Bruins fall to Stars

PITTSBORO — Despite shooting its lowest score of the season, the Tri-West boys’ golf team fell to Sagamore Conference foe Western Boone on Thursday night at Quail Creek Golf Course, 193-169.

“Even though we were outmatched, our guys went a few below our previous best,” Tri-West coach Tom Pemberton said.

Tri-West’s only senior — and No. 1 golfer — Kyle Kirby shot a 45 to lead the Bruins, but Pemberton said Kirby had “an off night.” Kirby had shot 39 the previous three nights before the match.

Filling in the rest of Tri-West’s scoring were Levi Luzader (50), Zac Langle (50), Derek Renbeck (53), Josh Hatton (48) and Steve Bauer (60).

With two freshmen and a sophomore with no varsity experience coming into the season, Tri-West has been through some growing pains.

“It’s been a learning experience thus far,” Pemberton said.

Luzader, a sophomore, played last season, but was deep down on the depth chart and freshmen Renback and Hatton have had no organized golf experience.

However, Tri-West has begun to trend in the right direction. In their first four meets of the season, the Bruins shot above 200 and in four of the last five matches, Tri-West has dipped below 200.

“That’s not where we want to be, but they are getting better,” Pemberton said.

Team goals have been adjusted this season as wins will not be plentiful, but with the lack of experience, it’s to be expected. Individual effort and improvement are key to this season’s success.

“I’ve told my guys not to focus on what the opponents are doing, but instead focus on playing the golf course,” Pemberton said. “I’m looking at individual effort right now and improving on a guy to guy basis.”
