Consistency is the name of the game for Peyton Ogle.

Signal Mountain's star junior golfer shot par rounds of 72 both days in the TSSAA Class A state tournament at Sevierville Golf Club's River Course, where he finished third Friday.

In the Eagles' 15 competitions this year — 12 in the regular season and three in the postseason — Ogle shot above par only once. The district and region champion was 6 under this postseason over 72 holes at Moccasin Bend, Bear Trace at Harrison Bay and Sevierville. He made eight birdies at state and never the same hole twice while shooting 1 under on the par-3 holes.

Signal Mountain's run of three straight team titles came to an end with a third-place finish in Class A. Kingston won at 43-over 619, with South Gibson (636) second as the Eagles shot 650.

Cascade's Evan Woosley-Reed won an individual state title for the second year in a row, shooting 66 both days to finish a stroke ahead of North Greene's Aidan Collier, who closed with a 65 and was 11 shots ahead of Ogle. Woosley-Reed made two eagles and nine birdies over 36 holes.

In the Division II-A boys' tourney, Collegedale Academy's Morgan Baldwin closed with a 74 and tied for 10th at 9 over. Teammate Ryan Yoon was a stroke further back in 16th, and Boyd Buchanan's Gavin Greeson shared 17th at 15 over.

In the Class A girls' field, McMinn Central's Kerigan Klauber placed sixth after shooting 80 and 78 on the par-70 Highlands Course at Sevierville. Signal Mountain's Caroline Burns finished 15th, with her 81 on Friday shaving nine strokes off her opening round as she and Sally Hogue, who was 17th, helped the Lady Eagles finish fourth in the team standings.

In DII-A, Boyd Buchanan's Madison Butler and Abigail Robinson tied for 17th as the area's highest finishers in that tourney.
