TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THE A. C. FLORA HIGH SCHOOL VARSITY BOYS GOLF TEAM, COACHES, AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS FOR AN OUTSTANDING SEASON, AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM FOR WINNING THE 2013 CLASS AAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, the South Carolina Senate is pleased to learn that the members of the A. C. Flora High School varsity boys golf team of Richland County took top honors at the state competition on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at the Hackler Course on the campus of Coastal Carolina University; and
Whereas, in the process, the A. C. Flora Falcons reinforced its tradition of excellence in boys golf by claiming its fourth straight state title with a 315-309-624 score against Hilton Head High School. The victory marked the team's eighth state title in the past eleven years, all under the phenomenal leadership of Coach Harry Huntley; and
Whereas, the Falcons entered the final round two shots behind Hilton Head, built an eleven shot lead, and then withstood a comeback by Hilton Head to win by three strokes; and
Whereas, the team returned all five starters from its 2012 state championship team, including senior Wick Andrews, juniors Will Marter and Chase Fisher, sophomores Jennings Huntley and Michael Beal, and the Flora team was also bolstered by the addition of freshman Dwight Cauthen among others; and
Whereas, losing only one senior, the Falcons are poised to continue their winning ways with the aim of garnering their fifth consecutive state title in 2014; and
Whereas, in a sport that demands strategy and skill, Head Coach Huntley and his skilled assistant coaches, Wayne Marter and Craig Augenstein, capitalized on their own athletic ability and training to forge a championship team and teach these athletes lessons that will prove invaluable through life both on and off the course; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate appreciate the recognition that the A. C. Flora High School varsity golfers have brought to their school and their community and look to hear of their continued accomplishments in the seasons ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize and honor the A. C. Flora High School varsity boys golf team, coaches, and school officials for an outstanding season and congratulate them for winning the 2013 Class AAA State Championship title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Richard K. McClure and Coach Harry Huntley.
