MOUNT CLARE – Evan Coffman earned low medalist honors for the Buckhannon-Upshur golf Buccaneers in a four-team outing Thursday at the Bel Meadows Golf Course.
Coffman shot a 38 to lead a group of 21 golfers.
B-U’s Isaac Lane fired a 41 for runner-up honors.
The rest of the Buckhannon-Upshur line-up include Easton Perkins with a 46, Landon Hitt and Braydon Hamer with 47s and Tucker Hurst with a 48.
The Bucs won the four-team outing easily with a 125.
Lincoln and Fairmont Senior were tied for second with 137s and South Harrison was fourth with a 151.
“It was good to get back to playing after some rain outs this week,” noted Buckhannon-Upshur golf coach Jason Westfall. “The team had some rust but pushed through it. Evan played like a veteran. He played his game and put in a good round for low medalist honors. Isaac was a bit rusty and still took second with a 41. Sometimes he is his own worst enemy. Easton, just a freshman, shot a 46 and is really coming on strong. He is accurate and consistent. He has a bright future ahead of him. The rest of our veterans battled the conditions and some rust. They weren’t satisfied with their score which I love about this team. The competition amongst our team is the best its been since I have been here. They each push each other to reach our goals.”
The match left the Bucs with a 9-1 record overall.
They will return to action today in the Marion County Invitational at the Green Hills Country Club.
1. Buckhannon-Upshur 125; 2. (tie) Lincoln and Fairmont Senior 137; 4. South Harrison 151.
