BOYS GOLF

Lee Williams nips Lake Havasu

In the final match of the season, Lee Williams edged Lake Havasu 169-171 Thursday at Valle Vista Country Club.

Havasu's Eric Neal won medalist with a 37 for the nine-hole match. Lee Williams' Brandon Carver (40) was second and was followed by Corey Smith (41), Richard Serrano (42) and Cole Morton (46) to round out the Vols' scoring.

"I'm proud of the boys and their effort," said LWHS boys golf coach Stephen Shuffler. "Valle Vista is in great shape and beating Havasu is always nice."

Lee Williams is currently second in Division II, Section VII, which means the Vols may just miss the team cut for state. Smith currently is the only Vol qualified for individual state, but LWHS plays at the Mingus Invitational at the end of the week for another qualifying opportunity.
