“One of the good things we have done as a team this year is play better the second day of the tournament,” said Coach Zach Smith.  “Which is really good because we were down by four strokes after the first day of play on Sunday.  It is exciting for these students to have their fifth consecutive win.”

Freshman Harry Walch won the tournament with scores of 75-78, 153.  This is the second tournament win in a row for Walch who is from Staines, England.

“McCook has a very challenging golf course so I was happy to walk away with a win,” said Coach Zach Smith.  “It’s very hilly which challenges our players physically and mentally.  It was great to have Harry win back-to-back tournaments.  Once again, it took a total team effort to pull off the win.  I am proud of the team.”
