 Wyatt All-County, Panthers Place Second in Golf Tourney

April 30, 2008 - Tri High's Ethan Perry won low medalist and Knightstown's Joey Wyatt made the All-County team at the Henry County Golf Meet held at Memorial Park in New Castle Saturday.

Wyatt Finished with an 80, good for second place, shooting a 38 on the front and a 42 on the back. Wyatt birdied hole number 13 and had seven pars. He had six of those pars on the front nine, when he trailed Perry by just three strokes.

Dylan Rossman also shot a 50, getting two pars.
