Panther golf team falls in sudden death


CROSSVILLE — The Stone Memorial High School golf teams played a District 6AAA match Monday against Rhea County at Dayton Country Club.

The Panthers tied the Golden Eagles 174-174 after nine holes, but won on the first hole of sudden death on a birdie by Dustin Lee and a par by Stone McCoy.

Lee led the way with a team low and season low 36. Rounding out the scoring were McCoy (41), Chase Allred (48), Wyatt SMith (49) and Parker Hill

On the girls side, Tori Harris continued her solid season with a 51 to lead all girls. Sadie Hoover did not play.

"I was very pleased with how well all the players played after waiting through a rain delay and then having to play in extremely wet conditions on an unfamiliar course. It is great to get our first district win, pushing our current record to 2-1," said Coach Nathan Brown.

The White County and Kingston rain outs have been rescheduled for Aug. 26 and Aug 27. Both matches will be played in Crossville, although the course is to be announced.

SMHS plays CCHS Thursday at Bear Trace.
