MASON, W.Va. — It was just four days ago that Belpre defeated Wahama by 24 strokes and Southern by 44 strokes at the Green Hills Golf Course near Ravenswood. Not much changed in those four days except the course location and one of the opponents.

Monday afternoon found the undefeated Belpre varsity golf team visiting the Riverside Golf Course to face Wahama and Trimble. The outcome was very similar with Belpre posting a total score of 159 in the play six, count four format.

And, once again, Wahama finished second by 24 strokes with their final total of 183. Trimble’s final total in the tri-match was 214.

Low, consistent scores are what is required to win golf matches. Belpre has that ability. Sam Petty shot a fine score of 36 to win medalist honors for the match. Hayden Plummer also played well posting a 39.

Then, it was a pair of 42s shot by Brennen Ferrell and Alex Perry to account for the winning total. Jackie Cunningham’s 43 and Logan Plummer’s 46 were not included in the scores that counted.

The White Falcons were once again led by Michael MacKnight who posted a 42 for the match. Mason Hicks followed with a 44 while Michael Hendricks added a 45.

However, Wahama was not able to come up with another score under 50. Both Nathan Redman and Nolan Pierce shot identical scores of 52, with only one of those being part of the final tally. Logan Bissell also played for the White Falcons with her score not included in the team total.

Trimble was only able to post one score under 50 and that was a 46 by Nick Smith. Cole Shifflet shot a 52 with Brayten Hazen adding a 54. The fourth score counting for Trimble was a 62 by Tyler Sayre. The scores turned in by Jeff Andrews and Dow Pinkeron were not included in the final total.

Wahama’s conference record is now 5-4 while the overall season record is 26-13.
