Ben Hunter of Suffolk, a junior golfer at the Apprentice School, set a school record last week by shooting a 67 (5 under par) as the Builders defeated Louisburg 300-
Hunter, who had eight birdies and three bogeys, capped his round by chipping in from 30 feet for a par on the 18th hole. That enabled him to improve upon the 68s posted by Brandon Rudisill in 2007 and current assistant coach BJ Maben in 2005.
Maben saw the chip on 18, which also enabled Hunter to tie him for the two-round school record of 144.
Hunter, a Lakeland High graduate, set Apprentice's single-season scoring average record last season at 75.05.
As a freshman, Hunter -- a rigger apprentice -- won the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association championships' individual medal by seven strokes. But he improved his scoring average from 77.5 as a freshman by 2.45 shots in leading the Builders.
