PROSPECT — Corbin’s Alex Davis turned in another solid effort by placing ninth in the 49th Annual Kentucky Invitational this past weekend, as the Redhounds placed tied for seventh overall in the event by shooting 312.
West Jesssamine placed first by shooting a 297, while St. Xavier (297), Christian Academy of Louisville (301), St. Mary (309) and Ballard (309) rounded out the top five.
“The course played long the entire time, but overall I felt like we played well,” Corbin coach Brad Harris said. “I’m pretty pleased with the way we played. This is an elite tournament we played in and we played good again.”
Christian Academy’s Ben Montgomery turned in a first place effort individually by shooting a 69 while St. Mary’s Mathew Zakutney finished second with a 70. Ballard’s Spencer Reed and Scott County’s Billy Tom Sargent tied for third place with each shooting a 71 and West Jessamine’s Fred Allen Myer placed fifth with a 72.
Corbin’s Cody Ellis shot a 76 for a ninth place finish while Connor Maguet (79, 40th place), Luke Cooney (83, 64th place) and Henry Moore (86, 78th place) followed.
“We played good, but we still didn’t have four guys finish in the 70s,” Harris said. “If we can do that, we will be right up there with the other teams. Right now, I’m looking at getting four guys in the 70s.
“I thought Alex Davis played really well and so did Cody (Ellis) and Connor (Maguet),” he added. “I really feel like we’re going to get better as the season goes on.”
