The Anderson County boys' golf team captured the championship of the Central Kentucky Conference tournament last Thursday at Bright Leaf Golf Resort in Harrodsburg. The Bearcats outlasted Scott County, shooting 156 over nine holes to Scott's 158. Sayre finished third at 164 with Franklin County coming in fourth at 169.

Anderson's Zachary Toles took individual medalist honors with an even par 36. Josh Brown scored a 38 while Chris Sea and Trevor Morgan both shot a 41. Tyler Brothers came in with a 42, but his score was dropped. The top four scores are determine the team score.

“Our guys played well and made some big putts down the stretch, including Zach's birdie at the final hole to clinch medalist honors,” Anderson coach Jim Beward said. “This victory shows how deep and dangerous this group is going to be for the immediate future.”

Varsity beats Sayre

The Anderson County boys' varsity team defeated Sayre in a match styled after the Ryder Cup alternate-shot competition last Tuesday on the home course at Wild Turkey Trace. Sayre had already won the Central Kentucky Conference tournament but the Bearcats won the special match, sweeping all three pairings.

The tandem of Lee Robinson and Tyler Harrod won 3 and 2 while Zach Toles and Trevor Morgan won 2-up. Gabe McMichael and Nick Wilson took their match 4 and 2.

Beward said work on breaking the Bearcats' 18-year state tournament drought will begin in earnest this week.
