The All-County championships included four nine-hole rounds at different courses before returning to Alamance Country Club for the 18-hole finale. Williams had a cumulative score of 1,015, ahead of Southern (1,044), defending champion Western (1,065) and Eastern Alamance (1,111).

“It was a good day and good conditions,” Williams coach Tommy Cole said.


In the individual standings, each golfer’s worst nine-hole score is dropped, so a golfer’s total includes 45 holes.

Wilson’s all-county total was 184, with Eastern’s Gryffin Brehler the runner-up at 184 following his 85 on Tuesday. Wilson was two shots behind Brehler entering this week, but he strung together three consecutive birdies to help charge to the top.

Christos Katsoudas of Williams shot 80 for third place Tuesday. He was third overall at 198.

Harless, who had his best outing with the Bulldogs on Tuesday, was fourth in the all-county competition at 208, while teammate Jon Pellerito had 87 for a 212 total for fifth overall.
Cole said Katsoudas dealt with a wrist injury, but posted a 2-over score on the backside.
“He fought hard just to survive,” Cole said. “That’s the team aspect.”

Southern’s top golfer was Lacy Carroll, whose 86 in the final round put him at 213 in sixth place for the five-week tournament.

The top 12 were designated as all-county, so the seventh through 12th place went to Southern’s Jay Van Hamby (214) and Landen Linch (217), Eastern’s Max Brehler (217), Williams’ Blake Saunders (218), Southern’s Luke Greiner (220) and Williams’ Tim Klein (224).

Golfers in the top 10 for Tuesday’s round also included Max Brehler (85), Linch (87), Van Hamby (87) and Southern’s Logan Foust (87).
