Golf, lacrosse, JV softball results

• After finishing second in five straight Central Piedmont Conference meets, Davie’s golf team slipped to third in a match at Oak Valley on April 24. The less-than-stellar day – no one from Davie broke 40 – will likely prove inconsequential as the second-place War Eagles still left holding a comfortable 18-stroke advantage over third-place Reagan in the overall standings.

While a 1-under 35 score earned medalist, three War Eagles tied for 11th with 40s: Cooper Drum, Walker Jones and Sean Coates. Colby Moore and James Walsh shot 42s for Davie.

The team scoring: Reynolds 5-over 149, Reagan 156, Davie 162, Mt. Tabor 164, West Forsyth 169, East Forsyth 172.

• In an upset loss, the Davie girls lacrosse team fell 12-8 at home to East Forsyth in the first round of the CPC Tournament on April 24. The fourth-seeded War Eagles had defeated East on March 16 and March 28. East, the No. 5 seed, lost 21-10 to Reynolds the next day in the semifinals. Davie (6-8 overall) still qualified for the state playoffs.

• In the first round of the conference tournament on April 24, Davie boys lacrosse lost to West Forsyth for the third time, 13-9. Davie was seeded fifth, West fourth. Davie’s record sank to 4-10, but it did qualify for the state playoffs. In the semifinals, Reynolds crushed West 15-3.

• Madison Lewis blasted the first homer of the season for Davie’s JV softball team, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a 6-4 loss at Reagan on April 24. Davie had the momentum when the game ended via the time limit.

“Madison had a big home run to start our comeback,” coach Mike Foster said after Davie dipped to 7-5. “We just ran out of time. I truly believe if we had another inning, we would have won.”
