Elizabethton’s Schaff qualifies for state

Elizabethton’s Christopher Schaff punched his ticket to the 2015 TSSAA Golf State Championship on Monday afternoon.

The junior fired an impressive 74 to earn top individual honors at the Elizabethton Golf Course in the Region 1 A/AA tournament.

Hampton’s Nathan Norris and Happy Valley’s Nathan Kyte narrowly missed qualifying as individuals on the guys’ side.

On the girls’ side, Hampton saw Hannah Brummitt and Savanna Weddle come up short in their quest for state, while Elizabethton’s Bailey Montgomery and Happy Valley’s Lauren Cline and Hannah Younce had strong rounds but came up short of qualifying for the state tournament.

Schaff will compete at the A/AA State Tournament at WillowBrook Golf Club in Manchester next week.
