Young players led another Henry County golf team last week. This time, on Aug. 27, fifth-grader Alex Hadden led the team with a 48, as the boys’ golf team fell to Shelby County 186-217.
Other performances on the team include 8th grader Dillon Allen and fifth grader Isaac Klempner, who each shot 51; freshman Connor Lyons shot 67. Also competing but not figuring in the scoring were Shayne Strong who shot 70 and Tyler Tingle who shot 72.
“I knew this was going to be a tough season with such young players, but I am still so proud of my boys for how hard they are working on their games,” assistant coach Steve Allen said. “They practice after team practices; they practice after matches; that says a lot about them. Their futures look very good in this game considering how hard they work on it now.”
