The Catoosa County News - - WORSHIP DIRECTORY - By Scott Herpst

The host LaFayette Ram­blers was the only team in the 17-team field to post a score un­der 300 at the LaFayette Golf Course this past Satur­day as they won the 2017 LaFayette In­vi­ta­tional.

LaFayette’s turned in four scores of 77 or bet­ter and fin­ished with a 298 to win the tour­na­ment by five shots. Class A pri­vate school stal­wart First Pres­by­te­rian Day made the long drive up from Ma­con and placed sec­ond at 303, while Ft. Payne, Ala. went home with a third-place fin­ish at 317.

Gage Smith led the Ram­blers with a 72 and fin­ished as the tour­na­ment’s in­di­vid­ual run­ner-up, while Cole In­gram was a shot back at 73. Carter Grant fired a 76 and Matthew In­gram came in at 77 to round out the team score.

FPD was the only other school to post four scores in the 70’s. They were led by Wes­ley Han­son, who earned a spot on the five-man All-Tour­na­ment Team, along with Smith and In­gram.

The other two spots went to low medal­ist Har­ri­son Davis of Ft. Payne (71) and his team­mate Daw­son Gar­rett (74).

Her­itage, the lone Ca­toosa County school in the field, fin­ished 15th over­all at 371. The Gen­er­als were led by Matthew Red­man’s 89, fol­lowed by Lo­gan Self (91), Pa­trick Red­man (91), Trevor Bada­cour (100), Sam Wil­liams (100) and Luke Bussey (100).

Gavin Noble shot a 36 this past Thurs­day, in­clud­ing a chip-in ea­gle on No. 4, and the Ring­gold High School boys’ golf team opened the 2017 sched­ule with a team score of 183 for nine holes at Wind­stone.

Joseph Taylor added a 41 for the Blue-and-White, fol­lowed by a 52 from Nick Lo­boda and a 54 from Jerin Mor­gan.
