CULLMAN, AL (WAFF) -

The awards keep coming for Athens native Michaela Williams and Huntsville's Michaela Morard.

Williams finished third Friday at the Alabama Amateur Stroke Play Championships in Cullman, Alabama, while Morard became the youngest winner at 14 years and seven months. Williams begins her freshman year at Tennessee in the fall while Morard is getting ready for her freshman year in high school
at Randolph. Both have enjoyed playing so much golf together.

“I played high school golf with Michaela ever since I started seventh grade, Morard said Friday. “Both Cammy and Michaela are great players and I love playing with them.”

“She just finished eighth grade,” Willams said of Morard. “When I was there I was playing SJAT's, and breaking 80 was a good day for me. I've never seen anybody that young play so well.”

Both players have continued the tradition of rising women's golfers from North Alabama.

“Every state tournament is competitive and there's been a lot of really good golfers lately,” Williams added. “All the tournaments have been a lot of fun.”

“Janie, and just people that have gone through the area and done so good," Morard said. “They are real role models for me, I can look up to them and play great.”

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
