Hoptown's Folz continues strong start; locals pack Paxton Park

Hopkinsville's James Folz carded a 37 to win a tri-match Monday in Madisonville, but it was Hopkins County Central that came away as the team winner.

Folz earned medalist honors by two shots over Hopkins County Central's Trae Barber as the Storm golfer finished with a 39.

Despite both teams shooting a 170, the Storm won on a scorecard playoff. Union County came in third with a 224.

Evan Pyle has also had a strong start to the season and picked up another top-three finish as he shot a 42. Will Binkley finished third for the Tigers with a 44.

Along with their finish Monday, the Tigers had a solid showing at Paxton Park in Paducah Saturday when Folz led the way with an 80. Pyle also shot below 90 and finished with an 88.

Also at Paxton, University Heights Academy's Weston Wood carded a 78 while Jiles Wyatt shot 80.

Christian County was led by Josh Johnson's 80. Micah Smith (83), Houston George (86) and Chase Dawson (91) also had good days for the Colonels.

Trigg County was led by Hunter Reynolds' 78 as Ty Butts (82) and Hayden Reynolds (84) also show low for the Wildcats.

On the girls' side at Paxton, Hannah Sumner shot an 84 and Bridget Owens shot a 93. UHA's Conlee Lindsey led the Lady Blazers with a 95.

Area teams hit the links again Thursday at Western Hills as Hopkinsville, University Heights Academy, Christian County, Trigg County and Hopkins County Central will be competing.
