KINGSPORT — Two Church Hill boys stole all the thunder Sunday when the 62nd annual Ridgefields Men’s Invitational concluded at the Club at Ridgefields.

Carlson Cox fired a second-round 69 for a two-day total of 137 and a one-stroke victory over Johnson City’s Bryan Sangid in the championship flight. Sangid also closed with a 69.

Last year’s runner-up, Chris Wynne, finished third at 139 after a 71, followed by defending champion Buck Brittain (74) with a 143 total.

Mike Poe, who grew up in Church Hill and now resides in Athens, Tenn., won his first Ridgefields Invitational tournament 38 years after he first entered the event. His two rounds of 71 gave him a one-shot win over Bart Cross.

Bob Clark and Mike Freels tied for third at 144.
