Visit us online at ~ S.upport Gilmer County Athletics ! Former Wirt County all-state Class A golfer Matt Moore has resumed his golfing career after a one-year hiatus. CEDARVlLLE 4-H GROUP - On Tue. August 3, the Cedarville Centurions gathered at Cedar Creek State Park for their yearly picnic. Here the community-minded kids are pictured in front of the One Room School House showing off a rhodedendron they planted for Arbor day this year.

(all photos and caption by Travis Beall, Sports Reporter) After helping the Tigers to a small school golf championship during his senior year nearly two years ago, Moore left for Marshall with the hopes of walking on and making the roster of a Division I program. However, things didn't work out the way he envisioned. "I went down there last year and the coach didn't even have tryouts," Moore said. "I got kind of disgusted and put the clubs up for a while." Those clubs have been in full swing lately as the former Tiger has now signed on with head coach Dennis Fitzpatrick and Glenviile State. Having picked the clubs back up and headed to his home course of Mingo Bottom to work on his game, Moore was throwing around the idea READY TO ENJOY SOME BOATING- Also during the yearly picnic one day of going somewhere to play. some of the 4-H kids like to take time to enjoy paddleboating. This is just one of the many fun activities for kids and adults alike to partake in at the park. The 4-H kids would like to let leaders Joann Woodyard (15 years), and Leah Sponaugle (5 years) know that they enjoy and appreciate all the things they do with them.

"I talked with coach Roy Alltop and he kind of got me set up with him," Moore said. "It was kind of weird really. I was just kind of talking about it and Roy overheard me and asked me if I was thinking about go- ing to Glenville. "Then probably a week or a week- and-a-half later, I got a phone call out that I wanted to play Division I golf," said the three-to-four handicap. "That's the biggest and best around and I thought I would give it a shot. "It's probably wasn't the greatest decision and I should've just gone around here. Some coaches around here showed some interest. I wasted a whole year down there and he didn't have any tryouts." Although he's not conceited, Moore is still a little bitter about his experi- ence at Marshall. "I can't really say 100 percent," Moore said of possibly being a con- tributor. "I don't know what kinds of courses and conditions they played, but I would've liked to have thought I could've hung with them." The Pioneers return everyone on the squad except No.l player Tim Fisher, a top 25 finisher in the NCAA Division II tournament and qualifier for the West Virginia Amateur at the Greenbrier. For now, Moore's content with working on his game at Mingo Bot- tom and getting ready for a new chal- lenge, something he sorely missed this time last year. "I'm just going to keep my head down and play for now," he said. 'Tm not setting too many goals. I'm going oftheblueanditwasCoachFitzpatrick to get in there and feel it out.
