The Wildcats Golf Team has had a good fall, finishing second at one tournament and winning another. At both tournaments, the Wildcats had the top individual medalist.
The Wildcats finished second at a windy tournament last Thusday, Oct. 10, at Thorntree Country Club in DeSoto. They trailed only the host school.
Despite battling a sore leg ligament, Wildcats junior Kip Childress shot a five over par 77 to win the tournament. Senior Colton Bench shot 81 and junior Grant Mohesky had 84. Also for the Wildcats, Caleb Kesting shot 104 and Rylan Brewer shot 115. The team’s total was 346.
The Wildcats won a Monday, Oct. 14, tournament held at Sulphur Springs Country Club. Their team total was 323.
Battling muscle pulls, Bench shot a one under par 71 to win the tournament. Wildcats Golf Coach Jeremy DeLorge said Bench was one over entering the last three holes but, then, had two birdies and just missed a third with a lip out to finish at one under. Childress continued to battle with his sore leg ligament but shot 79. Mohesky also shot 79. Brewer shot 94 and Kesting 101.
Coach DeLorge said the Wildcats would resume tournament play next semester.
