Chino Valley High's golf team placed second in a three-team meet against Camp Verde and Bagdad on Wednesday, April 15, at Antelope Hills in Prescott.
Camp Verde won the match with a team score of 157 points. Chino compiled 187 points, and Bagdad tallied 197 for third.
"It was a great day, as all three teams had their lowest scores of the season," Cougars coach Jerry Behm said.
Camp Verde's Joel Beauty shot the winning low score with an even-par 36.
For Chino, sophomore Jared Minkus shot a team-best 43; the lowest score he's carded in only 2-1/2 months as a high school golfer, Behm said.
