Golf Bucs finish third in a pair of matches last week


BRIDGEPORT – The Buckhannon-Upshur golf Buccaneers came up just short in a pair of outings last week.

The Bucs took third place in a three-team outing last Wednesday at the Green Hills CC in Fairmont and then took third in another three-team event just five strokes off the lead at the Bridgeport Country Club on Thursday.

“It was a tough week against some great players on some very difficult courses,” remarked Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Jason Westfall.

In Wednesday’s outing, Grafton took first place with a 174 while North Marion was second with a 175 and the Buccaneers finished third with a 188.

Grafton’s Caden Moore took low medalist honors with a 35 while his teammate Chris Miller and Robert C. Byrd’s Tyler Stemple earned runner-up honors with both shooting a 39.

Landon Hitt led the Bucs with a 45 while Evan Coffman shot a 46, Isaac Lane a 48 and Brady Hurst a 49.

The non-scoring Bucs were Tucker Hurst with a 56 and Breanna Morgan with a 65.

In the Bridgeport tri-match, the Indians won the team title with a 173 while Fairmont Senior was second with a 175 and the Bucs checked in with a 178.

Bridgeport’s Matt Aman carded a 33 for low medalist honors.

Lane and Gannon Satterfield of Fairmont Senior tied for second with a 41 while Coffman was tied for fourth with two other golfers with a 42.

Hitt finished the day with a 47 while Tucker Hurst fired a 48.

Brady Hurst shot a 59 while Brayden Hamner fired a 69.

“We are primed to take the next step,” stated Westfall. “We just need to stay focused. I feel Hitt has really matured in his game and his scores are steadily coming down. Coffman and Lane continue to lead us. They are two sophomores that don’t have much room to slip up and I am proud of how they handle that.”

The Buccaneers will be back in action Wednesday at the Pines Country Club at 4 p.m.
