According to Berryville golf coach Brent Compton this was the best girl’s golf finish in school history and went on to say that McKayla has worked hard to achieve her goals this year and couldn’t be more proud of her and her efforts as she represents what a Bobcat student athlete is all about. Meghan Lindsey from Magnolia was the individual 4A state champion and the Nashville girl’s golf team took the 4A state team championship. The Harrison Lady Goblins took the 4A state runner up trophy with team scores that included; Tia Norcross 102, Halle Marseilles 107, Riley Richards 109, Ella Spry 113.
