Corbin turns in solid effort at Kentucky Invitational Tourney

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

LOUISVILLE — The Corbin High School boys golf team turned in a solid effort this past weekend, finishing 10th in the 50th Kentucky Invitational Tournament at Nevel Meade Golf Course in Prospect.

Corbin turned in a 29-over-par 317 as a team, while West Jessamine grabbed first place by six strokes with a 10 over 298. Connor Maguet led the team with a round of 74, just two shots over par, good enough for a five-way tie for sixth place overall. West Jessamine’s Fred Allen Meyer was the only golfer to finish under par, shooting a 4-under-par 68 to take home first place by five strokes.

Corbin coach Brad Harris said he was initially pleased with the effort, but admitted that after he thought about the teams in the field, he was even more impressed with Corbin’s finish.

“After sitting down and thinking about it, the field in this was as good as the state tournament field,” Harris said. “The state tournament has the top two teams from each region, while we played against the top 20 teams in the state in the Kentucky Invitational.

“You’ve got the top teams from Louisville and Lexington all in this field, while all of them don’t necessarily advance to the state tournament,” he added. “Our kids really rose to the challenge, led by our returning seniors.”

Corbin’s Alex Davis shot a 77, which was good enough to put him in a tie for 18th (three others), while Henry Moore and Russ Tolliver joined six others tied for 61st place, each turning in a round of 83. Brandon Elliott rounded out Corbin’s scores with a 97.

The Redhound golf team will be back in action today at the London Country Club for a home match against Whitley County and North Laurel.
