Prep golf: DHS, rain steady for Nob Invite

With the Region 7-4A tournament scheduled for Tuesday at Nob North Golf Club, Dalton coach Hunter Johnston was pleased that his team finally got its first victory of the season Saturday in Cohutta at the Nob North Invitational.

Battling through a steady rain on the par 72 course, the Catamounts shot a team total of 315 to win after a couple of second-place finishes this season.

“We finally got that first-place finish we have been looking for all season,” Johnston said. “We were not expecting the rain, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it might have been. The rain really wasn’t that much of a factor. I was very pleased with our guys. The best thing is to carry some momentum to the region tournament. Even with a first-place finish, they felt like they left a lot of shots out there.”

Steady was the key word for the Cats, who placed all four of their counting scores at 80 or better in the six-play, four-count format. Landon Hicks lead the team with a 4-over 76, followed by Davis Kirk (79), Jacob Brown (80) and Addison Lambert (80).

Northwest Whitfield finished seventh in the 13-team tournament, shooting a 337. Chad Flanders and Ethan Hayes each shot 82, followed by Chandler Lomax (85) and Tyler Clayton (88). Coahulla Creek, which finished third at the Region 5-3A tournament last week, shot a 349. David Manis and Walt Douglas each shot 85, followed by Brannon Wilson (89) and Alec Longmire (90).
