The Golden Eagles took second place last Tuesday at Sinking Valley Country Club. They faced Hollidaysburg, Everett, and Bellwood.

“I was happy that our seniors got to play and they posted strong numbers,” said coach Funicelli.

Senior Chris Wilkins led the Eagles shooting a 92. This match was a special match for the Eagles because coach Funicelli decided to let almost all of the seniors play.

“I felt that I played good considering the conditions. I was glad that I stayed focused and scored well for my team,” said Wilkins.

Following Wilkins, senior Trey Kyle came in third for the Golden Eagles.

“Decent day, but rough conditions to play on the fairways,” said Kyle.

The overall record of the golf team remains the same after this match because this was a non conference match. Some of the seniors who don’t normally get to attend matches got to play in this match like Cody Harpster, Jeremy Byers, Tyler Hamp, and Tyler Beckwith.

“I am proud of Jeremy for scoring in his first match,” said Funicelli.

This Sunday the Golden Eagles head to Sunnehanna Country Club for the Wheeling Invitational.


Chris Wilkins – 92

Tyler Hamp – 100

Trey Kyle – 102

Jeremy Byers – 116

Cody Harpster – 117

Tyler Beckwith – 124
