Green Forest- 1- Nathan Shaw- 51; 2- Michael Grigg- 58; 3- Eric Holderfield- 63.

Highlander coach Aaron Hall said, "Dustin Morrell had a pretty decent score for a sophomore. It was solid, respectable, the second best score. Nick Bower, a ninth-grader, has ability. They're all getting better. I expect our three lowest scores to shave at least three strokes off by district.
"The girls, we have two around 100. Laura Winters shot 47 for nine holes, which is 94 for 18 holes, and Emily Payne shot 55, a 110. Those are good scores. Colleen, a ninth-grader, that 60 was a good score. Kimberlie was disappointed, but had some penalty strokes or would have been right in there."
Tiger coach Kyle Farrar said, "The weather was nice, not like our first three matches. The fairways were real nice. The kids played really well. There were a lot of nice scores."
