Golf Team sweeps five-team match
Led by Ryan Redick's 41, Berkeley Springs defeated Hedgesville, St. Maria Goretti, Clear Spring and Martinsburg on Thursday, September 6, in a nine-hole match at Cacapon State Park.
Berkeley Spring's total of 179 was one stroke better than Martinsburg, which finished with 180. Clear Spring was third with 201, followed by Goretti with 208 and Hedgesville with 214.
"This was a very nice win for our program," said Berkeley Springs coach Dale McCumbee. "Four of our golfers shot in the 40's. This was our best meet of the year and I hope we can build off of it. We have a young team and they are showing good progress."
Zach Solomon shot a 45 for the Tribe, Andrew Rickli fired a 46 and Justin Mang added a 47 to round out the Indian scoring. Nathan Bowers and Geoff Blankenship also played, but their scores were not counted.
Redick's 41 tied for the low medalist honors with Martinsburg's Jake Yoder.
One week later the Indians traveled to Charles Town for the Doctor "Sleepy" Glen Invitational held at Sleepy Hollow Golf Club. Berkeley Springs fired a 380 to finish in sixth place in the eight-team field.
Once again Redick led the Indians with an 18-hole total of 89. Solomon added a 95, Bowers fired a 96 and Rickli finished with 100. Blankenship and Andrew Brock also competed for Berkeley Springs.
"We just aren't consistent enough at this point in time," McCumbee said. "Sometimes we play well and at other times we don't."
Jefferson County won the tournament followed by Martinsburg 339, Skyline 340, Clarke County 340, Warren County 365, Berkeley Springs 380, Musselman 385 and Hedgesville 396.
Tyler Jenkins of Warren County and Justin Stambaugh of Jefferson tied for low medalist honors with 78.
