The Metcalfe Golf team started the week en fuego. Metcalfe threw low score after low score at Green County Monday, defeating the Dragons by almost 20 strokes at their home course in Summer Shade.
The Hornets finished the day an impressive two over as a team, for a final score of 146-165. Ben Shirley led the Hornets with a two under 34. Kruz Tucker finished the day with a par 36, followed by Collin Shive (37) and Noah Emmitt (39).
Tuesday the boys traveled to the Pines in Columbia for a match with Adair County. The Indians showed to be no match for the Hornets, as Ben Shirley was low man, leading Metcalfe again (38). Once again Collin (41), Kruz (45), and Noah (45) were close behind bringing in low scores for the Hornets. Metcalfe enjoyed their second victory of the week, 169-172.
Thursday would not play as favorable for Metcalfe. With low man Ben Shirley on the gridiron Thursday night, the golf team would struggle to find its identity at Rowlett’s as they took on the Hart County Raiders and Russell County Lakers. The Hornets would come in high, 189, falling both to Hart (171) and Russell (157).
After Saturday’s Raider Invitational at Shady Hollow, the Hornets will be back on the road two times this week. Tuesday will be a trip to Hidden Hills in Monroe County for a match with the neighboring Falcons. The Hornets will finish the week Thursday at Dale Hollow as they take on both Cumberland and Clinton County.
