By TONY STINNETT, Courier Sports Editor

Cannon County’s golf team continued to show signs of competitiveness but fell short in a three-way match against Coffee County and Grundy County Thursday (Aug. 14).

Jacob Nave and Bradley Vickers led the Lions with a 46 on their nine holes. William Parker fired a 47, followed by Briar Jakes with a 49. Only the top four scores count toward the team score. Nick Vassar (53), Bradley Vickers (55), Josh Ruehlen (56) and Jake Todd (57) also competed for Cannon County.

“We have some good moments but we have to be more consistent,” Lions Coach Ronny Burks said.

The Lions fired a 188 and finished five strokes behind Grundy County (183). Coffee County won the match with a 161.
