BMS golfers take middle school tournament title

SoVaNow.com / October 02, 2019
Sometimes it’s hard to use a single word to put a team’s season in perspective and such was the case Monday when the Bluestone Middle School Trojans golf team carded a 170 and won the middle school golf tournament at Briery Country Club in Keysville and capped of a perfect season within the SMSC.

Going undefeated in one’s district is never an easy task. And to win the regular season title as well as the tournament championship can be quite a task.

Bluestone entered the tournament as the No. 1 seed after winning the SMSC regular season title Sept. 23 in Amelia with a record of 6-0. Central Charlotte-County — which Bluestone beat twice this season after losing to the team for over 10 years — was constantly nipping at the Trojans heels.

Monday would be no different as a total of four strokes separated the first place and third place teams. Central C-C took second place in the tournament with a score of 173 and Powhatan earned third place with a 174. Amelia (206) and Park View (224) rounded out the tournament teams, respectively.

Bluestone’s Taylor Seamans earned an individual second place in the tournament after carding a 39 and was selected to the All-Conference as the No. 2 player. Francisco of Central C-C also shot a 39 which led to a playoff between him and Seamans.

Francisco would earn the third place, individual golfer and No. 3 spot on the All-Conference team. Allen of Central C-C paced the tournament as medalist with a score of 38.

Seamans and teammate Cameron Shriver were named to the All-District team.

Bluestone had an outstanding day on the links. The Trojans were the only team to not have a player post a score of 50 or above — the team’s highest score was a 48.

Seamans led Bluestone as team medalist with his 39. Shriver carded a 41. Davis Bowen and Tyler Driggs each shot 45. Emily Morrison and Jackson Allgood posted 48’s.

Bowen holed his first eagle in the tournament, sinking the ball on his second shot on the No. 4, par 4.

After the victory, the Trojans were presented the tournament trophy and the regular season trophy.

Trojans head coach David Allgood said last week after winning the regular season that he told his team at their first practice, “We had the talent to win the district and that was my goal.”

The season was a perfect example of the fact that when you work hard and put in the time in practice, amazing goals can be accomplished.

“This was a special team and they had a special season,” Allgood said after winning the tournament championship.

Allgood noted that he and the team also wanted to recognize their bus driver for the season, Paul Fuller.

“He has driven all of my middle school matches and is an important part of the team, getting us to [the] matches and home safely.”

Park View’s Lynch, who shot a 42 in the tourney, also made All-District.
