WEST JEFFERSON — The regular season slate of matches came to an end on Monday at Mountain Aire Golf Club.

“My guys continue to improve. We had our lowest team score of the season today at our home course,” said Ashe County head coach Laura Foster.

A pair of West Wilkes golfers tied for the best individual round. Andrew Cheek an Andrew Johnson each finished with a 34.

Kendall Wagner and Corey Carter both finished with a 48 to lead the Huskies. Ben Brooks shot a 50, Connor Jones finished with a 51 and Brad Colvard shot a 52.

“I would like to thank Philip Shepherd and the Mountain Aire Golf Club staff for their help at today’s match, and for everything they do all year long for our men’s and women’s golf teams,” said Foster. “Ashe County High School golf programs are very blessed to have such a supportive golf course staff.”
