Folz Takes Medalist, Colonels Take Win at Western Hills

Hopkinsville’s James Folz and Evan Pyle shot the two lowest scores, but Christian County’s ability to bring all four scorers in at 43 or lower gave them a three-shot win Tuesday in a three-team match at Western Hills Golf Course.

Folz shot an even-par 36 to take medalist honors on the day, while Pyle was one shot back with a 37. Will Binkley and Joey Falco both shot a 48, and Calvin Demps checked in with a 53.

Christian County had all five of their golfers come in at 44 or lower. Hannah Sumner, who was playing from the men’s tees, led the Colonels with a round of 40 and a third place finish. Houston George followed with a 41, then Micah Smith (42), Josh Johnson (43), and Chase Dawson (44).

The Colonels edged Hopkinsville by three shots (166-169) with Muhlenberg County third with 189. They were led by Camden Harris’ round of 43.

Austin Crick shot a 48 to finish tied for 10th place. Andrew Riggs played as an individual for Hopkinsville and shot a 49, while Christian County’s Bridget Owens shot a 50.
