High 2013 SPC Champions
The 2013 SPC Regular Season Champion was to be decided
this afternoon at The Club at Irish Creek. Going into
this match Concord High and JM Robinson were the clear
leaders for the top spot, but Cox Mill and Hickory
Ridge were not about to let this be an easy ending.
Cox Mill came out as a team and had their best match
of the season. Led by senior Austin Albers’ 37 (his
best match of his 4-year career at Cox Mill) with
Justin Westveer’s 39, Dominic Andrew’s 40 and Jake
Phillps’ 42, Cox Mill won the final match with a total
158. This first place finish secures third place in
the conference team race and a spot at the State
Regional Tournament. Four strokes back at 162 was
Hickory Ridge. Sophomore Davis Kiger again led the
Hickory Ridge team and was the Match Medalist with a
solid 36. Contributing to Hickory Ridge’s lowest
season score were Smit Savani 41, Brody Davis 42 and
Brendan Galloway 43. Hickory Ridge finished fourth in
the conference and will also be headed to the regional
tournament. Despite today’s great effort by Cox Mill
and Hickory Ridge, the battle for the top spot was
still between Concord and JM Robinson.
The winner of the 2013 SPC Regular Season Championship
is Concord High. Today’s match total of 165 and a
third place finish was enough to secure the
championship. This makes them the top seed for the
April 29th conference tournament and also
qualifies them for the State Regional Tournament.
Freshman Walker Cress was again the team low with a
38. This keeps him in the lead for the individual
title with the two nines of the conference tournament
left to decide that battle. The Concord team includes
Marshall Cromer (44), Maverick Chunn (DNP), John Eury
(47), Blain Laszlo (43), Seth Roberts (40), Ethan
Wilder (50), Zayne Wilson (DNP) and Bain Wright (DNP).
Concord has led the team battle for most of the season
winning four of the eight matches with two seconds and
two thirds. Taking second was the very strong JM
Robinson team. Senior AT Cashwell led the team again
today with a 39 as he continues to battle for the
individual title. The JM Robinson team includes Trent
Jones (43), Chris Johnson (44), Zack Boatwright (42),
Brooks Jones (DNP), Amos Capps Jr. (43), Josh Iamarsh
(DNP), Alex Jones (47), and Travis Chumley (DNP).
Over the season, JM Robinson won three matches, three
seconds and two fourths.
The battle for the individual title is still too close
to call. Each of the top four teams has a player in
this battle. Currently, Concord’s Walker Cress is in
first place. Walker’s season total 262 is two strokes
ahead of Hickory Ridge’s Davis Kiger and JM Robinson’s
AT Cashwell. In fourth place, another stroke back, is
the 2012 MVP from Cox Mill, Justin Westveer. These
four will continue to fight for the top spot at the
conference tournament, which will count as the final
two nine-hole matches in the race for the MVP.
