A streak of State Championships two decades ago earned these three golf teams a place in the Tift County Athletic Hall of Fame this past weekend. There aren't many pictures of those days; it's hard to fathom that we didn't even have a home computer then! Still, there are a few...
|Coach Patton and his junior golf team, some time in the early 90s.|
Worth is on the front row, second from the left.
|My husband is a happy coach after |
their first State Championship in 1995!
|Group shot after the second State Championship in 1996|
Apparently 1997 is when I got an inexpensive point and shoot (ugh, the days of taking pictures and not knowing what you had until the film was developed!).
|Waiting to see if anyone could beat our score.|
(If you look closely you'll see a future star.)
|Watching that leader board!|
It was tense but the Devils HAD earned their third consecutive State Championship.
|E.W. and The Pro share the moment.|
We sure do miss him.
|Champs again! That was such a happy day!|
|For us, it was a family affair. Still is. |
Kate made the trek with Banks to attend the ceremony.
Those days were a big part of her life, too.
|Sa and Gramps were true blue fans...|
|...and still are. So glad they were able to be at the|
Hall of Fame ceremony.
|This man loved (loves) those boys (men)!|
He is still so proud of what they accomplished all those years ago.
|Worth takes the stage.|
|New inductees; wish everyone could have been there!|
