PORTSMOUTH – If the Ironton Fighting Tigers were hot, Brad Washburn was on fire. Ironton’s golf team was burning up the Shawnee State Park Golf Course Tuesday with a season-low 149 score.

Washburn, a senior, was sizzling as he fired a 3-under par 32 to lead the Fighting Tigers to an easy win over the Minford Falcons and Lucasville Valley Indians.

Ironton finished 33 strokes ahead of Minford which had a 182. Valley had a 211 team score.

Washburn was the only Ironton golfer who was mastering the course. Zach Christian fired a 37 and Adam Rudmann was one stroke back at 38.

Next in the scoring was Bo McGinnis with a 42, T. J. Parnell 43, and Andy Brown carded a 44.

"We played really well as a team, and obviously Brad had a great round. He was hitting the ball well," Ironton golf coach Bill Washburn said. "But everyone played well. Zach Christian continues to be a pleasant surprise, and Adam Rudmann has been consistently good all year."

Minford’s Jon Whitt was low man with a 43, Ryan Olive had a 44, Jeremy Mustain 47, Derek Swords and Gabe Havens 48, and David Humston 51.

Derek Lutz shot a 45 to lead Valley. John Street had a 49, Rachel Smalley 58, Jeffery Chandler 59, and Aaron Buckler had a 69.
