Sequoyah participated in the 10th Annual Grizzly Classic hosted by Creekview HS at Woodmont Saturday. For the first time this season the team was presented a day of great weather for golf. Only 4 members of the team were available as 6 were traveling over the spring break. Fortunately the top four golfers were playing, and they were going up against some of the best teams in the state. Captains Hunter Clay and Thomas Brumbeloe competed in separate groups with each containing a Cherokee All-County Team member from 2017 – both from Creekview. Brumbeloe also had in his group Preston Topper, a University of Georgia commit from Johns Creek.
None of the four Chiefs started the day scoring well, and they were all challenged to overcome adversities. It was promising that all four were able to improve from the front nine to the back nine with improvements of 6 to 9 strokes each. However, the holes they had dug for themselves on their first nines were too deep to be anywhere near their targeted team score of 310-320. Only Brumbeloe shot below his season average. Having two bad breaks on the front nine, he settled into some great golf and shot 2 under par on the back nine for a 75.
The team is off for spring break week and takes on rival Cherokee at the Canton Golf Club on Monday April 9 at 4:00.
