On Monday, April 1, the Pike Liberal Arts golf team hosted a number of schools from the area in a golf tournament at Troy Country Club.

Pike Lib’s Avery Greene was the medalist for the girls team.

The Pike Lib boys shot 294 in the tournament, which head coach Gene Allen said was one of the best the team has shot “in years”. That still wasn’t good enough, however, as Montgomery Academy came in first place with a score of 293 just barely edging out Pike Lib. Previously, Pike Lib knocked off Montgomery Academy in Montgomery on March 7.

Braden Prestwood was the medalist for the tournament, shooting 66, while Jackson Cleveland shot a 78, Sawyer Keck shot 74, Ford Hussey shot 76 and Bryant Swindall shot 79.
