|Chase Mayfield got even and the District 14A-AA individual championship on Tuesday. |
The South Fulton junior — who advanced to the Class A-AA State Golf Championship last year — fired an even-par 72 to claim first prize at the 14A-AA championship at The Farms in Dyersburg.
Additionally, the SF boys’ team, which compiled a 362 total, moved on to Monday’s Region 7A-AA Tournament with a third-place finish as did the Union City girls.
Lady Twister Mollie Stone highlighted said outing for her squad with a 99 — good enough for third overall.
The top three teams at the district tourney advance to the regional level along with the top five individual performers not on those squads.
That rule allowed six additional locals to advance to the regional as individual players.
Aside from Mayfield, Hunter Hutchins carded a 93 for the Red Devils, while Easton Woolf came to the clubhouse with a 97 and Hunter Faulkner contributed a 100. SF’s J.B. Graves also took to the links, but his 107 was dropped from his team’s cumulative total of 362.
Dyersburg won the boys’ championship with a 336.
The other two local guys’ teams — Obion Central (365) and Union City (378) — finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
Individually, UC’s Clay Treece was second among those not on top three teams with an 84 and a qualifier for the Region 7A-AA tourney. Twisters Britton Bugg, Turner Ams, Caleb Long and Grant Walton finished with respective totals of 95, 97, 102 and 107.
Obion Central’s Garrett Booth also earned a regional berth with a fourth-place finish among the rest of the competitors at the district tournament. Booth totaled an 89.
Cameron Green, who finished at 91, was also in the running for the fifth wildcard spot, but he lost in a playoff hole to Covington’s Craig Goforth.
Ryan Middlebrook had a 92 for OC, while Trevor Riley compiled a 93 scorecard. Tyler Wallace’s 118 was dropped for the Rebel’s team total.
On the girls’ side, Stone combined with Erica Sturkie, who shot a 122, to give Union City a 221. Lady Twister Sarah Riley played, but her 140 was not counted in her team’s total.
Dyersburg also won the girls’ district title with a 196. OC was fourth with a 249, while SF finished fifth at 264.
As a solo player, South Fulton’s McKenzie Pane punched her ticket to the regional championship as the lowest score (105) among girls not on teams that moved forward. Ashley Brooks (159) and Sara Lynn Eaves (169) both also competed for the Devilettes.
Finally, Obion Central’s Krissy Worrell, Ashlyn Runions and Samantha Wallace all earned a chance to play at next week’s regional. The OC trio was third, fourth and fifth, respectively among those not on top three teams.
Worrell finished at 123, Runions at 126 and Wallace at 127.
