Hackley

Eastern View’s Kelly Hackley shot a career-best 42 in Monday’s match against Spotsylvania.

The Eastern View golf team won it’s fourth straight match on Monday, topping visiting Spotsylvania 181-192 at Culpeper Country Club.

The Cyclones had all six of their golfers place in the top 10, led by junior Kelly Hackley, who shot a career-low 42 on the afternoon to place second.

Sophomore Robert Scott (44) was third, freshman Peter Scott (46) was fourth, sophomore Gavin Utley (49) was seventh, and freshmen Nathan Amos and Mason Harris finished tied with each other for eighth, as they both carded a 52.

Eastern View head coach Patrick Thornhill was effusive in his praise for Hackley.

“[Kelly] is really starting to come into his own,” Thornhill said. “He was able to shoot a career-low round [today], and we needed it.”

The Cyclones’ four-match winning streak is their longest in four years.

“We are a young team that is gaining experience with each day,” Thornhill added. “We’re especially tough to beat at home. We just have to be able to shoot well on the road.”

Spotsylvania’s Rachel Detore took medalist honors with a 39. Troy Moskowitz (47) came in fifth for the Knights, while Jack DiFillippo (48) was 10th.

Eastern View returns to action on Wednesday, when it welcomes Caroline to Culpeper Country Club for a 4 p.m. tilt.
