FLEMING ISLAND - Fleming Island High’s girls golf team, led by sophomore Alyzabeth Morgan, finished off a tri-team match win over Keystone Heights and Middleburg with the Golden Eagles’ ace facing off with two potential state tournament candidates.
Morgan, who narrowly missed her state tournament bid last year, has been on fire for most of the 2022 season with a handful of sub-40 stroke matches under her belt.
On Monday, at Fleming Island Golf Club, Morgan had the company of Keystone Heights High senior Candace Jackson, sister to Class 1A tournament veteran Camille Jackson, and Middleburg High’s junior Neva Winslow, who has put together a solid season of finishes that gives Bronco coach Daniel Pearce optimism for her end-of-season potential.
Fleming Island won the tri-match with a decisive 176 to 232 score over Keystone Heights with Middleburg third at 245.
Morgan took an early lead on the trio with a final 39 with Jackson third at 43 behind Fleming Island sophomore Chloe Blanc who shot a 42. Winslow was two strokes off Jackson with a 45 for fourth with Fleming Island junior Kalia Polete fifth with a 46. Morgan efficiently stayed on par for the first seven holes to keep an early lead in tact, but bogied her eighth and ninth holes give her opposition a bit of optimism. Jackson fell behind with two early bogies, a par then a double bogie to allow Morgan to gap the field.
Winslow scored the lone birdie of the trio on the par five fifth hole, but went seven on the par four sixth to lose that momentum gain.
