·1 min read

Sep. 10—In a field which featured the top teams in Kentucky — and on the course where the state tournament will be played in a few weeks — Madison Central put together another championship performance.

The Indians shot a +4, 288 to take the title at the Danny Spillman BGIT on Saturday at the Bowling Green Country Club.

Central beat out Bowling Green by eight strokes.

Trinity (+15) was third. Taylor County (+17) was fourth and St. Xavier (+21) was fifth.

Central senior Warren Thomis posted a -3, 69, and finished second. Clay Pendergrass shot a -2, 70, and tied for third. Warren Thomis shot a +2, 74, and tied for 11th.

Braydon Bond finished at +7 and tied for 27th and Radney Bales shot a +10, tying for 43rd.

Brady Smith of the Christian Academy of Louisville took the individual title with a -5, 67.

Hamrick made the turn at even after a birdie on No. 5 and a bogey on No. 7. He finished strong, though, posting birdies on No. 14, 15 and 18.

Pendergrass started strong, then struggled a bit at the end of the round. The senior had birdies on No. 2, 3 and 4. He had bogies on No. 12, 13 and 15, but did have birdies on No. 14 and 18.

Thomis had three bogeys on front nine — No. 1, 4 and 6 — but did have a birdie on No. 2. He played the back nine at even, with a birdie on No. 14 and a bogey on No. 17.

Bond had two birdies — including a two on the par-three No. 7.

Bales also had two birdies (No. 1 and 5).

Central is set to wrap up the regular season next weekend at the All-State Championship in Lexington.
