The Madison Central boys and girls golf teams recently wrapped up outstanding seasons — and earlier this week were honored for those accomplishments.

Kyle Congleton and Tennye Ohr were named the KGCA (Kentucky Golf Coaches Association) Region 9 Coaches of the Year, while Mattie Neeley, Clay Pendergrass and Cooper Eberle were named to the all-region team.

Neeley was also named the Region 9 co-player of the year, sharing the award with Lexington Christian Academy's Laney Frye.

Earlier this month, Neeley received first-team all-state honors.

The senior, who has committed to Eastern Kentucky University, captured the title at the Kentucky Golf Coaches Association All-State Championship and also claimed individual championships at the Shelby County Invitational and the Gene Hillen Invitational.

The senior was the runner-up at the KHSAA Region 9 Tournament, losing in a playoff. She also took second place at the Villa Madonna Invitational and the Bullitt East Invitational.

The senior finished out her high school career with an eighth-place finish at the KHSAA State Tournament earlier this month.

Ohr and Congleton were also both named Region 9 Coach of the Year last season.

Congleton led a young team to impressive results. The squad — which featured three sophomores, a freshman and an eighth-grader — won two tournament titles and finished second at the region tournament.

Ohr led the Lady Indians to a tremendous season.

The Lady Indians participated in 12 tournaments as a team this season. They had three wins, six runner-up finishes and were third three times.

Ohr shared the Coach of the Year Award this season with LCA's William B. Frye.

Pendergrass earned all-region honors for the second-straight season.

The freshman claimed the individual title at the Ashland Invitational, finished fourth at at the regional tournament and placed 17th at the KHSAA State Tournament.

Eberle, a sophomore, shot an even-par at the Region 9 Tournament and finished tied for sixth.

At the state tournament, Eberle was tied for 35th after the opening day before slipping to 59th place.
