Benton Rangers Boys Golf Wins Regional, Eyeing Bigger Prize

BENTON — The Benton Rangers boys golf team is the Class 2A Carterville Regional Champions, beating second place Carbondale by nine strokes for the title Monday.

Rangers coach Reggie Norman says the regional is only step one, because kids have redemption for last year’s state trip on their minds.

The Rangers will head to Charleston Monday for the sectional. Charleston was the team that edged Benton by one stroke last year for the state championship.
