LeCroy finishes strong

Donoho sophomore scores two eagles on back nine, shoots season-best 69 to finish T-3; Falcons finish second as team

OPELIKA – Jacob LeCroy has been waiting all season for a round like he had Tuesday. It finally came through on the biggest stage, in his final high school tournament of the year.

The Donoho sophomore shot a final-round 3-under-par 69 on Grand National’s Lake Course – with two eagles on the back nine -- and shot up the leaderboard to finish tied for third in the Class 1A-2A boys state championship.

It was his first sub-70s round of the season. It lifted him into a tie with first-round co-leader Ike Alexander of Mars Hill at 2-over 146 and helped the Falcons finish second as a team behind runaway three-time champion Westbrook Christian.
