Zach Arbaugh and Ean Carr drove the Yellow Jackets to their best score of the season at 172 with low medalist scores of 37 apiece for second place during senior night quad-match at Valley View Golf Course last Wednesday.
“That’s a great accomplishment by everybody on the team today,” Moorefield Golf Coach Wade Armentrout commented.
“I know Zach and Ean have been working hard to improve their game and they challenge themselves everyday in practice to make themselves better and it pays off in the end. They compliment each other and challenge each other to do well. Ethan being senior night, he has been a fantastic player for our golf team. He exemplifies everything you want as a team player and he is very coachable. He is a great guy to have around. Golf is a sport that really magnifies qualities in people individually and he definitely exhibits good character, integrity, honesty and hard work.”
Tucker County took the icing on the cake with the victory by one stroke led by senior Carleigh Bolyard with a 39 and Gaston Snyder at 41, while Petersburg placed third with a score of 176 led by Nick Fleming at 38 and Lucas Berg at 39, followed by Pendleton County with a 231 paced by Leah Loudremilk at 53 and Union’s lone golfer Manny Smith shot a 64.
This was the first time all season for Moorefield edging out Petersburg.
The Yellow Jackets had the two impressive rounds by juniors Arbaugh and Carr, while freshman Hayden Baldwin chipped in a 46 and sophomore Trace Miller finished with a 52 for the 172-stroke total.
