CLOVERDALE -- Freshman Chris Arnold's low-round of 40 led Cloverdale over visiting West Vigo and Eminence Monday night at Clover Meadows. The Clovers won with a low total of 169, with West Vigo second with 216 and Eminence in third with 264.
Arnold is proving himself to be one of the Clovers big threats early in the season. In two outings this season, Arnold has led CHS in scoring.
"Freshman Chris Arnold followed his 78 Saturday with another nice round," CHS head coach Doug Wokoun said. "We are pleased with the start he has gotten, and his contribution will be valuable from this point forward."
The Clovers placed ninth at the Northview Invitational over the weekend, which resulted in disappointment in the clubhouse. Wokoun pointed out that the team is still sorting things out and their belief in themselves will help them turn the corner.
"We had a lot of disappointed players yesterday, because they know they are capable of much better scoring," Wokoun commented. "It is still very early, and finding consistency of play is a key for us. But we have a lot of reasons to be optimistic, and a number of players who may find a way into the mix before we are done.
"We have a very competitive group and I expect that the competition for spots on the varsity squad will be pretty heated all season," he concluded.
Cloverdale (2-0) hosts Linton at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
