The Carroll County Amateur golf tournament dealt with a rainout Monday for the second time in as many years, but unlike last summer a makeup date is in place.
The 18-hole stroke-play tournament at Piney Branch Golf Club is reset for Aug. 6.
Piney Branch head pro Jeff Zachman said this year’s tourney was set to include more than 50 players (he had about 40 ready to play last year). But after more than 6 inches of rain fell on the course over the weekend, Zachman said, Piney Branch was closed Monday.
The amateur will feature four flights — men’s championship, men’s amateur, men’s senior, and women’s amateur.
Zachman said the tournament has extended the deadline for entries, and anyone interested in playing has until July 31 to sign up.
Entry fee is $70 and includes golf, carts, prizes, and lunch. Call 410-239-7115 for more information.
Pair of Owls land on all-state lax teams
Westminster’s boys lacrosse team garnered some representation on the Maryland State Lacrosse Coaches Association’s all-state teams.
Senior midfielder Christian Etchison and junior goalie Logan Covey each earned spots on the MLSCA public school all-state squad.
Etchison, the reigning Times Player of the Year, had 36 goals and 34 assists to finish second in scoring for Westminster. Etchison added 56 ground balls for the Owls, who won county, region, and state championships this spring.
Covey earned Times first-team all-county honors this spring after leading Carroll with 201 saves. Covey crafted a .630 save percentage, and made 11 saves in the Class 3A state final.
