A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO CELEBRATE THE WAGENER-SALLEY HIGH SCHOOL GOLF TEAM, COACH, AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS FOR AN OUTSTANDING SHOWING AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM ON WINNING THE 2019 CLASS A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP.

Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to learn that the members of the Wagener-Salley High School golf team won the state championship on Monday, May 6, 2019, at Indian Trail Golf Club in Batesburg-Leesville; and

Whereas, still fairly a new program in just its third year of existence, this win marks the first state championship win for the War Eagles with a team total of 360 strokes; and

Whereas, led by Coach Parrish Deans, team members include Derek Poole, Lance Brown, Jordan Widener, Cameron Gunter, Bryson Shealey, Brett Yon, Trey Romines, Clayton Hooker, Blake Jeffcoat, and Eli Smith; and

Whereas, prior to the championship, the War Eagles were boosted by three All-State performances with Trey Romines in fourth place, Bryson Shealey in sixth, and Clayton Hooker in tenth, and they were joined on the All-Region team by Hooker and Jordan Widener; and

Whereas, the team has nearly doubled in size since 2017 and since their main course is Indian Trail, nearly twenty-five minutes away for most of the team, they sometimes are forced to practice on farmlands or hitting out in hay fields; and

Whereas, fully supported by their town, school, and families, these young athletes have most certainly proven their attitude and effort thus contributing to the team's victory; and

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives appreciate the pride and recognition that the Wagener-Salley High golfers have brought to their school and their community and look to hear of their continued achievements in the days to come. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, celebrate the Wagener-Salley High School golf team, coach, and school officials for an outstanding showing and congratulate them on winning the 2019 Class A State Championship.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Coach Parrish Deans.
