Bradberry fired a one-under-par 35 March 22 at Double Oaks golf course, as the Raider guys finished second in a three-team match.
“I was very proud of Bricen,” said head coach Brent Bird. “That’s his first match under par. That’s the first time we’ve had a boy under par in 12 years. That’s a big accomplishment.”
The Raiders finished with a 177, falling to Franklin County, which finished with a 169, and defeating East Jackson, which shot a 202.
