Brown shot an 84 and Veal an 86 in the region tournament at Bartram Trail. Charli Justice shot 98 and Kaitlyn Hemstreet 103 for the Lady Hounds.
“The girls played great, qualifying as a team for state for the first time in Jones County history,” coach Jeff Williams said.
The girls’ state tournament will be Monday, May 19, at Jones Creek Golf Course in Augusta.
The Jones County boys will play this coming Monday in the Class AAAAA sectional at White Oak Golf Club in Newnan after finishing fourth in the region tournament.
“They added the sectional a couple of years ago. Instead of sending the top four teams from each region on to state, as they did in the past, now only the region winners get an automatic berth in state,” Williams said. “The next three teams from each region now go to the sectional, which then only lets the top teams from there go on to state.”
