The Logan County High School golf teams recently wrapped up their season and freshman Sarah Fite had quite a remarkable finish to the season.

The ninth grader shot a 79 in the region tournament, which was good enough to qualify for the state tournament, which was held last week in Bowling Green.

In the state tournament, Fite shot a 10-over 82 on the first day, which was good enough to make the cut. She shot 92 in the second round and finished in a tie for 48th overall.

At the regional tournament, Fite had a strong start and was tied for the overall lead after her first nine holes with a 36.

“She shot 43 on her second nine and we were in suspense until the final scorecard came in as to whether she was going to make it or not,” said LCHS golf coach Ethan Meguiar.

The winning team was Glasgow and the runner up was Taylor County, then the top 4 golfers who are not on one of those teams gets to go to state also and Fite was one of those golfers.

“Sarah and her family are fairly new to Logan County,” Meguiar said. “She transferred here last year from Mason County and this was her first year playing golf for the Lady Cougars. She has been to the state tournament before with her former team in Mason County.”

Other girls who participated in the regional tournament for LCHS were senior Grace Harris, who shot 98, Maeson Hayes 129, Meredith Johnson 119, and Katlyn Odle 136.

The boys region golf tournament was held at Kenny Perry’s Country Creek in Franklin.

The Logan County boys team shot 334 as a team.

“That was very respectable,” Meguiar said.

The Cougars were lead by senior Carson Zibart with a 79.

Wesley Estes carded an 80, Kenton Howard had an 84, Ben Wright shot 91, and Jack Wright carded a 107.

“Carson Zibart played extremely well in his last high school match and had a real shot at qualifying for the state but came up a little short in the end,” Meguiar said.
