The Eastern View golf team saw its four-match winning streak snapped on Tuesday, coming up short in a tri-match with William Monroe and James Monroe at Culpeper Country Club.

Junior Kelly Hackley was the Cyclones’ top performer in the match, carding a 44 to finish in eighth place overall. Freshmen Nathan Amos and Gaige Robson tied each other for ninth at 46.

As a team, Eastern View’s 184 put it behind William Monroe (161) and James Monroe (179).

William Monroe’s Hayden Gibson shot a 36 to take medalist honors on the afternoon. Teammate Grant Woodson was third with a 41, while Hunter Shifflett and Landon Morris tied for fourth after each finished with a 42.

James Monroe’s Grayson Wood came in second with a 40, while Noah Adams tied for sixth after notching a 43.

Eastern View head coach Patrick Thornhill said it was just a tough day overall for the Cyclones.

“We didn’t play our best [today],” he remarked. “The course was in great condition, but we had a hard time adjusting to the speed of the greens. We made too many errors around and on [the green], which is representative of the fact that we have to do a better job with our short game.”

With a young team, we will have our ups and downs. We’ll learn from this and move on, but we played against two good teams today,” Thornhill added.
