  • BOYS' PREP GOLF: 2010 All-Area Team (11/22)

    North Hardin junior Anthony Irwin blossomed this season into the player many thought he could be.

    Irwin, who didn’t play last season, won the 5th Region Tournament in September with a 2-under-par 71 at Lincoln Trail Country Club. It was a memorable day for Irwin, who had a hole-in-one on the par-3, 188-yard second hole to spark his round.

    Irwin’s accomplishments earned him Area Player of the Year honors in the annual News-Enterprise/Coaches All-Area Boys’ Golf Team. It was something which caught him off guard.

  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: 2010 All-Area Team (11/22)

    The Area Player of the Year award might need to be changed to Lydia Gumm Player of the Year.

    Gumm, the North Hardin sophomore, was named the Player of the Year for a fifth consecutive year in the annual News-Enterprise/Coaches All-Area Girls’ Golf Team. Since The News-Enterprise began doing postseason awards for all sports, no one has won the top honor five times.

    “It’s a huge honor,” Gumm said. “It was a really fun year. It was a memorable year.”
