Pike Liberal Arts School golfers Braden Prestwood and Jackson Cleveland have both been named to the AHSAA Golf South All-Star Team, while Pike coach Gene Allen was also named to the South All-Star coaching staff.

Prestwood and Cleveland led the Patriots to a third overall finish in the AHSAA 1A/2A State Championship Meet in the school’s inaugural season as a part of the AHSAA. Prestwood also finished third overall individually – shooting 154 – in his first appearance in the AHSAA State Tournament. The Patriots earned a first place finish at the 1A/2A Sub-State Meet before heading to state. Prestwood also earned individual medalist, coming in first place, at the 1A/2A Golf Sectionals, as well.

Not only do Prestwood, Cleveland and Allen become Pike Lib’s first golf AHSAA All-Stars, but they are the first Patriots in any sport to earn North-South All-Star honors since the move to AHSAA.
