Marietta - Senior night at the Marietta Country Club meant a lot for the Marietta Tiger golfers, as they did battle against rival Warren. In a tight Wednesday evening contest, the Warriors ended that special night on a down for the home team with a 169-173 win.
The four-stroke victory was earned by the slimmest of margins, and performances from a couple of Warren’s top golfers sealed the deal. Warren’s No. 3, Caleb Davis, shined in the 6-on-6 format.
He led all participants with a low back nine of 36. After his round, he talked about what worked for him on a hot day where he turned up the heat on Tiger golfers.
“Well, I was just playing really relaxed like coach (Nathan Evans) said,” Davis remarked. “I hit some really good shots, and it built up my confidence. It builds my confidence going into the postseason, but I know I’ve got to help my teammates get to where we can all be to win a state championship.”
Speaking of his teammates, Seth Dennis and Chance Weihl contributed rounds that helped make the difference. Dennis’s 41 mirrored the identical score of Marietta senior Josh Sandford in the one-spot. Senior Justin Hartley edged out Weihl’s performance (44) with a 43, but Warren’s depth proved too costly for the Tigers.
