Coffman low medalist as golf Bucs claim first in four-team outing

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.
