RUTHERFORDTON – The Cherokee Braves ended their 2015 campaign at the 1A West NCHSAA Regional golf tournament at the Meadowbrook Golf Club on Tuesday, May 5. Cherokee junior Christian Ensley fired an 83 on the 6,400 yard par-72 course to lead the Braves and finished in a six-way tie for 10th place in the individual category.
“Overall, I was pleased with how we played,” said Braves Head Coach Andrew Maney. “Christian played about as well as we could have expected and missed making the state qualifier by two strokes.”
The Braves finished the tournament with a total team score of 413 with John Lossiah (109), Steven Straughan (110), Holden Straughan (111), and Josh Taylor (114) also contributing to Ensley’s 83.
