Individually, Westview's Austin Smith finished in a tie for fourth among 76 golfers at the Trojan Classic in Dyersburg, while WHS teammate Madison Hughey finished in 13th place.
The Westview Lady Charger golfers are sporting a 2-1 record after early action with wins over Crockett County on Aug. 14 and again on Aug. 19. It was Dyer County coming up with a lower score than the Lady Chargers on Aug. 19.
The Dresden Lions (172) improved their team record to 10-3 with wins over McKenzie (181) and South Fulton (204) in action Thursday at Sharon's Persimmon Hills Golf Course.
