It was a second-place finish for the Owen County Boys’ Golf Team last week at the All “A” Classic.

The second-place finish was another strong showing for the young team who earlier this season finished second at the NCKC Tournament at Fairway Golf Course.

Jarrod Ball and Zach Ripy each shot 80 to make the All-Tournament Team.

Both players missed making the state tournament by a single shot.

“I hate it for Zach and Jarrod that they came so close to going to state but they are still young and will get their chances,” Owen County High School Head Boys Golf Coach Kevin Webster said.

Ball is an eighth-grader while Ripy is a freshman.

Colton New finished the day with a 91, while Brody Layton, in his first year of high-school golf, shot a 98. Jon Locker carded a 107. Webster said it was Locker’s best round away from Fairway Golf Course.

“I am very proud of all of them,” Webster said.
