     The Conway Golf Varsity Lady Cats finished their season as Central Conference Champions, and they went on to attend the Girls State Conference September 26-27th, and they were runner ups to Mount St. Mary by two strokes. Senior golfer, Brooklyn Worley played an instrumental role in the Lady Cats success this season. She described how they played in the face of adversity, “ When we were at Conference we were behind by 6 shots, but we came back and we won by 2 shots.” When we asked her what it takes to be successful in golf as both an individual and as a team she said, “ It takes a lot of work effort to perform well, golf is mostly you v. yourself, and your score matters the most and gets counted into the teams score. 

     The Lady Cats performed very well this season and although they didn’t win state they got really close. This will only fuel and motivate them for the next season, which is looking very promising. The Lady Cats are poised to have a very successful season next year and for the years to come. 

     Additionally, The Conway Varsity Golf Boys finished their season placing 8th at State, which was worse than their 3rd place finish at State last year. However, there were bright spots during the season as Junior Noah Ryan had a couple of outstanding performances one of the performances was at the Panther Invitational where he finished 1st on team, shot a 77 and finished 3rd overall. We asked him where the team played the best and he answered, State tournament was our best team performance because we all individually played well, and that gets added into the team’s overall score.” Additionally he described how to be successful as a team and as an individual, “ Individually you have to be focused, and confident, and as a team you have to trust teammates in their abilities.” 

     The Conway Varsity Golf Boys finished 8th at state and have declined since last year, but there seems to be hope if they can play with the same unity that they did at State this year. They look to bounce back again next season and to show their strengths and represent what it means to be a Wampus Cat.
