Boys golf roundup: Heritage turns in three top-10 finishers to win Continental League tourney

Heritage boys golf had three top-10 finishers to win the Continental League tournament at Lone Tree Golf Club.

"I think the team played well today overall," Heritage coach Nicole Poulos said. "It feels like their hard work and preparation that they did in the offseason is starting to pay off."

Paced by Sam Blackwood's first-place finish at one-over, the Eagles shot +25 to beat Regis Jesuit (+31), ThunderRidge (+37) and Highlands Ranch (+43).

"He's started the season pretty strong," Poulos said on Blackwood, who has been on varsity since he was a freshman. "He's gone above and beyond my expectations."

The Eagles' Ben Carrington and Drew Downard finished tied for seventh and tied for ninth, respectively.

"It's exciting to see these five guys," Poulos said. "They encourage each other and they're all friends, but they push each other to be better.

"I think we're in one of the toughest leagues and it's always a grind. It's exciting."

Highlands Ranch's Andrew Davis birdied his final hole to match Blackwood at the top of the leaderboard.

Calvin McCoy finished a stroke behind the two to give Regis Jesuit a third place individual finish.
