Round One of the 2016 Southern Hills Athletic Conference Boys Golf Tournament, played at the Hilltop Golf Course, is in the books and as expected, the early lead belongs to the West Union Dragons, but perhaps not by as much as expected.  West Union sits atop the team leader board after nine holes of the 36-hole event, but with just a seven stroke advantage over second place North Adams,  Turning in their best team score of the season, the Ripley Blue Jays occupy the third spot.

The Dragons were paced by a solid round by defending individual champion Elijah McCarty,who opened the tourney with a 1-under par score of 34, but that didn’t totally pull him away from the field.  Just two strokes behind at 36 is Manchester’s Logan Hayslip, and three back at 37 are McCarty’s teammate Craig Horton and North Adams’ Bryant Lung. Three players are four off the pace at 39, North Adams’ Patrick England and the Ripley duo of Dylan Phillips and Scottie Ott.
When the four rounds of the SHAC Tournament are completed next week, the top 15 golfers will be named to the All-Conference Team.  After Day One, the top 15 also includes Noah Lung from North Adams (40), plus Tyler Fowler and Jacob Pell from West Union (42),
