Moberly named top golfer in county, again

Somerset — For the second straight year, Pulaski County High School’s Elsa Moberly has been named the Commonwealth Journal High School Golfer of the Year.

Moberly tied for low round of 72 to place her tied for third  overall in the KHSAA Girls State Golf Tournament, finishing with a two-round total of 149 (+5).

Moberly was named to the Kentucky High School 2012 All-State Girls Golf Team for her solid play throughout the season. Moberly was among the top golfers in the state in each of the Lady Maroons’ competitions. Moberly tied for top individual honors in the prestigious Henry Clay Invitational.

Moberly’s third-place state tournament finish matches the program’s best with Lauren Scholl’s third place finish in the 2003 Girls Golf State Tournament.

Moberly placed 11th in last year’s state tournament, as a freshman. She has been the Region 9 individual runner-up in the past two competitions.

Moberly shot a 75 to place second in this year’s  Regional Tournament.

Earlier in the season, Moberly fired 2-under-par 70 to defeat some of the state’s top female golfers to take top individual honors in the Lady Maroons Invitational. Moberly became only the second Pulaski golfer to win the 10-year-old Lady Maroons Invitational.

Before the high school season even began, Moberly qualified and competed in the 2012 USGA Junior Girls National Championships in San Francisco, Calif.

Pulaski golfers Kellen Wilson and Justin Mayfield, Somerset’s Ross Perry and Zack Whitis, and Southwestern’s Dylan Bray make up the rest of the Commonwealth Journal All-County Golf Team.

Pulaski’s Kellen Wilson makes the All-County team for the second straight year. Wilson shot an 84 to place in the top 20 of the regional tournament. Wilson won the Caveland Country Club High School Invitational with a low round of 75. Wilson led the Maroons golf team for most of the season.

Pulaski’s Justin Mayfield was the only local male golfer to advance to the KHSAA State Tournament. Mayfield fired a 79 at Woodson Bend to place tied for 7th in the Regional Tournament.

Southwestern’s Dylan Bray made the All-County team for the second straight year. Bray led the Warrior golf team for most of the year, and shot an 83 to place 18th in the regional tournament. Bray shot a 79 to place 6th in the Rowan County Invitational.

Somerset’s Zack Whitis just missed out for qualifying for the state tournament. Whitis shot an 80 to finish tied for ninth, and was just one stroke off the state qualifying mark. Whitis fired a 77 in the Madison Southern Invitational and the South Laurel Invitational.

Somerset’s Ross Perry shot an 84 to finish in the top 20 of the Regional tournament. Perry fired a one-under-par 71 to take individual honors in the Madison Southern Invitational.
