ROANOKE—The rugged layout, marked by narrow fairways and fast greens, at the Stonewall Resort in Lewis County was the scene for the Class AAA, Region II golf tournament on Monday.
The course’s difficulty took its toll on all the players from the eight schools entered with nobody threatening par.
Washington High was able to win the Region II title, edging Elkins by three strokes. The Patriots had a team score of 260 and the Tigers finished at 263.
While Braden Hammond (Elkins) was the medalist with his round of 80, the Patriots were led by Robert Fleming (84), Dylan Mumaw (87) and Ryan Mumaw (89). Only the three lowest individual scores were counted toward determining the team stroke total.
Hedgesville (276) was third, Buckhannon (291) fourth, Jefferson (302) fifth, Lewis County (319) sixth, Musselman (337) seventh, and Martinsburg (362) eighth.
The Patriots will go as a team to the Class AAA state tournament at Oglebay State Park in Wheeling for the two-day event to be played on Oct. 2-3.
With Robert Fleming and Dylan Mumaw both carding rounds of 78, the Washington High golf team moved past the rest of the field to win the Potomac Valley Conference golf tournament.
The 18-hole event was held at the Sleepy Hollow Golf Course near Charles Town last Friday.
Ryan Mumaw carded an 80 and Patrick Burgess an 82 as those four golfers gave the winning Patriots a team score of 318.
Owen Elliott led runner-up Hedgesville (341 strokes) with a round of 78. Musselman finished third at 366 with Jefferson fourth with 376 and Martinsburg last in the team standings with 407.
Quentin Foust was Jefferson’s low scorer with a round of 87.
Washington Rusty Staubs was the conference’s Coach of the Year.
