Mary Charles Davis Member Spotlight (Submitted by Emily Johnston)

Cullman High School junior Mary Charles Davis was named to the Alabama High School Athletic Association’s North All-Star team earlier last week.

The young Bearcat woman was thrilled to be able to represent Cullman High School in July, saying, “I’m so grateful for all the opportunities and experiences I’ve had to bring me to where I am. “

Davis is one of ten seniors selected to represent the northern half of Alabama in the annual North vs. South game.

“The All-Star Golf Drafts are an exceptional group of golfers who have dedicated themselves to golf,” Dean said. “We expect the competition at this year’s North-South All-Star Competition to be as strong as ever.”

Mary Charles, who has been playing for thirteen years now, started playing golf at the age of four when her father got her interested in golf. Now that she’s completed her fifth season in high school, she’ll be hitting the road to compete in Alabama Golf Association-sanctioned tournaments and the Southeastern Junior Golf Tour.

She will play in the AHSAA All-Star Game in July and complete a summer internship in Southeast Georgia at St. Simmons Island with PGA Pro Ray Cutright.

Jonathan Hayes, coach at Cullman High School, said: “I couldn’t be more proud of these two young [also Ian Willoughby]! Apart from their family, I was their biggest fan and became their golf coach! Watching them grow into young adults and fantastic golfers has been a privilege and an honour. And I get to watch and coach them once again at the AHSAA North/South All-Star Golf Tournament because I have been honored and selected as one of two coaches for the North Boys All-Stars. “
