JHS golf team takes fifth in state
Brueshaber shooting 85, Individual State Runner-up
The Jefferson Lady Dragons golf team has a lot to be proud of, finishing fifth in state and having a team member finish as the Individual State Runner-up.
The State Tournament was in Waycross at The Lakes golf course. The team had shot a 190 for the tournament, which won the ladies fifth place, the highest Jefferson has ever finished in the state tournament.
“This is the highest finish for the Lady Dragons in school history for the state tournament,” said head golf coach Tom Parker. “I am so proud of the girls for the effort and desire they showed throughout the season.”
The team was lead by Jennifer Brueshaber who shot an 85 and was named the Individual State Runner-up.
According to Parker, this is the first time Brueshaber has played the game.
“Brueshaber only began playing golf just this season,” Parker said. “She picked the game up as an outlet for the springtime, and fell in love with the game. [Brueshaber] went from a non-player in the first couple of matches to winning region and finishing second in the state.”
The only senior on the team, Kimberlee Tolbert, ended her high school career with the state finish.
Tolbert shot 105, Kara Perry shot 123, Rebekah Branch shot 107, and Brueshaber shot 85, giving the Lady Dragons a total of 190.
“We had only one person returning to the team, Tolbert,” said Parker. “Therefore, I did set our goals beyond what I thought we could accomplish. [The team] exceeded everything and then some. The best part is they are all coming back next year except for Tolbert who is the only senior. The team will definitely miss her leadership, however I believe she has done a great job of passing on the tradition of hard work to her teammates.”
Next year Jefferson moves into Region 8 AA and Parker said that the team will be looking to continue their success of four straight region titles and two top 10 state finishes.
Brueshaber will lead the team next year, and according to Parker, will be supported by Rebecca Soldwish, Kaley Valezquez, Rebekah Branch, Kara Perry, and Summer Bartek.
