Hendersonville golf’s 16-year reign over District 9-Division I has come to an end.

The Greenbrier boys golf team combined to shoot a 313 to capture the District 9 championship last week at Pine Creek Golf Course in Mt. Juliet.

“It’s awesome,” Greenbrier coach Elicia Goostree said. “Greenbrier moved to Division I Large Class a few years ago, and we’ve never gotten first place (in the district). The boys are super excited.”

Tyler Williamson shot a 69 – the lowest individual score of the tournament. The freshman has been Greenbrier’s best golfer all season.

“He’s been playing golf since he was old enough to stand,” Goostree said. “It’s definitely in his blood.”

Junior Carson Davenport shot a 79, while his twin brother Connor Davenport shot an 80. The Davenport brothers are constantly competing for the lowest score in their household.

 “Connor has stepped up his game,” Goostree said. “He took off at least 10-15 strokes from last year. And Carson is right behind him. They are super competitive with each other and feed off each other.”

Senior Brady James carded an 85, and freshman Landry Hampton rounded out the lineup with a 96.

The Bobcats were set to play in the Region 5 championship at Clarksville Country Club on Monday, Oct. 7. Station Camp, Lebanon, Clarksville, Creek Wood and Rossview also participated in the tournament.
