Hagerstown 156, Shenandoah 185

The Raiders hosted the Tigers at Tri-County Golf Club Tuesday evening in a frigid golf meet.

Hagerstown’s Cochran twins dominated the competition, as Kyle eagled the second hole and shot a one-over-par 37 and Caleb had 38. Other scores for the Tiger varsity were Carson Orr 40, Kevin Beeson 41, and Nate Burns 44.

Scores for Shenandoah were Deley 43, Chapman 45, Lovan 45, Maple 52, and Starks 54

“We will be working on putting (19.8 average as a team) and our second shot,” Shenandoah Coach Thomas Zimmer stated. “The first two birdies of the year, with many more to come, were made by Daniel Chapman (hole No. 5) and Peyton Starks (hole No. 1). Tommy Deley had the low score for us with a 43. Drew Lovan, our lone senior, played a good bogie round. We had 11 pars. Hopefully, as the weather improves, so do our scores. We have a great group of young men who represent their families and school well.”

New Castle 159, Muncie Burris 205

The Trojan varsity team traveled to Cardinal Hills Tuesday evening for its season opener and defeated the host Owls by 46 strokes. New Castle’s Trevor Turner was medalist with a 38. Other scores for the Trojans were Brady Wheeler 39, Tanner Alfrey 40, Brennan Sadler 42, and Nolan Beam 43.

The Trojan junior varsity also won its season opener 85-120. For the New Castle JV, Blake Hammond shot 42 and Jacob Simms 43.

“We played very well in very tough conditions,” New Castle Coach John Burdsall stated. “It was very cold and wet with a brisk wind and we fought through it very well. Trevor really played will and was medalist of the meet. He seemed to be hitting all of his shots crisp and clean. If he would have putted a bit better, he would have really gone low. Brady played his usual great game. He had one bad hole that ran his score up, but other than that he was solid. Tanner Alfrey and Breenan Sadler really played well in their first varsity meets. They stayed out of trouble and avoided the high score on holes. I was happy with the total team effort in very poor conditions. Both Jacob and Blake shot very well for the JV. Everyone played very well for their first meet of the year.”
