On Thursday, September 23, the DeKalb County High School Golf Team competed in the AA District 7 Golf Tournament held at Bear Trace Golf Course in Crossville, Tennessee.

On the girls side of the tournament, Alison Poss finished 3rd with a score of 84. Alison qualified for the AA Region 4 Tournament to be held on Monday, September 27, at Country Hills Golf Course. If she can finish in the top three out of 25 girls competing on Monday, she will earn a spot in the State Tournament.

“Alison started slow at the District Tournament with a 46 on the front, but she finished strong with a 38 on the back nine. Alison is awesome! She has such a bright future in golf. But, as great a golfer she is, she is an even better person. She has been great to work with this year and I feel like she has a really bright future” said DCHS Golf Coach, John Pryor.

Alison is the daughter of Tony Poss and Jeania Cawthorn.

In the boys tournament, DeKalb County High School was represented by Brayden Summers, Adan Ramirez, Ty Panker, Braden Sprague, and Owen Snipes. DeKalb County finished 6th out of seven teams and was led by sophomore Brayden Summers, who carded a 94. Brayden was just one shot off of qualifying for the Region Tournament. “The boys played hard, but the condition were tough and the competition tougher. Ty was my only senior competing, so there is always next year!” said Coach Pryor.

In the boys tournament, Cookeville finished 1st, Stone Memorial 2nd, and Livingston Academy 3rd. In the girls tournament, Cookeville finished 1st, Livingston Academy 2nd, and Cumberland County 3rd.
