The Mason County girls’ golf team missed the state tournament all together for the first time in nearly a decade last season.

It’s time to start a new run as Haley White and Charity Arn qualified for the state tournament on Wednesday at Longview Golf Course in Georgetown. Both shot an 86 at the 8th Region tournament to qualify as individuals, the Lady Royals finished third as a team behind Scott County and George Rogers Clark.

“Today was wet and windy, but the girls’ trusted the work they’ve put in,” Lady Royals coach Jason Butler said. “I’m proud of not only those two but all my kids today. They went out and competed despite the conditions that were played in today.”

The Lady Royals shot 401, Scott County claiming the regional title with a 321, George Rogers Clark behind them with a 360. Scott County’s Rylea Marcum took down the individual title with a 73, teammate Grace Lawler right behind her with a 74.

White and Arn tied for sixth individually with their 86’s. Macey Littleton fired a 96 and Morgan Parker came in with a 133 to round out the team scoring for the Lady Royals.

“Essentially, we all know that the golf course is won by putting. Your game can get away from you if you three-putt, four-putt and that’s something that we stayed away from today,” Butler said.

The next order of business for White and Arn will be at the Bowling Green Country Club for the state tournament on Tuesday and Wednesday. The two will get a practice round on Monday at the course and will play on Wednesday if they make the cut after the first day.

“I know they’ll want to go down there and have as good as a showing as they possibly can. Just try to keep consistency in their game. It’s a course that those two haven’t seen in a few years. Hopefully they go down there and play, use a little of their past and try to put it into play come Tuesday,” Butler said.
