Blue Angels place 2nd in tri-match


BEVERLY, Ohio — Both as a team, and as individuals, it was a record-setting day for the Gallia Academy High School girls golf squad.

That’s because the Blue Angels, on Tuesday at Lakeside Golf Course, established a new nine-hole team record as part of a triangular match in Washington County.

The Blue Angels, against Warren and host Waterford, fired a team total of 204 to take second out of the three teams.

Waterford rolled to a 40-stroke victory over Gallia Academy, as the Wildcats lit up Lakeside with a 164.

Warren, which the Blue Angels defeated in a dual match last Thursday at Cliffside Golf Course, was third at 217.

The Blue Angels are actually only in year two of playing as a full golf team.

Their previous nine-hole record was a 207 — set at the Westfall Invitational on Aug. 14.

Individually, it was another balanced outing for GAHS — with all six starters submitting sub-60 rounds.

Bailey Meadows mustered a 50 to pace the Blue Angels, followed closely by rounds of 51 by Molly Fitzwater and Bella Bonzo —and a 52 from Avery Minton.

The top four scores counted towards the team total, as the non-counting cards were a 53 from Caroline Evans and a 57 by Macy Jones.

The scores were career-bests for Bonzo, Minton and Evans.
