The Bridge City girls' golf team has won the District 19-4A championship in back to back years. The Bridge City girls with a team score of 430 captured first place in this year's district tournament on Tuesday, March 26, at the Henry Homberg Municipal Golf Course in Beaumont after the competition was reduced to a one day event because of rain on Monday.

The five girls that competed for Bridge City were Ashley Hale, Heidi Broussard, Reece Molina, Kamryn Lumpkin, and Aubrey Carpenter. Hale a senior was the leader for the team shooting a round of 85 to grab the second place individual medal in the tournament.

Ashley Hale said later that her round started off a little rocky but she pulled it together starting on the back nine. "The things I capitalized on was my short game focusing on every chip and putt," Hale explained.

Despite struggling from the tee as she admitted, Ashley was impressed with her consistency on her approach shots hitting the greens in regulation or at least the front edge to setup easy pars. Hale added, "It was challenging at first to get a feel for the greens with some slow and some fast, however, I got a feel for them and started sinking putts."

The other Bridge City senior Heidi Broussard thought it was a beautiful day for golf on Tuesday despite Monday's rain. "It was really muddy, and I struggled getting loft with my clubs. I need to work on knowing my distance with my pitching wedge and not letting little mess ups get in my head," Broussard confessed.

Junior Reece Molina felt she could have played better, but she did have the longest drive for her group by at least a hundred yards. Molina indicated, "If I had played the back nine like I played the front I would have scored my lowest round ever."

Freshman Aubrey Carpenter said there were a lot of emotions for her. "Let's just say it was very nerve racking, exciting, and even annoying at some times. I really enjoyed the experience and loved working with my team," Carpenter replied.

Junior Kamryn Lumpkin was playing in her first district tournament as well. Lumpkin insisted, "Having my teammates by my side played a huge part in my score, and I can't wait to go to regionals with my team, and I know we will try our best."

Next up for Bridge City golf will be the Regionals in the middle of April. The girls from Bridge City will travel to Huntsville on April 17-18 for that tournament.
