Roundup: Lone Grove boys golf wins 4th tournament of 2021 season
There’s a reason why the Lone Grove High School boys golf team enjoys playing at Lake Murray Golf Course. And it has to do with winning after the Longhorns tallied another first-place finish Tuesday by shooting 338 to hold off Latta by one stroke.
Lone Grove has won four tournaments in 2021 and two of those were at Lake Murray.
“When you know the course, it’s a lot better to shoot,” said Longhorns head coach Tim Reeder. “We like to play out here. It’s a tough course and gets us ready for regionals.”
Brody Newton led Lone Grove at 79, which was good enough for a second-place tie. Bliss Newton followed in a tie for eighth at 83, while Tyler Eaves and Jaxon McClennahan each shot 88.
“They all shoot about the same,” Reeder said. “One day, one will shoot better than the other. But they’re all pretty much the same, so it’s good to know what they’re going to shoot before we go into the tournament.”
Turner’s Luke O’Dell rounded out the top-10 finishers with an 81 to tie for fourth.
Ardmore shot 365 as a team, with Ethan Moen shooting an 84 and Ramsey Ward at 86. Pranav Dahya finished at 93 and Matt Sheehy notched a 102.
Plainview tallied 376 as a squad, as Carson Allen led the way at 90. Cash Sullivan shot 94, while Nick Owen and Alistair Ross each tallied 96.
Jon McLemore led Dickson at 105 and Dillon Davis notched 108. Wilson’s Collin Wharton finished at 107, while teammate Jordan Parks followed with a 113.
