Garnto, LeCave win ‘Last Finalist’ spots after fan vote

After narrowing down a list of golfers to just six girls finalists and six boys finalists, we opened it up for a public vote to add the LAST FINALIST on each side. 5,818 votes were logged in total for the girls, and 5,031 of those were in favor of Dawson County’s Anna LeCave. For the boys, 1,123 total votes came in, and Commerce’s Trey Garnto (844) earned the ‘Last Finalist’ spot.

The finalists are now set. For the girls, it’s Mercades Housman (Lumpkin), Katherine Law (Jefferson), Anna LeCave (Dawson), Macy Murdock (Tallulah Falls), Jada Pittman (Jefferson), Shelby Speed (Banks), and Ermay Vazquez (Commerce). The boys are: Brad Chosewood (Habersham), Trey Garnto (Commerce), Turner Grimmett (Rabun), Lambdin Hardy (Commerce), Buck Ledford (Banks), Matthew Schroeder (Jefferson), and Cam Wilson (White).
