CLARKSBURG – In a recap of the last two weeks, the Buckhannon-Upshur golf team continued to find success on the links this season.

On Sept. 2 at Stonewall, the Bucs won a three-team outing with Notre Dame and Lewis County.

The Bucs shot a 173 while Notre Dame owned a 207 and Lewis County a 255.

B-U’s Landon Hitt earned his first low medalist honors of his career firing a 39.

“I was very proud of Landon reaching his goal and getting his first career low medalist honor,” remarked Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Jason Westfall. “Plus, anytime we see our rivals from Lewis County, we always want to do our best.”
Scoring for the Bucs were Evan Coffman with a 41, Isaac Lane with a 44 and Tucker Hurst with a 49.

On Sept. 8, the Bucs finished second out of four teams at the Green Hills Country Club.

North Marion won the quad with a team score of 165 while the Bucs were seven strokes back with a 172. East Fairmont was third with a 180 while Preston was last with a 191.

Coffman and Lane led the Bucs with 41s while Hurst shot a 44 and Easton Perkins and Brayden Hamer each shot 46s.

“This was a competitive match with the defending Big 10 Conference champion,” stated Westfall. “We had been successful against North Marion two times earlier in the season but they were able to get us on this one.  They played well and used their home course to their advantage.”

This past Saturday, the Bucs got their revenge on North Marion winning a tri-outing at Stonewall along with Elkins.

The Bucs posted a team score of 181 while North Marion was two strokes behind with a 183. Elkins was a distant third with a 224.

Coffman earned low medalist honors for the Bucs in the tri-match with a 39.

Scoring for the Bucs were Perkins with a 45, Lane with a 48 and Hitt with a 49.

“I was proud of our team focus and playing with the added pressure of playing our best golf,” noted Westfall. “We are coming down the stretch for tournament golf and we need to be ready to play our best and we did that today.”

The Bucs played a special match on Sept. 11, beating Robert C. Byrd in a dual outing by a 125-155 score.

Coffman was low medalist with a 40 while scoring for the Bucs were Lane with a 41 and Hitt with a 44 as only the top three scores counted towards the team score.

“Playing golf on 9/11 was special for us,” said Westfall. “It was a beautiful day to win and to honor the day. Coffman picked up his seventh low medalist honor of the season and Lane is returning to form. Hitt is steady and continues to be our best recovery shot-maker we have.”

The action left the Bucs with a 36-7 record overall and a 20-1 Big 10 Conference mark.

The Bucs were slated to play in Elkins this past Monday.

Buckhannon-Upshur will have their sights set on the Big 10 Conference Tournament next Tuesday and the Region I Tournament on Sept. 27.
