Playing at Sherwood’s North Hills golf course, the Hornets took the I-30 trip to the Charging Wildcats Invitational.

Senior Brendon Morton led the team with a score of 80, highlighted by an eagle on hole one, a birdie on 12 and seven holes for par. Senior Landon Allison improved on his placing from El Dorado and finished his day at 81 strokes with a birdie on 12 and 16, with seven holes for par. Junior Logan McDonald finished his day with an 85 round, followed by 88 points from both sophomore Andrew Gaspard and freshman Daniel Taylor, who competed in his first tournament ever to replace Harbor. Head coach Steve Griffith acknowledged the “slow” day but remained optimistic. “We are building for September, what we shoot today does not impact us greatly it is still all about improving,” he said.

The Lady Hornets looked as though they were a brand new team bringing in two new faces for the tournament.

Junior Brooklyn Waller finished second for the Lady Hornets with 103 strokes. Meredith Medford earned a personal best game of 107, improving nine strokes from El Dorado. The team finished second with 304 strokes behind Cabot’s 276. “The girls played great today,” head coach Steve Griffith said. “They all produced good scores, it is the first time in a few years we are going to have a competitive girls team.”
