WILL HICKS IS ALL smiles after having won the Grainger Kornegay Memorial Junior Golf Championships. The Camden High School golfer is flanked by C.

It has been a pretty memorable year on the golf course for Will Hicks.

Earlier this spring, the rising freshman at Camden High School, helped lead the Bulldogs’ golf team to a 10th place finish in the AAA state golf championships by shooting a pair of 81 in the 36-hold state tournament.

Earlier this week, Hicks capped his summer season by winning the annual Grainger Kornegay Memorial Junior Golf Championships, played at the Camden Country Club.

Hicks fired a 73-69-- 142 to top fellow CHS teammate Austin Watson, who was runner-up with a 76-77 – 153. Thomas Burke finished third in the 14-17 year-old age group.

In the seven-and-under division, Wren Joseph and Jack Joseph finished 1-2 in the five-hole event.

Wills Kelly won the 8-year-old division followed by Evan Younghans and Matthew Farmer in the two-day, 18-hole format. Thomas Joseph was the 9-year-old division winner.

In the 11-12 year-old classification, Will Farmer won the championship with K.P. Cassidy and Mac Lindsay coming in second and third place, respectively. Parker Rankin was the 13-year-old division champion with Hammilton Calk runner-up.

Larkin Kelly shot her way to the girls’ title in the 13-year-old division.

The annual end-of-the-summer tournament honors the memory of the late, noted Camden Country Club golfer Grainger Kornegay Jr.
