BELPRE, Ohio — A tough start to a new year.

The Gallia Academy golf team struggled to a third place finish Thursday during the opening match of the 2014 Southeastern Ohio Athletic League schedule at Oxbow Country Club in Washington County.

The Blue Devils posted a team score of 159, which was only three shots ahead of last place Jackson (162) in the four-team field. Defending SEOAL champion Logan won the team crown with a team score of 141, while host Warren finished as the runner-up with a tally of 157.

The Chieftains had four of their six golfers post sub-40 rounds, which also included a pair of co-medalist honors by Jacob Barstow and Logan Holbrook. Both Barstow and Holbrook fired match 1-under par round of 34 for the victors.

Dares Hamid paced GAHS with a 36, followed by Zach Graham with a 39 and Taae Hamid with a 40. Bruce Moreaux rounded out the team scoring with a 44. Miles Cornwell and Marcus Moore also fired respective scores of 46 and 47 for the Blue Devils.

Only 10 of the 25 golfers active Thursday posted a sub-40 score. Logan had four and Warren netted three sub-40 efforts, while GAHS and Jackson both had two.
