Horses dominate at River Landing

By Adam Capps -

The Four County Conference golf schedule went to River Landing Country Club in Wallace last week for their latest edition of conference golf. It was Clinton once again coming out on top, as they shot their team low for the season, with an incredible team score of 312.

The Horses had 3 players shoot in the 70s, including Chandler Perry’s 73, which was good enough for medalist honors. Reid Darden shot a solid round of 75, and Amy Wooten continued her strong play with a 76. Hampton Brock and Spell Carr both had solid rounds for the Dark Horses as well, as they shot 88 and 90, respectively.

Clinton’s coach Eddie Grey was pleased with his team’s play and another conference win.

“We had 3 players play really well today, and the supporting cast played nicely too,” said the Clinton head coach after the match. “I like the way we are playing right now, and we seem to be playing well at the right time.”

Midway’s team finished second, even though a long way back from first. Their team score of 354 was led by freshman Jordan Sullivan’s 83. Trey Pope shot 88, Aaron Rhodes shot 90 and Clay Honeycutt shot 94.

Union’s Evan Johnson continued his stellar season and once again led his team to a third place finish. Johnson has yet to shoot a score higher than 78 in his 5 matches, and shot 77 during the River Landing match. His steady play have helped the Spartans continue to stay in the top tier of the conference.

Brady Roberts was the other Spartan to shoot under 100, as he had a round of 91 during the tough conditions that strong winds brought.

The teams have a pair of matches this week, as they played at Coharie on Monday and then head to Castle Bay on Wednesday.

They are gearing up for Regionals the first week in May, as the 1A teams from the conference will play their regionals at Coharie, and the 2A teams will head to Land O’Lakes in Whiteville for theirs.
