Ardmore’s golf team qualified for its second consecutive state tournament by finishing second in a section tournament at Silver Lakes in Gadsden Monday.
In pouring rain, Ardmore shot a 335 as a team to finish second behind Guntersville, which won the section by shooting 310.
Ardmore was led once again by junior Lee Hodges, who was the low medalist with a score of 66. The next closest golfer to Hodges shot a 75.
“If it would have been anywhere else than a Robert Trent Jones course, we would have probably been postponed,” said Ardmore golf coach Jon South.
Also contributing to the win for Ardmore were Andrew Eakes (86), Ty Beck (89) and Zac Garner (94).
Ardmore will compete in the state golf tournament May 13-14 at The Shoals Golf Course in Muscle Shoals.
