Georgia Northwestern Bobcats In 10th Place After 1st Round In Montgomery

Monday, November 13, 2017 - by Scott Herpst

Eighteen holes into the 2017 Central Alabama Community College Trojan Invitational in Montgomery, Al., and the Georgia Northwestern Bobcats have quite a bit of ground to make up on most of the rest of the pack.

The Bobcats had three scores in the 70's in Monday's first round, but had to count a score in the 90's and find themselves in 10th place out 14 teams in the field.

Branton Bailey navigated the 6,979-yard layout at the Wynlakes Golf Club with a 2-over par 74, which tied him for 10th place in the individual standings. Cole Roberts and David Manis each shot a 79, good to tie them both for 28th place.

However, Lane Strickland and Adrian Clark both struggled in the first round. Strickland had a 91 (T-71st) and Clark carded a 93 (75th) and the Bobcats were forced to count Strickland's score, giving them a 18-hole total of 323.

A trio of Alabama schools lead the way going into Tuesday's final round.

Calhoun (Ala.) C.C. is in first place with a 6-over par total of 294, followed by Wallace State C.C. at 301 and Central Alabama, the host school, with a 306.

Individually, only three players finished the round under par. Wallace State's Brandon Lacasse set the pace with a 5-under 67 on Monday. He is one shot ahead of Calhoun's Sam Murphy (68) and two clear of Ryan Graybar of Cape Fear (N.C.) C.C. (69).

Tomorrow's final round will mark the end of the fall season for the Bobcats.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)
