The Owen County boys golf team is off to a good start in the 2009 season.

The Rebels hosted the NCKC Tournament Saturday at Fairway Golf Course. Owen County finished second behind Walton-Verona. The team was led by Jarrod Ball, who shot a 79. The score was good enough for a second-place finish among individual golfers. Zach Ripy had the eighth-best round of the day as he shot an 83.

Colton New posted an 89 while Brody Layton shot a 99. Jon Locker shot a 107 for the Rebels.

Earlier last week, the team was on the links as they took on Carroll County at Perry Park. Owen County won the match, led by Ripy who shot a two over par 38 for nine holes. Ball shot 40, and  Layton totaled a 45, in his first match.

The Rebels are now 2-2 on the season.

According to Owen County Boys Golf Coach Kevin Webster, in the Rebels’ four matches, an Owen County golfer has had the lowest round each time. Ripy and Ball have each done it twice.
