BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. — The girls’ Ohio Valley Conference golf tournament seemed more like the Gallipolis Blue Angels Invitational.
Gallipolis was the runaway team champion and dominated the All-OVC team with five of the six first team selections and one of the two honorable mentions.
The Blue Angels had a 338-team score with the Ironton Lady Fighting Tigers runners-up with a 474 score. The Coal Grove Lady Hornets had a 482-team total while the Fairland Lady Dragons and South Point Lady Pointers did not have a team score.
Maddi Meadows took medalist honors with an 80 as she shot 39 and 41. She was joined on the first team by teammates Abby Hammons, Emma Hammons, Addy Burke and Jordan Blaine.
South Point’s Sidnea Belville shot rounds of 44 and 43 for an 87 total to earn first team honors and break up the Gallipolis dominance.
Coal Grove’s Elli Holmes shot a 104 with rounds of 53 and 51 to earn honorable mention laurels. The other honorable mention selection was Kylee Cook of Gallipolis.
