McDERMOTT — The Gallipolis Blue Angels did it as a team. Abbi Zornes did it on her own.
Gallipolis won the Ohio Valley Conference girls’ golf tournament team championship last Thursday at the Portsmouth Elks Country Club, but South Point Lady Pointers’ senior golfer Abbi Zornes came away as the individual winner.
Zornes had a 48 over the par 36 course to claim medalist honors by two strokes over the Gallipolis due of Addy Burk and Jordan Blaine.
Zornes, Burk and Blaine were named All-OVC along with Sidnea Belville of South Point and Lilly Rees and Avery Minton of Gallipolis.
Gallipolis had a 207-team score followed by South Point with a 237, the Coal Grove Lady Hornets at 258 and Fairland with a 261.
Ironton had only three golfers and was not eligible for the team title.
