  • Owen County’s Trenary triumphs

    Hunter Trenary should be used to winning. For the second-straight year, the junior has won the NCKC championship.
    After winning last year at Henry County, Trenary had the chance to defend the title on his home course as Owen County hosted the event Oct. 9. There was little drama at the finish line as Trenary finished first nearly one minute ahead of the nearest competitor.
    “I am very humbled to win two years in a row,” Trenary said. “I have been working very hard since last year.”
