Quest for No. 5

Redhound golf team looking for fifth straight regional crown

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

CORBIN — The Corbin Redhound golf team will try to continue their recent success and capture their fifth straight 10th Region championship this fall.

Brad Harris’ squad has dominated the golf action in the 10th Region the past four years and hopes to continue to do so once their season begins today in the Lafayette High School 5-Star Invite.

The Redhounds turned in a stellar ninth place finish in the KHSAA State Golf Championships last year in Bowling Green. Corbin returns three starters from 2011.

“I really feel good about the season,” Harris said. “We’ve got three of our top five guys back from last season and we also have other players that are very good battling to play in the top five.

“I’m excited for the season to begin,” he added. “We’ve been undefeated during the past four or five years in our regular season matches and have won the past four or five SEKC championships, too. Our guys have really worked hard to improve and they have played good over the summer.”

Returning to the mix for the Redhounds are 10th Region individual champion Cody Ellis along with Connor Maguet and Alex Davis.

Harris said Henry Moore (junior), Luke Cooney (senior) and Russ Tolliver will also compete for the final two spots on the starting five.

“Like I said, they are battling really hard to get in the top five,” Harris said. “The three players we have returning know they have to play well. They have a lot of experience and have played in a lot of invitationals that I hope will help them.

“We had a lot of depth last year and we had a lot of very good players competing for spots and I believe it has made those players better, too,” he added. “I’m excited about this year’s team.”

Harris said he expects his team to compete for the 10th Region championship again, but admitted it’s going to take a total team effort for his Corbin squad to accomplish the feat.

“If we can put everything together, then I like our chances,” he said. “Right now, we still have players playing for positions, so we’re going to have to wait and see.

“There is a lot of parity on the team and that will just make us better,” Harris added. “It’s one of our goals to win the region and return to the state tournament and for us to do that, we’re going to have to go out and play our best consistently.”
