SMS Golf Team Excels in Regional Tournament

The St. Mary’s School golf team competed in the Regional Tournament at Avalon Country Club on Monday, May 14th, concluding an exceptional year.
The Boys team tied for 1st during the District 1 Tournament at The Greens of Deerfield in LaFollette. They ultimately took 2nd place after losing on the third hole of a team playoff. The Girls team took 1st place overall – a first for any St. Mary’s Team. Wesley Alig took 1st place individually and Emmaline Estep took 3rd place individually.
The SMS girls team took 2nd in the Region 1 Tournament at Oak Ridge Country Club and advanced to State as a team – yet another first for any St. Mary’s team. Wes Alig and Hunter Hinton were in the top 5 boys for the tournament and qualified for State.
The St. Mary’s School Community continues to be grateful for the Oak Ridge Country Club and their staff for allowing the school to use the course as the SMS golf team home course for practices and matches as well as hosting the regional tournament.
