Hudson Hornet golf team hosts annual scholarship tournament

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Saturday morning the Lufkin Country Club golf course was filled with golfers showing off their swings for a good cause.

"It helps every kid here to get a better education and have a good time while helping others," said Courtney Aldredge, Hudson Senior.

The Hudson Hornet Golf Team hosted about 80 participants at their annual tournament.  All the proceeds go to the team's scholarship fund.

"Education is important I feel like any help that we can give them to further their education after they get out of high school is very beneficial towards them," said Lesa Cockrell, Hudson Varsity Golf Coach.

Courtney Aldredge is one of the many seniors participating in tournament.

She knows that each swing is a stepping stone to achieving her dreams on and off the course.

"Go into the dental hygiene program and hopefully maybe get accepted by TJC for golf," said Aldredge.

Even though Saturday's contest was all out of goodwill, Aldredge is making a huge impact for her team.

"She's pretty much carrying three guys right now so that's how good she is and that's how bad we are," said Brad Hlozek, tournament participant.

KTRE's Chief Meteorologist Brad Hlozek, was a last minute substitute for the event.

He says the opportunity to help further a student's education is a triumph anyone can be proud of, no matter their golf score.

"Anytime you can come out and play golf it's a good day but its an even better day today because we are helping to put money into the Hudson golf program," said Hlozek.
