L-E FRESHMAN KELLI MURPHY and her Demon teammates will play 36 holes today in the opening two rounds of the 54-hole 4A state championship tournament at the Furman Golf Club in Greenville.
It’s not often that a team gets a chance to exhale when competing for a berth in the state championship as compared to trying to secure a slot in the Upper State tournament. That just goes to show the strength of the golf teams in Region 4-4A. After narrowly making the field for last Monday’s 4A Upper State tourney, hosted by the Fox Run Country Club in Simpsonville, Lugoff-Elgin breezed into the 4A state event which begins its two-day, 54-hole run this morning at the Furman University Golf Club in Greenville. The Demons, in their first year in the state’s largest school ranks, had a much tougher go of it to get to the state championships than they did a year ago when they competed in Region 4-AAA. "There’s more competition in 4A," said L-E head coach Mike Robinson when asked to compare his teams’ journey to their fourth state tournament appearance in the last five years.
