Playing in the 5th Region Golf Tournament Monday at the Heritage Hills Golf Course, in Shepherdsville, Grayson County senior Cole Manion fired an even par 72, which tied him for the low round of the day.
However, Manion was edged out for the individual title when he lost on the second hole of a playoff to Larue County junior, Cameron Dawson. Still, Manion qualified to take part in next week’s State Tournament, which will be held at Bowling Green Country Club, in Bowling Green.
Elizabethtown won the team title when all five of its players shot rounds in the 70’s. Their team total of 307 was 15 strokes better than second-place Bullitt East, who also qualified for state.
Larue County finished in third with a round of 324, and Meade County was fourth at 327.
The Cougar team shot a combined score of 329 for fifth place. In addition to Manion’s 72, junior Josiah Dennis shot 81, senior Logan Hart had an 85, and senior Landon Nichols shot 91.
Shooting a non-scoring round of 101 was freshman Lincoln Nichols.
