North Baltimore Tiger Golfer, Brock Boyer, earned the BVC Player of the Year honors on Wednesday, at Country Acres Golf Course, capping a most excellent season, at the Blanchard Valley Conference Championship Tournament.
Boyer, who was Medalist in each of the four BVC tri-matches this season (other than a share with team mate Chad Wright at Arlington), went into the conference tournament with a six point lead over Liberty-Benton's Adam August and seven points over Michael Bils, from Arlington. With such a lead, it was Boyer's title to lose, but golf and pressure sometimes do not go well together, and he would be playing with August and Bils.
The steady Tiger senior scrambled his way around Country Acres course for an 82. August put the heat on, shooting 79, and Bils struggled to an 86 in the pressure back 3-some. Bryce Gorell (Hopewell-Loudon) shot a 76 for Tournament Medalist honors and Adam August (Liberty-Benton) scored 79 for 2nd.
As the cyphering was conducted, to determine who received how many points, it was not clear cut that Boyer would win. Over the course of an hour, as the players completed their rounds, with scores running high, in general, Boyer's lead would shrink to three points, but that would be enough to gain the Player of the Year title.
