MOULTRIE -- Like the rest of the field in the 36-hole Class AAAAA golf tournament at the Oleander Golf Course on Jekyll Island on Monday, the Colquitt County golf teams could not make a run at the defending state champions.

The Glynn Academy boys and girls golf teams repeated their championships of a year ago.

The scores the Terrors and Lady Terrors put up were not as impressive as last year's, but they were plenty low enough to win.

The Glynn Academy boys shot a 292-287 for a 579, the second-lowest score ever turned in the state's largest classification's tournament.

The record was set last year when the Terrors shot a 569, besting the previous record of 580 set by the 2000 Glynn Academy team.

Glynn Academy has now won 12 state championships and has finished worse than fourth just once since 1977.

Northview was second with a 595.

Colquitt County shot a 327-313 for a 640.

Tift County and the Packers represented Region 1-AAAAA in the tournament. The Blue Devils, the region 1-AAAAA tournament champion, shot a 315-314 for a 629 to finish eighth.

The Packers were in 10th place after the first 18 holes of the tournament, which included 16 teams.

Sophomore Aaron Elrod turned in the Packers best rounds of the day, a pair of 77s for a 154.

Josh Dale had a 79-77 for a 156. Matt Smith followed a first-round 82 with a 79.

Greg Johnson had an 89-80.

"We played better in the afternoon," Colquitt County coach Donald Dale said. "But nobody played as well as they can play.

"Everybody had some large-number holes."

Dale said the Oleander course was "in terrible condition."

Glynn Academy's Chris Johnson was the low medalist with a 69-70 for a 139.

The Glynn Academy girls shot a 150, 10 shots off the score they posted last year, but still good enough to beat Harrison by 10 shots. The Region 7-AAAAA champion Northview High girls were third with a 161.

East Coweta's Katelyn Stanier was the low medalist with a 71.

Colquitt County's two-member girls team finished 13th.

Lindsay Hargrove shot a 43-48 for a 91. Kelsey Croyle had a 116.
