Led by first and second-place finishes from Robert and Peter Scott, respectively, the Eastern View golf team won a tri-meet against Battlefield District foe King George and county rival Culpeper on Monday afternoon at the Culpeper Country Club.
Robert Scott carded a career-best 37 to finish first among the 18 competitors, while Peter Scott was right on his heels in the second slot with a career-best 38 of his own.
The Cyclones had three other players finish in the top 10, led by Nathan Amos in sixth (46), Kelly Hackley in eighth (49) and Gavin Utley in ninth (50).
That collection of strong performances buoyed Eastern View to a 170 overall, while King George finished with a 192 and Culpeper a 201.
Eastern View head coach Patrick Thornhill was excited with the way his team shot the ball, pointing out that the 170 represents the Cyclones’ best performance in the last three seasons.
“The guys really played well,” he said. “Robert [Scott] set the tone for us. He did a great job executing shots, and whenever he got into trouble he did a great job of getting up and down. Peter [Scott] hit the ball and putted well. He really knows his way around the course, which showed in this meet.”
Ryan Tonetti (43) and Brett Caputo (45) notched fourth and fifth-place finishes, respectively, to pace King George. The Foxes’ Dylon Jones (50) cracked the top 10 as well, tying Eastern View’s Utley for ninth.
Brett Lauritzen was a standout for Culpeper, as his 41 landed him in third place. Colton Metzgar finished seventh on the afternoon with a 48.
Eastern View (1-1) swings back into action against district rival Chancellor on Monday at Meadows Farms Golf Course in Locust Grove. Culpeper is back on the course next Wednesday with a nondistrict match against Madison County at Culpeper Country Club.
