Boys Golf Wins Sectional Match to Advance to State; Girls’ Heidi Park Qualifies for State

AUGUSTA, Ga. – After finishing in the top-4 at the GHSA Area 1 Golf Match on Monday, April 22, the First Presbyterian Day School boys and girls golf teams needed just one more top-4 finish at Sectionals for a chance to play for a state championship.

The boys golf team did just that and beyond, winning he GHSA Sectional Match at Forest Hills on Monday, May 6, shooting a season-low 296 to earn an entry into the State Match.

The Vikings were led by senior Brooks Stroud, who fired a 71 (-1) in the 18-hole event. Senior Conner Albright finished with a 74 (+2), sophomore Brantley Wilson shot a 75 (+3) and sophomore Dalton Taylor signed his scorecard with a 76 (+5).

Freshman Charles Stroud completed the round with an 80 (+8) while senior Kaleb Fuller was in the clubhouse at +14 (86), respectively.

In the girls match across town at Goshen Plantation, the Lady Vikings competed in its sectional match for a chance to go to the state tournament.

FPD fell short of finishing in the top-4, but senior Heidi Park individually qualified for a chance to play in the State Match, shooting a 93 on the day.

The Viking golf teams will return to the links one final time this season, traveling to Savannah for the GHSA Class A State Tournament on Monday, May 20 at Savannah Quarters Country Club.
