Davie’s golf team is in position for its highest Central Piedmont Conference finish (second place) in 10 years, with the War Eagles leading third-place Reagan by 13 strokes.

But it doesn’t look like Davie is going to catch Reynolds. For the third meet in a row, Davie lost ground to the Demons.

Reynolds’ 145 led the way at Maple Chase on March 28. Davie shot an 8-over 152, followed by Reagan (157), Mt. Tabor (167), West Forsyth (179), East Forsyth (193) and Glenn (216).

Colby Moore and Anderson Beliveau tied for third overall as they both recorded their best score of the season, an even-par 36. Walker Jones (39), Cooper Drum (41) and Landon Packard (41) were next for Davie.

The War Eagles’ last CPC championship was in 1997. For them to end that drought, they’ll have to erase a 20-stroke deficit to Reynolds over the final 45 holes. Reynolds stands at 762, Davie at 782 and Reagan at 795.
