Alex Rhea shot an 80 for Salem High’s best score in Monday’s River Ridge District golf match at the Hidden Valley Country Club.
Salem had a team score of 338 for fifth place on the day. Cave Spring was the team leader with a 313 while Blacksburg was second at 321.
Trey Joyce had the Spartans’ next best score with an 84, followed by Hunter King at 85. Andrew Rhea closed out the scoring with an 89. Salem was playing without Macy Johnson, who was out of town for spring break.
Salem’s next scheduled match was Wednesday at Draper Valley, although heavy rain was forecast at press time. Next Tuesday the Spartans are at Auburn Hills in a match hosted by Christiansburg.
“We had eight matches scheduled and I predicted we’d get in five,” said Salem coach Thad Snyder. “From being a spring coach I know what the weather is like this time of year.”
Snyder was previously a soccer assistant at Salem.
The Region 4D tournament is scheduled for April 9th at the Blacksburg Country Club.
