On Monday and Tuesday of last week, the Toombs County High School men’s golf team showcased their skills at the prestigious 48th Larry Gaither Golf Invitational in Columbus, Georgia. This event, formerly known as the Hardaway Invitational, holds the distinction of being the second longest-running high school golf tournament in the United States.

The Bulldogs delivered an impressive performance during the 36-hole event, recording consecutive seasonlow team scores. On Monday, the team notched a combined score of 333, with sophomore Vick Moore leading the charge by posting a personal season-low of 76. He was well-supported by Clay Conner with an 82, Noah Anken scoring 85, and Drew Woodruff, who completed the round with a 90. The team improved further on Tuesday, tallying a combined score of 328. Vick Moore continued his strong play with a 78, followed by Drew Woodruff’s 81, Clay Conner’s 84, and Noah Anken matching his previous day’s score of 85.

On Thursday of last week, the Bulldogs were at Brazell's Creek to take on Vidalia High School and West Laurens. The Bulldogs shot a team score of 167, behind VHS at 154, and West Laurens with a 159. The Lady Bulldogs finished with a score of 110 in third place behind West Laurens 89, and Vidalia's 109.
