Clovers victorious in quad meet
SULLIVAN -- The Clovedale boys' golf team downed three competitors Thursday night to grab its eighth victory on the year. Cloverdale finished first with a score of 174, Sullivan was second due to a fifth-card tie-breaker with 181 points, White River Valley was third with 181 and Owen Valley was fourth with 195.
For the Clovers, Michael Glassburn scored a match-low 38 to gain medalist honors. Kevin Gregg scored a 41 to slide into second position.
Sean Rhine shot a 46, Justin Hacker shot a 49 and Mike Wellington shot a 52.
"Michael (Glassburn) played very well on a course none of us had ever seen before," coach Doug Wokoun said. "We struggled with the dormant Bermuda grass, uneven terrain and old growth trees.
"Kevin (Gregg) had a great round going through seven holes and had a few obstacles at the end."
Cloverdale will travel and face Clay City Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.

Tiger Cub golf loses at Cascade
CLAYTON -- The Cascade Cadets slipped past the Greencastle boys' golf team for first place Thursday night on the road. Cascade scored a 165, while Greencastle nipped at them with a 166 and Monrovia was third with 183.
"Even though 166 isn't a very good score, I wasn't as upset about it as I would typically be," GHS coach Donovan Wheeler said. "For one thing, the boys did scrap and fight to salvage something with their scores, and that counts for something. They weren't good scores, but they weren't the train wrecks we were dealing with on other nights, either.
David Lilly led the Tiger Cub charge with a team-low 40 and had a pack of Tiger Cubs in line behind him.
Luke Crimmins was Greencastle's second lowest scorer with 41, Wade Huber was close behind with a 42 and Nick Pritchard rounded out the GHS scoring with a 43.
Huber seemed to get no help from the course and had to battle all round long, an achievement was impressed by.
"I was particularly impressed with Wade's score," Wheeler said. "His game was giving him absolutely nothing. He was in some sort of trouble on every hole, but he made it a point to simply will a usable number out of a difficult performance."
Other members of the Tiger Cubs posting scores were Tyler Wade with a 45, Ryan Young with a 48 and Kyle Harlan with a 51.
Cascade provide the medalist in the event, as Anthony Arthur scored a 39.
"Next week will be interesting for us. Jacob Collins comes back from the band trip, and Eric Davis will be eligible after we finish Monday's Northview match. When they come back, we're looking a six guys seriously competing for those five spots.
