Local Roundup: Chapman goes the distance in SEB win


    REIDSVILLE — Southeast Bulloch got a complete-game effort from Blair Chapman as the Lady Yellow Jackets notched an impressive 2-1 win over Tattnall County on Tuesday in Reidsville.
    “We weren’t sure what to expect,” SEB coach Aimee Civalier said. “Tattnall is a good team on the other side of our region. They return almost everyone from last season, so getting this win was big for us.”
    Mary Grace Manahan recorded two hits and an RBI while Emma Britt and Leah McCarthy also recorded a pair of hits each and both scored a run.
    Chapman was on top of her game both on the mound and in the batter’s box. The freshman laced a single to knock in what turned out to be the game-winning run.
    “That was a great effort for a freshman,” Civalier said. “We have a number of freshman who have stepped up and played really well these first few games.”
    Southeast Bulloch gets a few days off before returning to Reidsville for this weekend’s tournament hosted by Tattnall County.

GSU golfer qualifies for Match Play
    BROOKLINE, Mass. — Georgia Southern golfer Scott Wolfes fired a 67 on the The Country Club Course in the second round of the U.S. Amateur Championship to tie for ninth and earn a spot in match play Wednesday.
    Wolfes’ 67 was the lowest on The Country Club course Tuesday and one of just four scores under par.
    "I hit a lot of good shots today and when I was in trouble, I played smart and stayed patient,” Wolfes said.
    The top 64 players from two rounds of stroke play advanced to match play and are seeded based on their standing. Wolfes finished stroke play 1-under (139) and will tee off today at 11 a.m., at The Country Club. His opponent will be determined after a playoff tomorrow at 7 a.m. The Golf Channel will provide TV coverage from 3-5 p.m.
    The junior finished his second round with a flurry, birdieing the final two holes of the day. He was 3-under par on the back nine and 2-under on his final four holes.
