Jacob Nave has produced some strong efforts against Upperman on the basketball court.
He turned in a stellar performance against the Bees on the golf course at Will Brook Thursday (Aug. 21).
Nave shot a season-low 40 to help lead the Lions to a tri-match victory. Cannon County shot 170 to turn back Upperman (178) and Gordonsville (228).
Nave enjoyed his best all-around game of the early season, including chipping in two shots from off the green to earn low medalist honors in the match.
Cannon County enjoyed its most consistent scoring of the early season with three players shooting 42 or better and all four players who counted toward the team score were in the 40s for the first time this season.
“We seem to be playing better as a team each time out,” Lions Head Coach Ronny Burks said. “We were more consistent against Upperman and Gordonsville and that’s a big part of the game. We have some players with experience and you hope that shows as the season progresses because it is a short season.”
Hunter Vickers and Briar Jakes had their best most complete performances. Each shot a 42 to bolster the team’s victory.
Josh Ruehlen is bouncing back from a leg injury well and shot a 46, followed by Nick Vassar with a 47.
William Parker finished with a 48 and Bradly Vickers shot a 60.
