The James Monroe High School Lady Mavs golf team completed its second season and continues to flourish. This year’s intrepid golfers were Madison Noonkester, Kinleigh Bradley, and Katelin Fullen. This year the team participated in a series of local matches and the West Virginia High School Girl’s Invitational Golf Tournament at Mingo Bottom Golf Course in Wirt County. In another first, Kinleigh Bradley qualified for and competed in the Coalfield Conference Tournament at Glade Springs.
The Lady Mavs traveled to Wirt County to play in the West Virginia High School Girl’s Golf Tournament at Mingo Bottom Golf Course on Sept. 5. This tournament was an individual effort and included over 100 golfers from across the state competing in two divisions. On an extremely hot and humid day the Lady Mavs competed in the open division, with Kinleigh Bradley earning a 9th place finish.
At local matches the Lady Mavs repeatedly placed in the top three, which is impressive for a young team. With a respectable average over the course of the season Kinleigh Bradley qualified for the Coalfield Conference Tournament at Glade Springs on Sept. 18, finishing in the middle of the field.
We look forward to more progress with the Lady Mavs and are always looking for additional players. The team’s success thus far would not be possible without the assistance of Fountain Springs Golf Course, Sim Golf in Peterstown, and Sports of Monroe.

Golf is a lifetime activity that develops mental focus and contributes to a healthy, active lifestyle.
