The Watauga High golf team finished sixth on Monday at the Orchid Hills Country Club in Caldwell County in a Northwestern 4A Conference meet.


Ben Beason paced WHS with an 84. Beason is ranked fourth individually among conference golfers, which makes his eligible for regional play. Brandon Reynolds had an 88. Alexander Central paced the field with a 305, and the Cougars with a team score of 1,507 owns a 121 shot lead on second-place Freedom for the NW4A lead. Tyler Grooms of A.C. Reynolds was the leading medallist a he fired an even-par 72. The Pioneers will take some time off before they travel to Asheville for a conference meet on April 21st. The Rockets own a 24-shot lead on East Burke for that third and final playoff spot. Now, Thursday’s match at High Point has been cancelled.

The weather has wiped out today’s schedule. The WHS baseball team, the WHS soccer team, and the WHS softball team had their games with Freedom postponed for today. No make up dates have been announced as of yet. 


As far as baseball is concerned, according to WHS coach Pete Hardee, the Pioneers will try to make their game up with Freedom tomorrow. Now, if the playing conditions aren’t favorable up here, they will move the game down to Morganton. If they do play tomorrow, you will hear that game on 100.7, MAC-FM. McDowell comes to town on Thursday in a battle for first place. Now, there’s two games on the schedule tonight. South Caldwell is at East Burke, and Alexander Central entertains A.C. Reynolds. South Caldwell begins the night in third place, one game behind WHS and McDowell for that number one seed.

There were three cancellations last night. Alexander Central-St. Stephens, Mountain Heritage-McDowell, and Freedom-Newton Conover were all postponed last night, and no make-up dates have been announced.

Also, today’s tennis match between WHS and A.C. Reynolds has been postponed as well.

Appalachian State baseball travels to Knoxville to play Tennessee tonight. If they play, the air time will come your way at 6:40 pm on WATA.

And the ASU golf team is in Charleston for a tournament. Former Pioneer Jacob Eggers was tied for 18th after two rounds with a two-day total of 150.

In track, former Pioneer Sallie Gurganus, a junior at the University of South Carolina, turned in a solid performance in the pole vault event at the Florida Relays in Gainesville last Friday. Gurganus cleared the bar with an effort of 13 feet, 1 ½ inches, which ranks her third among NCAA regional qualifiers.
