Golf roundup: Brentwood teams sweep Region six, Dickson County bows out

By

Brentwood’s golf teams came in and completed the sweep at Greystone Tuesday, as the Bruins took home Region 6-AAA team titles in both the boys and girls division at the region tournament. Both will also be playing at the Class AAA state tournament next week at WillowBrook in Manchester.

The boys team shot a 288, while the girls shot a 163.

Michael Shears shot the lowest round of all competitors on the day with a 64, as he took home the individual gold medal. Ravenwood’s Ann Catherine Blackburn took home the gold medal for the girls with a 76.

Dickson County coach Jay Powlas expressed his gratitude for allowing Greystone to host the region tournament, as it allows for great exposure to Dickson.

“We’ve been fortunate enough that Bob and Valerie Wolcott and the staff here have let us use this course the last six years for the district and region (tournaments),” said Jay Powlas

“They do a wonderful job of organizing it, making sure there’s food and carts for the parents. It always runs without a hitch. We’re thankful for them. I think it represents our county well, the course does, when people can come in and see we have a top-notch facility. It’s good for Greystone, Dickson County and Dickson County High School.”

For the Cougars, it was the end of their season. Annie Garrett shot a 105 to close out her senior year. Ty Beasley shot an 84.

“It hurts knowing it’s her last high school match, but she did work hard and qualify for region, so there’s nothing she can hang her head about,” said Powlas.

“(Beasley’s) just learning about everything in high school. He’s only 14. He has all the ability, and I think he’ll be back here next year.”

Williams in top 15 going into day two:  Creek Wood’s Cindy Williams finished the first day of the Class A-AA state tournament with a score of 83. Williams had a tough back nine, shooting +7 after the turn. She currently sits in 14th place, 12 strokes behind the leader. Hannah Bratton of Trinity Christian currently leads with a score of 74.
