The Franklin-Simpson Wildcats competed in a tournament this past Sunday in Campbellsville. The tournament was moved to Sunday due to inclement weather that occurred last Saturday.
The Wildcats shot a team score of 322 to finish fifth overall. Taylor County, who are the defending back-to-back state champions, won the tournament with Louisville St. Xavier finishing second and Louisville Trinity in third.
“I’m proud of my team,” Wildcats head coach Alec Silchuk said. “We need to learn from today’s round and move on to the next tournament.”
Senior Dalton Fiveash led the team with a score of 72 and finished fifth overall in the tournament.
“Dalton played really good,” Silchuk said. “He got off to a slow start but finished strong. His score of 72 and 5th place finish is good considering that he’s never played on this course along with his play with difficulty of this course wasimpressive and very proud of him.”
Senior Jake Konow and junior Chase Wilson each fired a score of 82.
“Chase didn’t have his best day today and unfortunately good players do have bad days and today was a bad day for him,” Silchuk said. “Jake played well. He stayed away from big numbers and finished with a season low score. He is getting better each week.”
Senior Dawson Owens fired a score of 86 with junior Ben Banton rounded out the scorecard with an 87.
“Dawson and Ben got off to slow starts,” Silchuk said.
“This course is difficult and it is hard to recover with its narrow fairways and small greens. It is definitely a course you need to play multiple times to feel comfortable playing on.”
