TVHS golf squad wins road match

MARLINTON — The Tygarts Valley High School golf team played its second match of the year Wednesday against Pendleton County and Pocahontas County.

The match was held at Pocahontas County Country Club in Marlinton.

Pocahontas County does not have enough golfers to qualify for a team score; however, Pocahontas did have the low medalists, with Garreth Ryder and David Gibbs shooting 37 each.

In the team competition, Tygarts Valley won over Pendleton with a team score of 190.

Andrew Holbrook shot a 41, Wade Staten put up a 47, McKenzie Staten shot a 49 and Cole Arbogast turned in a 53.

“We are off to a great start this year and looking forward to a successful season,” said coach Jonathan Kyle.

The squad’s next match will be Monday against Pocahontas County and Gilmer County at the Raven Country Club.
