Hal "Bear" Dollander carded a score of 2-under par 70 and then survived a five-hole scorecard playoff to earn low medalist honors at the Georgia Association of Private & Parochial Schools DII state golf tournament played on the East Course at Bull Creek Golf Course in Columbus, Ga., on May 8.

Dollander's performance propelled the Habersham School team to a runner-up finish behind champion Calvary Christian from Columbus. Dollander was tied with Calvary Day's Tristen Whitley after the 18-hole round and finally prevailed in a scorecard playoff.

Habersham Senior Tyler Tift posted a 5-over par 77 to place fifth, and junior Talyn Children and senior Cohen Heidt both turned in 8-over par 80 to round out the scoring for the Patriots.

Veritas Academy's Madi Saxton finished with an even-par 72 to finish two strokes out of first place behind Dollander and Whitley.
