Rain KOs tournaments

October 26, 2005

The rain outlasted a wait of nearly four hours before the opening round of the Maryland Class 2A/1A state golf championship was washed out on Tuesday at The University of Maryland Golf Course.

When the rain subsided briefly, an attempt was made at 11 a.m. to get the golfers to their starting position, two hours after the original start time. However, the clouds let loose again and play was canceled, forcing the 2A/1A into a one-day championship today at 9, weather permitting.

"I'm ready to go, let's play," said Smithsburg's Brandon Sheaffer, sporting a pair of all-weather gloves.

Most all golfers were bundled up with ski hats and gloves as the temperature hovered around 42 degrees in addition to a sufficient breeze that added more chill to the soaked atmosphere.

The cancellation forces the small-school golfers to play one good round on an individual basis to place high among the scores already established on Monday by 4A/3A golfers which included three 1-over par-72s for the lead. The individual scores are combined from all classes.

Among the team races, Walkersville and Smithsburg can battle it out for the 2A/1A title, separate from the 4A/3A.
