Junior varsity golf Bucs play well as they win tri-match at Preston

Jaden Westfall hits a fairway shot for the junior varsity Bucs during their tri-match Tuesday at Alpine Lake Golf Course. Westfall finished second with a 51 as the Bucs won the team title by two strokes.

TERRA ALTA – The Buckhannon-Upshur junior varsity golf Bucs looked sharp in a three-team outing Tuesday at the Alpine Lake Golf Course taking first place.

The Bucs shot a 214, two strokes ahead of second-place University, who shot a 216 and six strokes ahead of third-place Preston who fired a 220.

Jaden Westfall led the Bucs taking second place with a 51 while Jevon Westfall finished in a tie for third with a 52 for the Bucs.

Parker Lockwood shot a 55 while Jesse Hackett carded a 56 to round out the B-U scoring.

Taylor Spratt shot a 60 for the Bucs while Tucker Burr owned a 62.

“This was a great learning experience for the junior varsity team,” noted Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Jason Westfall. “Most haven’t played many courses and Alpine Lake has numerous blind shots. So we needed to know yardage and hit spots. Jaden and Jevon were both on pace for career days but got in some trouble on the last few holes. We had a few get frustrated but they battled through. For Lockwood’s first match,, he played solid. Burr and Spratt need to relax more. They want to do well and are fully capable of playing well. Hackett is very close. He has vastly improved and when he puts it all together it’s going to be fun to watch.”

University’s Wyatt DeBord took low medalist honors with a 48.

The junior varsity Bucs will compete again Aug. 30 at the Buckhannon Country Club.
