JCHS Golf has up and down week

It was a roller coaster week for the JCHS Golf Team last week.
The Longhorns had their two best performances of the year and their worst and now they are trying to be more consistent.
The Longhorns started the week off with a 183 at Warriors Path against schools from the Big Eight Conference. Five of the six players were in the 40s, led by Jacob Henson's 45. Nathan Timbs carded his first score in the 40s as did Harley Reece.
“I wanted the kids to have a chance at playing this golf course,” JCHS Golf Coach Steve Arnold said.
Tuesday was a different story for JCHS.
The Longhorns struggled at Buffalo Valley with Jon Vannoy being the only player in the 40s.
“We have already played this course three times this year, so they should know the course by now,” Arnold said. “We did defeat Unicoi County, but not in the way I would have liked.”
Thursday was revenge for JCHS as they topped Warriors Path shooting a 177 at Pine Oaks. Jacob Henson and Blade Hampton both shot 43.
“I was very pleased with how they responded after Tuesday's score at Unicoi, but that's golf. I knew if they all played great the same day our scores would be like they were at Pine Oaks. The ability is there, the consistency is lacking.
Arnold feels most of the golfers are improving.
“I have seen improvement from all the guys except for Jon,” Arnold said. “Jon played so well in the Jamboree, it is hard to improve on 38, but he has been struggling a little and that is not like Jon. He will return to form soon and the rest of the team has to be a little more consistent and we will be fine.”
