     Nine holes into the regional golf championships, Grant County coach Marcus Camacho must have felt like he was trapped in a horrible nightmare with his team struggling, despite playing on its home course.

    But the Lady Braves rebounded on the back nine with some of their
    best golf of the season to finish regional runners up and earn a spot in the state golf championships to be held this week in Bowling Green.


    The Williamstown cross country team hosted their annual invitational on Saturday. Twenty-three schools attended, with over 500 athletes competing, including students in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade. Races began at 9:00 a.m. and continued throughout the day, with rain in the afternoon causing the primary girls’ and boys’ races to be combined.

    Despite failing to reach their ultimate goal of earning a spot in the state tournament, the Grant County Braves ended the 2013 golf season this week with heads held high after completing one of the most successful seasons in recent memory.
    Grant County shot an above-average 326 at Monday’s regional championships held at the A.J. Jolly Golf Course in Alexandria, finishing well off the lead and out of contention for a spot as a team in the state championships. The Braves had the same luck with no individuals scoring high enough to advance past regionals.

    Playing on their home course for the Tom Johnson Classic, Grant County girls’ golf coach Marcus Camacho expected his team to shine. So needless to say, the Lady Braves’ fourth place finish was not something he rushed home to tell his friends and family about.

    Grant County’s final score of 361 was just one stroke from second place, putting the Lady Braves in a third-place tie with Villa Madonna, a spot they lost in a scorecard playoff to officially finish fourth overall in the team standings.

    “The most exciting part of the game for me was our big volleys that we had, as well as picking up the tips – it was really fun and intense and everyone was yelling,” Hall said.
