▪ Western Kentucky sophomore Billy Tom Sargent, an All-State golfer at Scott County in 2012 and 2013, earned his first collegiate win after co-medaling at the Sam Hall Intercollegiate in Hattiesburg, Miss., this week. Sargent shot a 5-under 208 over three days, a score boosted by a 65 in the opening round on the par-71 course. That was the lowest single-round score by a WKU golfer since 2008.
