On the boys side, Dustin Travis won for the third straight week in 15-18. He shot 1-over 73 and edged Caleb McKinney (for the second week in a row) by a shot and his White Plains teammate Trevor Lane by three. Jacob Lecroy, playing up in age after two dominant showings in 11-14, was fourth at 77.

Nathan Griffin (90) won for the first time in boys 11-14, by a shot over Cameron McCareeth.

They chipped in three times in the round ‹ once for birdie, twice for eagle. They had three eagles total.

ACES IN THE CROWD: Derrick Cotton scored his second hole-in-one within a month last week when he aced the 169-yard second hole – again -- at Stoney

Brook Golf Course. This time he used a pitching wedge to a front pin location. The shot was witnessed by Jerry Allen, Danny Craven, Milton Harris and Brady Turner.

• Lewis Roberts aced No. 17 at Cider Ridge Golf Club from the II tees.

The shot was witnessed by Jim Catush.

• Not a hole-in-one, but Oxford 14-year-old Jacob Vaughn scored back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15 at Cane Creek in a round with his grandfather, Ralph. Jacob is going into 10th grade and plays for the Oxford golf team.
