Norwell cops Bellmont links tourney

    The Bellmont Girls Golf Invitational was captured by Norwell Wednesday at the Cross Creek Golf Course with the Knights taking just 381 shots to outdistance second place Canterbury with 393.
    Finishing in third place was Angola at 400 as they squeezed out fourth place Bellmont by one stroke at 401. Other participating teams included Bishop Luers 416, and Leo 435.
    The medalist for the 18-hole event was Jaycee Bunner of Blackhawk Christian with a 76 but unfortunately she had no other teammates and the Braves were not in contention for the team title. Bunner's round included an eagle three on the par five ninth hole as she finished the front nine in one-under fashion at 35.
