Dragons still up after Round 2 of SHAC

Round Two of the 2015 Southern Hills Athletic Conference Boys Golf Tournament is in the books and Coach Carl Schneider and his West Union Dragons still hold on to the top spot, increasing their margin over second place North Adams with a strong performance on Sept. 17 at their home course, the nine holes of the Adams County Country Club.

The second day also saw a change in position at the top of the individual leader board as West Union’s Craig Horton took over the top spot, replacing teammate Eli Fuller. The final two rounds of the tourney promise to be exciting as there are no less than five golfers within four strokes of the individual lead.

On Thursday at the ACCC, Horton took medalist firing a 33 to pace all the golfers on the course and give him a two-day total of 74, two strokes better than teammate Elijah McCarty, who shot a 34 on his home course to make the jump in the standings. West Union also got a 37 from Jacob Pell plus a 41 from Tyler Fowler and 43 from Fuller to tally a team score for round two of 145.

Second place North Adams was paced on day two by Noah Lung’s nine hole total of 36, followed by Corey McClellan at 40, Patrick England at 42, Bryant Lung at 47, and Colt Shumaker at 47. The Devils posted a team total of 164 and lost 19 strokes to first-place West Union.

Lurking within those four strokes of Horton’s lead are McCarty at 76, and three golfers at 78, Eastern’s Jordan Johnson, Lynchburg’s Zach Blankenship, and Ripley’s Dylan Phillips.

Round three of the SHAC Boys Tourney was played on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at the Whiteoak Golf Course and the final round is set for Thursday, Sept. 23 at Hilltop Golf Course.
