Bluetone golf improves to 6-1 / September 01, 2021

The Bluestone High School varsity golf team raised its season record to 6-1 last week with a win over Buckingham at Kinderton Country Club.

The Barons won the match with a team score of 191. Buckingham combined for a 236.

Bluestone’s Cameron Shriver won medalist honors with a 42. Taylor Seamans fired a 47, Tyler Driggs shot a 52 and Emily Morrison carded a round of 50 to comprise the team score of the top-four golfers.

Barrett Digh with a 52 and Greyson Arnold’s 70 rounded out the six-person Bluestone team result.

Over the course of the season, the 191 is the highest team score Bluestone has posted. The lowest score of the season was a 187 that the Barons posted in a second place finish to Randolph-Henry in the first match of the season.

In other golf action this season, Bluestone defeated Nottoway and Central of Lunenburg on Aug. 24. Bluestone carded a team total 191. Nottoway was second with 213; Lunenburg finished with 218. Nottoway’s J. Kim was medalist with a 42.

Cameron Shriver paced Bluestone with a 43 and Taylor Seamans added a 47. Tyler Driggs at 51 and Barrett Digh’s 50 made up the top-four. Emily Morrison (56) and Thomas Elliott (66) also competed for the Barons.

On Aug. 19, Bluestone produced a team score of 190 to best Prince Edward (210) and Buckingham (238) in a James River District matchup. The top-four golfers for the Barons were Cameron Shriver (44), Taylor Seamans (47), Davis Bowen (49), and Tyler Driggs (50). Close behind were Emily Morrison and Barrett Digh, shooting 55 and 60 respectively.

When the Barons began the season, not one team member had played at the high school level due to COVID-19 canceling golf play last year. Coach David Allgood said he is impressed with his young golfers.

“The team is coming along and getting better as they get more experience,” Allgood said. “I am proud of the consistency of the team.”

Bluestone returns to the links on Thursday when they take on JRD opponent Amelia.
