    “People have come to me, and I told them I’d listen to them and I hear what they’re saying, and I felt compelled to make a motion,” he said.

    The investigation is ongoing, police said.

    Elizabethtown freshman Kyle Jury, who teed off in the first group of the day on the first hole, settled down after a shaky front nine to fire a 6-over-par 78 on Tuesday at Bowling Green Country Club.

    “This year I was not as nervous as I was last year,” said Jury, who was making in his second consecutive appearance at State. “I still had some butterflies in my stomach.”
