The Montgomery Catholic varsity golf team overcame a sluggish start with a strong finish to capture first place in the Auburn Invitational Monday at Indian Pines Golf Club.
Junior Jacob Stinson shot a 73 to earn medalist honors and junior Jason Katz shot a 77 to lead the Knights to a two-shot victory over host Auburn High School. Katz was named to the all-tournament team.
The Knights shot a team score of 313. Sophomore Chapman Barranco had an 81 and junior Corey Jackson had an 82. Zach Jones, an eighth-grader, shot an 87.
The Knights are back in action Feb. 28 and March 1 in the annual Blue-Gray Invitational at Wynlakes and Lagoon Park.
