The Choctaw County High School golf team has continued to shoot scores just above the 200 mark and that was good enough to win two of the three matches it played last week.

The Chargers shot a 201 last Monday to take a 12-stroke win in the Winona Invitational. Winona was second with a 213, while East Webster carded a 216. Kent Vaughn of CCHS fired a 42 to take medalist honors in the event, while Dylan Jones posted a 47, Adam Threadgill a 55 and Kindal Gammill a 57.Tres Gammill finished with a 58.

The Chargers travelled to West Point on Tuesday for another 9-hole match and fired a 203 to take a narrow one-stroke win over the host Green Wave. East Webster was third with a 212. Vaughn once again took medalist honors by firing a 45, while Jones shot a 48, Adam Threadgill a 53, Tres Gammill a 57 and Kindal Gammill a 61.

While Choctaw County shot a 202 in a match at Columbus on Thursday, the competition was stiff as host Caledonia shot a 161 and Amory fired a 176. Vaughn led Choctaw County with a 40, while Threadgill and Jones each had 52s, Kindal Gammill a 63 and Tres Gammill a 58.

“We are being consistent, but we need to get those scores down below 200 if we can,” said CCHS head coach Gary Beals.
