Foxes second at Patriot Invite

McLEANSBORO — Hamilton County’s golf team suffered just one defeat in three matches and a tournament over the past week.

Sept. 3 at home against Harrisburg and Nashville, the Foxes were led by junior Landon Vaughan, who claimed medalist honors with a score of 35 for nine holes.

Other Hamilton County scores were Jon O’Daniel’s 36, Nate Neal’s 41 and Justin Reyling’s 44.

As a team, the Foxes shot a combined 156 for the win; Harrisburg and Nashville each totaled 169.

Hamilton County next traveled to Marion to face Johnston City and finished with a team score of 171 — its season high — but still beat the Indians, who came in with 189.

Sept. 5, Hamilton County went to Benton to play Benton and Marion.

The Foxes had four scores in the 30s.

Landon Vaughan again took medalist honors for the Foxes with a 34. Hamilton County’s Grant Vaughan had his season low of 38, Neal played his best high school round of 38, and O’Daniel came in with a 39.

This time, the Foxes shot a season low of 149 for the victory; Benton and Marion each shot 157.

The match marked the first time in Hamilton County coach Terry Aud’s 12 years of coaching that the Foxes defeated Benton at Benton.

Saturday, Hamilton County’s Landon Vaughan broke a school record at the Massac County Patriot Invitational in Metropolis.

Vaughan shot a 69 to break the Hamilton County school record and tied for first in the 18-hole tournament with Massac County’s Zach Burnham. Vaughan then won the playoff with a birdie on the first hole.

Overall, the Foxes shot a 307, good for second place. Host Massac County won the tourney with a 294.

Other Foxes scores were O’Daniel and Neal each with 79 and Reyling with an 80.

“I wish the team could have shaved a few strokes, but we got beat by a good team on their home course,” Landon Vaughan said.

“I felt like we played very well,” Neal added. “307 is a solid score, but Massac came in very low.”

The Foxes golf team is now 48-6 overall.
