MASON, W.Va. — There weren’t many birdies, but the White Falcons and some of the Eagles still made the most of a day on the links.

Connor Ingels paced Wahama with a 45 and Ethan Gray followed with a 47, while Mattie Ohlinger and Ethan Mitchell completed the winning tally with matching efforts of 48.

Ashton Barnitz and Brycen Bumgarner also shot 58 and 60, respectively, for the White Falcons.
