• Northwest Whitfield’s boys team completed its two-day, 36-hole outing at the Hardaway Invitational at Bull Creek Golf Course in Columbus and had two individuals shoot in the seventies in the second round.
Chad Flanders and Ethan Hayes each shot a 78 for the Bruins, who scored a 328 as a unit. Tyler Clayton (85) and Chandler Lomax (87) also had scoring rounds for Northwest. Northwest coach Greg Brown said there were 21 teams.
“I’d say we were probably between 12th and 14th,” Brown said of the team’s finish. “Not far from the middle of the pack.”
