Barbourville's Engle grabs second in All 'A'

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

BARBOURVILLE — The Barbourville High School golf team may not have qualified for the Touchstone Energy All ‘A’ Classic State Golf Tournament, but several of the squad’s individual competitors turned in some of the best showings of any Tri-County team.

Kristin Engle finished second overall with a final score of 76, second to Glasgow’s Emily Alexander, who brought home a state title with a round of 74.

Whitney Messer rounded out the Lady Tigers’ participants with an 87, good enough for a 14th place finish.

Barbourville coach Dennis Messer said he was proud of Engle and Messer’s effort and admitted he had to give credit where credit was due.

“These girls just missed making the state tournament by a few strokes, but they really put in a lot of work in this tournament,” coach Messer said. “I know they were disappointed to not make the tournament as a team, but the effort was there as individuals.

“It just goes to show that when you work hard you can do really good things and these girls have worked hard in the offseason to get where they are,” he added. “We’re having a good season overall and I really like our chances when the region tournament comes around, so we just have to keep working hard to improve.”

Williamsburg, the team representing the 13th region, finished fifth in the state with a total score of 377, behind Glasgow (337), Owensboro Catholic (352), Lexington Christian Academy (373) and Villa Madonna (377).

Rebecca Jervis was the top finisher for the Lady Yellow Jackets, posting a round of 85, good enough for 12th overall.

Morgan Walker and Julia Higginbotham finished with a 90, good enough for a two-way tie in 19th place. Morgan Owens shot a 112 to round out Williamsburg’s scores.

Barbourville's Collin Grubb turned in the best local finish on the boys side with a score of 89.
