The Destin Marlin boy's golf team finished second in the Okaloosa County Middle School Golf Tournament in Crestview last week, 12 strokes behind Ruckel Middle.
"It was our best showing of the year," said Destin Coach Kelly Richbourg in an email. Destin lost to Ruckel in a dual match earlier in the season by 34 strokes.
"We improved every match we played this season," he said, noting they finished 8-1.
