RAVENSWOOD, W.Va. — It was worth the trip.
The Miller golf team earned a Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division tri-match victory over Eastern and host Southern Thursday at Green Hills Country Club in Jackson County. The match was contested under the play six, count four format.
The Falcons were led by co-medalists Shawn Hayes and Chris Gamble, who each fired seven-over par rounds of 43. A 48 by Austin Doughty and a 51 by Taylor Newman rounded out the Miller total of 185. Scotty Duffy (55) and Collin Pargeon (63) also played for MHS but didn’t count toward the team total.
The Tornadoes were second on the day and were led by Jacob Hoback with a 46. Jonah Hoback added a 52, Tanner Roush marked a 56, while the team total of 211 was capped off by Tanner Thorla with a 57. Eli Hunter fired a 61 but did not count toward the team total.
The Eagles were led by Zach Connolly with a 53 and Ty Bissell with a 60. Kaleb Honaker posted a 63, while Dustin Frost and Dillon Swatzel both fired a 69 but only one counted toward the EHS total of 245. Sean Evans (82) also played for Eastern but did not contribute to the team total.
The Tornadoes and Eagles are both return to action on Wednesday in the Waterford Invitation at Lakeside Golf Club.
