Cothran and Mooney helped the Senators win a second straight AISA Golf championship, coached by Wagoner. The first-place prize of $90 went to Wagoner because Cothran and Mooney are amateurs.

“I hit the ball really well today,” Cothran said. “I left a few balls out there, but overall I played great. It showed I have the potential to do well.”

Proceeds from the tournament goes to the Senators’ upcoming baseball team beach trip and to the squad for next season.

Morgan Academy baseball coach Stephen Clements thanked the businesses and parents for competing in the tournament.

“I appreciate the support for the baseball team,” Clements said. “There’s no way we could’ve accomplished anything without your support.”

Pearce Catfish, Turner Chevrolet, Dixie Country 98.5 FM and 100.1 FM, Tucker Family Dentistry, Julie R. Sams Family Dentistry and Kix Country 101.5 FM were the tournament sponsors.
