ACCIDENT — Bill Shreve played a full 18 holes before the start of the Allegany County Disc Golf Club’s final round of March on Tuesday night at The Glades at Meshach Run in Accident.

The consensus among the six other competitors was that just maybe the 46-year-old Cumberland resident had tired himself out.

Shreve took a one-stroke lead on the field after No. 4 and cruised the rest of the way en route to a five-stroke victory. He finished with a five under par 53. Ethan von Hagel, 20, of Cumberland, was second with a 58 while Tim Farris, 26, of Wiley Ford, W.Va., rounded out the podium with a 60.

Noah Spradlin, 23, of Frostburg, and Shania Farris, 26, of Wiley Ford, tied for fourth place with a 64. Kevin Spradlin, 44, of Frostburg, finished one stroke back in sixth (64) while Matthew Marsh, 21, of Oakland, rounded out the seven-player field and completed his putter-only round with a 77.

The win is Shreve’s third glow round victory this month. He tied for second another time.

Shreve led by a single stroke at the midway point, holding a 27-28 edge over von Hagel. Tim Farris was third (29), followed by Noah Spradlin (31), Shania Farris (32), Kevin Spradlin 33) and Marsh (37). Shreve finished with seven birdies — 38.8 percent — while von Hagel tallied six birdies, Tim Farris had four, the Spradlin guys had three apiece and Shania Farris had one.

Shreve doubled his lead on No. 10 when he threw for par and von Hagel settled for bogey. Then, on No. 12, von Hagel ran into trouble and took a double bogey while Shreve birdied the hole. That increased his lead from two strokes to five over both von Hagel and Tim Farris.

It was the club’s fourth glow round and ninth play date in March following 18 weeks of successful doubles season over the fall and winter.

The club, founded May 14, 2022, is approaching the end of its first year of activities. Spring Youth League begins April 6 and runs through May 5. Spare time between now and then will be spent working on the Hoffman Park Ace Place Disc Golf Course in Frostburg in order to get the first public disc golf course in Allegany County ready for play. There could be time for a casual, pop-up round or two over the next six weeks.

Parents and other adults are welcome to play during Spring Youth League, which is free to play for all, but should participate with the understanding and expectation that the kids come first. The adults’ primary roles will be to help coach and mentor the youth as they throw from basket to basket.
