Kraft begins first season as golf coach

The Davenport men's golf team had their best showing of the season at the Kentucky Wesleyan Invitational which concluded on Tuesday. The invitation was played at Penn Oaks Golf Club in West Chester.

Two Lancaster High golfers, Brady Hinkle and Trey Crenshaw, each shot a 77 to place in a tie for fifth with five other golfers.

"Making it to day two is a goal", he said.

Amanda Hollandsworth, a junior from Floyd, Virginia, tied for 14 individually with a three-round total of 224 and Jessica Spicer, a sophomore from Bahama, North Carolina, tied for 17 at 225.

But there are four returning players from that team, giving coach Aaron Anderson some hope that his team could be better this spring. Junior George Whitbread's final round score counted with a 6-over par, 78, shooting 230 for the event to finish 74th overall. The Bangkok, Thailand native slipped nine spots over the last 18 holes after shooting 3-over par, 75, on Tuesday for a three-day total of 218 (72-71-75), his best 54-hole score of the season.

The last place finish was the worst for the Panthers in both the fall and spring seasons. It was also his season-low round by two strokes.

Grace's Lauren Keiser finished as the runner-up on the individual leaderboard with an 81, and Sydney Abbott was third by carding an 82. Meanwhile, Peng finished second at the event, with a final score of 157 (+13).

And though he dropped down the list as the weekend wore on, the Abbotsford native - who lists South Surrey's Morgan Creek Golf Course as his home track - still finished 24th, a dozen spots higher than he did past year, in his first-ever appearance at the tournament, which is one of golf's four "majors". Millersville finished in third place.

After playing on Kinston's first golf team as sophomore, Moulton chose to turn his full attention to that sport and stepped away from also playing on the school's basketball team.

In order to shoot solid scores in upcoming tournaments, Sheehan and his teammates are trying to peak at the right time and dial in their swings for this upcoming weekend. "I told myself when we first got a team that I wanted to make it to sub-state my first year, state my junior year and win state my senior year". "If we pull together and come out strong, we can do something special".
