The Monett High golf team won its first home meet Tuesday at the city's Windmill Ridge golf course, hosting Cassville, who placed second, and Seneca, who finished third, on a blustery spring day.
Sophomore sensation Jacob Fair was a final putt short of par but prevailed with a nine-hole score of 36. Senior Kennon Cox was second with a 41.
Other Cub tallies were: junior Devin Steward, 44; freshman Kyle Woods, 44; and sophomore Travis Thompson, 49.
Coach Derrek Uhl has high hopes for his squad this year, which finished third in the Big 8 Conference last year.
"We need three golfers to play well on the same day -- and they can play," he said.
The next competition is at the Reeds Spring tournament tomorrow.
