With the conference season a week away, the men’s golf team recently took part in a non-conference match as a tune-up for the MVAC slate of matches.

Ashe County traveled to Oakwoods Country Club for a nine-hole match against several area teams.

Hibriten took first place with a team score of 165. Watauga was second, shooting 177. Wilkes Central (179) placed third, followed by Ashe (195), West Wilkes (213) and North Wilkes (228).

Individually, senior Zach Lawrence led the way shooting a 43. Ethan Warner finished with a 50, Abel Warner shot 51 and Jacob Worley also shot a 51. Brandon Badger and Caleb Carter rounded out the Ashe golfers, both shooting 56.

The conference schedule will begin at Silo Run Golf Course in Boonville next Monday.
