With the district tournament looming in less than two weeks, Cannon County’s boys golf team is heating up at the right time.

Cannon County turned in one of its best rounds of the season in a tri-match with district foes Murfreesboro Central and Livingston Academy at Willow Brook Tuesday (Aug. 26).

Central won the match with a score of 150. Cannon County was second with a 174, followed by Livingston Academy with a 190.

Key in Cannon County’s late-season surge has been better consistency amongst its scorers - particularly players who were at the top of the list last season.

Mainstay Hunter Vickers posted a 42 to lead the Lions. William Parker added a 43 and Briar Jakes posted a 44. Jacob Nave and Josh Ruhlen each scored 45, followed by Nick Vassar with a season-best 47 and Jake Todd with a low of 52.
