Adair County boys’ golf played in the regional tournament on Tuesday at Connemara Golf Course in Nicholasville.
The team didn’t fare as well as they had hoped but came away with a fifth place finish overall as a team in the field.
“You can’t try to win region with only one score in the 70s,” Coach Chris Lewis said. “We did not do very good as a team; I hate it for these seniors but we had our chances all day.”
Riley Grant led the team with his score of 74 that was good for a third place finish overall and helped him to qualify for state as an individual.
“I’m so proud of this man,” Coach Lewis said. “He battled all day and never quit.”
The remainder of scoring for the Indians were Tanner Garmon with an 81, Korey Hundley 86, Blake Maupin 90, and Jameson Miller shot a 91.
The boys ended the season not as well as they had hoped in the beginning but all in all, it was a successful season for the squad.
“Overall it was a good season; we all knew it would come down to today and we just didn’t have it,” Coach said. “These four seniors (Grant, Hundley, Garmon and Maupin) will be missed next year.”
The state competition will take place next Friday and Saturday at the Bowling Green Country Club.
