Noah Wilson is back to his normal dominant self.

Just a couple days after busting out of a two-week slump at the South Shelby Invitational, Wilson turned in a career best Monday evening.

The Palmyra senior turned in a 6-under-par score of 66 to earn medalist honors at the Tanglewood Quad.

Laithan Sublette finished 15 strokes behind his teammate for second place, while Lane Hammond and Landon Merkel tied for third with a pair of 82’s.

The Panthers easily won the meet with a team score of 311, while Highland (378), Clark County (390) and Monroe City (434) rounded out the field.

Panthers coach Marty Smyser noted the near-perfect weather conditions played a part in the low score for not only Wilson but his entire team.

"It was the best conditions we have played in all year," the Panthers coach said. "It resulted in a career low for Noah and every one of our guys shot 90 or below. I am just proud of everyone’s effort today."

Blake Elsberry led Monroe City with an 18-hole score of 87.

"Blake was a little disappointed but then after he thought about it for awhile he realized it was only his second time on the course," Monroe City coach Rod Galloway said. "Today was just to get a feel for the course and know what we will be up against next week (districts). I look for him to rebound next Monday."

Evan Janes (104), Mason Reyes (121) and Danny Dennison (122) rounded out the scoring for Monroe City.

"They struggled a little bit, but I look for them to do better next week," Galloway added. "It’s a challenging course."

Both teams will be back in action Wednesday morning during the Clarence Cannon Conference meet at Norwoods Golf Course.
