Region 7-4A girls golf: Lady Cats win fourth straight title; Southeast's Collins is medalist


Led by Mable McKone’s 88, Dalton’s girls put together a performance that was very even across the lineup, and that proved to be the difference. After the first three golfers came in for the Lady Cats, Northwest and Heritage — the top three teams in the region based on regular-season scoring — Dalton held a one-stroke lead over Northwest. That changed when freshman Carson Roberts finished with a 92 to swing the match solidly in favor of the Lady Cats.

“It was a big sigh of relief when that last score came in and we had a little more breathing room,” McKone said. “Carson has been a good player all year long, but this was her best round of the season and it couldn’t have come at a better time. We have been very fortunate to have four players who can all put up solid scoring.”

Roberts and McKone were joined by Ashleigh Peters, who shot a 93. Olga Fouche competed for the Lady Cats and finished with a 104.

“We have a very young team with a lot of talent that is only going to get better,” Hallsworth said.

Northwest Whitfield’s Marlee Bingham led the Lady Bruins with a 90, and she was joined in scoring by Alicia Cole (94) and Dallas Coker (102). Emilee McKinney (110) also competed for Northwest.

This is the second region title for Collins, who won the Region 7-3A title as a sophomore. She was joined in scoring by Bethany Reddix (110) and Hannah Dempsey (127). Tori Bailey (139) also competed for the Lady Raiders.

Cedartown and Pickens tied for fifth at 335, with LaFayette (373), River Ridge (377) and Gilmer (399) rounding out the field. Cedartown’s Megan Keith shot an 80 and advances straight to state as the lowest scoring golfer on a non-qualifying team.
