Strong Showing

Corbin places second in the Rebel Challenge

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

BOYLE COUNTY — The Corbin Redhound golf team continues to turn in impressive results. Brad Harris’ squad placed second in the Rebel Challenge, shooting an impressive 305, which was good enough for a second place finish.

St. Xavier won the 19-team event with a 291 while Lexington Catholic finished third with a 311, Christian Academy of Louisville finished fourth with a 314 and Taylor County rounded out the top five with a 315.

“I am really happy with the way we played,” Corbin’s Harris said. “I thought things went really well for us. We were able to have our full line-up out there and each one of our players played really well.

“I’m really happy with the way things are going,” he added. “I like where we are at this point of the season, but there is always room for improvement, and we realize that. These guys continue to work hard and to have this type of a performance against some of the top teams in the state is really big.”

St. Xavier’s Brendon Doyle won the event with a 66 while Glasgow’s Chase Landrum (70), Adair County’s Riley Grant (71) and South Warren’s Jared Brown (71) followed.

Corbin’s Connor Maguet continued his stellar play by turning in an even-par 72, good enough for a fifth place finish.

“Connor is really playing great golf right now,” Harris said. “His finishes have been incredible so far this season. This is the fifth event he has shot at least even-par — he’s just having some great finishes.”

Corbin’s Alex Davis finished the Rebel Challenge with a seventh place effort, shooting a 74, while Henry Moore placed 11th with a 75 and Russ Tolliver (finished 46th with an 84) and Brandon Elliott (finished 65th with a 90) rounded out the Redhounds’ players in the event.

“All of our guys are working hard,” Harris said. “My senior leaders are really setting a good example for our young guys right now. We just need to continue to play like this. Like I said, there is always room for improvement, but I am very pleased with the way we are playing right now.”
