West Union wins Adams County Cup

West Union High School took home the braging rights in the annual Adams County Cup on Wednesday afternoon at Hilltop Golf Course. The Dragons comfortably won with a score of 338, besting North Adams (361) and Peebles (568).

Elijah McCarty of West Union took home the title of Medalist with the best individual score of 80 while his teammate Craig Horton took runner-up with a score of 82. The rest of the top six was Bryant Lung and Patrick England from North Adams who both had rounds of 84. Eli Fuller and Noah Young from West Union had rounds of 86 and 88 respectively. All of those golfers were named to the All-County Team.

McCarty said his putting helped win him the Medalist title.

“I was getting off the tee good and also my putting saved me a few strokes,” McCarty said.

While Horton had the second-best score of any golfer on the course, he still says the team has improving to do.

“There is still plenty of room to improve,” Horton said. “Our overall scores need to come down. Personally right now my approach shots are what need work.”

McCarty said he agreed with his teammate about the team scores.

“I agree with Craig that the scores need to come down but we are a young team and have a year to improve,” McCarty said. “I think our whole team could improve on their short game and can work to be more consistent.”

While it’s still early in the season, and the team is focused on improving, both McCarty and Horton are confident in their team’s abilities as the season progresses. McCarty said this year’s team has “great potential.”

“I still feel as if we will be a solid and consistent team,” Horton said.
