PARKERBURG – The Buckhannon-Upshur golf Buccaneers played well in their final tune-up before the Region I Championships this week at the Parkersburg Country Club in a dual varsity and junior varsity outing with the Parkersburg Big Red.

The varsity Bucs carded a 361 while the Big Reds shot a 380 as action was played in a light rain throughout the day.

“It was a typical West Virginia fall day with cool temperatures and light rain all day,” noted Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Jason Westfall. “It was a great opportunity for the varsity players to prepare for regionals with 7,000 yards of golf. It was a great challenge for us and I am proud of how we handled it.”

Evan Coffman took low medalist honors again for the Bucs with an 85. It was the ninth low medalist honors of the year for Coffman.

Isaac Lane was right behind with an 86 while Landon Hitt shot a 90 and Tucker Burr a 100 to round out the B-U scoring.

Easton Perkins fired a 113 and Brayden Hamer shot a 114 for the Bucs.

“Coffman continued to shine while Lane has been heating up,” stated Westfall. “Which is awesome because we need both of them to be in top form. Hitt continues to be consistent and with these three, we depend on them greatly. Those three, they have been there for us all season. The fourth spot is competitive with Hurst, Perkins and Hamer fighting for that one spot. It is good to have more players able to compete than what we have spots available. It raises the bar. I am proud of how the players compete against each other but at the same time, support each other.”

The Bucs were supposed to compete in the Route 33 Cup with Lewis County and Elkins this week as well, but that match was canceled. Due to league standings with the Bucs being ahead of Lewis County and Elkins, the Cup will stay with Buckhannon-Upshur for one more year.

The junior varsity Bucs won their match with a 415 while Parkersburg carded a 453.

Tucker Burr earned low medalist honors and led the Bucs with a 99.

Jaden Westfall shot a 103, Parker Lockwood a 105, Jevon Westfall a 108, Jesse Hackett a 109 and Taylor Spratt a 115.

The junior varsity Bucs ended their year with a 7-3 record.

For the varsity squad, the win was their 50th of the year as they posted a 50-7 record overall, 33-1 in the Big 10 Conference and 7-4 in the region.

“It was great to get win number 50 on the season,” stated Westfall. “The senior class legacy that is being created will be something we will always remember.”

The Region I Championship will be played at the Moundsville Country Club.

Westfall said he expects to play Coffman, Lane, and Hitt and Perkins at regionals.
