The match continues a successful season for the Rebels golf team under first year coach John Cerqueira. Two weeks ago at the Joy of Golf Tournament at Wild Turkey Trace, four of the five golfers finished with personal lows, including Riley Cerqueira whose score of 80 was 11 strokes better than her previous low and Carly Durham whose 102 bested her previous low by 12 strokes. As a team, their total of 389 strokes was 36 strokes better than their previous tournament.

“We are definitely moving in the right direction,” coach Cerqueira said.

In addition to Lincoln and Boyle — Danville, Mercer County and Garrard County had golfers compete on Tuesday, but not in an official capacity. Many of the golfers across those three teams are young and are competing in their first season of golf and the coaches wanted to get them some experience under their belts.

Boyle will be in action again this weekend in a tournament in Nichollasville.
