Jim Haynie, veteran high school coach, says he thinks his team has the potential to go far this season. Haynie said that “Canton should be our toughest competition.”

With 11 boys and five girls, the BHS Golf Team was the district runner-up last year.

In looking at his players, Haynie said, “Joey Boyd and Tucker Thomison are both seniors and are my key players.”

On the girl’s side, Haynie looks to Kassidy Grace, who was a regional qualifier last year, and newcomers, Sarah McBride and Madison Bardin, to show some promise. “And Katie Knabel is very consistent.”

Golf is “very time-consuming. You have to put your heart and a lot of time in it,” Hayne said. “It is not like other sports.”

“In golf, you have to have a good work ethic, and be honest,” he added.

Matches for the golf team include Feb.24-25 against Lindale, Feb. 28 against Harmony, March 6 against Quitman, March 13 against Martin’s Mill, March 20 against Canton, against Edgewood on March 27 and district will be April 3 and April 10. Regionals will be on April 24-25. State will be May 22-23.
