Crocker to play in golf tournament

UNION COUNTY — For the Union County High School Varsity Boys Golf Team the season ended this past Monday but for one member of the team it will continue as an individual competitor in an upcoming tournament.

The Yellow Jackets were one of five teams to compete in the Region 2 4A Tournament at Links O’Tryon Monday morning. The other teams in the tournament were Blue Ridge, Travelers Rest, Eastside, and Greer.

Blue Ridge won Monday’s tournament which saw the Yellow Jackets come up four strokes short. Monday’s loss means the season is over for the team.

It is not, however, over for one Yellow Jacket.

While the team itself will go no further this season, Yellow Jacket Trenton Crocker will be playing in Monday’s Upperstate Tournament at Southern Oaks in Easley.

Crocker gained himself a place in the tournament as an individual player by scoring an 82 in Monday’s competition, the lowest of any member of the team.

The other low scores for the UCHS team at this past Monday’s game were:

• Garrett Alexander — 83

• Riley Pittman — 90

• Lucas Austin — 95
