Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - SPORTS - By Mark Humphrey

FARM­ING­TON — The Car­di­nal boys golf team won their first five meets of the sea­son head­ing into Mon­day’s com­pe­ti­tion they hosted at Val­ley View Golf Course in Farm­ing­ton.

Seven boys are out for golf with a quar­tet of fresh­men play­ing var­sity: Rhett South, Lan­don Lawson, Dakota Bo­gan, and Clay­ton An­twine.

Ju­nior var­sity mem­bers in­clude: Cody Bal­lard, sopho­more; Jonathan Brye, sopho­more; and Tren­ton Sisco, sopho­more.

Fresh­man Bai­ley Cuz­ick is the only girl out.

On Tues­day, Sept. 4, at Oak Ridge, Farm­ing­ton placed first with a team score of 239 ahead of Gravette and Pea Ridge, which tied for sec­ond place with 257 while Huntsville fin­ished fourth with 285. Three years ago Randy Osnes had a con­ver­sa­tion with Rhett’s dad, who in­formed the Farm­ing­ton coach that his son was pretty good. He’s liv­ing up to that billing.

Rhett South shot a 71 with Lawson at 80, Bo­gan, 88; and An­twine, 118. The tough­est com­peti­tors were Cato from Pea Ridge, 79; Jesse Frye, of Gravette, 80; and Bray­ton Mulden, of Gravette, with 80.

“We’ve been to five meets and won all five of them,” said Farm­ing­ton coach Randy Osnes. “Rhett has been the medal­ist in all five of them.”

The team has been com­pet­ing since the last week of July and Osnes says they are an en­joy­able group.

“They’re just all good golfers to be­gin with,” Osnes said. “Th­ese young men, they live it, they sleep it. They thor­oughly en­joy be­ing around all their team­mates. Be­ing fresh­men their over­all goal is to make it to state as fresh­men play­ing high school golf.”
