LURAY — Stonewall Jackson’s golf team continued its strong early-season play by winning another Shenandoah District mini tournament on Thursday at Caverns Country Club.

The Generals combined to shoot a 324, topping runner-up Wilson Memorial by seven strokes.

Stonewall’s Andrew Good had a solid day on the par-71 Caverns course, finishing with a team-best 79. That was just one shot behind medalist Nate Hildebrand of Buffalo Gap, who tallied a 78.

Also scoring for the Generals were Colton Harlow (81), Ben Rosenberger (82) and Eric Arnesen (82). Jonathan Koontz (85) and Kory Somers (89) also played for Stonewall.

The district mini victory was the Generals’ fourth in five tournaments this season. Stonewall will take a break from district mini play until Sept. 21, when they travel to Waynesboro for the final district competition of the year.

The Generals are back in action on Tuesday in a tri-match hosted by Clarke County at Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Course.
