Ladies golf results
June 20 Ladies Golf at Country Club
At 6 feet, 6 inches tall, Ty Buttrey stands well over his grandmother, Valley Cityâ€™s Jacquette â€śKettaâ€ť Stricklin.
Side by side, Kettaâ€™s head hardly reaches her grandsonâ€™s shoulder.
â€śHe didnâ€™t get the height from me,â€ť she jokes.
His response is more matter-of-fact.
â€śI got the athletic ability from you,â€ť he quickly responds.
Buttrey, who graduated from high school earlier this month in North Carolina, was ranked by Baseball America as the #38 prospect in the Major League Baseball draft, which took place earlier this month.
