With the Shell Houston Open just weeks away, a Georgia family is gearing up for the following tournament in the PGA Tour by spreading awareness to golf patrons and professionals around the county of the #WearWhiteforWilliam movement that will take place on April 05,  2017 on "family day" at the Masters.

William Thompson IV, a vivacious, bright, golf-loving, twelve year old, was suddenly taken from this world on 1/30/17. An illness struck him hard and turned out to be a lethal case of bacterial meningitis. Now, six weeks later, his father, Bill Thompson, seeks to raise awareness of the illness, honor the memory of his son, and celebrate the lives that were able to be continued through the selfless gift of organ donation.

Two days after William passed, the students at his middle school rallied together to participate in a “White Out” to show their solidarity and pay respect to their classmate. The movement was known as #WearWhiteforWilliam. Bill Thompson hopes to continue that movement at the Masters, as William was an avid lover of golf. He shared a birthday with Tiger Woods and never hesitated to join his father and grandfather as they spent their time on the green.

“He was my only child. His mother is heartbroken. And so am I,” Thompson says. But on April 5th, 2017, a day that is also known as “family day,” at the Masters, the Thompson family is asking Augusta, and more specifically the patrons of the tournament and golf professionals, to #WearWhiteforWilliam.

Varsity vs Channelview (Win 7-0) - Feb 28th


Tuesday night, the Lady Mustangs traveled down to Channelview to take on the Lady Falcons.  The weather was awesome and the game went even better.  The first 20 minutes or so, the Lady Mustangs held almost complete possession and began to wear down the Lady Falcon defense.

In the 23rd minute, senior Amanda Poppell slipped a ball through the defensive line to sophomore Colleen Feagins who placed it past the Lady Falcon goalkeeper. This goal sparked the Lady Mustangs and allowed them to take control of the score board quickly.

In the 28th minute, junior Fiona Zimmerman found sophomore Isabel Shanahan with a pass that she was able to get past the goalkeeper.  Then just six minutes later, Fiona found senior Nikki Brown with a similar ball that Nikki was able to put into the back of the net, bringing the halftime score 3 to 0.

In the second half, the game was very similar with the Lady Mustangs holding on to the lead and all of the possession.  In just the 8th minute, a hand-ball was called on the Lady Falcons inside the penalty area and a penalty kick was awarded.  Senior Hannah Bodron stepped up and blasted it past the goalkeeper, thus bringing the score to 4 to 0. Only 8 minutes later, Isabel Shanahan was able to dribble through multiple defenders and find the back of the net.

Then with 10 minutes left in the game, Fiona Zimmerman assisted Colleen Feagins with a goal, and with only 3 minutes left, Hannah Bodron finished everything off with her own, unassisted goal.  The final score would go down as 7 to 0 in favor of the Lady Mustangs.

Varsity vs North Shore HS (Win 6-0) - Mar 3rd
Friday night, the Lady Mustangs took on North Shore High School in a battle of the Lady Mustangs. The game leaned heavily in KW's favor and ended up getting out of hand rather quickly.

In the 6th minute, junior Rachel Guilfoyle played a great ball down the sideline to junior Fiona Zimmerman who got an early cross off to freshman Emma Ebert.  Emma was able to take the ball out of the air and volley it directly past the goalkeeper.  Seven minutes later, Fiona Zimmerman took a corner kick that sailed into the middle of the goal area and was headed strongly by senior Hannah Bodron.  Two minutes later, history would repeat itself as Fiona played another corner kick into Hannah Bodron who was unmarked and able to head it directly into the goal, bringing the score to 3 to 0.

In the 28th minute, senior Kate Kacena was able to get her first goal of the season when senior Cora Barker passed her a ball at the top of the penalty area.  Kate was able to box out the defender, turn towards goal, take the goalkeeper on 1v1, and put away the 4th goal of the game. Then only 4 minutes later junior Abby Anderson crossed a ball to senior NIkki Brown who tapped it past the goalkeeper only 5 yards from goal.

The last goal of the game was scored by sophomore Sarah Schumacher (also her first of the season) in the 20th minute. Junior Alison Kim crossed a ball into the box that was deflected right away and directly onto Sarah's foot.  She looked up and noticed the goalkeeper was out of position and smashed a long distance shot into the back corner of the goal, bringing the final score to 6 to 0.

JV Blue vs Kingwood Park (Loss 0-1) - Feb 28th
JV Blue took on Kingwood Park this Tuesday while the Varsity and JV White traveled to Channelview. The girls came out strong, controlling the game for most of the half and creating several good scoring chances for themselves. At the 12th minute K Park scored off a penalty kick from a handball in the box to make the score 0-1. JV Blue fought hard the remainder of the half to try to tie the score, but could not find the back of the net. At half, the Lady Mustangs adjusted their formation to try to push for a goal to tie the game, but unfortunately could not equalize the score. The girls did an outstanding job controlling the game and fighting throughout the entire game to try to win it despite the score outcome.

JV Blue vs North Shore (Win 5-0) - Mar 3rd
The JV Blue took control of the game early in the first half when Brooke Baldon dribbled in to score an unassisted goal in the first 30 seconds of the game. The Lady Mustangs continued to control the game adding two more goals in the first half making the score 3 - 0 at half. The other first half goals were scored by Emily Zerkel, assisted by Annika Miller in the 10th minute, and Annika Miller, assisted by Cami Wall in the 13th minute. In the second half, the girls continued to have multiple scoring chances, keeping possession almost the entire half. The score remained 3 - 0 until late in the second half when a goal was scored by Sam Arrollado off a pass from Annika Miller. The final score of the game was 5 - 0, after Kylie Browning added an unassisted goal in the 64th minute. The JV Blue have two games left in their season and this win makes their record 11-3-2.

JV White vs Channelview (Win 7-0) - Feb 28th
This was the second time the Lady Mustangs had met the Falcons and the score for both games was 7-0.  The Mustang defense was superb allowing no goals and helped the offense control the game.  Goals were scored by Brianna Giannovola (1) Loryn Bagley (4) and Destiny Amaya (2) Four goals went unassisted, and the assists go to Jamilynn Hanner (2) and Hannah Topp (1).

JV White vs College Park (Win 6-0) - Mar 3rd
JV White played our last home game against College Park! The Lady Mustangs came out strong scoring with Kelli Llewellyn scoring in the first two minutes; 3 goals followed by Brianna Giannavola (2) and Julie Klijn Velderman.  Mikayla Carlos had an amazing save diving to the pole to keep College Park scoreless. During the second half the Lady Mustangs were able to keep College Park contained allowing no goals and Loryn Bagley scoring 2 more goals.
