The Grant County High School boy s golf team beat Pendleton County last week in a heavy, rain-soaked match.
Cody Kellam led the Braves with an even par on the back nine holes at Eagle Creek on Aug. 21
Kellam, a sophomore, is the Braves leading golfer. He shot a 35.
Kellam said he s pleased with how well he is shooting this year.
I am working hard to gain confidence in my game. I m focusing more on the mental side of the game this year than I ever have before, Kellam said.
Coach Lance Robinson is also happy with the team s performance.
Even though we have a lot of varsity experience, we continue to get better, Robinson said.
Robinson likes what he is seeing from his team of one junior, one sophomore, two freshmen, two eighth graders and two seventh graders.
Kellam credits his experience with working closely with Zach Wright, a former GCHS golfer.
Zach always spent time with me when I was younger, so I feel like it is my turn to do the same for the younger guys. It s really fun to work with them, Kellam said.
Robinson said he the Braves have fared well against other teams in northern Kentucky.
During the Boone County Rebel Classic on Aug. 8, the Braves tied for third overall.
That s not bad for Northern Kentucky, Robinson said. I think we ll be very competitive when we get to the regional.
The Braves lost to Dixie 173-182 on Aug. 23. They were led by Cody Kellam, who shot a 41 and Trey Adams, who shot a 45.
On Aug. 24, the Braves golf team defeated Boone County 177-195, and were again led by Kellam with a score of 40 and Bo Hammonds with a score of 43.
Kellam believes consistency in his swing will help his game continue to improve.
“I go out every day and work on my game. I changed putters recently and it has really helped,” Kellam said.
The Braves faced Campbell County Aug. 28 at Flagg Springs.
“Most of our players have not played the course but this allows us to work on our course management,” Robinson said.
The team will host Bishop Brossart at 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 29 at Eagle Creek.
“They are usually strong, but we are looking forward to see what we can do against them,” Robinson said.
