MOUNT AIRY — For a first time golfer at Ashe County High School, Kendall Wagner certainly made the most of his senior season.

Wagner qualified for the 2A Midwest Regional and finished with a score of 105 at Cross Creek Country Club.

“This is a remarkable accomplishment for any high school golfer, but in particular Kendall. He is a first year golfer at ACHS and only started playing less than a year ago,” said Ashe County head coach Laura Foster. “I am very proud of him. Kendall and I both wish he would’ve started playing golf much sooner.”

Three golfers from the Mountain Valley Athletic Conference swept the top three finishing spots. Wilkes Central’s Quinton Metz won the regional with a score of 70, one shot ahead of Andrew Cheek from West Wilkes and two shots ahead of Wilkes Central teammate Zach Caudill.

As a team, Wilkes Central had the top score of the regional with 301, 11 shots better than second place South Stokes.
