At The Bear Trace at Tims Ford State Park, MCHS senior Emily Powell led the Raiderettes with a 57, while teammate Savannah Stevens finished with a 61. Breanna Woosley’s 68 didn’t count toward the team total (only the top two girls scores are tallied for the team score).

The Lady Tigers got a 63 from Lorin Gattis and a 70 from Skylar McDonald.

On the boys side, the Tigers completed the nine-hole affair with a score of 194 to best Moore County’s total of 225.

Moore County’s Austin Waters and Tanner Womble each carded a team-low 54. Hunter Brown came in with a 58 and Jay Layman finished at 59. The scores of Dillon Taylor (60), Montana Driver (62) and Clay Burnett (70) didn’t count toward the four-man team score.

On Thursday, Aug. 13, the Raiders and Raiderettes were back on the links at The Bear Trace at Tims Ford State Park, as they welcomed Middle Tennessee Christian School to their home course.

The Cougars won the match 181-230 behind the play of Trey Lashlee. Lashlee blistered the course with a 35. MTCS got a 45 from Grant Tiller and a 48 from Steven Turnham, while Trevor Tidwell tallied a 53.
