• Dalton’s boys shot a 316 in the final round of the North Georgia Invitational to finish at 643 and place third behind Peachtree Ridge and Harrison in the nine-team tournament.

The Catamounts opened with a 327 last week at Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville. Tuesday’s 18 holes were played at The Farm Golf Club in Rocky Face, and Davis Kirk’s 5-over 77 led Dalton, which also got scoring rounds from Landon Hicks (78), Allen Behr (79) and Jacob Brown (82). Kirk made the all-tournament team with a total score of 159.

Northwest shot a 356 after a 358 in the first round for a combined score of 714 and seventh-place finish. Ethan Hayes shot an 81 for the Bruins, who also had scoring rounds from Chad Flanders (82), Chandler Lomax (95) and Tyler Clayton (98).

Christian Heritage carded a 433 in the second round after a 453 in the first and finished at 886. Blake Harper’s 84 was the best round on Tuesday for the Lions, who also had counting rounds from Kyle Stanley (94), Hutch Swafford (120) and Tyler Tipton (135).

• Murray County’s boys finished last in a three-team nine-hole match with Pickens and host Sonoraville at Fields Ferry Golf Course in Calhoun, with Sonoraville winning with a 167 ahead of Pickens (181) and Murray County (262).
