The Marion County High School boys' golf team showcased new talent on the varsity squad on Saturday during the Tates Creek Invitational as the Knights shot a team score of 333.

Aaron Hamilton, Logan Medley and Korey Hundley hit the links for the Knights in the tournament as the team was without number three and four golfers Brian Loper and Blair Gorley.

According to Knights Head Coach Freddie Leathers, Taylor Brady and Joseph Elder both finished in the top 10 individually and both had a chance late in their rounds to win or tie for the medalist honors: the winning score was 72. Elder was one under par with only three holes to go and three putted from four feet for a double bogey on his 16th hole. Brady four putted his 17th hole for a double bogey after being aggressive with his first putt from 15 feet for a birdie.

Elder finished fourth overall with a 74 while Brady finished sixth overall with a 75.

"Both golfers played well and they should be proud of their performances," Leathers said.

Hundley finished with an 87 while Logan Medley fired a 97.
