4:46 am | November 13, 2013

As an incoming freshman, one Lady Bulldog decided to take up the game of golf hoping to be a successful high school player. Four years later, she’s known as one of the top female golfers in East Tennessee.

Michaela Matheson is the first female from Hampton High School to ever sign a golf scholarship. She selected Milligan College in front of a large crowd at Hampton High School on Tuesday.

The three-time Three Rivers Conference MVP left quite a mark over her last three seasons as a Lady Bulldog. She was low medalist in the District in 2011 and earned her way into the state tournament for the past three years, finishing 37th, 32nd and 29th.
