The Mooresville area will have ample ammunition in place in a statewide high school-level golf competition to take place later this week.
Both in the clubhouse as well as out on the fairways, the area will be well-represented during the play of the annual Tarheel Cup competition.
The event sanctioned by the N.C. High School Athletic Association pits the top current senior-class players – featuring both girls and boys participants - from across the state in a Ryder Cup-style affair slated to tee off over the upcoming weekend.
The attraction features both a West Region and East Region team in the mix.
Mooresville will be a fixture as a West Region entry.
Current Mooresville High School boys golf coach Charles Hopkins will be serving in the same capacity on the boys West squad. Hopkins will also be counting on a pair of familiar golfers for providing key contributions.
Mooresville’s Hayden Estes and Lake Norman’s Owen Swavely will both be members of the boys West Region roster.
Play will take place on the River Landing golf course in Wallace. Competition will take place over the course of two days and will incorporate a number of different playing formats.
The event will tee off on Saturday and conclude the following day.
Participation in the Tarheel Cup comes following the playing of the NHCSAA state boys golf championships that were held in each of the organization’s classifications earlier in the week.
