The Wildcats’ golf team, playing at the new Tempest Golf Club course in Gladewater, won a tournament over a ten team field on Monday (October 29).
Wildcats Golf Coach Chris Owens said Carter Lewis finished second overall with a score of 73 and Colten Bench shot a 74 to finish in fourth place. Also for the Wildcats Grant Mohesky shot an 86 and Andrew Escobar came in with an 88. The teams score was 321. Coach Owens said he was excited to see two Wildcats shoot in the low 70’s. He said that Mohesky and Escobar are also capable of shooting much better scores.
Coach Owens said the revamp work on the Tempest course, which he called beautiful and challenging, was completed this summer. It was formerly called Southern Hills. Coach Owens said the new course was long and featured several two and three tiered greens. He said the course required exact placement of drives.
The tournament was the Wildcats second of the fall. They will play their third and final fall tourney next Monday (November 5) at the Mount Pleasant Country Club.
