Vickers low medalist


By TONY STINNETT, Courier Sports Editor

Hunter Vickers fired a 39 and was low medalist as Cannon County finished ahead of Monterey and Clarkrange, and just behind York, in its first match of the 2014 golf season (Aug. 5).

The Lions (179) were four strokes behind York (175) and easily outdistanced third-place Monterey (238) at Monterey Mountain Ridge.

Briar Jakes was second in scoring for the Lions with a 44, followed by William Parker (46), Jacob Nave (50), Bradley Vickers (54) and Jake Todd (57). Only the top four scores count toward the team total in high school golf.
Todd, a senior, fired an eagle on his first hole of high school golf.

The Lions were off to another good start in a three-way match against Coffee County and Shelbyville in a three-way match before the event was rained out Thursday (Aug. 7).
