Golf Bucs take second at Bel Meadow

Tucker Burr puts the ball regulation on a par 5 from 145 yards.

MOUNT CLARE — The Buckhannon-Upshur High School golf team was back in action last Thursday, August 18 as they traveled to Bel Meadow Golf Course for a five-team clash. Head Coach Jason Westfall’s team earned a second-place runner-up finish after carding a score of 182, while Bridgeport picked up the team win with a score of 177. East Fairmont took a third-place finish with a score of 185, with Lincoln five strokes behind them in fourth with a score of 190. Liberty didn’t field enough competitors to qualify for the team competition, finishing last by default and rounding out Thursday’s field at Bel Meadow.

Jevon Westfall was the Buccaneers top individual competitor, tying with two other competitors (Tanner Bartholow – East Fairmont/Colton Gerhards – Bridgeport) for second-place runner-up honors after shooting a 42 on Thursday. Westfall finished six strokes out of the lead, as Liberty’s Jace Lacanster won low medalist honors after carding a 36. Other scoring Buccaneer golfers included Easton Perkins who finished just outside of the top four, carding a score of 43 and Tucker Burr and Jaden Westfall, who each recorded scores of 46 at Bel Meadow on Thursday. Meanwhile, Jesse Hackett and Jerin Westfall rounded out the list of non-scoring Buccaneers golfers, both posting scores of 57.  

Coach Westfall was pleased with his team’s performance last week, saying, “Our group is really digging deep to improve and I thought that really showed on Thursday. Our golfers are constantly looking for ways to mentally and mechanically work to get better and shave a few strokes off their score. This was a promising early test; I look forward to seeing how it fuels our team.”
