Men's Golf has been busy. Friday, March 21st and Saturday March 22nd Broughton traveled to Sanford, NC to compete in the North State High School Challenge against 11 of the best high school teams in the state at Carolina Trace Country Club taking second place to Myers Park of Charlotte by 5 strokes. Play of note for the weekend - Preyer Fountain scored his first hole-in-one on the par 3 eighth hole on Friday finishing the weekend tied for second - Will Minton, Harrison Rhoades and Court Settle all tied for 11th out of a field of 71 players. This was a great warm up for the matches ahead - the NCHSAA 4A State Championship will be contested at Carolina Trace this year and the Caps certainly mean to give it everything they have to make sure they get themselves back to Sanford to play for that State Trophy.
On Monday, March 24th....just so their clubs didn't get dusty....the Caps headed to Charlotte for the Carmel Invitational - quite an honor as only two teams from the east were invited to participate in this tournament at Carmel Country Club - one of the most beautiful courses in the state. Broughton took second place again - this time to private school Forsyth Country Day from Winston-Salem, NC. A man down with Will Minton in the clubhouse under the weather - the Caps poured it on - Preyer Fountain and Court Settle each finished the day at even par firing 72's and Harrison Rhoades shot a 75.
Tomorrow - Thursday, March 27th - Men's Golf is back in action against the CAP8 at Hedingham Golf Club in Raleigh, NC. Come see these guys play - they are fun to watch!
