Posted 10/1/2017 in High School Sports

Ethan Howell didn't know what to expect Monday as he traveled to the Alabama Christian Athletic Association State Golf Championship. Howell, a junior at Victory Christian Academy in Columbus, had plenty of time to think on the three-plus hour drive, although he didn't have much to go on.
