MORGANTOWN – The Buckhannon-Upshur golf Buccaneers had a rough start to the week as they finished fourth out of four teams at The Pines Country Club on Monday.
The Bucs followed that up dropping a dual outing with Preston on Tuesday at the Alpine Lake Resort.
The action left the Bucs a 4-7 mark overall.
In Monday’s quad, the Bucs posted a score of 388. Morgantown won the event with a 327 while University was second with a 339 and North Marion was third with a 374.
Parker Lockwood led the Bucs with an 87.
Also scoring for the Bucs were Jaden Westfall with a 92, Easton Perkins with a 104 and Jevon Westfall with a 105.
The other two Bucs were Tucker Burr with a 109 and Jesse Hackett with a 119.
Landon Spiker of University earned low medalist honors with a 78.
In Tuesday’s dual outing, Preston carded a 183 while the Bucs carded a 190.
Perkins shot a 46 to lead the Bucs while Jaden Westfall and Lockwood each had 47s and Burr carded a 50.
Also for the Bucs were Hackett with a 51 while Jevon Westfall owned a 53.
Preston’s Briar Manko was low medalist with a 39.
“This was a brutal part of our schedule, however, this prepares us for the Region I competition,” stated Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Jason Westfall. “Each match presents new opportunities to grow and learn from those experiences. My previous group did that and they were successful. When the time is right, I believe that about this new group. They are eager to do well, but they must trust the process. We saw some very good golf on Monday and Tuesday and that helps us understand where we want to be.”
The Bucs were scheduled to compete Wednesday in the Big 10/Cardinal Classic at Big Bend Golf Course and then play at Bel Meadow Thursday against Lincoln, Liberty, Bridgeport and East Fairmont.
The Bucs will be back in action Wednesday in dual with Grafton at Tygart Lake Golf Course. The junior varsity Bucs will compete Monday against University at the Golden Bell Golf Course.
