Rock Hill golfers continue improvement

PEDRO -- Getting even means getting better.

The Rock Hill Redmen evened their golf record at 5-5 and coach Jerry Evans said his team is progressing.

"The kids are playing better, but the scores don't reflect it yet," Evans said. "The kids are playing hard. They're really young, but they're really into it. We're looking forward to the second half of the season and seeing some serious improvement."

The Redmen played in a quad match last Wednesday at Riverbend in Wheelersburg. South Webster won with a 167 team score, followed by Portsmouth Notre Dame at 174, Rock Hill had a 197, and Minford shot a 210.

Rock Hill was led by Tyler Jayne with a 42 and Brandon Medinger carded a 44. Notre Dame's Charlie Doll was medalist with a 37.

On Thursday at The Oaks in Flatwoods, Ky.,

Russell beat the Redmen 177 to 207.

Jayne again led the Redmen with a 44. Russell's Aaron Whitaker shot a 41.

"We're without our third man right now. We should be better when we get back to full strength," Evans said.

The Redmen play Portsmouth and Northwest Wednesday at the Portsmouth Elks, then face Ironton and Fairland Thursday at the Ironton Country Club.
