TCHS golfers finish second

CLARKSBURG – Seniors Jordan Brown and Alex Demary shot 42s Wednesday to help Notre Dame cruise past Tucker County and Braxton County at the Clarksburg Country Club.

Notre Dame won the competition with a 175. Tucker County finished second with 199 strokes, while Braxton County came in third with a score of 210.

The Mountain Lions were led by Seth Evans, 44 strokes, and Eric McCrum, 45 strokes. TCHS coach Sam Goughnour said he was pleased with his team’s play.

“We hope we can keep shooting in the low 40s,” Goughnour said. “The kids did well for playing on a course that they haven’t played on for two years. Evans and McCrum are both juniors and they’ve been leading the team this year. They’ve done an outstanding job.”

Braxton County’s Josh Skidmore was the low medal winner with 38 strokes.

The Mountain Lions return to action today at Canaan against Notre Dame and Moorefield. Tee time is set for 4 p.m.
