ATHENS, Ohio — After two matches, Vinton County has proven to be the most consistent golf team in the Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division thus far. The Vikings also don’t have much to show for their consistency.

VCHS finished in a first-place tie with Meigs Monday night at the second TVC Ohio golf match of the season, but the Vikings again finished as the overall runner-up after the Marauders snatched victory with a better fifth-player score at Athens Country Club in Athens County.

Both the Marauders and the Vikings fired team tallies of 199, but MHS received a 55 from its fifth scorer — compared to a 59 by the Vikings five-man. Meigs, which finished fourth in the first league match, is now tied with Athens for second place in the seasonal standings — one loss back of VCHS.

Alexander was third overall with a 204, followed by Athens with a 207 and Wellston with a 219. Nelsonville-York was last for the second straight match with a team tally of 254. Blake Lindner of Vinton County was the individual medalist with a 6-over par round of 42.

Taylor Rowe, Derik Hill and Mitchell Metts each led Meigs with a 49, while Evan George rounded out the winning score with a 52. Austin Hennington came up with the clinching fifth-score of 55, while Ryan McCarthy added a 57 for the Marauders.
