Destin boys perfect on the links

Special to The Log

The Destin Middle School boy’s golf team ended their regular season undefeated with a solid victory over rival Ruckel Middle School on Tuesday at Regatta Bay Golf and Country Club.

With the win the Destin boys marked the second perfect season in a row for the Marlins, a win streak that dates back 24 matches to March 2016.

Destin eighth graders Tanner Morlan and Parker Seagle each fired a 30 to again lead the way. Palmer Lindsley shot a 38 while Isaiah Battereo and Miller Lindsley tied with a 39 which was enough for a comfortable 15 stroke victory over Ruckel, 137-152.

Coach Terry Gulledge was happy with the victory, but knows his team must be at their best on Monday at the Okaloosa County Middle School County Golf Championship at Blackstone Country Club in DeFuniak Springs.

“Blackstone is one of the more difficult courses we play,” Gulledge said.

“Our players are excited to play. It will be a challenge for our team.”
