The Liberty County Panthers and the Bradwell Tigers golf seasons teed off the last week of February and both have six matches under their belt.

LCHS Panthers
Panther golf coach Jerome Standard said his team is struggling, but does see improvements at each match.
"Ben Floyd is playing real well," he said. "Most of us would be satisfied with his playing, but he has set a higher standard for himself and we think he could do potentially better. For him a 40 or a 38 is not an acceptable score so his goal and our goal is for him to hit a lot lower than that."
Standard said the girls' score shave been up and down with Cassie Standard posting a 43 in one match, a possible school record.
"Our goals for her is 40," he said.
He said Megan Roe is coming on strong and he hopes to see her improver her game as well.
