Those with it will prosper.
Those without it will struggle.
One just had to look up at the leaderboard in just about every event the Lady Cougs played in to underscore this.
Izard County's name would be near or at the top of the team standings, while the Lady Cougs' one-two punch, Rachel Harmon and Kiley Mettler, would be battling it out for individual medalist honors.
The Lady Cougars finished as state runners-up, while Mettler finished as runner-up medalist in the event.
Three-time defending champion Conway St. Joseph made it four state girls' golf titles in a row with a team total of 251, 15 strokes better than second-place Izard County.
Mettler was just two strokes off the pace with a 79.
Harmon, the district and regional medalist, was right behind both with an 82.
Enderlin, Mettler and Harmon not only earned All-State honors, they also received invites to the Overall Championship, pitting the top golfers from all classifications against each other, scheduled for Oct. 15 at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Little Rock.
Smackover finished third in the state tournament with a team score of 283.
Calico Rock's Emily Johnson shot a 94 in state tournament play, barely missing out on All-State honors.
Abbey Blevins, representing the Salem Lady Greyhounds, finished with a 109.
Mammoth Spring's Kaitlyn Haney carded a 119 at the state tournament.
