The Rockmart High School varsity cheerleading team hosted their annual golf tournament at Meadow Lakes Golf Course in Cedartown recently.

More than 50 golfers participated in the annual event, which was a four-man best ball tournament.

The team of Shain Pope, Jesse Starnes, Jordan Starnes and Zach Vick won the tournament with a score of 53. The second place team consisted of Timmy Montgomery, Tristan Montgomery, Austin Reynolds and Dylan Guice. That team finished the day with a 55.

The third place team of Michael Leatherwood, Shane Leatherwood, Lane Leatherwood and Ben Boyd finished the tournament with a 58.

Former Rockmart High School golfer Brady Garrett made the longest drive on the first hole, while Boyd received the closest to the pin prize for his shot on hole No. 10.

Organizers noted that Sidekicks Restaurant sponsored a meal for the golfers and cheerleaders at the end of the tournament.

Some of the golf teams were sponsored by local businesses such as Rockmart Finance, Johnny’s Enterprises, John Purser of Allstate Insurance and TNT Insulation.

Businesses sponsoring holes were Statham Tire & Muffler, Lowe Welding & Fabrication, IcedDreamz by April, Sidekicks, McNabb Tire, TNT Insulation, Four Seasons Lawn Care, El Nopal, On-the-spot Locksmith, Sullins Enterprises, Jeff Rickett of Wachovia Securities, Culver Insurance, Buy Low Building Supply, Robinson’s Tree Service and John Purser of Allstate Insurance.

The Rockmart cheerleaders want to thank the participants, sponsors and donors for supporting their golf tournament. The money raised is used to support the team in their choreography camp and other needs for competitions – including uniforms and practice equipment.
