BELPRE, Ohio — Belpre remains golden at Oxbow.

The Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division leading Golden Eagles of Belpre topped Southern 152-to-190 Friday night at the Oxbow Golf Course on Saint Andrews Boulevard in Washington County.

BHS was paced by match medalist Sam Petty, who fired an even-par round of 35. Hayden Plummer was second for Belpre with a 37, followed by Logan Plummer with a 40. Alex Perry and Brennen Ferrell each shot rounds of 41, but only one contributed to the Golden Eagles’ total due to the play six, count four format. Jackie Cunninghmam marked a 45 for Belpre in a non-counting effort.

Bradley McCoy led the Purple and Gold with a 42, followed by Ryan Shenkelberg with a 47. Jacob Hoback with a 49 and Tanner Thorla with a 52 rounded out the Tornadoes’ total of 190. Tanner Roush fired a 53 for Southern, but it did not count toward the SHS total.

A trio of Federal Hocking golfers also participated in the match, but only Zack Kidder with a 62 was able to report a score.

The Tornadoes are now 5-3 in the TVC Hocking this season.
