After jumping out to a 23-stroke lead on day one of the Southern Hills Athletic Conference golf tournament last Tuesday, the West Union Dragons added to their margin Thursday.
The team combined to shoot a 145, 19 strokes ahead of North Adams in the team standings. Lynchburg tallied a total of 167 from their four golfers, keeping a solid hold on third place in the standings.
Ripley got another solid performance from Dylan Phillips, who carded a 36 to draw into a three-way tie for third place in the overall standings. Phillips finished day two three strokes behind West Union’s Craig Horton, who shot a 33 to earn medalist honors at the Adams County Country Club.
Scottie Ott shaved 10 strokes off his score for the Blue Jays while Brian Dunn knocked off 16. Corey Germann shot a 73 on the first day of the tournament, but carded a much-improved 50 on day two.
The Blue Jays finished day two with the fourth-best team score, trailing only West Union, North Adams and Lynchburg. Those teams sit one, two, three in the overall standings as well.
