     BOWLING GREEN – Bullitt East sophomore Zach Taylor advanced to play on Day Two of the Boys’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament on Saturday, finishing up with one of the best finishes ever for a local player.

    Taylor played through the rain on Friday, finishing before play was suspended later in the afternoon with some players barely halfway through the round. After play resumed on Saturday morning, Taylor’s 78 was good enough to get him into the second round as one of the top-20 scores for players not on one of the top dozen teams.
