FRANKLIN – The CHS Lady Braves golf team took second place at The Golf Club at Mill Creek on Tuesday, Sept. 15 in a match against Franklin, Highlands, Rabun Gap-Nacoochee, and Murphy.  The top-three Lady Braves carded a 159 to finish two strokes behind Franklin (157).  Highlands finished third with a 173.  Rabun Gap-Nacoochee and Murphy didn’t have enough players to qualify as a team.  Murphy’s Ellie Martin finished atop the leaderboard by carding a 41.

“The competition has gotten a little stiffer,” related Lady Braves head coach Sharon Bradley.  “We have a girl from Rabun Gap-Nacoochee that is shooting in the 40’s and a girl from Murphy is playing well, so it’s putting a little pressure on our girls to play better.  They’ve been playing better since the competition has been a little tougher.”

Cherokee’s Tysha Sampson and Bree Stamper led the Lady Braves by carding a 52 and 53 respectively. Tika French finished close behind with a 54.   Other Cherokee scorers included: Jordan Maney (58), Blake Wachacha (59), and Tiarra Toineeta (61).
