  • GOLF: Dawson finishes strong to win Region

    LaRue County sophomore Cameron Dawson’s day at the Boys’ 5th Region Golf Tournament didn’t get off to a good start, but he couldn’t have envisioned a better ending.

    Dawson rebounded from a bogey on his first hole to fire an even-par 72 to win the tournament Sept. 30 at Elizabethtown Country Club. He became the first LaRue County golfer to win the region since Chad Hines in 1997.
