NCHS golf teams start season strong
By Ross Haney
The Nicholas County High School girls and boys golf teams, under the direction of veteran coach Phillip French, have been off to a great start in their 2014 season. With a Bluegrass Conference win already under their belt, there’s no telling what they boys team will accomplish as the season progresses. The girls team is also in for a good season, faring well against opponents in their first few matches.
NCHS Boys Golf took the win of the Bluegrass Conference held at Stoner Creek on Saturday, Aug. 9. Devin Trussell led the team to victory, shooting at a 79, which also earned him overall medalist honors. Trent Letcher (90), Jacob Jolly (94), Christian George (84), and Tyler Newton (92) rounded out the team, also with good play overall at the match. Nicholas County defeated Berea (347), Paris (359) and Model (347), with the overall lowest score, at 345.
On Monday, Aug. 11, both the girls and boys teams took on Harrison County at the Cynthiana Country Club. Although the team played to the best of their abilities, there was no final score called on the match due to unplayable weather conditions. However, both the girls and boys teams will use what little playing time they were given on Monday as the experience of playing on an unfamiliar course, and just honing-in on their skills in general.
The match set to have been hosted in Nicholas County on Tuesday, August 12, was cancelled.
Upcoming matches for this week in golf include:
August 13 – Boys and Girls at Mt. Sterling
August 14 – Boys at Flag Springs
August 18 – Boys and Girls – Class A at Flag Springs
