Joel Davis admitted he wasn’t quite satisfied with his golf team’s play.

But he’ll take the end result.

The Oak Hill Red Devils captured the Class AA Region 3 golf championship Monday at Grandview, registering a low team score of 339 strokes to defeat runner-up James Monroe (346) and the rest of the 10-squad field.

“We didn’t play as well as I thought we would,” said Davis. “Every time I looked at them, they were hitting the ball in the woods, and that’s a fact.

“We definitely left some golf out there.”

Overall, though, he said he was fairly pleased. “It was enough,” Davis said.

Oak Hill and James Monroe both qualified as teams for the state tournament next Tuesday and Wednesday in Wheeling. Individual medalists, exclusive of the team qualifiers, who qualified were Scott Prince (SS), Levi Stevens (WE), Nick Dent (SC) and Evan Muscari (WE).

Leading the Devils was senior Matt Sydnor, who shot an 80. Tyler Oliver, who qualified for states as an individual a year ago, shot an 81 Monday, Rob Stephens checked in at 83, and Jeff Lilly had a 95.
