As spring approaches, many sports are practicing and even beginning to compete, including the Cairo High Golf team. The first meeting for joining the golf team was held on January 21, and the first official practices began on February 7. The first match will be held in Cairo at the Tired Creek Golf Course against Mitchell County High School on February 24.
Head Golf Coach Mr. Daniel Coleman told the Red & Black that their goals for this season are to establish Cairo as a strong presence within the region and to have consistency of play and overall player improvement.
Some of the biggest matches will be against longtime rivals Bainbridge, Thomasville, and Thomas County Central, as well as the tournaments against Lowndes, Colquitt, and Valdosta.
