Woodrow Wilson fired a team score of 235 to capture the Class AAA Region 3 golf championship Tuesday at Berry Hills Country Club in Charleston.
Zan Hill led the Flying Eagles with a 77, with Jonah Wilson one stroke behind at 78. Tucker Lambert’s 80 rounded out the team score, and Ian Thompson finished with an 85.
The Flying Eagles qualified for the state tournament, set for Oct. 5-6 on the Speidel Course at Oglebay Park in Wheeling.
“We exceeded expectations today,” Woodrow coach Butch Freeman told the Gazette-Mail of Charleston. “Of course my No. 1 and No. 2 (Hill and Wilson), they’re played pretty consistent. (Lambert and Thompson) both played better than they’ve been playing. Tucker Lambert, we told him not to hit driver today except one time and he kept it in play with his other club. That made a difference and he had his best result of the season with an 80.”
Oak Hill’s Jack Hayes shot a 77 to qualify individually. He and Hill tied for the second-best round of the day behind George Washington’s Mario Palumbo (75).
Hayes will be making a repeat appearance at the state tournament.
The team runner-up was George Washington with a 237. The Patriots won the championship last year, with Woodrow Wilson finishing second.
The other individual scores for GW were Anderson Goldman (80), Austin Willard (82) and Sam Alderman (88).
Oak Hill was third with a 258 and Greenbrier East fourth at 264.
