After their girls teams had swept the top two spots in their sectional tournament, it was time for the West Union and North Adams boys golfs team to repeat the trick as they traveled to the course at Shawnee State Park on Sept. 28 for the Division III sectional tournament.  Throughout the fall season, the Dragons and Green Devils have battled on courses all over the area and the sectional tournament turned out to be their closest battle of all, with just a single stroke separating the two after the 18 holes of play.
The West Union squad, led by a 78 from Elijah McCarty, edged out the North Adams boys by a final stroke count of 339-340, in a contest that went right down to the wire.  The Green Devils were led by scores of 84 from both senior Patrick England and junior Noah Lung as they captured second place, which left both teams heading on to Monday’s district tournament. (The results of district play were not available at press time.)
Besides McCarty’s 78, the Dragons also recorded scores of 83 from senior Craig Horton, 89’s from senior Tyler Fowler and junior Eli Fuller, and a 91 from sophomore Jacob Pell.  After England and Lung, the Green Devils had junior Colt Shumaker at 85, junior Bryant Lung at 87, and sophomore Carson Hall at 107.
In the sectional tourney, the top five teams and the top five individuals not on a qualifying team all move on to district play, which meant that another Adams County team saw their season extend into Monday as the Manchester Greyhounds finished fifth and advanced.  The Hounds were led by the 18-hole score of 87 from sophomore Logan Hayslip, followed closely by an 88 from sophomore Dylan Colvin, 91 from senior Justin Aldridge, 93 from junior Jalen James, and 106 from freshman Zach James.
The county also had an individual qualifier as Peebles’ Bostin Robinson snagged the fourth of the five  individual spots, shooting an 84 for the 18 holes.
All of the district  qualifiers were in action on Monday at the Portsmouth Elks Course, with West Union looking for a return trip to the state tournament in Columbus. Look for a report on those results in a future edition of The People’s Defender.
