Golf Buccaneers win at Preston

KINGWOOD – Evan Coffman earned runner-up honors as the Buckhannon-Upshur golf Buccaneers won another event this past Tuesday at the Preston Country Club in Kingwood.

Coffman shot a 39, just four strokes behind a Robert C. Byrd’s Andrew Bowie who fired a 35.

Coffman’s score helped the Bucs secure another victory in the five-team event, although Robert C. Byrd and East Fairmont did not field complete teams.

The Bucs carded a 169 as a team while Bridgeport was second with a 184 and Preston was third with a 195.

Landon Hitt checked in with a 42 for the Bucs for fourth place overall while Isaac Lane shot a 43 and Brady Hurst shot a 45 to round out the Buckhannon-Upshur scoring.

Bradyn Hamer fired a 46 for the Bucs while Tucker Hurst scored a 51.

“We had a good win today and we didn’t play our best,” noted Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Jason Westfall. “Coffman continues to lead the way for us. He started out rough but recovered to post a solid 39. Both Hitt and Brady Hurst had solid days. Lane was up and down, however, I expect him to right the ship. I am proud of how we competed even when we weren’t at our best.”

Bridgeport was led by Josh Gervias who shot a 42 while Preston was paced by Briar Manko with a 43.

The Bucs were slated to visit University on Wednesday.

They will return to action Friday as they host University, Morgantown and Fairmont Senior at Bel Meadow at 1 p.m.

The results:


1. Buckhannon-Upshur 169; 2. Bridgeport 184 3. Preston 195. Robert C. Byrd and East Fairmont did not field complete teams.
