The Orangefield boys varsity golf team traveled to Chambers County on Wednesday, February 8, to compete in the Anahuac Athletic Booster Club Tournament. The inclement weather caused the tournament to be reduced to fifteen holes.
Orangefield finished in the top spot for the third straight week. The Bobcats had the top three medalist positions as brothers Lincoln Parks and Xander Parks took first and second places with teammate Alex Montz grabbing the third spot. Other members for the Orangefield varsity were seniors Reese Johnson and Ethan Gunter.
Bridge City entered two teams in the Anahuac tournament. The pair of Tyler Fults and Grant Hale led one Bridge City team while Brody Hairston and Kevin Cullums did well on the other team. Leaders for Little Cypress Mauriceville were Cohen Arney and Gavin Laffitte.
The Orangefield golfers will be taking off for a winter break. The Bobcats will return to action on Friday, February 24, at the Henry Homberg Golf Course in Beaumont.
The Lady Bobcat golf team finally got to play their first tournament Thursday, February 9, as they traveled to the Brentwood Country Club for the Vidor Invitational. The round was cut short because of course conditions from the heavy rains earlier in the week.
Orangefield team members Rylie Kethan, Lela Francis, Gracie Bickham, Emma Prouse, and Emma Perriotte all played well. Alyssa Wiley and Jordyn Rucker also competed as medalists. Kethan finished in the top eight of an impressively large field of girls.
The Orangefield Lady Bobcat golfers will not play again until May. Their next tournament will be May 20 at Wildwood.
