The Cougar golf team continued to push themselves early in the season, winning one event and finishing second in another.

 

Wednesday, Aug. 22, the Cougars earned first place overall in a five team match at Ole Mill Golf Course at Laurel Fork.

 

The course is a Par 72 course. The Cougars finished first with a team score of 343. Salem finished a distant second with a score of 357, followed by Floyd County at 363, Carroll County at 366 and Giles at 371.

 

For the Cougars the leader of the day was Jason Hall, who finished with an 80. Barry Buckner Jr. was close behind at 83, followed by Jake Mitchell at 87, Austin Crabtree at 93 and Bay Moore at 111.

 

This was the first big win in a match with a large number of teams for the Cougars in several seasons.

 

The Cougars were back in action Monday, Aug. 27, with a trip to the Blacksburg Country Club, a Par 72 course.

 

Blacksburg took top honors with a score of 294. The Cougars finished the day in second place with a 325. Salem again trailed the Cougars, finishing third at 337. Cave Spring was fourth with 345, Christiansburg was fifth at 353 and Patrick Henry was sixth at 371.

 

Jake Mitchell stepped his game up to earn top honors for the Cougars with a 78. Buckner took second at 80, followed by Hall with an 82, Riley Moore at 85, Crabtree at 91 and Bay Moore at 107.

 

The 78 by Mitchell is the lowest score he has recorded in his high school career, and the 325 is the lowest team score for Pulaski County in four seasons.

 

The Cougars were scheduled, weather permitting, to travel to Hidden Valley Country Club Thursday and then to Hanging Rock Golf Course in Salem Monday, Sept. 10.
