Graham golf claims season’s first MED match

BLUEFIELD, Va. — There may not be any kind of rebuilding for the Graham golf team, the G-Men appear to simply be reloading.

Ben Ramsey earned medalist honors with a 75 in the first Mountain Empire District golf match of the season, leading the G-Men to a 29-stroke win over two-time defending Group A champion Galax on Tuesday at Fincastle Country Club.

Graham, which finished third in the state last season, is replacing six seniors, but Ramsey and Zach Toohey, who fired a 77, are returnees who helped the G-Men to an MED match victory.

Graham’s four-person total of 326 was followed by Galax (355), which was led by John Bryant, who shot a 77. Grayson County (374) and Fort Chiswell (412) also participated. Bland County and Narrows don’t have golf teams.

In a non-district played on Monday, Graham placed second in the 12-team Bank of Marion Classic at Holston Hills Country Club.
