WILKESBORO — The 2016 men’s golf season started last week for the Mountain Valley Athletic Conference at the Oakwoods Country Club.
Wilkes Central cruised to a 17-stroke victory with a team total of 153 ahead of second place Starmount with 170. Elkin’s score of 172 was good enough for third place, followed by West Wilkes (187), North Wilkes (189), East Wilkes (192) and Ashe County (214).
Eagle golfer Chandler Metz had the top round of the day, shooting a 36.
For Ashe, Kendall Wagner and Ben Brooks shared the top score with a 50. Corey Carter finished with a 54, Jacob Schell shot a 60 and Brad Colvard shot 61.
Ashe will be back in action on Thursday once again at Oakwoods hoping to improve on their season-opening score.
