Pritchett plays for state title
The Marshall Academy golf team improved and gained a lot of experience this season.
“This very young team cannot hang their heads, even if they did not qualify for the state tournament” coach Clay Pritchett said.
With everything on the line in the Patriots’ last tournament of the year, they shot their lowest score of the year, a 359, to put them in the North Half Tournament.
Zack Pritchett, Hank Owens, Tyler Berry, Michael Thompson and Josh Mask all battled hard all year to qualify.
“Playing in that big of a tournament gave these younger players a great deal of experience to carry them into next year,” Coach Pritchett said. “With hard work in the offseason, this group can have a state-qualifying team next year.”
One Patriot, Zack Pritchett, achieved many highlights this year. The sophomore won four of seven tournaments and claimed the North Half Tournament individual trophy for the third year in a row. He fired a low score of 2 under par at the Country Club of Oxford on a very windy day. Pritchett’s score of 70 earned him a chance to play for a state title this week (May 3) at The Refuge in Jackson.
His round of 70 was his lowest score this year. He shot a 71 at Dogwoods, while never shooting higher than a 76. Pritchett also fired a 32 in a nine-hole tournament – 4 under par.
“Good things are ahead for this golf team with dedication and practice,” the coach said.
