Strong field expected at ‘Lady Cat’ tourney

Dalton High School’s annual Lady Catamount Invitational returns to the Dalton Golf and Country Club with a 15-team field, an increase from last year’s tournament.

A shotgun start is scheduled for 2 p.m., and Dalton coach Nancy Hallsworth is hoping this year’s event stays clear of weather trouble, which cut last year’s 10-team tournament short.

North Murray, Northwest Whitfield and Southeast Whitfield join Dalton as the other local teams in the field. Ola, which won last year’s team championship, returns to defend its title. Also competing are Brookwood, Calhoun, Cartersville, Greater Atlanta Christian, Heritage-Cat-oosa, North Oconee, Peachtree Ridge, Ringgold, White County and Woodward Academy.

“We’ve got a real good field, probably one of the most competitive we’ve had in many years,” Hallsworth said. “It’s probably because we have so many low-scoring players coming.”

    AUGUSTA — Sinatra is gone, but we still have his music. The same is true with Nat King Cole and Elvis. It would be nice to hear them in concert again, however. With Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, we are not sure what it will be like when they are no longer the honorary starters at the Masters.

  • Loran Smith: Meeting old friends under the big oak a tradition, too

    The first time I was in a train station in Great Britain and saw a sign that read, “Meeting Place,” it brought me to a pause. How simple, how functional was this sign? In small towns it is not a problem to meet someone at Sheppard’s Filling Station or at the fireplug across the street from the Baptist church, but at a busy venue — like European train stations — there is nothing more sensible than meeting at the “Meeting Place.”
