Cadets cruise by Bruins

PITTSBORO — As a result of torrential overnight rains that bombarded Quail Creek Golf Course, Wednesday evening’s match between the Cascade and Tri-West boys’ golf teams took on a familiar feel as the spring weather continues to disrupt play.

With the lift-clean-and-place rule in effect, both teams had opportunities to shoot low scores.

Of the two squads, Cascade made the most of the situation and shot a season low mark to down Tri-West, 174-201.

“The golf course was extremely wet and they aren’t used to playing in the wet conditions,” Cascade coach Anthony Arthur said. “To come out with our low was pretty good and we are getting better.”

The Cadets’ Hunter Drury took medalist honors on the day, carding a 39 and leading Cascade to its first win of the young season.

Both Justin Franchville (40) and Jake Canaday (44) shot their season lows for the Cadets and combined with Drew Gowan (51) and Drury, the quartet made up Cascade’s scoring.

Also contributing for the Cadets on the day were Johnny Will (54) and Drake Whicker (51).

“This was our fifth day outside all season and we are behind where we should be,” Arthur said. “We are at the mercy of the weather and you can only get so much better hitting off a mat in the simulator.”

Tri-West struggled to find consistency on the afternoon, shooting over 20 strokes from where they were a couple of days earlier. Bruins’ coach Tom Pemberton believes the squad’s youth and the conditions were contributing factors.

“Mother Nature has not been kind to start the season this year,” Pemberton said. ”The lineup as a whole outside of our No. 1 golfer, everyone else is getting their feet wet as full time varsity players. With only two guys having varsity experience, it’s tough on the young guys.”
