New Kent claimed first place in a Bay Rivers District golf match for the fourth time this season, while Jamestown’s Triston Buckley took home individual medalist honors at Kiskiack Golf Club.

New Kent shot a season-best 300 as a team, while Jamestown also shot a season-best 304 on Thursday.

The Eagles were led by Buckley and his one-under 71, but also got solid scores from Matthew Shield (76), William Bell (78) and CJ Montero (79).

In third place was Lafayette, which shot a season-low 327 led by Preston Ruescher’s six-over 78. Both Jacob Smethurst and Tawni Hatcher carded 80 on the day.

Despite placing ninth out of 10 teams, York made significant strides at Kiskiack, shooting a season-best 365. York’s previous best round was 392 at Kiln Creek.

The Bay Rivers District regular season will resume Tuesday at Williamsburg National Golf Club.
