Bulldogs take to the links

GRAFTON — Andrew Holbrook shot a 43 Thursday to lead the Tygart Valley Bulldogs in a quad match at the Tygart Lake Golf Course.

“Every time we are out, I get more encouraged,” TVHS coach Jonathan Kyle said. “As our young team gains experience we will be very competitive.

“Our team scores continue to drop,” he said. “It was great to see the Tygart Lake course, as that is where our regional will be played.”

Grafton won the 9-hole match with 176 combined strokes. Lewis County took second place with 180 strokes and Lincoln finished in third with 197 strokes. Three players tied for the Low Medal with 39 strokes each.

The Bulldogs finished in fourth place with a combined team score of 202 strokes.

Holbrook led the way with 43 shots, while Wade Staten finished the round with 47 shots.

Mackenzie Staten contributed 52 shots to the effort and Cole Arbogast shot a 60.

TVHS is set to host Gilmer and Bath counties on Monday at the Raven Golf Club at Snowshoe Mountain. Tee time is set for 4 p.m.
