Spain Park boys golf put together two great days at Hampton Cove in Huntsville and won the Class 7A boys state championship by 14 strokes over Fairhope. The title was the Jags’ fourth in the past five years, and puts the overall total at seven.
“These guys really did a great job preparing for this tournament with the three practice round we played the days leading up to the state tournament,” head coach Brian Carter said.
Landon Carner fired a second-round 69 to lead the Jags, matching Thomas Luther’s number from the first round. The two were the only competitors to shoot a sub-70 round in the tournament.
Carner finished just a single stroke behind the individual champion, Austin Coggin of Vestavia Hills. Miller and Luther tied for fourth overall.
“We had a great plan going in that each guy felt comfortable with and they really attacked the golf course that best suited their specific golf game,” Carter said.
Reed Hereford finished 13th, shooting a 73 each day. Nick Robillard tied for 14th, rebounding from a 75 to shoot a 73, for a total of 148.
“I am so proud of these guys for achieving another state championship for Spain Park. They now get to put their names into an elite group of great teams that have played here before them and help carry on a legacy of dominant golf,” Carter said.
