All A State Qualifier tournament. Coach Kayla Meredith took her current top 5 players: Paige Wolfe, MaKayla Hogg, Hallie Cassady, Beth Elmore, and Abby Hogg.
The ladies were faced Owensboro Catholic, McLean County, and Hancock County. Leading the way for the Lady Cats were Paige Wolfe and MaKayla Hogg who were looking to repeat last year and qualify for state competition once more.
ECHS found themselves just two strokes out of first place as a team, finishing just behind Owensboro Catholic. Wolfe's score of 45 and Hogg's score of 47 were each good enough to send them back to the All A State for ECHS Lady Cat golf on September 11th.

The boys' Wildcat Lineup consisted of Andrew Talley, Jacob Williams, Levi Meredith, Cam Lich, and Evan Stice. ECHS faced teams from Trinity, Hancock, McLean, and Owensboro Catholic. It was back and forth most of the match with most of the pairings pretty even.
"EC would win a hole, then one of the others would win a hole," said coach Granville Meredith. "Levi Meredith may have had the shot of the day on his opening hole. He managed to play his ball through a small opening thru trees, over a pond, and up on the fringe. He then stepped up and chipped in for the birdie."
Andrew Talley was the low score for the Wildcats; however, he narrowly missed the cut to advance to state competition by only two strokes.
Coach Granville stated "We came up a little short, with the stress of what is going on with this Covid thing, but I am just glad we had the opportunity to play. We had to call off practice because of the heat indexand had to play without some players because of quarantines. I am proud of the young men I get to coach. They are working to get better and they give me their best each and every time out. We need to keep working and get ready for the region at the end of the month."
