The Athens golf team collected its ninth straight league win in Tri-Valley Conferene Ohio Division play on Thursday following an 18-stroke victory over the field during the second league match of the year held at Franklin Valley Golf Club in Jackson County.
The Bulldogs — who won the final match of the 2019 campaign before going unbeaten en route to last year’s TVC Ohio crown — improved to 12-0 this fall after posting a winning mark of 186.
Alexander (10-2) ended up in the runner-up spot with a 204, while Vinton County (8-4) and Wellston (6-6) completed the top half of the 7-team field with respective tallies of 212 and 228.
River Valley (3-9) was fifth overall with a 246, while Meigs (3-9) was sixth with a 251. Nelsonville-York (0-12) was last due to not having enough players for a team score.

Caunnor Clay paced the Raiders with a 54, followed by Ethan Roberts with a 60 and Ethan Jagers with a 63. Scott Yost completed the RVHS total with a 69.
