YADKINVILLE — North Surry golf improved on the second day of back-to-back tournaments.

Football coach Danny Lyons has taken over a young golf team that played Tuesday at Cross Creek and Wednesday at Yadkin Country Club.

Forbush ran away with the top score, shooting a 152 to best Ledford by nine strokes in the nonconference match.

West Forsyth finished third with a 164. Wilkes Central was fourth at 166. North Surry was next at 184, then Starmount at 197.

While most events have six-man teams, with only the top four scores counting, this tournament had five players for each of the eight teams.

Tuesday’s top Greyhound was Caleb Cooke with a 45, but in Yadkinville Cooke struggled a little and dropped back to a 52, said Lyons.

Still, his teammates picked up the slack, allowing North Surry to finish 11 strokes better than Tuesday.

Three Hounds broke 50, led by Taylor Solomon at 42, which tied for 13th out of 40 golfers.

Evan Marion shot 43, good for 15th. Freshman Austin Smith shot 47, and Cooke had his 52.

On Monday, the Hounds will play at Silo Run in Boonville.
