Led by nine-hole scores of 43 and 44 from junior Shawn Wright and sophomore Timothy Turner, respectively, the Bulldogs’ top four combined to shoot 193 — 12 shots better than defending champion Cass Tech’s 205.  Renaissance placed third with 216 followed by King fourth with 224 and Osborn fifth with 271.

“Surprisingly, they were really, really good today,’’ East English coach Robert Jenkins said of his team’s championship effort. “I have three juniors and two sophomores and they haven’t yet achieved what I think they’re capable of achieving.  When they do, I’ll be really proud.”

Juniors Markell Preyer shot 50 and junior Da Jon Johnson 56 to round out the Bulldogs’ scoring. Sophomore Kyle Jackson had a 67.

The top 25 individual finishers were accorded All-City honors. They were led by King senior Wilbourne Kelley V and Cass Tech freshman Ahmad Reedus, who tied for low medalist honors with sizzling nine-hole rounds of 35.

“I didn’t play so good,’’ Reedus said. “I was three under through five holes then I blew up and shot even. I believed I was going to come out and just win, but then he (Kelley) showed up.”
Kelley, after placing second as a sophomore and again as a junior, was satisfied with his co-medalist victory.

“I knew Ahmad was going to be competition so I came out here ready to play,’’ Kelly said. “I felt like I played okay. I was four over after the first three holes. Then I eagled the fifth hole and birdied the sixth. I parred the next hole, birdied the next and had a par to finish with a 35.

“I just knew I had to come out here and show out,” Kelley added. “This is my last year. I’ll be headed to Kentucky State next year on a golf scholarship.”
