Moorman leads Centerville to district win

(Continued)

“Alex went all the way last year. He knows what it’s all about, but we fell one shot short of even making it (as a team) last year,” Carney added. “I think that’s been a goal for the kids from the get-go all this season.”

The Big Reds have shown the ability to be a very balanced team with different players leading the team at different tournaments. While Moorman was back in his familiar place atop the leaderboard, where he stood last year as a freshman at the 3A state tournament, it took rounds like a runner-up 75 score from Blake Dabney to help the Big Reds hold off Fairfield for the team title.

Senior Logan Dabney also added a 78, giving Centerville three players in the top 10.

“If we’re going to take it all the way this year, everyone’s going to have to do their part,” Carney said. “Alex is the main cog, but everyone’s got to pull their weight if we want to get to Ames.”

Moorman talked about the depth of the Big Reds, which has helped lead to a very successful overall year for Centerville as a team. Helping get his teammates to state has been what has fueled the defending state champion sophomore much more then anything this season.

“Logan’s been playing great this season. He might be averaging better than me this year. Blake shooting a 75 in the conditions we were (Friday) is also pretty incredible,” Moorman said. “I wanted the team to get there last year and I feel like I could have done more to get us there. I’ll do whatever it takes to help us get there as a team this season.”

Fairfield, who has made several recent trips to state as a team, beat out Southeast Conference rival Mount Pleasant by seven shots for the second berth to next week’s district final in Williamsburg. The Trojans and Panthers battled beyond regulation with their top two golfers, Matt Carr and Jordan Phamsouvandara, playing an extra playoff hole to decide third place after both qualified individually with rounds of 76.
