LYNN HAVEN — Mosley picked the right day to play one of its best rounds of golf.

The Dolphins turned in season-best and career-highs for two golfers and had two of the top three scorers to win the District 2-2A tournament played at Panama Country Club on Tuesday. Mosley sophomore Jeremy Senterfitt was the individual champion with a three-under 69, his lowest round of golf in his young life, besting the previous 72. Fellow Dolphin Josh Gainer carded a third-place 74 to help the Dolphins to the lone sub-300 total (297) in the seven-team event.

Gainesville Buchholz (305) was second and Tallahassee Chiles (314) third to join Mosley as regional team qualifiers. The top three individuals not on an advancing team also moved on to next week’s regional in Tallahassee.

Mosley lost its top three golfers from last season’s team. That said, the Dolphins failed to advance out of the district tournament despite having what could be considered a deeper roster with more talent.

“For that team to not get to regional and for this team to do it with the guys we lost is really impressive,” Mosley coach Todd Harless said.

Senterfitt was the second Dolphin to complete his round. Reed Maddox came in first with a 78, which was a few strokes higher than his average, but Senterfitt’s career day immediately put Mosley back into the pole position.

“There were nice conditions and everything just clicked for me today,” said Senterfitt, who shot a 34 on the back nine. “Everything just came together.”
