McDERMOTT — Landon Roberts owned the course but the Gallipolis Blue Devils owned the tournament.
Roberts had a stellar day as the Fairland Dragons’ golfer shot a 75 to earn medalist honors but the Blue Devils claimed the Ohio Valley Conference Golf Tournament team championship Friday at the Portsmouth Elks Golf Course.
Roberts had rounds of 38 and 37 to lead the Dragons who finished as runners-up and ended a five-year run as league champions.
Gallipolis had a collective score of 340 for a 19-shot win over Fairland at 359. Coal Grove was third at 375 followed by Ironton at 397, Chesapeake 401, South Point 415, Portsmouth 426 and Rock Hill 467.
Roberts and teammate Jeremiah Fizer were both named to the All-OVC first team with Cam Mayo honorable mention.
Gallipolis landed Laith Hamid, Beau Johnson, Hunter Cook and Will Hendrickson on the first team and Cody Bowman was honorable mention.
The other first team members were Matt Sheridan of Ironton, Luke Jenkins and Landon Johnson of Coal Grove, Brayden Sexton of South Point and Jackson McComas and Carter Collins of Chesapeake.
