The Leopard ladies won the District 10 5A Championship in a big way April 1st and 2nd. The girls set a new school record, again. The team total 684 over the two days is a school record, beating the 691 mark they set earlier this spring. This also our largest margin of victory, 137 shots. We played our best golf this year. The younger ladies are truly becoming good players. Coach Moseley and Coach Carroll are so proud of the way they are playing. They have worked hard, and it is paying off in a big way.
Day one the girls were confident and great. There was no doubt we were the best team there. The team total 342 saw the girls with a big 72 shot lead.
