Frankfort was second with a score of 200, followed by Pendleton at 234. Tygarts Valley was unable to field a complete squad, but had two golfers compete in the match.
Keyser’s Drew Matlick was the low medalist, shooting a 37 over the nine holes. Pendleton’s Haiden Waggy carded a 53, followed by Cameron Beachler with a 54. Brayden Beachler notched a 60 and Evan Teter finished with a 67.
Pendleton had one middle school participant in the match, Dylan Eye, who finished with a 55, playing the final seven holes.
Charlie Burgoyne, one of the team’s coaches, said the team has three returning players – Brayden Beachler, Cameron Beachler and Waggy – and three newcomers – Mason DiFalco, Eye and Teter.
A middle school match was scheduled for Aug. 10 at Valley View Golf Course in Moorefield. The next varsity match is slated for Aug. 17 at The Highlands Golf Club at Fisher Mountain.
Four members of the Pendleton County Middle/High School golf team – Brayden Beachler, Cameron Beachler, Evan Teter and Haiden Waggy – participated in the first home match of the season.
