Midcoast high school golf squads have turned their attention to the league playoffs and, perhaps, in the near future, team and individual play at the state tournaments.

The ongoing Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B playoffs are divided into North, Central and South. For area teams, Oceanside of Rockland and Medomak Valley of Waldoboro toil in the South and Mount View of Thorndike and Belfast the North.

The eventual winner of the divisional playoffs — three surviving teams — will meet in the league shootout on Thursday, Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. at the Rockland Golf Club.

In the first round of the south playoffs, No. 4 Medomak Valley and No. 5 Morse of Bath tied 4.5-4.5 on Wednesday, Sept. 22 in Rockland, while the host Panthers prevailed via a tiebreaker. There was no rest for the weary, however, as the Panthers, played at No. 1 Leavitt of Turner on Thursday, Sept. 23, in the next round of the postseason, but lost 9-0.

Additionally in the south, No. 2 Oceanside beat No. 3 Lincoln Academy of Newcastle 6-3 on Thursday, Sept. 23. Then, the Mariners lost to No. 1 Leavitt in the next round 8-1 on Monday, Sept. 27 in Turner.

Also, in the north, No. 2 Belfast beat No. 3 Nokomis of Newport 8-1 on Wednesday, Sept. 22, while No. 5 Mount View, which had only two varsity golfers this fall, forfeited to No. 4 Lawrence of Fairfield in the first round of the playoffs.

No. 2 Belfast will face No. 1 Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield in the next round of the playoffs on Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 2 p.m.

The three division winners, ultimately, will meet on Thursday, Sept. 30 in Rockland for a shot at the league title and spot in the state team competition.

The KVAC state team/individual qualifier is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 5 at the Natanis Golf Club in Vassalboro. Qualifying teams and individuals are back at that venue on Saturday, Oct. 9 for the state tournament.

Camden Hills coach Mark Wallace said the Windjammers of Rockport opted out of the Class A “shootout” portion of the KVAC playoffs.

He said his team played in a “pod” this season. He said his squad played Mount Ararat of Topsham and Brunswick six times and traveled to those opponents’ courses four times. His squad had only two home matches and seven road matches.

“Adding more time away from classes for nothing didn’t seem feasible,” he said, but added his squad would take part in the league state qualifier in early October.

Before the playoffs began, area teams had regular-season matches to finish.

On Tuesday, Sept. 21, Medomak Valley fell to Lincoln Academy of Newcastle 8.5-0.5, while Camden Hills lost to Brunswick and Mount Ararat by 7-2 margins.

On Monday, Sept. 20, Belfast beat Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield by one stroke in the four-golfer portion of the match to earn a 6-3 victory, while Oceanside of Rockland again fired on all cylinders to defeat Morse of Bath 9-0.
