Trojans finish seventh in opener

Glasgow boys one back in eighth

GLASGOW — The Barren County High School Trojans opened the 2012-13 golf season on Monday at the Cumberland County Golf Invitational at Dale Hollow State Park. BCHS played well, finishing seventh out of 22 teams, but coach Robert Bauer felt like his team just wasn’t clicking on all cylinders. The Trojans, he felt, could have probably finished much higher than seventh.

“I think there were some opportunities out on the course that we didn’t take advantage of,” Bauer explained. “But, because it was the first tournament of the year, I am pleased with our effort.”

Matt Turner led the Trojans in scoring with a 75. Nathan Layton was not too far back, finishing the round in 79.

Andy Highbaugh shot a very good 84 and Mark Shipley posted an 89.

Garrett Wyatt rounded out the scoring for the Trojans with a 93.

Bauer said the Trojans’ effort Monday was impressive when comparing Barren County to other regional teams competing in the tournament.

“Of all the teams from our region competing in the tournament, we finished second,” Bauer said. “So, that’s a very good sign.”

The coach also said he was impressed with the effort of Turner, something he hopes he sees from the talented golfer all year long.

“Matt was 4-under at one time during the round,” Bauer said. “That’s very impressive. I thought he played extremely well.

“He had a bad hole early in the round, but Matt didn’t let that define his round for the day.”

Bauer and the Trojans have a busy week ahead of them.

Barren County will host Grayson County on Tuesday at Barren River State Park.

And then on Wednesday, the Trojans will visit Glasgow for the final round of the two team’s Cup Series.

That match will start at 4 p.m. at the Glasgow Golf and Country Club.
