Nixon, Gilmore win inaugural JHHS football fundraiser golf tourney

Justin Nixon and Carson Gilmore fired a 10 under round of 62 to win the inaugural Jonesboro-Hodge High School 2-man Scramble Fundraiser Golf Tournament held on Saturday at Trails End Golf Course in Arcadia. 

Shannon and Jacob Brown came in second with a 65 followed by third place winners Robert Clark and Ken Blackson. William Nysinger and Billy Rogers took the first flight with a 76 with Lester Moore and Willie Burroughs taking second on a scorecard playoff over Chuck Kirkendoff and Jonathon Harris after both shot a 78 over the 18 hole layout. 

Justin Nixon also took home the closest to the hole prize and Garen Knighton won the longest drive contest. The 24 competitors that made up the 12 teams were treated to refresments on the course by Eda Qualls and Glenith Leonard and a fish and sausage lunch that was cooked and delivered by the Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office. 

“I really appreciate everyone who came out to play and for supporting our first ever fundraising golf tournament,” said JHHS head football coach Terrance Blankenship. “I especially want to thank everyone who helped make this possible including hole sponsors, Tim Wyatt, Jackson Parish Journal and LA Construction as well as Trails End for allowing us to have the tournament here.”
