The Northfield golf team placed third Saturday at the Jeremy Cole Invite. Oak Hill won the invite with a 321, with Maconaquah took second with 325 and the Norse third with 326. Manchester was 9th and Southwood 10th.

“Honeywell Golf Course was in great shape today and the weather was near perfect. There were some really good teams playing here today, and their scores and individual scores reflected it,” said Coach Terrell.

“I think the guys played very well today. They all had a couple holes that they didn’t score well on, but they fought through it. We had two guys medal today (top 8) Braydon and Austin, and Andrew just missed it by a stroke. We have been working on our short game, and I believe it is paying off,” added Coach Terrell.
