The Class AAA state playoffs in golf are still a month away, but one lone golfer from Adairsville will be working on her swing and putting during that time.

Lady Tiger Courtney Cochran qualified for state at the region tournament held in Calhoun.

Cochran shot a 93 to qualify for state as a low medalist, “but she usually shoots in the low 80s,” said Jo Fassnacht, Adairsville’s golf coach. “You can bet she will be spending a lot of time on the golf course, looking to improve her game before state begins.”

He said her score was the lowest for a team not advancing to state.

“Overall, we finished second in the region, but because the way the rules are we did not qualify for state as a team,” he said.

Adairsville’s girls’ golf team was comprised of Cochran, Tamera Johnson and Harley Chambers, all sophomores. As a team, the Lady Tigers compiled a record of 5-1 in a golf season shortened by inclement weather and spring break.

Playing in a postseason golf tournament is nothing new for Cochran, who won the middle school golf championship.

The Class AAA state playoffs are scheduled for May 20.
