Blue Devils down Panthers

HUNTINGTON, W. Va. — Indeed, it was Miles’ milestone — and a good match by the Blue Devils.

Bolstered by a pair of scores in the 30s, the Gallia Academy golf team captured a dual match with Chesapeake on Monday — winning 167-192 at Esquire Country Club in Huntington.

Both the Blue Devils and host Panthers are members of the Ohio Valley Conference.

For Gallia Academy senior Miles Cornwell, it was a nine holes to remember.

Cornwell claimed match medalist honors for the first time in his career, firing a two-over-par 38 on the Esquire back nine.

His round was highlighted by an eagle on the par-5 14th hole, in which he reached the green in two strokes and rolled in a long putt.

Gallia Academy teammate Taae Hamid was the medalist runner-up with a 39.

The other two Blue Devil counting scores were in the 40s — Kaden Thomas a 44 and Jeremy Brumfield a 46.

Rounding out the Blue and White were Josh Davis with a 53 and Braden Simms with a 57.

Derek Lemley, an Ohio state tournament qualifier last season as an individual, led Chesapeake with a 40.
