Blue Angels compete at Fairland Invite


LAVALLETTE, W. Va. — When half of your half-dozen is honored, then it’s been a pretty good day.

That’s because the Gallia Academy High School girls golf team competed on Saturday in the annual Fairland Invitational, and three members of the Blue Angels captured all-tournament team accolades.

The nine-hole event took place at Creekside Golf Club, as the six-member Blue Angels shot a team total of 213.

By finishing in the top five individually, Molly Fitzwater with a 50, Hunter Copley with a 51 and Ryelee Sipple with a 52 all earned spots on the all-tournament club for GAHS.

Lilly Rees, with a 60, was Gallia Academy’s other counting score.

The two non-counting cards were Avery Minton with a 62 and Abby Fitzwater with a 66.

Cabell-Midland’s Skyler Sayre was the match medalist with a 47.

The Blue Angels return home to Cliffside Golf Course on Tuesday, and will play host to Fairland and Eastern with a tee time of 4 p.m.
