OLD HICKORY — Friendship Christian golfer Bo Gwynne qualified for the TSSAA Division II state tournament as an individual Monday during a regional tournament at Old Hickory Country Club.

Gwynne shot a 76 to finish among the top three individuals not on a top-three team.

As it was, the Commanders missed joining Gwynne at state by five strokes. Their 329 was just outside the top three posted by Battle Ground Academy [314], Knoxville Webb [316] and Franklin Road Academy [324] which qualified for the Sept. 23-24 state tournament at Willowbrook in Manchester.

Like his team, Gwynne finished fourth overall as the players ahead of him play for state-bound teams. BGA's Winn Temple won with a 72.

Ryan Tomlinson turned in an 82 for Friendship while Austin Graves garnered an 85, Sam Gatlin 86 and Drew Porth 92. Tomlinson, Graves and Porth scored personal bests for the Old Hickory course.

Mt. Juliet Christian fired a 413.

The Commanders, in their first season in D-II, finished the season 8-2 in head-to-head matches for their third straight winning season.


Lebanon beats Beech to end season


Lebanon swept visiting Beech to end the regular golf season Tuesday at Lebanon Golf & Country Club.

The Blue Devils won 332-358 while the Devilettes prevailed 184-205.

Hunter Ashworth led a consistent Lebanon attack with an 82 while J.C. McDearman and Charlie Booher each bagged an 83 and Clay Alden Palmer and Jacob Felkins finished at 84 apiece.

On the girls' side, Lebanon's Caroline Hendrick and Ryann Hallums both notched 92s.

"I'm very proud of the direction the team is moving in," Lebanon coach Cory Walker said. "We finished the regular season very consistent. Several of our kids are shooting in the same score range.

"We are looking forward to the district tournament next Tuesday at Pine Creek. I think our best scoring still yet to come."
