FAIRFIELD GLADE – Hendersonville High junior Bryce Lewis won medalist honors at the Golf Capital of Tennessee High School Invitational, which was held on Saturday and Sunday at Heatherhurst Golf Club.
Lewis shot a 137 total (70-67), finishing two strokes better than Briarcrest’s Zachary Bailey (67-71). Lewis – a Middle Tennessee State commitment who won the Tennessean/Metro Parks Schooldays Golf Tournament in June and the Baylor Preview earlier this month – made 11 birdie putts over the two rounds.
Receiving invitations among the boys’ field were the top three teams from 2015 in each of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association’s four classifications in golf, though all could not attend.
Hendersonville placed fourth as a team, one shot in front of both Father Ryan and Sullivan South and 11 back of champion Briarcrest, which finished six strokes better than second-place Baylor.
Franklin Road Academy and Lipscomb Academy placed seventh and eighth, respectively.
Junior Palmer Sadlowski (75-70) led Father Ryan, while sophomore Josh Holtschlag (75-74) paced FRA.
Father Ryan’s girls placed third, one shot behind Dobyns-Bennett and 16 back of champion Farragut.
Father Ryan junior Liv Cunningham (87-76) and senior teammate Aubrey Frantz (82-87) placed fourth and fifth, individually.
