TRI-CITY AREA — The year 2008 was one which saw the Capac golf team dominate.

So, it should come as no surprise, when it came time to announce this year's edition of The Tri-City Times All-Area squad that Capac received the majority of those players honored.

Here is a look at who made the 2008 edition of The Tri-City Times All-Area golf team and the numbers they posted along the way.

Colton Randall, Capac.

Randall averaged 40.9 per nine-hole round during the Blue Water Area Conference Jamboree matches this past spring.

That left him first on the Capac squad and among those who attained Tri-City Times All-Area first team status.

His low nine-hole output, as far as BWAC encounters are concerned, came with 40s at Jamborees hosted by Armada (Timberwood Golf Course), Capac (Holly Meadows Golf Course), Imlay City (Castle Creek Golf Course) and Richmond (Richmond Forest Golf Course).

In addition to that, Randall helped Capac post a school record-setting 148 output to down host North Branch (149) and Lakeville (174) Tuesday, May 20 at Washakie Golf Course.

He managed a 38 over nine holes that day.

As far as 18-hole outings were concerned, Randall's credentials proved equally impressive.

He was medalist with a 75 at the Blue Water Area Conference Tournament hosted by Fore Lakes Golf Course; carded a 77 to help his team generate a school-record setting 309 output at the Brown City Invitational hosted by Holly Meadows Golf Course; fired a 90 at a Division 3 regional hosted by Frankenmuth's Fortress Golf Course; plus added a 90 at a Holly Meadows Golf Course-based Division 3 regional.
