’Toppers finish fifth in state golf

Science Hill came up 13 strokes short in the TSSAA Class AAA state golf championships at WillowBrook Golf Club in Manchester on Wednesday.
After an opening-day 301, the Hilltopper followed it up with a 305. The total of 606 was off the pace of Murfreesboro Siegel, which shot a 593.
Heading into the 15th hole on Wednesday, Science Hill head coach Kevin Vannoy said his team was still in contention for a title.
“That last little stretch got us,” said Vannoy. “But we gave our best effort. I’m proud of what the guys accomplished. We gave ourselves a chance.”
Drew Poland was blistering the course at 5-under par heading into the 16th hole. But a shot strayed six inches out of bounds, and he triple-bogeyed the hole. He finished bogey, bogey and had to settle for a 72.
Poland’s two-day total of 147 was one stroke away from a top-10 finish. He wound up in a tie for 11th.
Andrew Simonsen finished at 150, tied for 20th. Peter Chang followed up a 72 with an 83.
Knox Farragut’s Stuart Thomas earned the individual title, beating Siegel’s Arjuna Anday and Dickson County’s Ben Wolcott in a playoff. All three finished at 140.
On the girls’ side, Science Hill’s Allison Woodward finished tied for sixth. She shot 78-77 for 155. Clarksville’s Samantha Gotcher won with a 141.
