BHS Golfers Riding Wave of Momentum Heading Into Big 10 Conference Championship Match

By Chris Johnson on September 15, 2023 via

The Bridgeport High School golf team will head into Monday’s Big 10 Conference tournament with plenty of momentum, having won three matches this week.
The Indians had a team score of 172 to edge Morgantown by two strokes at a quad match at The Pines. Following the Mohigans’ 174, Brooke was third at 186 and John Marshall was fourth at 188.
The Indians’ Anthony Hazey took low-medalist honors with a 40. Colton Gerhards and Audrey Kerr each shot a 43 and Tanner Straley’s 46 rounded out the scores that went toward the team points.
Two other BHS golfers had strong outings as McKenna Knotts finished with a 46 and Scott Wy had a 49.
In a tri-match at Bridgeport County Club with University and North Marion, the Indians finished with a team score of 161. Univeristy finished with an 180. North Marion had a 159 but that was with only three golfers rather than the four needed to be a factor in the team standings.
Gerhards and Straley each shot a 39 to share low-medalist honors, while Why had a 41 and Kerr had a 42.  Michael Hazy finished with a 46 and McKenna Knotts had a 47.
The Indians wrapped up the week by shooting a 172 at the Bridgeport Country Club to edge Fairmont Senior (173) and Grafton (178).
Gerhards was one stroke better than the day before with a 38 for his second low-medalist honor in as many days.
Kerr and Straley each had a 44 and Brayden Stutler rounded things out with a 46.
Knotts also had a 46 and Hazey finished with a 52.
Monday’s Big 10 champioinship meet will start at 9 a.m. and will take place at Tygart Lake Golf Course in Grafton.
