After failing to finish better than fourth in the Central Piedmont Conference standings for eight consecutive years, senior Colby Moore shot a 5-over 77 and Davie’s golf team finished comfortably in second in the final team standings.

The CPC Tournament was held at Winding Creek on May 1.

That Reynolds took first at 25-over 313 was no surprise; the Demons dominated the league throughout the season. Davie and Reagan tied for second with 321s.

Moore paced the War Eagles at Winding Creek with a score that tied him for third place individually. Sophomore Anderson Beliveau and junior Sean Coates tied for ninth with 81s. Junior Cooper Drum shot an 82.

After finishing fourth, fifth, fifth, fifth, fourth, fourth, fourth and fourth the past eight years, Davie finished second for the first time since its runner-up team in 2013. The top of the standings saw Reynolds at 1534, Davie at 1582 and Reagan at 1600. Those three earned berths to the Midwest Regional, which was held May 8.

Three War Eagles received all-conference honors: Beliveau, Drum and Moore.
