GALLIPOLIS, Ohio — You couldn’t ask for a better start.
The River Valley golf team opened the 2014 season in style Wednesday afternoon by claiming a three-stroke victory over visiting South Point in a non-conference dual match at Cliffside Golf Course in Gallia County.
The host Raiders posted a winning four-man team score of 232, which narrowly edged out the Pointers and their final tally of 235.
Logan Sheets led RVHS and all golfers with a 4-over par round of 40 over nine holes, allowing the junior to earn medalist honors at the event. Sheets was the only golfer for either squad to shoot a sub-50 score.
Zach Morris followed Sheets with a 51, followed by Grant Gilmore with a 66. Cliff Chapman rounded out the winning Raider tally with a 75.
Tyler Porter led SPHS with a 55, followed by Barbara Collins with a 56 and Eddie Chin with a 58. Logan Wade also had a 66 to wrap things up for the Pointers.
River Valley returns to action Monday when it travels to Riverside Golf Course to take on Point Pleasant.
