Braves’ golf coach Tony Wagoner was happy with his team’s season, but wishes that the player that had been their no. 2 golfer had not left the team. That happened weeks before the Southern Athletic Conference meet. The loss of the no. 2 golfer also kept Borden lower in the sectional at Valley View than they might have been otherwise.
