BEVERLY, Ohio — It could have been many things or a combination thereof. Perhaps it was the cool and breezy weather encountered at the Lakeside Golf Course, or maybe it was playing on an unusual day, a Friday afternoon.
The Wahama White Falcon varsity golf team stumbled big time in their TVC Hocking nine-hole golf match against their counterparts from Waterford High School. The format was scheduled to be a play six, count four, but because one of Wahama’s usual starters was not available because of his participation in the high school band, the White Falcons only had five scores from which to choose their four counting scores.
The final totals had Waterford shooting a very good score of 164 while the young men from Wahama shot their second worst score of the year, a 194. Federal Hocking was suppose to make this a three-team match, but could not muster enough players which caused them to forfeit to both Wahama and Waterford.
Waterford’s Brent Ginther was the medalist for the match shooting a very good 37. Cameron Bosner also played well posting a 39. Jordan Welch added a 43 and Randee Seevers posted a 45 to account for Waterford’s winning total. Isaac Trader and Josh Steward also played with their scores not counting in the final tally.
Of the five Wahama players, only three could shoot better than 50. Michael MacKnight led his team with a 45. Nathan Redman added a 47 with Nolan Pierce scoring a 50.
Both Benjamin Foreman and Mason Hicks posted a score of 52 with only one of those counting in the final score. Wahama’s TVC record now stands at 7-6 while the overall record is 29-14.
