The Dawson County varsity golf teams both posted wins last week against longtime rivals Lumpkin County at Chestatee Golf Course.

Junior Hunter Burt led the boys with a match best score of 37. Jackson Verhovan had a 48. Cullen Reed hit a 52 and Jared Posey ended with a 58.

"I am pleased with our progress and we are getting better every time out," said Frank Brown, boys' golf coach.

The girls came away with a two stroke win. Tatum Pruitt led the team with a 55 followed by Cydney Morgan at 56 and Alexis Mathison at a 60.

"Great effort by both teams yesterday," said girls' coach Wes Greer. "It is always a good day when you beat your rival, no matter what sport you play."

Both varsity teams face East Hall at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday at Chestatee Golf Club.
