Outstanding job Corinth golfers! We raised more than three times the amount of money we set out to achieve. Our school had more teams than any other of the schools. Again thanks to all of you that participated last Monday. Our school will be bringing a trophy home for the second straight year. Let's give a loud shout out to Corinth dad and Blue Hills P. G. A.
