MADISONVILLE — After shooting combined 59-over-par in Monday's 18-hole Bradley Invitational, the Walker Valley boys were just a half dozen shots over par in a nine-hole, three-way match against Sequoyah and Tellico Plains.
Playing the Madisonville Golf Club, the Mustangs posted a 150 team total to hold off the District 5 foe Chiefs by seven strokes and the Small-class Bears by 24.
Three-time TSSAA state participant Dalton Sutton, who shot nine-hole tallies of 1-over 37 and 3-over 39 at the Cleveland Country Club Monday, smoked the Madisonville layout with a 3-under-par 33 for low-medalist honors.
"He could've shot a 30. Had a three-putt and missed two six-footers," related Walker Valley head coach Will Campbell.
Despite his great half-round, Sutton only earned low-medalist by a single stroke as Sequoyah's No. 1 player was right on his heels with a 2-under 34 and Tellico's top guy shot even par.
Helping out the Herd victory was senior David Dansby and freshman Ian Kinsey, who both fired 1-over 37s.
Junior Koleman Leslie rounded out the winning tally with a 43.
Freshman Elisha Silver and junior Sammy Bain carded 44s in support, while junior Madden Snyder posted a 46.
Although Allie Oliver was the lone Lady Mustang, she earned low-medalist honors over the Sequoyah and Tellico duos. The junior Fillie shot a 47, to nip her cloest competition by two strokes.
Walker Valley will return to the links Monday, joining Bradley Central and Cleveland in a trip to the annual Cookeville Invitational at Tennessee Tech's Golden Eagle course.
The Bear and Raider teams will also journey across the state line to the Windstone layout in Ringgold, Ga., to take on East Hamilton Thursday.
