FAYETTEVILLE — The Moore County High School boys golf team topped Huntland for the second time this season during a three-team match Tuesday, Aug. 27 at the Fayetteville Country Club.
The Raiders shot 194 as a team in the eight-hole District 9-A contest. Huntland finished with a 234, while host Fayetteville City had only three players competing. Teams must have four players for their scores to count toward the team results.
Gage Morrison led the way for Moore County with a 5-over 41. Cole Boyce fired a 48. MCHS teammates Tyler Durham and Chandler Smith carded a 52 and 53, respectively. Dylan Horner’s 56 didn’t count toward the team total.
Also golfing for Moore County were Austin Waters, who finished with a 53, and Tanner Womble, who had a 63.
Landon Morgan and Will Rector, who each had a 58, led Huntland. Fayetteville’s Luke West had the second lowest score of the day as he fired a 45 on his home course.
In girls action, Moore County’s Emily Powell finished with a 64 and teammate Breanna Woosley carded a 69. The girls field was paced by Fayetteville’s Catlyn Plunkett, who had a low score of 56.
The Raiders are already through the bulk of their 2013 schedule, which began on Aug. 8 in Lewisburg.
Moore County topped Huntland on Aug. 22 as well, with Morrison’s 44 leading the Raiders. Boyce had a 45, while Horner (53) and Waters (56) completed the scoring for MCHS in a 198-227 victory.
Moore County is scheduled to host Community at The Bear Trace at Tims Ford State Park on Tuesday, and then have a rematch with City at The Bear Trace on Thursday, Sept. 5.
An outing at WillowBrook in Manchester against St. Andrew’s-Sewanee and South Pittsburg is on tap for Sept. 10, and the team will close out the regular season on Sept. 12 at Blackberry Ridge against Forrest and Community.
Moore County’s nine-member golf team is coached by Brooke Lindsey and volunteer assistant coach George P. Silvertooth.
