Abingdon, VA (October 14, 2015) – Loudoun Valley senior Brandon Weaver and the Vikings won the individual and team VHSL 4A Golf State Championship hosted by Glenroche Country Club in Abingdon, VA on Tuesday, October 13th.
With the win, Weaver repeats as the back-to-back individual Golf State Champion. Conference 21 Champion, sophomore Ryan Hammer earned the fourth place medal.
The Vikings finished day-one with the lead in the team competition, and eventually won by 1-stroke over E.C. Glass! It was a total team effort, although Garrett Jenkin’s second day 4-stroke drop and Weaver’s 18th hole birdie were huge towards securing the victory. Scoring for the Vikings were: Brandon Weaver (70/74, 144), Ryan Hammer (76/78, 154), Max Cave (77/84, 161), Adam Lockhart (80/84, 164), Garrett Jenkins (86/82, 168) and Josh Bowles (91/94, 185).
“They’re a great group that is best motivated by the play from one another, said Coach Mezzatesta. This is a very special group and win or lose it is a joy to work with such high quality young men (and young woman) each day. Their enthusiasm is contagious.”
