With their second straight Region 11 win, the Morgan High golfers have tied Bear River for the region lead in overall standings.  Golfing under near-perfect conditions, the Trojans managed a tough Mt. Ogden course Thursday, Sept. 6, and came out in first place.  The eight varsity players that qualified for Morgan were: Seniors - McKay Kearsley, Aaron Babbitt, Jake Miles.  Juniors - Rhett Ballantyne, Garren Miles. Sophomores - Jason Bledsow, Connor Wilson. Freshmen - Braxton Ovard.
Leading the way for Morgan and taking medalist honors was Aaron with a round of 78.  Rhett tied for third overall with a round of 80.  McKay tied for sixth with an 82 and Jake rounded out the scoring and finished in 10th place with an 87.  Morgan’s round of 327 was eight strokes better than runner-up Ogden and 10 strokes better than the third place finisher, Bear River. 
Morgan plays their home meet Sept. 13 at Round Valley Golf Course.  Scores from the region tournament will be posted in next week’s paper.  Congratulations on the win and good luck at Round Valley this week!
