H-DNL freshman gets a hole in one at Eureka Municipal Golf Course

Eureka High freshman golfer Jerome Lyons is enjoying a great debut season in the H-DNL, and on Wednesday it got a whole lot better.

Lyons, who is among the league leaders halfway through the season, hit a hole in one during a practice round.

The freshman aced the 163-yard second hole at the Eureka Municipal Golf Course, using a five iron.

Lyons has played a major role this season for the league-leading Loggers, who have won the last three rounds of H-DNL play, including a 22-stroke team win at Baywood on Monday.

The Loggers now hold a commanding 42-stroke advantage in the season standings and appear to be cruising towards the league title.

Lyons shot a 91 at Baywood, which was his second best round of the season, and he is now 10th in the league standings, trailing teammates Talon Vigil in first and Julian Goodman in fifth.

That leaves him just three places and three strokes out of a top-seven finish, which would guarantee the freshman standout an all-league selection in his first year competing in the H-DNL.

Just seven strokes currently separate the sixth through 10th places in league in what is shaping up to be an exciting and close race for the all-league spots, which are awarded to the top seven in the final season standings.

With three rounds remaining, Lyons appears to be peaking at the right time and his ace on Wednesday will give him some momentum heading into next week’s round of league play at Del Norte.
