Fairmont Senior’s golf team didn’t taste defeat during the regular season.

And after a playoff with North Marion they claimed the North Central Athletic Conference title.

The goal that remained was a state championship and Monday the Bears took the first step in accomplishing that goal at Preston Country Club.

The Polar Bears finished as the Region I runner-up to Wheeling Park and earned a team-berth in the state tournament for the second straight year.

“We’re very excited, very, very excited,” said Fairmont Senior coach James Cimino. “These guys have worked very hard throughout the year and have come through with flying colors. I couldn’t be any more proud of these guys tonight. This is a great, great group.”
