Fresh off a trip to the Division III state golf tournament in 2016, Coach Ammon Mitchell and his North Adams Green Devils linksters opened their 2017 campaign on Tuesday, Aug. 8 with a trip to Buckeye Hills to participate in the Sharp Memorial / McClain Invitational.
It was a successful trip for the Green Devils, led my medalist Noah Lung, as they brought home hardware with a second place finish in the Invitational. Unioto, a Division II school, won the event with a combined team score of 314 strokes, with North Adams coming in second at 330.
Lung, a senior who has already signed to continue his golf career at Rio Grande University, won the individual title for the day, shooting a two-under 69 for the day. Bryant Lung came in with an 80, Colt Shumaker with an 89, and Uriah Hall with a 92.
“I was really proud of our team today,” said Coach Mitchell. “Even though golf is an individual sport, I am so proud of how we played as a team. Even though it was just our first match of the season, I hope to keep this momentum going throughout the year and hopefully go back to the state tournament.”
