“Dylan [Jones] really worked in the off season and has improved his average by 11 shots this year,” Culbreth said. “All his rounds but one have been in the 70s. Will Ballard started off a little slow but has come on strong at end of year having shot two 73s in his last three rounds.”

Ballard, a sophomore, and junior Will Trakas both made all conference.

Sophomore Jaron Bontraber and freshman Tanner Garrett will also be going to regions.

At region the top three teams and top three players (even if they were not on one of the top teams) will make state, Culbreth said.
